Knut Hofland has been closely and continuously connected with two seminal developments in the history of corpus linguistics: the development of the organization known as ICAME (in full: the International Computer Archive of Modern and Medieval English), and the development of the Brown Family of Corpora. The best way I can find to pay tribute to Knut's key contribution to corpus linguistics is to sketch the history of these two interconnected development of corpus linguistics, and of his role in them.
Keywords: ICAME; Brown Family
