Abstract

This article demonstrates how studies which work on the interface between language and literature can resort to corpus linguistics to develop evidence-based analyses. In this sense, they avoid – to a certain extent – the subjectivism of hermeneutic interpretations. From the notions of foregrounding and defamiliarization and from the description of language proposed by corpus linguistics, the studies here described indicate but a few paths to be taken by those who intend to work on the meeting-ground between literature and corpus linguistics.
