All problems likely to be encountered by anyone who intends to prepare a literary concordance are discussed on a practical level, although there is substantial examination of more advanced concording techniques which the computer makes it possible to adopt. Although the emphasis is on works in English, the structural principles which are analysed in the book can be applied readily to works in other languages
