The Yearbook of Corpus Linguistics and Pragmatics addresses the interface between these disciplines and offers a platform to scholars who combine both research methodologies to present rigorous and interdisciplinary findings about language in real use.

Corpus linguistics and Pragmatics in the past represented two paths of scientific thought, parallel but often mutually exclusive and excluding. Corpus Linguistics, informed by mathematics and statistics, offers a meticuous methodology. Pragmatics is defined by its indefiniteness in interpreting sentence meaning and intended meaning. Recent research shows that both approaches can be very useful if used complementary. Corpus linguistics studies may use pragmatics as a model for the interpretation of data and studies in pragmatics can turn to corpus linguistics for data analysis. This yearbook will give the readers insight in how they can use pragmatics to explain real corpus data and from there develop and refine its theory.

This yearbook is aimed at researchers from the areas of corpus linguistics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, language education, psycholinguistics, and theoretical linguistics.
