Learner Corpus Research: New Perspectives and Applications


Add your own review!

Overview

This volume showcases original, agenda-setting studies in the field of learner corpus research of both spoken and written production. The studies have important applications for classroom pedagogy. The volume brings readers up-to-date with new written and spoken learner corpora, often looking at previously under-examined variables in learner corpus investigations. It also demonstrates innovative applications of learner corpus findings, addressing issues such as the effect of task, the effect of learner variables and the nature of learner language. The volume is of significant interest to researchers working in corpus linguistics, learner corpus research, second language acquisition and English for Academic and Specific Purposes, as well to practitioners interested in the application of the findings in language teaching and assessment.

Reviews

This volume is an invaluable resource to a wide range of readers, including applied linguists and teachers, who are interested in the learner language and corpus-based research. Researchers can use this book to find exemplary studies with great reporting practices. Especially appreciating readers would be practitioners who have been longing for empirical evidence as to whether their instinct about learner language can be empirically studied, and if so what they could do with those inter-language patterns. * Linguist List *
