This handbook presents the first systematic account of corpus phonology - the employment of corpora for studying speakers' and listeners' acquisition and knowledge of the sound system of their native languages and the principles underlying those systems. The first part of the book discusses the design, compilation, and use of phonological corpora, while the second looks at specific applications. Part 3 presents the tools and methods used, while the final part examines a number of currently available phonological corpora in various languages. It will appeal not only to those working with phonological corpora, but also to researchers and students of phonology and phonetics more generally, as well as to all those interested in language variation, dialectology, language acquisition, and sociolinguistics.

Jacques Durand is Emeritus Professor of Linguistics at the University of Toulouse II-Jean Jaures and a Member of the Institut Universitaire de France. His publications are mainly in phonology but he also worked in Machine Translation. He is the coordinator of two major research programmes in corpus phonology: Phonology of Contemporary French, with M.-H. Cote, B. Laks and C. Lyche, and Phonology of Contemporary English, with P. Carr and A. Przewozny. ; Ulrike Gut holds the Chair of English Linguistics at the Westfalische Wilhelms-University in Munster. Her main research interests include phonetics and phonology, corpus linguistics, second language acquisition, and world-wide varieties of English. She has collected the LeaP corpus and the ICE-Nigeria and is currently involved in the compilation of the ICE-Scotland. ; Gjert Kristoffersen is Professor of Scandinavian languages at the University of Bergen. His research interests are synchronic and diachronic aspects of Scandinavian phonology, especially Norwegian and Swedish prosody from a variationist perspective. He is the author of The Phonology of Norwegian (OUP 2000).
