Corpus linguistics in Sweden: Pioneers and their context first presents the early international development for corpus linguistics and the institutional and disciplinary conditions for research on the subject in Sweden. Accounts of the first generationsof Swedish innovators in the 1960s then demonstrate the significance of the international scholarly development and external funding for their success. An analysis of the international development of the researsh field points to two well-defined clusters: one consisting of scholars with a background in language studies and another with scholars of cognitive science and psychology with an interest in language acquisition and language loss. Moreover, the study shows the increasing institutionalization of the field over time through the foundation of professional associations and journals.
