Review quote

Gives many instructive examples of statistical techniques applied to language data, provides exercises at the end of each chapter, and has a clear glossary. This book is essential for learning statistical analysis of texts. Most importantly, Oakes's is the only current corpus-linguistic book that devotes such a large portion of its pages to stylistics ! the whole book is worthwhile for the literary scholar.
