    One thought on “Text, Discourse and Corpora: Theory and Analysis”

    1. This book filled a gap in my learning about corpus analysis: it provides some theory around the practice of corpus analysis. I definitely needed something like this, since everything I had read to that point focused mostly on methodology. Michael Stubbs essays are especially well done, I think.
