Our overarching aim is to combine the theories, methodologies and methods of these areas to provide an empirical account of the ways in the discourse semantics of risk have undergone longitudinal change, determining in the process which kinds of methods are suitable for further corpus-driven research into risk and develop analytical sensitivity for known and new dimensions. Selecting an appropriate data set for our study involved consideration of both sociological and practical.
