This paper describes the compilation and subsequent analysis of a comparable corpus of travel journalism in three languages (English, Italian, and Polish). By means of a corpus-driven methodology, our study focuses on adjective/noun pairings, extracting a list of statistically significant collocations for each language and observing differences and similarities with those of the other two. Social Networks Analysis tools are used to highlight the most productive collocates. Finally, collocations concerning selected themes are analysed across the three corpora, highlighting how this approach may provide valuable input to the production of reference materials for translators.

Abstract

This paper describes the compilation and subsequent analysis of a comparable corpus of travel journalism in three languages (English, Italian, and Polish). By means of a corpus-driven methodology, our study focuses on adjective/noun pairings, extracting a list of statistically significant collocations for each language and observing differences and similarities with those of the other two. Social Networks Analysis tools are used to highlight the most productive collocates. Finally, collocations concerning selected themes are analysed across the three corpora, highlighting how this approach may provide valuable input to the production of reference materials for translators.
