Anonym: Language and Literature. A Corpus Stylistic Approach to Charles Dickens, GRIN Verlag GmbH,Sep 2013 ISBN: 9783656416999
Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Osnabrück, language: English, abstract: Early Corpus linguistics and stylistics began with Chomsky s approach to language. He explicitly stated that there are three levels of adequacy upon which grammatical and linguistic theories can be evaluated: observational adequacy, descriptive adequacy and explanatory adequacy .This revolution through Chomsky founded the basis for corpus-based analysis, a method which uses adequate examples to give introspection how a language works and how it is used by different authors. Corpus-based analysis offers new insights into studies of language and new computer tools and software make it possible to get access to a wide range of electronic corpora.In my research paper I will carry out a corpus stylistic approach to the language of 19th century author Charles Dickens. This means that I will basically focus on his special register and investigate his use of particular clusters as recurrent combinations of words used in his corpus. Furthermore, I will focus on A Christmas Carol (1843) as an exemplifying novel of how language patterns are used by Dickens. This masterpiece has the smallest number of words of all his novels, namely 28.541 , which renders it a special challenge to analyse. Moreover, it hasn t been analysed by many corpus linguists before which puts A Christmas Carol in the light of a nearly unexamined piece of art ready to explore.My thesis which will be developed in the following chapters would be that Dickens s novels, especially A Christmas Carol, provide a unit of meaning, their own worlds of text, in which Dickens s unique style can be sifted out, providing recurring clusters which offer a corpus work based on effective comparison.To enter the deep analysis to provide a well-worked out research paper I will start with a description and findings of corpus analysis. Secondly, I will spend a chapter on three-, four- and five-word clusters in the Dickens Corpus and especially A Christmas Carol with particular focus on five-word clusters. Moreover, I will introduce the five categories of labels, body part, speech, time and place and as if clusters and examine these categories in Dickens s Great Expectations (1861) and A Christmas Carol as two examples of a contrastive analysis. I will finish my work by concluding my previous discoveries.

Charles Dickens: A Christmas Carol (Illustrated Edition) (Dodo Press) Dodo Press,Aug 2007 ISBN: 9781406554526
A Christmas Carol in Prose, Being a Ghost Story of Christmas (commonly known as A Christmas Carol ) is what Charles Dickens described as his 'little Christmas Book' and was first published on December 19, 1843 with illustrations by John Leech. Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812-1870), also known as 'Boz', was the foremost English novelist of the Victorian era, as well as a vigorous social campaigner. Considered one of the English language's greatest writers, he was acclaimed for his rich storytelling and memorable characters, and achieved massive worldwide popularity in his lifetime. The popularity of his novels and short stories has meant that not one has ever gone out of print. Dickens wrote serialised novels, the usual format for fiction at the time, and each new part of his stories was eagerly anticipated by the reading public. Among his best-known works are Sketches by Boz (1836), The Pickwick Papers (1837), Oliver Twist (1838), Nicholas Nickleby (1839), Barnaby Rudge (1841), A Christmas Carol (1843), Martin Chuzzlewit (1844), David Copperfield (1850), Bleak House (1853), Little Dorrit (1857), A Tale of Two Cities (1859), Great Expectations (1861) and Our Mutual Friend (1865).

Dickens, Charles; Three Christmas Tales, Berlin, Seven Seas Publishers, 1958.
die Seitens ind gebräunt, der Einband ist leicht fleckig und an den Kanten bestoßen, When Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol in 1843, ihe was already the acclaimed author of a journalistic sketdibook, six novels and a travel book. And yet A Christmas Carol set a new precedent for the writer whom readers on both sides of the Atlantic hailed as England's great man of letters. So successful was this Story that Dickens wrote a new book for Christmas in each of the four years that foiiowed. Dickens described these five as "a whimsical sort of masque intended to awaken loving and forbearing thoughts." The present Seven Seas Books edition contains the first three of the famous Dickens Christmas tales. It is the publisher's hope that readers will delight anew in their old friend A Christmas Carol; and will be moved to a new appreciation for Dickens's passion for justice when reading The Chimes; and be warmed by the love of Dot and John in The Cricket on the Hearth...
