Kalman Sutker A Prosodic Account of English Negation This thesis explores a prosodic account of the negators ''not'' and ''n''t'' which relies on prosodic insertion and movement. Corpus data (from COCA) is used to argue that ''not'' and ''n''t'' are adverbs that a have a special dependency on auxiliaries in tensed clauses and not functional heads as argued by the NegP hypothesis. Pitch contour data is shown which supports this conclusion. This approach simplifies the syntax without relying on an overly specified lexicon. Ben Gurion University of the Negev

François Maniez The translation into French of adjectives formed with a noun and a past participle in English-language medical articles We study the translation into French of English compound adjectives consisting of a past participle preceded by a noun phrase. We attempt to find out to what extent consultation of online corpora can help translators deal with compound adjectives that are part of non-lexicalized expressions. Our results show that consulting online terminology databases can be usefully complemented by the use of online parallel corpora such as COCA and the compilation of ad hoc comparable corpora.

Como base teórica empleamos la gramaticalización y la lexicalización; y como pruebas de nuestras intuiciones utilizamos ejemplos del Corpus del Español. La principal conclusión apunta a que es necesario cuantificar el grado de acercamiento al polo gramatical o al léxico de los ejemplos concretos compuestos por estructuras biverbales.

Melanie Bell and Ingo Plag Informativeness is a determinant of compound stress in English. There have been claims in the literature that the variability of compound stress assignment in English can be explained with reference to the informativeness of the constituents. This paper investigates a large number of compounds taken from the British National Corpus. It is the first study to show that measures of informativeness (the morphological family sizes of the constituents and the constituents’ degree of semantic specificity) are indeed highly predictive of prominence placement.

Wojciech Guz The distribution of the suffix -ness across registers Biber et al. (1998: 63) assert that, although nominalizations are by far most common in academic texts overall, “[t]he -ness ending is more important in fiction than in either academic prose or speech.” Claims to the same effect are made by Biber et al. (1999). In this paper, we offer a refined analysis of -ness with insightful results. The distribution of the suffix is shown to depend heavily on the distribution of the stem adjective to which it attaches. Skrzypczak, W., T. Fojt, S. Wacewicz (2012) (eds.)

Moreover adstract targets are shown to inherit rudimentary properties of objects or physical substances. The data derived from corpora serve to provide authentic examples of language use.

Mathilde Pinson The paradoxical success of can (-ed) not help but: When the extragrammatical meets the non-compositional COCA was used to determine the actual acceptability of theoretically acceptable contexts licensing the lexical phrase "can (-ed) help" (negation, restricition, interrogation, if-clauses, than-clauses etc.). COHA was used to see whether the proportion of non-prototypical licensing contexts has evolved through time. These two corpora were also used to compare the prevalence of the gerund vs but + bare verb after this multi-word expression. Yearbook of Phraseology volume 2, Koenraad Kuiper, 17-44

Donald E. Hardy, Crystal Broch Colombini A genre, collocational, and constructional analysis of RISK We extend existing scholarship by analyzing the noun RISK over the last two decades of contemporary American discourse with recourse to the Corpus of Contemporary American English. Using frequency analysis, concordance contextual analysis, collocational analysis, and a variation on distinctive-collexeme analysis, we revisit the assertion that RISK is semantically negative, and then investigate the semantic potential for good risk, a phenomenon associated with economic and adventuring sectors.

Mark KOPROWSKI A review of 4000 Essential English Words This review critically examines Paul Nation’s self-study vocabulary textbook series designed for high-beginner to advanced students. The six-level series aims to present learners with the most useful 4,000 American English words. However, despite a colorful and attractive layout, engaging vocabulary exercises, and a number of original stories that naturally contextualize the target vocabulary, a corpus-based analysis (using the Corpus of Contemporary American English) reveals that the specified vocabulary words objectively fail to consistently meet the standard of essentiality.

