1Lexis, an e-journal boasting an International Scientific Committee (ISSN 1951-6215), publishes papers on the English lexicon written from both synchronic and diachronic perspectives, in the form of two annual thematic issues, as well as book reviews and a number of special issues containing conference proceedings. It is hosted in France by the Groupe de Recherche en Linguistique Anglaise (GRLA), Centre d’Etudes Linguistiques (CEL), Jean Moulin University – Lyon 3. It has already published four issues: issue #1 dealt with “Polysemy”, issue #2 with “Lexical Submorphemics”, issue #3 with “Borrowing”, and special issue #1 was devoted to the links between “Lexicology and phonology”.

2The six articles devoted to “Corpus linguistics and the lexicon” show the growing part played by corpus linguistics in any lexical studies, and pave the way for future research.

3Finally, as editor of Lexis, I would like to extend my warmest thanks to Henri Béjoint, Diana Lewis and François Maniez who agreed to be in charge of this issue on corpus linguistics and the lexicon, as well as to the members of the International Scientific Committee who refereed the papers submitted. My thanks also go to the authors of the six papers appearing in this issue for their interest in Lexis and for putting up with my numerous emails during the refereeing process.
