Language and Covid-19: special issue of the International Journal of Corpus Linguistics 26:4, 2021

Michaela Mahlberg & Gavin Brookes, editors of IJCL:

“When we circulated the call for papers for this Special Issue in July 2020, we received over 100 proposals. This, we feel, is testament to the applied nature of corpus linguistics, as well as to the innovativeness of our research community to respond rapidly and creatively to the most urgent global challenges of our time.”
