Abstract

In this presentation, I argue for the important role of applied corpus linguistics as a methodological approach in
language and social research in contributing linguistics-based explications of workplace discourse. Applied corpus
linguistics is understood to include the use of corpus resources, techniques, and tools in order to, for example, examine
patterning in public discourses so as to obtain novel understandings of how language is used and construed in specific
contexts (Thompson & Friginal, 2020). I analyze frequency-based distributions and their various macro and micro
societal and policy implications from specialized corpora of (primarily) English discourses in the workplace.
