回复:[推荐]Wolfgang: My version of corpus linguistics

I find this statement puzzling:


2. In corpus linguistics, language study is always the study of written (or
transcribed or quoted or otherwise recorded) texts or text pieces, i.e. language
which can be reproduced, heard, read and interpreted repeatedly.
What is not written or transcribed or quoted or recorded is lost, both for
the discourse community and for linguistic investigation. The question of
what is spoken and therefore transient, and what is written and therefore
permanent, is rather a matter of perspective than of linguistic ‘reality’.
This use of the term 'written language' is a bit misleading. Just because
oral language is transcribed it doesn't mean that it is 'written' language as
is generally understood. Thus to say that these days corpus linguistics
is always about written texts is a not the best way to characterize what
is going on in the field.

Transcripts are in written form, but the language use contained therein is still typical of "spoken" features.

我在 my version of corpus linguistics中看到这样一段话:
Corpus linguistics is not in itself a method: many different methods are
used in processing and analysing corpus data. It is rather an insistence on
working only with real language data taken from the discourse in a principled
way and compiled into a corpus.

以前曾听到一个说法,说corpus linguistics 本身可以是语言学的一个分支,也有人说corpus linguistics 是一个approach.
不知各位如何看待这个问题???

A good question. This question is actually open to debates. So called "corpus-driven linguists" (Tognini-Bonelli) claim corpus linguistics is an independent branch of linguistics. For many including me, it is just a methodology - an approach.

See the following link for my view of this issue

You are welcome to contribute your opinions.

It may be originally just an approach towards lingustics, however, as it is growing more and more strong and more and more people are going after it ,it is becoming a branch of linguistics.
