              This collection shows students of English and applied linguistics ways in which language and literary study can be integrated. By drawing on a wide range of texts by mainly British and American writers, from a variety of different periods, the contributors show how discourse styl...istics can provide models for the systematic description of, for example, dialogue in fiction; language of drama and balladic poetry; speech presentation; the interactive properties of metre; the communicative context of author/reader. Among the texts examined are novels, poetry and drama by major twentieth-century writers such as Joyce, Auden, Pinter and Hopkins, as well as examples from Shakespeare, Donne and Milton. Each chapter has a wide range of exercises for practical analysis, an extensive glossary and a comprehensive bibliography with suggestions for further reading. The book will be particularly useful to undergraduate students of English and applied linguistics and advanced students of modern languages or English as a foreign language.

              Spoken Corpus Linguistics: From Monomodal to Multimodal
               

              Spoken Corpus Linguistics: From Monomodal to Multimodal (Hardback)

              This volume looks at the development of multi-modal spoken corpus analysis. In particular, Adolphs discusses the approaches and results of a number of related research projects that rely upon spoken corpora that integrates textual, prosodic and gestural representations of spoken ...interactions. Adolphs sets the scene by presenting and discussing traditional approaches to spoken corpus analysis and resource development. She then focuses on the alignment between language and gesture in a spoken corpus, as well as the different ways in which prosody might be used to enhance linguistic descriptions as they emerge from spoken corpus research. To conclude, she identifies new developments in the area of spoken corpus research, including the relationship between language and context, emerging research methods (such as the interface between social ethnographies and spoken corpus linguistics), as well as possible shifts in scope and emphasis in spoken corpus research in the future. This book also reports on new technologies for capturing spoken language in different contexts, and for representing them alongside other types of data, such as location-based data and bio-sensing data.

              Spoken Corpus Linguistics: From Monomodal to Multimodal (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              In this book, Adolphs and Carter explore key approaches to work in spoken corpus linguistics. The book discusses some of the pioneering challenges faced in designing, building and utilising insights from the analysis of spoken corpora, arguing that, even though writing is heavily... privileged in corpus research, the spoken language can reveal patterns of language use that are both different and distinctive and that this has important implications for the way in which language is described, for the study of human communication and for the field of applied linguistics as a whole. Spoken Corpus Linguistics is divided into two main parts. The first part sets the scene by discussing traditional and new approaches to monomodal spoken corpus analysis, with a focus on discourse organisation and conversational interaction and with particular attention to forms of language such as discourse markers and multi-word units, areas of language not conventionally described but which are argued to be of importance to spoken language description and to spoken language learning and teaching research within the field of applied linguistics. The second part of the book moves into the multimodal domain and focuses on alignments between language and gesture in a spoken corpus, with particular reference to gestural movements of the head and the hand and to the different ways in which prosody might be used to enhance communication. A brief final chapter discusses new developments in the area of spoken corpus research, including the relationship between language and context, emerging research methods as well as discussing possible shifts in scope and emphasis in spoken corpus research in the future.
