Ellen F. Prince was a pioneer in linguistic pragmatics, producing seminal work on the linguistic marking of informational and attentional statuses of linguistic expressions and their meanings, on the discourse functions of syntactic constructions, and on cross-linguistic comparison and contact-driven change in the discourse and other components of language. In the course of her work, she also pioneered the use of naturally-occurring data in linguistic research, long predating the advent of electronic corpora.
