Following the highly successful conferences in Lancaster (1994 and 1996),

use of corpus tools for such purposes as:
- first and second language teaching and learning
- language awareness raising
- teaching languages for specific purposes
- student-centered linguistic investigation
- interpreting and translation studies
- cultural and historical studies
- teaching literature

The conference will be held in the mediaeval hill-top village of Bertinoro

will be held on July 27.

Invited speakers (confirmed): Bernhard Kettemann, John Sinclair, Henry