Caroline SANTOS A tradução da fala do personagem Hagrid para o português brasileiro e português europeu no livro Harry Potter e a Pedra Filosofal: um estudo baseado em corpus This study investigates the intersection between Translation Studies and Children''s Literature, more specifically it investigates the translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher''s Stone and its translations into Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese, both entitled Harry Potter e a Pedra Filosofal. The focus of interest lies in how the translators dealt with Hagrid''s dialect in order to compare what they have done with what Krings(1996) calls reduction strategy and Klingberg (1986) considers a standardization. The initial hypothesis was that both translators would reduce the dialectal marks using, in their translations, transpositions of the spoken variety to the written mode through dialectal marks. A bilingual parallel corpus was used to verify this hypothesis, which constitutes a subcorpus of PEPCo - Portuguese-English Parallel Corpus (FERNANDES; BARTHOLAMEI, 2009). After data analysis it was noticed that the Portuguese translator''s linguistic preferred or recurring patterns gives more emphasis on oral marks than the Brazilian translator''s style, but neither of them makes an option for translating the source-text dialect for an target-text dialect.

jiezhi yang Corpus Collocation Retrieval and Approaches to English Synonym Discrimination There is a consensus among linguistic experts on the notion that we shall know a word by the company it keeps.Not only can collocations allow us to get familiar with words, but they can also help us discriminate synonyms. People came to know the importance of collocations in the acquisition of words long ago, it was due to the lack of proper tools like modern corpora and concordancers that people had been unable to systematically analyse and study the collocations of words. Collocation retrieval is to extract combinations of either habitually or grammatically related words from a corpus. With the achievement of collocation retrieval, quantitative measurements of collocational strength and presentation of salient collocations, Sketch Engine and some other concordancing programs provide us with unprecedented perspectives to examine the typical collocations of words. Their achievement represents a trend in the development of a new generation corpora. Corpora with collocation retrieval are becoming practical tools in foreign language teaching and study. The problems encountered in traditional approaches of discriminating synonyms will be readily solved. CAFLE COMPUTER-ASSISTED FOREIGN LANGUAGE EDUCATION

Malgorzata Fabiszak and Przemysław Kaszubski Studying metaphor with the BNC This paper is an exercise in corpus-driven metaphor research. In the main part, we demonstrate the use of collocation evidence for the construction of Fillmorian semantic frames for four ex-pressions in the ‘War’ domain – FIGHT WAR, DECLARE WAR, BATTLEFIELD and BATTLEGROUND. We combine manual categorisation of collocates identified in concordance lines extracted from the British National Corpus (BNC) with automatically derived collocation statistics (z-score). We then show how corpus citations demonstrate the scalar nature of meta-phor. Finally, we use the L-Word Query function in the BNC Sara concordancer to identify and categorise metaphorical compounds containing the word war. General comments regarding the usefulness of corpus-based empirical methods for metaphor research are offered throughout the paper and in the conclusions.

José L. Oncins-Martínez Towards a Corpus-Based Analysis of Anglicisms in Spanish: A Case Study This paper aims to show some of the advantages of and the need for using corpora for exploring and assessing Anglicisms in contemporary Spanish. In order to do this a case study is presented: the adverb dramáticamente, as it is taking on the new sense ‘espectacularmente’ under the influence of English dramatically. The presence of this adverb with this new sense in contemporary Spanish is explored and supported with the data found in CORDE and CREA, the two corpora of the Royal Spanish Academy. Since the paper also seeks to show in what ways the Spanish lexicon is being influenced by English, evidence from two major English corpora, the BNC and the COCA, will be used.

Susanne Wagner Concessives and Contrastives in Student Writing: L1, L2 and Genre Differences This study investigates the use of concessive markers in academic writing. Frequency differences between academic sub-genres can be established on the basis of large reference corpora such as the British National Corpus (BNC) and the Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA). These are put in perspective through comparisons with specialised corpora of academic writing (Corpus of British Academic Written English, BAWE and the Michigan Corpus of Upper Student Papers, MICUSP). A learner component is introduced by analysing four markers, although, however, nevertheless and while, in student writing. The student data stem from two sources: German natives enrolled in English Studies programmes at Chemnitz University of Technology and Czech natives studying at Brno Masaryk University. Statistical analyses reveal striking significant differences both between native and non-native writing as well as between German and Czech production.

