Qs: Use of Corpora in Language Testing and Assessment

Editor for this issue: Catherine Adams <catherinlinguistlist.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.

asked the same question 3 years ago and those responses are summarised in


Please contact me off-list if you know of any relevant information,
projects or references. I would appreciate any suggestions by the end of
November and will post a summary of responses to the list.

Thanks in advance.
