This article focuses critically on a relatively new way of doing linguistics, that is, Corpus Linguistics (CL). To do so, a general overview of the (re)emergence is presented and a theoretical background is analyzed in order to justify its independence as a linguistic research methodology but with robust principles. Also, my own definition of CL is proposed. A discussion of the possible status of CL as a theory is focused. To the end of the article, CL and Spanish language research is related.
