The development of corpus linguistics has led to the creation of new methods for collecting and analyzing linguistic data, which were made possible thanks to the development of computers and the Internet. This new direction in linguistics has encouraged spectacular advances dealing with the multiple facets of human language in all its complexity from a scientific perspective. This book intends to introduce such a wealth to readers who are not particularly used to reading linguistics-oriented literature. In our times, the ability to quantitatively analyze corpus data has become an integral part of the linguist’s toolbox. Nevertheless, the use of such data is based on precise theoretical and methodological principles, which require a thorough understanding. This turning point in linguistics implies the need to introduce the new generations of students to the use of these methods which will help them understand the issues underlying their use in scientific literature, to critically assess the results obtained, and to use them in the context of their academic work. This book is an introductory work. The materials introduced here does not presuppose prior skills other than basic linguistic knowledge, as well as a minimum command of the most common computer tools. This book is necessarily partial and does not deal with all the questions raised by the use of corpora in different linguistic disciplines. However, we hope that this book, which was intentionally designed as self-study materials, would be beneficial for students wishing to use corpora in their linguistic studies.
