Collocations and Word Lists

Date: Saturday, May 25th, 2013 Time: 2:45 PM - 4:45 PM

Speaker: Dongkwang Shin

In this presentation, Dr. Dongkwang Shin will introduce two topics to the audience. The first topic is collocations. In particular, the speech will include what collocations are, how collocations can be extracted from a corpus, and how collocations can be taught.

The second topic is about making one's own graded word lists. Especially for teachers, the presentation will introduce a method for making word lists, and how to add them to the RANGE program in order to better analyze students' writing drafts.

Dongkwang Shin received his PhD under the tutelage of Paul Nation in Applied Linguistics in 2007 from Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand. His expertise is in vocabulary learning and teaching, corpus linguistics, and language testing. He is currently working for the Korean Institute of Curriculum and Evaluation.
