Using web-based data for the study of global English


Hundt, Marianne (2013). Using web-based data for the study of global English. In: Krug, Manfred G; Schlüter, Julia. Research Methods in Language Variation and Change. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 158-177.

Abstract

The chapter discusses the two basic approaches to the use of the world wide web in corpus linguistic research: web-as-corpus and web for corpus building. The progressive passive, a relatively elusive grammatical construction, is used as a case study to illustrate areas where webbased data provide useful additional evidence to standard corpora. The chapter also discusses possible limitations and pitfalls involved in these approaches.
