Abstract:

Considerable progress has been made in the use of corpora for research
purposes to describe language in use, and more recently, through a CADS
(corpus assisted discourse studies) approach, to identify the discourse
features of specific text genres. While the potential benefits of working
with corpora in the classroom have been recognised, there has been a lag in
the promulgation of guidelines for carrying out meaningful corpus work with
language learners and teachers in mind. The papers in this volume aim to
make a contribution toward filling that gap by providing an in-depth
account of innovative corpus work, most of which has actually been carried
out with real learners in the classroom. Authors provide valuable insights
into ways of structuring corpus work for specific target learners, as well
as suggestions for resolving problematic issues that have arisen and
avoiding errors that have been made with learners and in their own research
and experimentation. The transparency and honesty with which they present
their methodology and results, along with the successful techniques they
have developed, constitute a step forward in defining good (and bad)
practice in the use of corpora in learning.
