Abstract/Summary

This chapter highlights the benefits of using multiple data sets and data triangulation in corpus-assisted discourse study (CADS) research. It discusses the nitty-gritty of methodological decision-making involved in selecting appropriate data sources and analytical tools for meaningful comparisons of discourse across corpora, and outlines a hands-on framework for doing CADS with multiple data sets. This chapter is a must read for students and researchers who are interested in using corpus tools and methods to examine how discourse behaves across contexts and explore aspects of recontextualisation and intertextuality.
