Review of our advice book

February 2024

In 2022, we published a Cambridge Element on the dynamics of advice-giving and advice uptake in English conversation, using the London–Lund Corpus 2 (see here). The intended readership of this open access book is students and researchers in corpus pragmatics interested in new ways of investigating speech acts by means of spoken corpora. Now, Lin Shao of the University of Barcelona has written an excellent review of the book in Contrastive Pragmatics, commending its "multidimensional theoretical framework" and "a mixed methods of corpus pragmatics analysis approach". Thank you! Find the review here.

Nele and Carita were interviewed by Robbie Love for the CorpusCast podcast. CorpusCast is a podcast about corpus linguistics and what it can do for society. Every month, Robbie speaks with researchers in the field to find out more about how corpus linguistics – the study of linguistic patterns in large samples of language – is applied in a diverse range of contexts including education, health and technology. Of course, we talked all about the London–Lund Corpus 2 and its upcoming release! Find the podcast episode here.
