ICE-GB is a 1 million-word corpus of up to date British English. it truly is totally parsed, and includes over 83,000 syntactic timber. including the committed retrieval software program, ICECUP, ICE-GB is an unparalleled source for the research of English syntax. "Exploring typical Language" is a complete advisor to either corpus and software program. It encompasses a complete reference for ICE-GB. The chapters on ICECUP supply entire directions at the use of the numerous beneficial properties of the software program, together with concordancing, lexical and grammatical searches, sociolinguistic queries, random sampling, and looking for syntactic constructions utilizing ICECUP's Fuzzy Tree Fragment versions. precise cognizance is given to the rules of experimental layout in a parsed corpus. Six case reviews offer step by step illustrations of ways the corpus and software program can be utilized to discover genuine linguistic concerns, from basic lexical stories to extra advanced syntactic issues, resembling noun word constitution, verb transitivity, and voice.