There are however huge differences in the frequency of occurrence, ranging from 1 occurrence for unadoptable to 983 occurrences for unreasonable. The Smith (2005) corpus provides a few occurrences where none were found in BYU-BNC (unspeakables, unconceivables) as does Google (unwhisperables, unthinkables, unutterables).

Erik Wennstrom untitled crossword puzzle A crossword puzzle certainly doesn''t count as a research publication, but it is a publication, and I did use COCA extensively to create the puzzle. Good crossword puzzle entries are often words and phrases that occur frequently in natural language but that don''t necessarily show up in word lists (or even dictionaries). I frequently consulted COCA to find such words and phrases. In this particular crossword, there were several entries that I probably would never have found without the corpus, including "no-go", "in beta", "angel hair", and "dust-up". The corpus is clearly not designed for this sort of work (typically, I use it to help find natural language examples for teaching logic), but it''s a testament to its versatility that it was so useful here as well.

Pranav Anand and Adrian Brasoveanu Modal Concord as Modal Modification Modal concord is the phenomenon by which certain modal adverbs seem to become semantically vacuous in the presence of modal auxiliaries if the adverb and the auxiliary match in quantificational force (e.g., universal vs existential) and modal flavor (e.g., epistemic vs deontic). We propose that neither concord adverbs nor modal auxiliaries are vacuous: concord adverbs are modal-auxiliary modifiers and the compositional process ensures that both auxiliary and modifying adverb comment on the same proposition (contributed by the same radical), with respect to the same modal base. The data mostly consists of sentences from the Corpus of Contemporary American English. Sinn und Bedeutung 14

Myoung Hyoun Song Corpus-based Analysis of the English Tough-Construction This corpus-based study reveals facts about the proportion and structure of the English Tough Construction. Firstly, the overall ratio of TC pattern to Extraposition pattern is 3.5:6.5 when the tough adjectives simply occur with a subordinate to-infinitive clause. And then the ratio of TC pattern to Extraposition pattern is 9.1 to 90.9 when they occur with for-NP sequence. Secondly, the Tough Construction is analyzed into ''tough-related adjective + an optional for-NP complement + to infinitival complement''. As for the status of the infinitival subclause, it is argued to be a complement to the adjective by means of criteria for complementhood. And the status of the for-NP sequence also turns out to be a complement to the tough adjective on the basis of syntactic and semantic facts. Lastly, there arises an ambiguity in meaning of TC when the tough adjective is modified by an adverb ''too'', which can be clarified by considering the context in which the sentence occurs.

Pavel Dronov Idioms in communication and meta-communication (in Russian, with an abstract in English) This article deals with the problem of idioms in meta-communication. Apart from the widely-spread hedges, meta-communicational idiom modifications are frequently used in speech. A modification of this kind is produced by means of inserting an adjectival modifier into an idiom. The adjective in this case indicates the idiomatic nature of the whole phrase. The author states that while these modifications are common in English or German, they rarely occur in Russian. The author uses the data obtained by means of English, German corpora (COCA+BNC, DEREKO+Wortschatz, Ruscorpora, respectively) to observe these modifications.

Mateusz-Milan Stanojevic, Jelena Parizoska, Lea Banovic Schematic idioms and cultural models This paper combines the constructional approach to idioms (Fillmore et al. 1988) with an investigation of idiom motivation based on ICMs/cultural models (Lakoff 1987). We will compare the syntactic and semantic make-up of English constructions with the combination of components “ in ... eyes” and Croatian constructions with the combination of components “ u ... očima” . The aim is to show that these combinations are in fact schematic idioms with a relatively stable structure, depending on the ICM/cultural model motivating them. In order to show this, we analyzed a sample of these constructions from the BNC and the Croatian National Corpus. The analysis has confirmed that there are a limited number of cultural models motivating most expressions in both languages and that each model is associated with a particular schematic structure.

