“The second release of the ICE-GB corpus with accompanying sound files, the first release of the DCPSE corpus and ICECUP Version 3.1 deserve serious examination from those involved in all flavours of corpus linguistics. They offer considerable opportunities for the analysis of recent language change in British English and for the analysis of discourse patterns (linguistic and extra-linguistic) from a syntactical perspective. They demonstrate how the Survey of English Usage continues to make new contributions to the use of corpora in linguistic analysis and theory.” - O’Donnell (2008).
