The paper is concerned with problems of methodology. Against this background, the situation of today's corpora is discussed and some fields are identified as being in a far from satisfactory shape. The place of corpora in linguistics is briefly looked at, suggesting that structuralist tradition is the only one to use them extensively. Problems of annotation and ways, less (statistical) or more successful (rule-based), are raised and discussed. Here, some of the most serious shortcomings, such as multi-word units or status of language units in general that computational linguists should deal with, are listed. In a more general direction, implications and status of paradigmatics and syntagmatics are discussed, too, with considerable and critical attention paid to ontologies.
