New Trends in Corpora and Language Learning


Add your own review!

Overview

This title offers cutting-edge overview of current research and innovations in corpus-based and corpus-driven language teaching and learning. This book provides an up-to-date snapshot of recent research and developments in the use of corpora for language learning and teaching. It is divided into three parts. Part I focusses on innovative uses of corpora by language teachers and learners. These cover the world's first corpus-based TV program for the teaching of English conversation, as well as corpus-based approaches to the teaching of EAP, cultural studies and translation. Part II focuses on new corpus-based tools for LSP learning. Part III illustrates research findings from corpora consisting of language learner data and discusses their implications for language teaching and learning. It will appeal to scholars in both language teaching and learning and corpus and computational linguistics. The Corpus and Discourse series consists of two strands. The first, Research in Corpus and Discourse , features innovative contributions to various aspects of corpus linguistics and a wide range of applications, from language technology via the teaching of a second language to a history of mentalities. The second strand, Studies in Corpus and Discourse , is comprised of key texts bridging the gap between social studies and linguistics. Although equally academically rigorous, this strand will be aimed at a wider audience of academics and postgraduate students working in both disciplines.

Reviews

In this collection we see how corpora can bring benefits to students in such diverse areas as translation studies, academic writing and general language education. The chapters also remind us of how valuable it is to use corpus tools to investigate learner language and - centrally - of how and why one might put the tools for investigating language corpora into the hands of learners themselves.This is essential reading for language teachers and researchers with an interest in the direction of travel of corpus applications in language education. The volume helps us to understand where we have come from and points out those areas where we are likely to see the most value in future work in the investigation and use of corpus data in foreign language teaching and learning. --,
