Reviews

The contributors to this volume, leading figures in multi-dimensional analysis, bring in these chapters experience and expertise to enhance existing corpus linguistics resources. The reader will accordingly find both a richness of analysis as well as clarity in explanation of MDA procedures. Essential reading for all researchers using corpus methods who wish to understand how register patterns vary, how the variation may be pinned down, and how such variation relates to underlying situational, social, and cognitive functions. * Mike Scott, Visiting Research Fellow in Corpus Linguistics, Aston University, UK * This book is a must-read for anyone who wishes to carry out multi-dimensional analyses of corpora. It consists of a collection of chapters written by experts in the field which take the reader through the origins of the approach and along its different methodological stages, drawing on a range of examples as well as offering a detailed account of existing MD research. It encourages, enlightens and enables future MD analysts. * Paul Baker, Professor of English Language, Lancaster University, UK *
