 "CORPUS LINGUISTICS FOR KOREAN LANGUAGE LEARNING & TEACHING"
			 SUMMER INSTITUTE

			 June 30-July 11, 2003
		 http://nflrc.hawaii.edu/prodev/CLKor/

Corpus linguistics studies take advantage of the existence of large
collections of language production (written or spoken language) in
order to investigate a language. Foreign language pedagogy is now
beginning to see new possibilities for recent advances in corpus
linguistics to improve language teaching and learning. Readily
available Korean-language corpora and easy-to-use tools can now be
used on the spot in a language teaching context, by teachers and
learners without extensive training in computational linguistics, and
studies of linguistic features can be tailored to specific pedagogic
context and learning requirements.

The NFLRC Summer Institute workshop "Corpus Linguistics for Korean
Language Learning and Teaching" will acquaint participants with the
basic concepts of corpus linguistics, including corpus construction
and annotation, concordancing, frequency counts and ranks, grammatical
tagging, and related concepts. Participants will learn how to access
Korean corpora and how to use the available computer programs for
Korean corpus analysis. The workshop will outline techniques for the
teacher to use in materials preparation and curriculum design and for
the individual learner to use in exploring meaning, structure, and use
in Korean. In the second part of the workshop, participants will
engage in individual projects chosen with their own learning goals in
mind.

 THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS FEBRUARY 1, 2003
