This volume will be of particular interest to readers interested in expanding the applications of corpus linguistics techniques through new tools and approaches. The text includes selected papers from the Fifth North American Symposium, hosted by the Linguistics Department at Montclair State University in Montclair New Jersey in May 2004. The symposium papers represented several areas of corpus studies including language development, syntactic analysis, pragmatics and discourse, language change, register variation, corpus creation and annotation, and practical applications of corpus work, primarily in language teaching, but also in medical training and machine translation. A common thread through most of the papers was the use of corpora to study domains longer than the word. Not surprisingly, fully half of the papers deal with the computational tools and linguistic strategies needed to search for and analyze these longer spans of language while most of the remaining papers examine particular syntactic and rhetorical properties of one or more corpora. Contents: Preface Analysis Tools and Corpus Annotation: Leslie BARRETT, David F. GREENBERG, and Mark SCHWARTZ: A Syntactic Feature Counting Method for Selecting Machine Translation Training Corpora Angus B. GRIEVE-SMITH: The Envelope of Variation in Multidimensional Register and Genre Analyses Paul DEANE and Derrick HIGGINS: Using Singular-Value Decomposition on Local Word Contexts to Derive a Measure of Constructional Similarity Sebastian VAN DELDEN: Problematic Syntactic Patterns Mark DAVIES: Towards a Comprehensive Survey of Register-based Variation in Spanish Syntax Gregory GARRETSON and Mary Catherine O'CONNOR: Between the Humanist and the Modernist: Semi-automated Analysis of Linguistic Corpora Carson MAYNARD and Sheryl LEICHER: Pragmatic Annotation of an Academic Spoken Corpus for Pedagogical Purposes María José García VIZCAÍNO: Using Oral Corpora in Contrastive Studies of Linguistic Politeness Corpu

Review:

[This book is] demonstrating a maturity in corpus linguistics which is welcome to note this is a well-chosen collection of papers, demonstrating the potential of corpus linguistics for contributing towards phrasal and discourse analysis. It is hoped that Corpus Linguistics beyond the Word will inspire more corpus-based researchers to think beyond the lexicon. in: ICAME Journal 32, April 2008"
