Derived from the successful International Seminar on Corpus Linguistics,
New Trends in Language Teaching and Translation Studies: In Honour of John
Sinclair (Granada, September 2008), organised by the research groups ADELEX
(Assessing and Developing Lexical Competence) and ECPC (European Comparable
and Parallel Corpora), seven contributions from well-known scholars in the
field focus their attention on recent advances made in Corpus Linguistics
in Language Teaching. The first four chapters deal with more practical
issues of applying corpora to language learning and teaching, examining
particularly the integration of data-driven learning and different types of
corpora including pedagogical, spoken multimedia and parallel. The last
three chapters are concerned more with corpus-based research for language
teaching arguing for more refined statistical methodology, comparing
conversational features of the British National Corpus with a micro-corpus
of movies and forwarding the case for research into corpus-based,
meaning-oriented multimodal annotation, respectively. This volume is homage
to John Sinclair's academic legacy and the groundbreaking work which
continues to honour his name.

Publisher: Peter Lang AG

Author: Roger Berry
Paperback: ISBN: 9783034300131 Pages: 262 Price: U.S. $ 68.95
Paperback: ISBN: 9783034300131 Pages: 262 Price: U.K. £ 40.10

Based on original research and novel concepts, this book investigates the
nature and use of terminology from linguistic and applied viewpoints.
Throughout, problems with terminology, such as overuse by teachers and
cases of synonymy and polysemy, are considered and solutions are offered.

Part One looks firstly at some basic concepts, then draws important
distinctions between pedagogic and scientific terminology, and between
transparent, opaque and iconic terms, before examining the historical,
lexical and grammatical nature of terms.

Part Two attempts to estimate the value and relevance of terminology in
language teaching and describes the use and knowledge of terminology in
various language-teaching-related constituencies: learners, teachers,
textbooks, grammars and research. It concludes with a discussion of the
criteria for evaluating terms and an analysis of terms used in ELT.

Contents: Pedagogic and scientific terminology - Types of terms - The
development of terms - The lexis of terms - The grammar of terms - The
place of terminology in language teaching - Terminology and learners'
knowledge - Terminology and teachers - Terminology in pedagogic grammars -
Grammatical terminology in textbooks - Terminology in research and testing
- Evaluating terms: some criteria for the selection of terms - A
metalingual analysis of English grammatical terms.

Roger Berry has been involved in English language teaching as a teacher,
writer, teacher-trainer and lecturer for over thirty years. He has
published and edited numerous articles and several books on English
Grammar, language teaching, terminology and language awareness. He has
taught in many parts of the world; currently he is at Lingnan University in
Hong Kong.
