    Abstract

    The use of computerised corpora in translation research and education has attracted much attention in recent years, even from scholars who have not directly drawn on corpora in their own research or teaching (for example Tymoczko 1998). Much of this attention has provided valuable critical assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of using corpora in translation research and education, and has explicitly recognised that what corpus-based research offers us is not a theoretical paradigm as such but a set of tools and methodologies which complement rather than replace traditional ways of researching and teaching translation. This paper will attempt to contribute to the debate on corpora by placing corpus-based research within the broader context of emerging trends and priorities in the academy, and more specifically in translation studies.
