Corpus linguistics, with its new methodological approaches to language study, has developed extensively over the last few decades affecting a wide range of disciplinary fields. This volume focuses on key notions and methods in corpus linguistics investigation, which are presented within an applied corpus linguistics framework.The theoretical and pedagogical underpinnings of Data-Driven Learning (DDL) are discussed; discourse-based and phraseological approaches are analyzed. The connection between DDL and students' learning styles is examined. The analysis of English corpus-informed teaching materials zeroes in on course book design. Furthermore, research on English genre-specific academic writing is presented; in particular, two corpus-based studies investigate the stance and engagement bundles in conference abstracts and the structural complexity and disciplinary variation of the conference abstracts across disciplines. Corpus-designed activities, which instructors can implement in their classes (such as corpus linguistics and EAP/ESP courses), are also provided; the hands-on tasks require students to access corpora directly acting as active learners and autonomous researchers.
