Abstract (Undetermined)
Corpus-driven studies have been performed to try and explain language for
some time now, for example in 2006, a study was performed by Stefan
Gries called Corpus-based methods and cognitive semantics: The many
senses of to run*. After having read texts such as the study by Gries, it has
come to surface that, though interesting, corpus-based studies need to
account for several different factors, including sociolinguistic factors such
as dialect, register etc. This study will display the importance of said
sociolinguistic factors, as well as investigate how well these can be
predicted without looking at the extracted example sentences, meaning only
to use the grammatical patterns found in the example sentences. If a
prediction can... (More)

sociolinguistic factors do differ, and should be accounted for in studies like
Gries (2006). (Less)
