La geografia dello sport rappresenta ancora un campo scientifico quasi del tutto inesplorato nel nostro paese. Per la prima volta, un gruppo di studiosi provenienti da diverse discipline (principalmente geografia, pedagogia e sociologia) fa il punto della situazione partendo ciascuno dal proprio sapere disciplinare. Il presente volume, frutto di tali riflessioni scientifiche, offre spunti per lo sviluppo di questa fondamentale disciplina all’interno degli sport studies ed individua nello spazio il “luogo” (non solo “metaforico”) dell’incontro tra la geografia come scienza e lo sport come pratica culturale. Gli autori sono concordi nel sostenere che si tratta di uno spazio che la geografia deve contribuire a rendere più umano e sostenibile facendo in modo che lo sport possa trasformarsi non solo in una occasione di inclusione per il genere umano, ma anche in uno spazio di autentica convivenza tra l’uomo, le altre specie viventi e la natura di cui fanno parte.

This book describes an approach to lexis and grammar based on the concept of phraseology and of language patterning arising from work on large corpora. The notion of 'pattern' as a systematic way of dealing with the interface between lexis and grammar was used in Collins Cobuild English Dictionary (1995) and in the two books in the Collins Cobuild Grammar Patterns series (1996; 1998). This volume describes the research that led to these publications, and explores the theoretical and practical implications of the research. The first chapter sets the work in the context of work on phraseology. The next two chapters give several examples of patterns and how they are identified. Chapters 4 and 5 discuss and exemplify the association of pattern and meaning. Chapters 6, 7 and 8 relate the concept of pattern to traditional approaches to grammar and to discourse. Chapter 9 summarizes the book and adds to the theoretical discussion, as well as indicating the applications of this approach to language teaching. The volume is intended to contribute to the current debate concerning how corpora challenge existing linguistic theories, and as such will be of interest to researchers in the fields of grammar, lexis, discourse and corpus linguistics. It is written in an accessible style, however, and will be equally suitable for students taking courses in those areas.
