COMMENTARY: H.G. Widdowson has repeatedly voiced unfounded criticisms of corpus research and of its potential application to language teaching. And attempts to publish refutations, including my own, have been blocked by editors and reviewers who support his position or at least are anxious not to admit major changes into the landscape of applied linguistics. So I am obliged to present the other side of the issues here on my website. - Robert de Beaugrande

Beaugrande is reputed for exchanging gunfires--pen fight--with H.G. Widdowson in the field of applied linguistics for long.
