This article reports a state-of-art review of recent development on corpus linguistics and corpus-based research in Hong Kong. A top-down, multi-layer, stratified review identified 29 on-going research projects from the eight research-active universities in Hong Kong. These projects make use of corpus technology to address a wide range of research questions related to issues in language teaching and learning, linguistic studies, cultural studies, information technology, and sign language. Such diversified applications of corpus technology clearly indicate the great potential and opportunities that corpus linguistics can afford for researchers, language educators and learners to explore and collaborate.
