A multilingual outlook of corpora studies
Professor Emeritus at the University of Oslo (Norway), Stig Johansson unfortunately passed away before this book was completed, and his interview is here published posthumously. In his contribution, the wealth of languages available in the world assumes special relevance, with mentions to languages such as Dutch, German, Norwegian and Swedish, besides English. Johansson points out that these languages (as well as any other) may be studied on their own, but this is not the only possibility available to researchers. As he explains, a lot can be gained from cross-linguistic studies (i.e. contrasting any pair of languages) – whether by means of comparable or parallel corpora.
