A Taste for Corpora!

In honour of Sylviane Granger
Edited by Fanny Meunier, Sylvie De Cock, Gaëtanelle Gilquin & Magali Paquot
"A Taste for Corpora" is a tribute to Professor Sylviane Granger, and a special gift for her 60th birthday. The eleven chapters it is made up of tackle corpora from a wide range of perspectives, thus reflecting Sylviane’s insatiable taste for corpora and her many interests. They were written by distinguished scholars whose work is appreciated by Sylviane, but who are also (long-standing) friends of hers. The different contributions aim to shed light on the numerous linguistic and pedagogical uses to which corpora can be put. They present cutting-edge research in the authors’ respective domain of expertise and suggest directions for the future. Given the many potential uses of corpora, the volume is inevitably incomplete and limited in size and focus, but we nevertheless believe that it will offer readers an informed account of the important role that corpora play in applied linguistics today.
