Abstract:

Corpus-Based Approaches to ELT presents a compilation of research exploring
different ways to apply corpus-based and corpus-informed approaches to
English language teaching.

Starting with an overview of research in the field of corpus linguistics
and language teaching, various scenarios including academic and
professional settings, as well as English as International Language, are
described. Corpus-Based Approaches to ELT goes on to put forward several
chapters focusing on error analysis using learner corpora and comparable
native speaker corpora. Some of these chapters use translations and their
original sources, while others compare the production of learners from
different L1 in multilingual learner corpora. Also presented are new tools
for corpus processing: a query program for parallel corpora, and the
provision of tools to implement pedagogical annotation. The last section
discuss the challenges and opportunities that multilayered and multimodal
corpora may pose to corpus linguistic investigation.

This book will be indispensible to those teaching in higher education and
wishing to develop corpus-based approaches, as well as researchers in the
field of English Language Teaching.
