  • 第24页,Martin评价系统原始框架中engagement(介入)系统包含monogloss和heterogloss两类。monogloss下又包括entertain、proclaim和disclaim子系统;heterogloss下的子系统包括contract、expand。我的这个表格源自我本人所做的叙事话语评价研究案例,因此只保留了monogloss下面的子系统,忽略了hetergloss下面的子系,未能完整呈现Martin的原始理论框架。谢谢李涛老师指出该问题(参见:Martin, J. & P. White. 2005. The Language of Evaluation: Appraisal in English. Basingstoke, Hampshire: Palgrave Macmillan. 该书38页有评价资源框架图。)
  • 第45页McEnery & Baker(2017)应改为钱毓芳、McEnery(2017),即:钱毓芳、Tony McEnery,2017,A corpus-based discourse study of Chinese medicine in UK national newspapers,《外语教学与研究》(1):73-84。谢谢钱毓芳老师指出该问题。

  • 本书并未花篇幅介绍Alan Partington等人提出“语料库辅助的话语研究”(Corpus-assited Dicourse Studies, CADS),因为就各方面而言,我并没有看出CADS与基于语料库的话语研究(corpus-based discourse studies)有何不同。

A synopsis of Corpora and Discourse Studies

Xu, Jiajin. (2019). Corpora and Discourse Studies. Beijing: Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press.

Both corpus linguistics and discourse studies prioritise the study of meaning based on naturalistic language data as one of their primary research objectives. For one thing, the synergy of corpus linguistics and discourse studies equips the latter with ample language evidence and robust analytical tools. Furthermore, the co-selection of linguistic features and co-variance between linguistic features and contextual variables offer theoretical insights into discourse analysis.

This book presents a thorough overview of the well-established as well as flourishing field of discourse studies. The first two chapters discuss the fundamental concepts and method(ologie)s of corpus and discourse studies respectively. Chapters three to seven explore in detail with case studies the topics of discursive construction, linguistic evaluation, cohesion and coherence, register variation, and genre-informed dictionary compilation. The types of language data covered in the book include media discourse, interlanguage, translational texts, business discourse and academic discourse. Chapter eight concludes with predictions about the future directions of corpus-based discourse studies.

This volume is presumably the first monograph in Chinese dealing with corpus-based discourse studies in a systematic manner. Moreover, unlike similar titles published in English by international publishers which are overwhelmingly characterised by critical discourse analysis, this book strikes a balance between corpus-based discourse organisation and socially relevant issues.