Ji-Yeon Chang Postsecondary EFL students'' evaluations of corpora with regard to English writing Recently, as a corpus, which has been mainly used for linguistic analysis, is emerging as an innovative tool in language learning, a growing body of research has paid attention to the efficacy of corpus use from educational perspectives. Given that corpus use for pedagogical purposes entails autonomous and independent learning of language learners, it is important to uncover how corpus users evaluate it based on their own experience. While most of the previous studies were conducted in the ESL settings, the present study sets out to examine postsecondary Korean students’ opinions of general and specialized corpora with regard to their own English study and writing in the EFL setting. The questionnaires which twenty-eight students of two corpus workshops submitted were analyzed in terms of their evaluations of corpora as well as their prior writing experience, reference use, and attitudes towards English study and writing. The results show that the respondents, being dissatisfied with their English skills, were eager to increase their overall English skills and English writing skills. During English writing, they usually used two to three language references including bilingual dictionaries followed by monolingual dictionaries and Internet search engines. The results also prove that the respondents regarded corpora as helpful language references and that they would use them and recommend them to other students. The respondents, however, expressed disparate attitudes towards specialized corpora. In general, corpora were considered more appropriate to the intermediate and advanced levels of students in terms of language proficiency and academic experience. Using corpora for pedagogical purposes merits further research to validate its efficacy and investigate the possibility of its application in Korea. Chang, J.-Y. (2010).

Jennifer Hay & Ingo Plag What constrains possible suffix combinations? On the interaction of grammatical and processing restrictions in derivational morphology, There is a long-standing debate about the principles and mechanisms that constrain the combinatorial properties of affixes, in particular of English suffixes. One group of scholars argues for the existence of lexical strata with strong restrictions holding between the different strata. This view is disputed by scholars who claim that it is selectional restrictions of individual suffixes that are responsible for the combinatorial properties of suffixes. Most recently, Hay (2000, 2002) has proposed a psycholinguistic model of morphological complexity, according to which an affix which can be easily parsed out in processing should not occur inside an affix which can not. This model has been called “complexity based ordering”. The general claim is that affixes can be approximately ordered along a hierarchy of complexity, with more separable affixes at one end, and less separable affixes at the other end. More separable affixes can attach outside less separable affixes, but not vice-versa. The goal of this paper is to test the predictions of complexity based ordering through an investigation of 15 English suffixes and their potential 210 two suffix combinations. Using large data-bases such as the British National Corpus, the CELEX lexical data-base, the OED and the internet, we investigate whether the attested and non-attested combinations are best explained by complexity based ordering or by the individual selectional properties of these suffixes. We show that in most cases selectional restrictions and parsing restrictions coincide. Where selectional restrictions underdetermine possible combinations, complexity based ordering makes correct predictions. Only well parsable combinations are possible combinations, and this range of possible combinations is then further curtailed by selectional restrictions. In sum, we argue that both selectional restrictions and parsing constraints are instrumental in determining possible and impossible suffix combinations.

Ingo Plag & Harald Baayen Suffix ordering and morphological processing There is a long-standing debate about the principles constraining the combinatorial properties of suffixes. Hay 2002 and Hay & Plag 2004 proposed a model in which suffixes can be ordered along a hierarchy of processing complexity. We show on the basis of data from large corpora (including the BNC)that this model generalizes to a larger set of suffixes, and we provide independent evidence supporting the claim that a higher rank in the ordering correlates with increased productivity. Behavioral data from lexical decision and word naming show, however, that this model has been one-sided in its exclusive focus on the importance of constituent-driven processing, and that it requires supplementation by a second and equally important focus on the role of memory. Finally, using concepts from graph theory, we show that the space of existing suffix combinations can be conceptualized as a directed graph, which, with surprisingly few exceptions, is acyclic. This acyclicity is hypothesized to be functional for lexical processing. Language 85.1, 109-152

