Abstract

This chapter provides a broad overview of corpus types and uses. It surveys five types of corpora: general, specialised, parallel, historical and multimodal. In each section, we provide a description of the corpus type, the key issues associated with the type as well as its applications in pedagogical contexts. The overview is not meant to be exhaustive, as there are many more corpora than we have space to mention. However, our aim is to introduce the main types and uses so that readers may then seek to explore the types more fully themselves, depending on their interests (see Appendix 28A for further information).
