Long description:

Corpus Linguistics for World Englishes offers a detailed account of how to analyse the many fascinating varieties of English around the world using corpus-linguistic methods. Employing case studies for illustration of relevant concepts and methods throughout, this book:



  • introduces the theory and practice of analysing World Englishes

  • illustrates the basics of corpus-linguistic methods and presents the vast World Englishes corpora

  • links World Englishes to Learner Englishes and English as a Lingua Franca

  • offers practical, hands-on exercises and questions for discussion in each chapter

  • provides helpful overviews and course syllabi for students and instructors.

Corpus Linguistics for World Englishes is key reading for advanced students of English as a World Language and Corpus Linguistics, as well as anyone keen to understand variation in World Englishes with the help of corpus linguistics.



"A long-awaited textbook for students and scholars interested in state-of-the-art corpus-based approaches to variation in World Englishes, Learner Englishes and English as a Lingua Franca. The combination of engaging writing, useful exercises and nuanced discussion of models and analytical tools make this an invaluable contribution to the fields of corpus linguistics and World Englishes."


Elena Seoane, Universidade de Vigo, Spain


"This new book by Lange & Leuckert is an excellent introduction and a very welcome overview of corpus linguistic approaches to World Englishes, which ports students right into the middle of exciting research questions. What is particularly enticing are the many case studies and exercises, which allow students to test their hypotheses and replicate some of the results."


Gerold Schneider, University of Zurich, Switzerland
