From Corpus to Classroom
Language Use and Language Teaching
Other available formats:
The book summarises and makes accessible recent work in corpus research, focusing particularly on spoken data. It is based on analysis of corpora such as CANCODE and Cambridge International Corpus and is written with particular reference to the development of corpus-informed pedagogy. It examines the relevance of corpora to materials writers, course designers and language teachers and considers the needs of the learner in relation to authentic data. It shows how the answers to key questions such as 'Is there a basic, everyday vocabulary for English?', 'How should idioms be taught?' and 'What are the most common spoken language chunks?' are best explored by means of a clearer understanding of the workings of language in context.
- Explains in a clear and accessible way how to build your own corpus.
- Includes real examples of language in use.
- Represents the latest developments in corpus research.
