We are pleased to announce the release of the second version of the
International Corpus of Learner English. ICLEv2 contains 3.7 million words
of writing from higher intermediate to advanced learners of English
representing 16 different mother tongue backgrounds (Bulgarian, Chinese,
Czech, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian,
Polish, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Tswana). It differs from the
first version published in 2002 not only by its increased size and range of
learner populations, but also by its interface, which contains two new
functionalities: built-in concordancer allowing users to search for word
forms, lemmas and/or parts-of-speech tags and breakdown of the query
results according to the learner profile information.

The accompanying ICLEv2 Handbook contains a detailed description of the
corpus, a user's manual and an overview of the ELT situation in the
countries of origin of the learners.

There are three types of licence (for non-profit research purposes only):
single user, multiple-user (2-10) and multiple-user (11-25).

The corpus can be ordered online at http://www.i6doc.com

Best wishes,

Sylviane Granger (on behalf of the editors)