Ingo Plag The variability of compound stress in English: structural, semantic and analogical factors This article presents an experimental study in which three competing hypotheses concerning NN compound stress assignment are tested. The stress patterns of novel and existing compounds, as obtained in a reading experimentwith native speakers of American English,were acoustically measured and analyzed. The results show that there is indeed a considerable amount of variation in stress assignment, and that all three hypothesized factors, i.e. structure, semantics, and analogy, are relevant, though to different degrees. On a theoretical level, the findings strongly suggest that a categorical approach cannot be upheld and that probability and analogy need to be incorporated into an adequate account of stress assignment in noun– noun constructions. Frequency data from the BNC are used to test the hypothesis that more frequent compounds tend to be more prone to left stress. English Language and Linguistics 10.1, 143-172

stephen mouritsen The Dictionary Is Not a Fortress: Definitional Fallacies and a Corpus-Based Approach to Plain Meaning Judges often rely on their intuition in order to determine the "Plain Meaning" of a term in a statute, a contract, or a constitution. But in difficult cases, meaning is rarely "plain," and the legal system would therefore benefit from a method for examining lexical ambiguity that is more reliable that intuition. In this paper, I test the United States Supreme Court''s conclusion in United States v. Muscarello, that the "ordinary meaning" of "carries a firearm" in 18 U.S.C. § 924(c)(1) has reference to carrying a firearm in a vehicle and not just on one''s person. I relied on the COCA to examine contemporary usage of the verb "to carry" when it collocates "firearm" and its synonyms. I used the COHA to determine the use of the phrase "carries a firearm" at the time of the law''s enactment, i.e., 1968. 2010 BYU Law Review 1915.

Graham Ranger You see! Abstract in English: The segment you see is employed as a parenthetical comment clause in initial, median and final position, where it may be said both to indicate the argumentative status of the clause it targets, as an explanation or justification for a previous representation, and to function as a politeness marker, in associating the cospeaker with propositions endorsed by the speaker, thereby defusing potential discord before it manifests itself. It is, in this second function, a marker of negative politeness (Brown and Levinson 1978). Quirk et al (1985) also mention an alternative use of stressed you see to express triumph. In this paper I will propose an enunciative characterisation of you see which will, it is hoped, enable us to derive different, sometimes contradictory, interpretations of you see from the metalinguistic operations of which you see is the trace, and from observable differences in contextual configurations, including the identification of the related propositions or the position you see occupies relative to these propositions. From our study it emerges that you see is not in itself a marker of politeness, but that the operations which you see marks lend themselves to strategies including impoliteness (a Face Threatening Act – FTA) as well as negative and positive politeness, in the terms of Brown and Levinson. In some contexts it also appears to allow an uncertain speaker to elicit manifestations of positive politeness (backchannels) from the co-speaker. We are led to consider how the theory of enunciative operations might contribute to research in the fields of politeness and discourse structure. The BYU corpora were used for frequency tables by text and genre-type and in order to locate specific examples for commentary within the article.

Margaret Otake English Loanwords from Japanese: A Survey of the Perceptions of American English Speakers As Japanese cultural patterns and icons have become more familiar to English-speaking North Americans, several new vocabulary items have entered the English language from Japanese sources. A selection of some of the more common and newer terms from Japanese was made based on print sources and conversational use by American English speakers. The words chosen were: geisha, tsunami, kamikaze, honcho, hibachi, karaoke, anime, manga, otaku, edamame, and sudoku. A survey of speakers of American English of a wide range of ages and backgrounds was conducted to determine the sense of the meanings of these words from the informants’ point of view, the ways in which the words are used in grammatical structures, and the degree of awareness of the language origin of the words. A comparison of the response rates by the participants is made to the historical timeline of the words in dictionaries and their frequency of use in a major American English corpus, the COCA. A report on the emerging consensus of meaning, grammatical usage, and collocation by communities of speakers is presented. Each item is also analyzed for changes that have occurred in meaning as compared to the original and present meaning in Japanese. Tokyo Seitoku University Bulletin, No.17, pp.17-32

