The study of recurrent word combinations such as lexical bundles has become a focus of many corpus-based studies in the last decade. This presentation reports the findings of a study which analyzed the use of lexical bundles in two 1,000,000-word corpora of published history writing, one in English from American journals and one in Spanish, from Argentinean publications. The analyses showed that the bundles identified in each language had many features in common.
