1. Baker, P. (2010). Sociolinguistics and corpus linguistics. Edinburgh University Press.
Summary and analysis of the article
Although copus linguistics and sociolinguistics differ in terms of their scope, focus and
epistemology, author (Paul Baker) asserts that practitioner of each of the field views one
another as having varying research objectives and aims. He also suggests that the subjects are
not wholly organized in accord with the practices and methods of the other. However, the
author views this as unfortunate since languages in society cannot be evaluated or explored
without gathering data. Conversely, he argues that it is practically difficult to study corpus
without due consideration to the people who are the main source of information in society.
Therefore, two fields involve in examining and studying different parts but of same thing.
The author notes that there are beneficial exchanges between the two fields (corpus
linguistics and sociolinguistics). Therefore, the author suggests that the two fields should aim
at providing scholars and students who engage in studying linguistics “additional tools to
their working belts”.
The author involves in exploring different methodological processes of both corpus
linguistics and sociolinguistics. The author also explores important issues and pitfalls that
often arise when using corpora.
Commentary to the entry:
The article is written in a lucid and clear style that helps to engage the reader. Reading
through the article you can easily follow up for it is written in a clear language that is easy
and simple for a layman reader. In other words, the article is written for everyone whether
you are professed in linguistics or not. All the chapters cover in wide ranges of topics that
provide gainful ideas for both scholars and students of linguistics.

methods used in corpus linguistics can greatly help to improve the objectiveness of the
critical discourse research analysis. Taking this approach, the author argues, it can results in a
more valid and robust sets of researching findings and analyses. The author considers the
recent projects which were examining the representation of Muslims and Islam in the British
press. Procedures and methods of the corpus linguistics note that Muslim community tend to
be linked with the concept of extreme beliefs and ideologies considerably much more than a
strong or moderate belief. A study that was conducted in this recent past, the author notes,
showed notable differences across newspapers with about 2 in 99 Muslim people describing
some newspapers such as “The People” as extreme which 2 in 35 Muslim people viewed
“The Guardian” as extreme. Such and other patterns of quantification, the author notes,
require in-depth research that has to involve in exploring differing critical interpretations in
regards to what counts or amount to acceptable frequency.
Commentary on the article:
The author use a simple, straightforward and direct language that makes it easy for reader to
