Taming the Corpus bridges the current quantitative and qualitative analyses of language structure and discourse, using grammar as a crucial source of investigation. The volume is divided into three parts: Section 1 (Words, Rhymes, and Grammatical Forms) explores phonology, morphology and style; Section 2 (Not Only "Lost" in Translation) examines inter-language relations, especially translation theory; Section 3 (Understanding Discourse) presents different aspects of text (legal language, gender, and ideology). Many of the studies draw their data from the Czech National Corpus, the largest Slavic language corpora. The volume presents a diverse array of data from Czech that is unique in and of itself and provides large empirical data to confirm some of the claims made by the current qualitative research. More importantly, however, approaches based on the explicit inflectional features of the language expand the understanding of language and text in ways that have not been executed in predominantly English-based quantitative research. The book is of interest to students and scholars in corpus linguistics as well as the humanities and social sciences.
