Meeting Description:

Biannual conference on all aspects of learner corpus research, following the first LCR in Louvain, 2011. Learner corpora are collections of authentic language samples produced by second language learners, often annotated with error marking and personal characteristics of the learner. Research on these corpora is often aimed at studying transfer, cognitive strategies or other aspects of second language learning processes.

Call for Papers:

We welcome presentations that address all aspects of learner corpus research, in particular the following ones:

Corpus based transfer studies
Longitudinal and cross-linguistic learner corpora
Learner corpora for less commonly taught languages
Statistical methods in learner corpus studies
Search engines for learner corpora
Task and learner variables
Data mining and other explorative approaches to learner corpora
Corpora as pedagogical resources
Metaphors, idioms and multiword expressions in learner language
Innovative annotations in learner corpora
Error detection and correction of learner language
Links between learner corpus research and other research methodologies (e.g. experimental methods)
Learner corpora, native speaker norms and the English as a lingua franca debate
