This is the first book to give an overall survey of the ongoing projects in diachronic computerized corpora of English. The volume is based on the papers read at the First International Colloquium for English Diachronic Corpora, held at Cambridge in March 1993. Twelve historical English corpora, completed and in preparation, are introduced in the volume. Most of these can be described as mult-genre corpora; a few concentrate either on one genre only, or on the works of a single author. Chronologically, these corpora span more than twelve centuries, from the beginnings of documented Old English up to our days. Besides Southern British English, corpus projects on Older Scots, Early American English, and Irish English are introduced. Some of the reports contain discussions of such important questions as genre division, normalization, and problems ofsampling. In addition to corpus compilation projects, the volume contains reports on major projects in the field of the history of English utilizing corpora and specialized software. Two linguistic atlases (Early Middle English, Older Scots), and two dictionary projects (Early Modern English and Samuel Johnson), are introduced, as well as the English Historical Thesaurus, with a separate paper on the Old English Thesaurus. The volume also contains up-to-date information on software specially developed for historical corpus work (LEXA), on different kinds of network resources, and on the Text Encoding Intiative (TEI).

Diese Arbeit beschreibt die Entwicklung englischer Partizipial- und Gerundialkonstruktionen in mittelenglischer und frühneuenglischer Zeit und untersucht dabei die Funktion von Textsorten im Prozeß des Sprachwandels. Aufbauend auf einer detaillierten Analyse sämtlicher Partizipial- und Gerundialkonstruktionen in sechs Textsorten einer überarbeiteten und erweiterten Fassung des Helsinki-Korpus wird gezeigt, daß sich die Hauptkonstruktionstypen in einer geordneten Reihenfolge über Textsorten ausbreiten. Die Funktion von Textsorten im Sprachwandel kann dabei als Katalysatorenfunktion bestimmt werden. Textsorten sind für die Ausbreitung, nicht aber für die Entstehung einer Konstruktion verantwortlich. Die Katalysatorenfunktion basiert einerseits auf dem spezifischen funktionalen Profil der Textsorten, andererseits auf ihrer Position innerhalb der Sozial- und Kulturgeschichte der englischen Sprache. Textsortenabhängiger Sprachwandel, wie er sich in der Ausbreitung von Partizipial- und Gerundialkonstruktionen zeigt, wird als Beispiel für die Elaborierungsphase im Prozeß der Standardisierung und der Ausbreitung von Schriftlichkeit gewertet.

This is the first full scale attempt to record the diachronic development of this important English language variety and includes extensive essays by some of the foremost international scholars of the Scots language. The book attempts to provide a detailed and technical description of the syntax, phonology, morphology and vocabulary of the language in two main periods: the beginnings to 1700 and from 1700 to the present day. The language's geographical variation both in the past and at the present time are fully documented and the sociolinguistic forces which lie behind linguistic innovation and its transmission provide a principal theme running through the book.

This alphabetic guide provides definitions and discussion of key terms used in corpus linguistics. Corpus data is being used in a growing number of English and Linguistics departments which have no record of past research with corpus data. This is the first comprehensive glossary of the many specialist terms in corpus linguistics and will be useful for corpus linguists and non corpus linguists alike. Clearly written, by a team of experienced academics in the field, the glossary provides full coverage of both traditional and contemporary terminology. Entries are focused around the following broad groupings:* Important corpora* Key technical terms in the field* Key linguistic terms relevant to corpus-based research* Key statistical measures used in corpus linguistics* Key computer programme/retrieval systems used in the construction and exploitation of corpora* Standards applied within the field of corpus linguistics.
