Nagoya British Council:
Workshop for English Teachers: Word Sketches
Date: Saturday, August 30th, 2003 Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Speaker: Adam Kilgarriff, University of Brighton
A word sketch is a one-page, automatically-produced, corpus-based summary of a word's grammatical and collocational behaviour. Dr Adam Kilgarriff, University of Brighton will introduce word sketches, and describe how they have been used in dictionary-making. We shall then all explore using word sketches, both for preparing exercises, and, simply, to find out how a word is used in natural, native-speaker English.
Organization: The British Council Nagoya Centre (Nagoya British Council)
Venue: British Council Nagoya Centre, NHK Nagoya Broadcasting Centre Bldg. 6F, 1-13-3 Higashi Sakura, Higashi-ku, Nagoya
