Abstract

In conjunction with the increasing availability of massive computerised diachronic corpora, advances in computational visualisation apparatus have further equipped diachronic corpus linguists with an array of elegant analytical tools to study and model diachronic constructional changes, which are often times too intricate to be detected through a mere eyeballing on tabular numerical data. Based on the Corpus of Historical American English (COHA), this paper exemplifies the application of one such tool called Motion Chart to visualise recent change in two English Future Constructions, i.e. will+INF and be going to+INF, regarding their infinitival collocates distribution.
