Book: Corpora, Language, Teaching, and Resources: From Theory to Practice


Corpora, Language, Teaching, and Resources: From Theory to Practice
Edited by Natalie Kübler
Published by Peter Lang International Academic Publishers

Summary: This volume brings together a selection of papers originally presented at the 7th Teaching and Language Corpora Conference, which was held in Paris in 2006. The volume is divided into four parts and deals with the practice of corpus use, learner corpora, the creation of resources and tools, and the evaluation of resources. This book follows the TaLC tradition which takes into account the great vitality and huge increase in computer facilities for using corpora and creating resources in language teaching. Also, the book deals with the teaching of language-related fields, such as translation, linguistics, terminology, or even literature and cultural studies. Moreover, some articles in this volume tackle the more theoretical concepts of corpus linguistics that can be introduced in language teaching. Other articles deal with the more and more user-friendly tools that are created to help linguists compile resources appropriate to language teaching. By showing the diversity of the proposed approaches, of corpus types, and corpus analyses that can be used in teaching, this volume allows readers to follow the extremely dynamic evolution of the domain.