Ariel Novodvorski A representação de atores sociais nos discursos sobre o ensino de espanhol no Brasil em corpus jornalístico O corpus encontra-se disponível em É composto por cem milhões de palavras e abarca o período compreendido entre os séculos XIII e XX, distribuídos da seguinte maneira: vinte milhões dos séculos XIII a XV; quarenta milhões dos séculos XVI a XVIII, vinte milhões do século XIX e vinte milhões do século XX. Para os vinte milhões de palavras do século XX há um corpo balanceado de 25% de espanhol falado, 25% de ficção, 25% de textos jornalísticos e 25% de textos acadêmicos, outros e não ficção. Para os períodos anteriores não existe a mesma variedade de registros, mas o autor do corpus assinala que procurou um equilíbrio entre ficção e não ficção. O “corpus del español” foi criado há seis anos e, em outubro de 2007, foi disponibilizada para o público sua última versão. Estas informações foram tomadas da entrevista com o Dr. Mark Davies, autor do corpus, publicada em La página del Idioma Español e disponível em Acesso em 10/03/2008. O termo “aburrido”, segundo o dicionário Señas, da Universidad Alcalá de Henares (Espanha), empregado com o verbo ser, significa tedioso em português, já com o verbo estar, significa entediado. O DRAE dá a seguinte definição para aburrimiento: “Cansancio, fastidio (chateação), tedio, originados generalmente por disgustos o molestias (incômodos), o por no contar con algo que distraiga y divierta” (nossa tradução, nossa ênfase). Também foi constatado, no Corpus del Español (de 100 millones de palavras), que o emprego de aburrido tem conotação negativa. Esse corpus está disponível em: Acesso em 29 de março de 2008.

Guenther Lampert and Martina Lampert Where does evidentiality reside? Notes on (alleged) limiting cases: quotatives and seem-verbs. This co-authored article (with Günther Lampert) reviews standard definitions of evidentiality which yield unwanted effects for alleged English evidentials: Some (like seem) do not specify an information source at all, but (if at all) only schematically refer to it, others (like reporting verbs/quotatives) are, in light of the envisaged cognitive-functional definition proposed for the database of evidential markers in European languages, best examples, yet are supposed to be (partially) excluded because of their non-emergent (or paradigmatic) meanings. The present meta-study on conceptualizing evidentiality, a far from trivial issue that must be settled before any database can be compiled, scrutinizes relevant parameters and applies them to two test cases seem, and ‘mediated’ evidentials it is said, is said to, as they say, be like, suggesting to conceptualize evidentiality as a multi-dimensional contextu al category.

Josep Alba-Salas On the life and death of a collocation: A corpus-based diachronic study of dar miedo/hacer miedo-type structures in Spanish This paper seeks to shed light on the diachronic evolution of collocations by examining structures formed in Modern Spanish with dar ''give'' plus state nouns (e.g. dar miedo ''frighten'', literally, ''give fear''). Using the Corpus del Espanol, I offer a quantitative and qualitative analysis of eighteen representative dar miedo-type collocations from the 1200s to the 1900s. The results show that although the basic properties of dar miedo-type structures have remained remarkably stable over the centuries, during the Middle Ages the verb hacer ''make'' was used here almost as often as dar - a competition apparently inherited from Latin. While different nouns show different patterns of loss of hacer, echoing the lexical diffusion of certain grammatical changes, the 1500s saw a very sharp decline in ''make'' cases across the board, leading to its complete disappearance from this context by the 1800s. The loss of hacer led to a radical simplification of the collocational properties of state nouns in Spanish vis-a-vis Latin and other Modern Romance varieties. This process resulted both from language-internal factors mostly related to the lexical semantics of dar and hacer and from three key sociolinguistic processes in 16th-century Spanish: koineization, change of norm and increased standardization.

