Qs: Corpus & ELT;African languages Glottochronology List

Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows <kevinlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Dear all,

I'm interested in finding and reading/discussing ways of using corpus
material in English Language Teaching.

If you are developing a corpus of English, I'm curious to know if and how
you think this material can be applied in the classroom.

If you have done/published any work on the subject, please email me a link
to your article.

I'll submit a summary to Linguistlist within a few days of the publication
of this query.

Thank you very much,
Yordanka Kavalova
