Dear colleagues,

Covid-19 has turned the world on its head. The pandemic triggered a global state of medical emergency. But it is more than that. People the world over have been required to make sense of life in new ways. Language is one of the most fundamental tools we have to make sense of our social reality, including its foundational role in constructing and communicating our understandings and experiences of all matters relating to health and illness.

We have just published “Language and Covid-19”, a special issue of the International Journal of Corpus Linguistics 26:4 (2020) https://www.jbe-platform.com/content/journals/15699811/26/4

When we circulated the call for papers for this Special Issue in July 2020, we received over 100 proposals. This, we feel, is testament to the applied nature of corpus linguistics, as well as to the innovativeness of our research community to respond rapidly and creatively to the most urgent global challenges of our time.

We are grateful to all the authors, reviewers and the whole IJCL team who jointly produced this special issue.

We hope you will find this collection of papers both interesting and useful.