Josep Alba-Salas Las estructuras tipo meter miedo en diacronía: Más detalles sobre la evolución histórica de las colocaciones causativas Este estudio examina ciertas colocaciones formadas (en el español coloquial moderno) con el verbo meter más sustantivos predicativos que denotan estados sicológicos, p. ej. meter miedo, meter celos o meter envidia (a alguien).Partiendo de los datos del Corpus del español, el análisis traza la evolución histórica de las colocaciones tipo meter miedo desde el siglo XIII al año 2000. Entre otros resultados, el análisis revela que en estados anteriores de la lengua meter competía con poner en estas colocaciones, que esta competición aparentemente conllevó un proceso de difusión léxica, y que el español moderno ha resuelto dicha rivalidad histórica mediante la especialización de meter y poner para contextos colocacionales diferentes. Estos resultados confirman ciertas tendencias de cambio histórico documentadas por Alba-Salas (2007) en otros contextos colocacionales.

François Maniez L’adjectif dénominal en langue de spécialité : étude du domaine de la médecine. Relational adjectives are a key component of specialized language in French as well as many other languages. The use of relational adjectives as a substitute for a prepositional phrase follows the principle of economy in language, but it is also a characteristic of specialized discourse: French physicians will use expressions like « cancer mammaire » or « infarctus myocardique » where the layman uses « cancer du sein » or « infarctus du myocarde ». In English as well, the choice between a modifying noun or adjective is sometimes difficult to make for non-natives who either have to write directly in English or translate from a Romance language such as French, where relational adjectives are frequently used. After studying morphological, syntactic and semantic aspects of relational adjectives, we attempt to identify some of the factors that seem to induce the use of nouns or relational adjectives as modifiers, based on examples drawn from two subsets of the Corpus of Contemporary American English, where particular attention is devoted to variation in the use of the pair heart/cardiac as noun modifiers.

Martin Hilpert and Stefan Th. Gries Assessing frequency changes in multistage diachronic corpora: Applications for historical corpus linguistics and the study of language acquisition The use of corpora that are divided into temporally ordered stages is becoming increasingly wide-spread in historical corpus linguistics. This development is partly due to the fact that more and more resources of this kind are being developed. Since the assessment of frequency changes over multiple periods of time is a relatively recent practice, there are few agreed-upon standards of how such trends should be statistically interpreted. This article addresses the need for a basic analytical toolbox that is specifically tailored to the interpretation of frequency changes in multistage diachronic corpora. Using data from the TIME corpus, we present a number of suggestions for the analysis of data that analysts commonly face in historical studies, but also in the study of language acquisition.

It is used here on the basis of the Corpus of Historical American English (COHA, Davies 2010) in order to show its applicability to recent change. Whereas much work in collostructional analysis has addressed verb-headed constructions, such as modal auxiliaries, causatives, the ditransitive construction, or the passive, relatively little attention has been paid to the nominal domain, which is the focus of this chapter.

Mark Davies Examining Recent Changes in English: Some Methodological Issues 1) Compares COHA to smaller historical corpora like BROWN family, ARCHER, etc to look at three cases of shifts with verbal complementation in the 1800s-1900s. 2) Compared COCA to the Bank of English and other supposed "monitor corpora", to argue that because it has the same genre (and sub-genre) composition from year to year, only COCA provides reliable data for recent (syntactic) changes in English.

Michael Ramscar and Melody Dye Running down the clock: the role of expectation in our understanding of time and motion. We used COCA frequency data to build a model of lexical prediction. See Exp 2-4. In addition, to get a measure of how well our corpus-based model of expectations captured real usage patterns, we correlated the likelihoods (given our COCA model) with the observed frequency in Google. The fit between the predictive model and the observed data (r=.95, p<.000001) was encouraging. Ramscar, M., Matlock, T., & Dye, M.

