Abstract:

The papers brought together in this volume illustrate how spoken corpora (be
they native or learner corpora) can provide insights into various aspects of errors
and disfluencies such as pauses and discourse markers. They show, among
others, that such phenomena can be influenced by factors like gender, age or
genre, and that they can correlate with, e.g., informativeness and syntactic
complexity. Crucially, they also demonstrate that items which are often
dismissed as mere disfluencies can fulfil important functions and thus play an
essential role in the management of spoken discourse. The book should appeal
to linguists who are interested in spoken language in general and in errors and
disfluencies in speech in particular, as well as to specialists in second language
acquisition and language testing who want to know more about the nature of
fluency and accuracy. Originally published in International Journal of Corpus
Linguistics 16:2 (2011)
