Never before have so many electronic resources been available to support the teaching of English. From a wide variety of online corpora to specialized archives of speech and writing, teachers and students are faced with the challenge of understanding these resources and selecting those appropriate to their purpose. This accessible introduction demonstrates how freely available corpora can be used for the study of English at different linguistic levels, including vocabulary, grammar, discourse and pronunciation.

With clear descriptions and a practical approach, Exploring English with Online Corpora:
· introduces readers to a range of online corpora that can be used to explore and analyse the English language
· provides a detailed guide to interpreting corpus data
· demonstrates how teachers and lecturers can integrate corpora into language courses