Melody Dye Learning language from the input : Why innate constraints can’t explain noun compounding. This paper tests the tenets of ''level ordering'' theory against the idea that children learn linguistic conventions from the input. Frequency data from COCA was used extensively in Exp 7 and subsequent analysis (pp 28-35, Tables 4-8). In brief, we were looking at whether the perceived ''naturalness'' of noun compounds could better be explained by grammatical type or plural sibilance. Ramscar, M. & Dye, M.

Neal Goldfarb Brief of the Project On Government Oversight et al as Amici Curiae in FCC v. AT&T This is a friend-of-the-court brief in the U.S. Supreme Court. The involves the Freedom of Information Act. Law-enforcement records are exempt from disclosure under FOIA to the extent that disclosure would result in an invasion of “personal privacy.” The issue is whether corporations are entitled to the benefit of this exemption, based on the fact that the statute defines “person” to include corporations. The court of appeals ruled that this stipulative definition changes the meaning of “personal” as used in FOIA, so that “personal privacy” can be understood to mean “corporate privacy”. The brief uses collocation data (primarily regarding the word “personal”) to argue against that conclusion. United States Supreme Court

Andréa Lacotiz Diachronic study of the functions and the semantic values of suffixes -ança/-ença, -ância/-ência in the Portuguese The purpose of this research was specify etymological data found in the Dicionário Houaiss, to, hereby, investigate the changeable semantic values in their suffixal diachronic trajectory, evaluate their transcategorical formative tendency, since the Classic Latin, and verify the relation that the derivative nouns establish with their verbs and cognate adjectives. Based on a corpus of 250 usual words formed by these suffixes, we investigate the etymology of the terms, consulting dictionaries of Classic and Medieval Latin, English, French, Spanish and Italian, confronting the found data with those supplied by the Dicionário Houaiss. We describe the semantical values of the suffixes in the form of paraphrases, discriminating the prototypical one from those ocurred by loans or by meaning extensions. We inquire the cognation of these derivative nouns among adjectives in -nte and verbs, in the current Portuguese. This way, we could conclude that these suffixes resemble themselves with changeable semantical values, prototypical and acquired in their diachronical trajectory; they are useful to the creation of nouns mainly the abstract ones, because there are occurrences of concrete nouns, and have the tendency to form derivatives from adjectival and verbal bases, although, alongside the history, since the Latin, formations with other categories have also existed.

Suhad Sonbul Direct teaching of vocabulary after reading: Is it worth the effort? This experimental study evaluated the effectiveness of direct teaching of new vocabulary items in reading passages. The study compared vocabulary learning under a reading only condition (incidental learning) to learning that is aided by direct communication of word meanings (explicit learning). Three levels of vocabulary knowledge (form recall, meaning recall, and meaning recognition) were assessed using three tests (completion, L1 translation, and multiple choice, respectively). Incidental learning plus explicit instruction was found to be more effective than incidental learning alone for all three levels. The results also showed that direct instruction is especially effective in facilitating the deepest level of knowledge, i.e. form recall. These findings demonstrate the value of the time and effort spent on direct teaching of lexical items in EFL reading classes. We used the BNC to control for the frequency of words used in this study.

Florian Haas Symmetric verbs and constraints on passivization: An English-German comparison Different uses of the English verb ''meet'' have been investigated with respect to their occurrence in the active and passive diatheses. In order to do this, the first 2,000 instances of the lemma ''meet'' in the BNC were extracted with the help of the interface at and classified according to their exact interpretation and their use in the active or passive voice. It turns out that there are striking differences between the relevant interpretations. A comparison to their German counterparts reveals that semantic and pragmatic motivations cannot sufficiently account for the distribution in English. I propose that verb senses and voice values are associated in such a way that semantic ambiguities are minimized. Zeitschrift für Anglistik und Amerikanistik (ZAA) 56.3: 255-268
