For comparison, Scott and Tribble (2006: 78–79) use a cut- off point of 5 per cent in their discussion of the key keywords of the BNC, and the highest ranked key keyword in their analysis (you) is key in only 30 per cent of the texts in the BNC. Our corpus has much higher percentages due to its specialized nature. It is a design feature of the BNC that it should be heterogeneous, while the purpose of the PhD literature review corpus is to represent a particular genre in a single field.

In this study, we will use the British National Corpus as our reference corpus. A key keyword is simply a keyword which is key in multiple texts in a corpus. Key keyword identification has a number of uses, but as far as the present study is concerned, its purpose is to ensure that no single text in the corpus has a disproportionate effect on the analysis. Key keyness thus helps to reduce the likelihood that the resulting keyword lists are overly influenced by any particular author’s idiolect or by text-internal patterns of repetition.
