Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to identify relationships between phraseology and epistemology in the discourses of two humanities disciplines, history and literary criticism. The empirical focus of the chapter will be on two large computerized corpora of book review texts compiled from academic journals in these two disciplines. Using the tools and methods of corpus-driven linguistics (Tognini-Bonelli, 2001; Hunston, 2002; Sinclair, 2003, 2004), I will show how one of the core epistemological values of history and literary criticism as humanities disciplines is reflected in a range of notable phraseological features in the peer review genres represented by these two corpora.
