Abstract

The corpus approach in its contemporary framework marks the return of linguistics within the boundaries of empirically founded sciences from the long predominance of introspection-based analysis. The first part of this paper elaborates on the advent of corpus based research in linguistics. The second part describes the notion and types of corpora. The third part describes the advantages of corpus-based research and the basic characteristics of corpus linguistics and elaborates on the most relevant terminology. The last part of the paper explains certain limitations of the corpus-based analysis.

Keywords: corpus, discourse, frequency, type, token, concordancer, statistics
