A corpus (corpora in plural form) is generally speaking a substantive collection of language data processed in machine-readable form for research purposes. Corpora are sampled or collected under comparatively less controlled but more “ecological” conditions to allow more research questions to be posed. Corpus Linguistics methods have become popular due to the increased availability of corpora and statistics tools (Wallis, S., 2020, pp. 3-5).
