Dewaele, Jean-Marc (2008) Variation in advanced oral interlanguage: the effect of proficiency on style choice. In: Romero-Trillo, J. (ed.) Pragmatics and Corpus Linguistics: A Mutualistic Entente. Mouton Series in Pragmatics 2. Berlin, Germany: De Gruyter, pp. 65-92. ISBN 9783110195804.
Book synopsis: The recent history of linguistics has witnessed the development of some disciplines that were conceived apart but benefited from common intuitions. One example of this phenomenon is the relationship established throughout time between pragmatics and corpus linguistics. Although their arrival heralded the application of two paradigms based on distant theoretical principles, they always showed an interest in their mutual advances and their practical reconciliation gave birth to an intellectual synergy that proved very fruitful. The present volume is an homage to the symbiosis of pragmatics and corpus linguistics and gathers the works of some of the scholars that have striven to create the liaison between them for a better understanding of language.
