By Stefan Th Gries, Stefanie Wulff, Mark Davies

This quantity presents an summary of 4 at present booming components within the self-discipline of corpus linguistics. the 1st part is worried with stories of the historical past and improvement of morphological and syntactic phenomena in English, Spanish, and Mandarin chinese language. the second one part comprises case reports investigating the features and contexts of use of other morphological and syntactic varieties in English, Spanish, Russian, and Mandarin chinese language. The 3rd part comprises reports within the box of style and sign in from settings as varied as future health, name middle, educational, and criminal discourse. the ultimate part beneficial properties papers refining current, and exploring new, corpus-linguistic tools: dispersions, textual content mining, corpus similarity, in addition to the advance of extraction styles and the assessment of tagging equipment.

Also, other coefficients can be used that measure degree of correlation rather than distance, such as Pearson’s r or Spearman’s ρ (see also Oakes, 1998). However, for this experiment, the simple Euclidean distance was preferred for this presentation because of its simplicity and straightforwardness. Thus, distances between each pair of profiles were measured using the formula 39 Unsupervised Diachronic Morphological Profiles d jk = ∑in=1 ( X ij − X ik ) 2 where Xij stands for the affixality value of the morphological item i in profile j, and Xik stands for the affixality value of the same item in morphological profile k; n is the number of items they share.

John objected to changing the agreement, but Mac did not object to it. By contrast, VP Deletion is possible in the case of (1a), but not in the case of (1b): (4) a. John wanted to change the agreement, but Mac did not want to. b. *John objected to changing the agreement, but Mac did not object to. To explain such differences as those observed in (3a–b) and (4a–b), it is proposed here, in line with Quirk et al. and other work, that there are two types of to in present-day English. ). By contrast, the word to of (1b) is a preposition.

6542 As mentioned above, Tables 8 and 9 show the most affixal items out of the samples gathered. The catalogue presented in the former has a total of 429 entries, extracted from a collection of 96,877 tokens, corresponding to only 13,882 types. The affixes in Table 9 represent the first 10 out of 551 items, extracted from a sample of 125,969 word tokens (17,509 word types). Again, the samples are very small and the results appear similar in some way. Table 9. Peninsular Spanish suffixal groups from the 20th century; top 10 of 551 entries of catalog for this century.
