Small Corpus Studies and ELT. Theory and practice

Recent developments in this field of small corpus studies, largely
brought about by the personal computer, have yielded remarkable
insights into the nature and use of real language. This book presents
work by a number of leading researchers in the field and covers a
series of topics directly related to language teaching and language
research. The ultimate aim of this book is to encourage the
exploitation of small corpora by the ELT profession to make language
learning more effective. In addition to descriptions of the basic
corpus analysis tools, chapters in the collection cover syllabus and
materials design, comparisons of different genres, descriptions of
local and functional grammars, compilation and use of learner corpora,
and making cross-linguistic comparisons. The message of this
collection is that language use is purposeful and culture specific and
that small corpus analysis is an effective method of linguistic
investigation.
