Akita JALT:

The Corpus Linguistics Approach to Language Teaching: Trends, Directions, and Challenges

Date: Saturday, September 28th, 2002 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Naoko Taguchi

Description:
Recently there has been a growing interest in the use of language corpora and computer analysis tools for second language education. This presentation discusses recent developments in the field of corpus linguistics, particularly its applications to TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language). Some applications include:

  • descriptions of English grammar in actual context,
  • ESL materials development,
  • potential changes toward more authentic testing, and
  • descriptions of academic discourse in U.S. university settings.
This presentation provides an overview of these applications with examples.
