Usefulness of corpus linguistic methods in the analysis of phrasemes in journalistic texts
[Utilité des méthodes de linguistiques de corpus dans l’analyse des phrasèmes dans les textes journalistiques]
The aim of this study is to demonstrate the usefulness of corpus linguistic methods in the analysis of phrasemes in journalistic texts. We analyze the phrasemes containing an ethnonym in the French and/ or Slovak languages in four monolingual corpora of journalistic texts (each of which comprises approximately 55 million to 600 million words) compared to four corpora of contrast (each of which comprises approximately nearly 130 million to 10 billion words). We search and observe these phrasemes using query language and corpus linguistics methods (CQL/ CQP language, relative frequency, and MI-Score test) to demonstrate statistically significant recurrences of these phrasemes and their specificity rate.
Key words: phrasemes, methods of corpus linguistics, ethnonyms, journalistic texts
