This book presents a colourful history of corpus-based language study, both of the past and the present, with a focus on the future course of activities related to corpus generation and use in the Indian context. A book of this kind was due for a long-time for scientists interested in language corpora for various aspects of linguistic research and application in a natural language. It provides a good exposure to this new area of language investigation and inspires scholars to explore more about it with extra inquisitiveness. It is written with a goal for addressing the needs of students and scholars coming from various fields of speech and language technology, computational linguistics, natural language processing, general and descriptive linguistics, phonology, grammar, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, semantics, lexicography, lexicology, historical linguistics, dialectology, language teaching, pragmatics, discourse, stylistics, among others.
