Eight guest-edited articles focused on various aspects of corpus linguistics, including the Limerick Corpus of Irish English, multi-word clusters in spoken English, personal pronouns, grades and changes in student academic writing, discourse features in spoken Burmese, adult literacy learners’ experience of spoken and written ellipsis, semi-specialized corpora of written French in language learning, exchange in family discourse, and intonation of declarative-mood questions in Hong Kong English.
