Summary/Abstract: In the last twenty years, contrastive linguistic research has benefited greatly from the introduction of parallel corpora; the valuable “bilingual output” supplied by translations “provides a basis of comparison, or at least justifies the assumption of comparability” (Gast, forthcoming, p. 8). This paper subjects the methodology of using parallel corpora for contrastive linguistic research to a critical analysis.
