Chapter: Multimodal corpus linguistics

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.19147


This article is part of our joint efforts to bring a new perspective – the multimodal perspective – to corpus linguistics. Specifically, in this article, we will be concerned with describing our efforts, with other colleagues, to develop concordancing techniques within a multimodal framework that facilitates the systematic examination of film texts and enables recurrent semiotic patterns to be identified in a way that, is – at least in part – analogous to approaches within corpus linguistics to the analysis of language-only texts.
