 CALL FOR PAPERS

 TEACHING AND LANGUAGE CORPORA (TALC96)

 Lancaster University 9 - 12th August 1996


AIMS OF THE CONFERENCE

While the use of computer text corpora in research is now well
established, they are now being used increasingly for teaching
purposes. This includes the use of corpus data to inform and create
teaching materials; it also includes the direct exploration of corpora
by students, both in the study of linguistics and of foreign
languages. Talc96 will build upon the success of Talc94, which brought
together researchers and teachers who are involved in such work, to
take part in an international exchange of current experience and
expertise.

THEMES

KEY THEME: Talc96 will have a special focus on evaluating the claims
made for corpora in linguistics and language teaching. Papers with this
theme are especially welcome.

OTHER THEMES: which the conference is expected to cover include -

1.) The use of corpora in student led learning and investigation.
2.) Software for corpus based language and linguistics learning.
3.) Developing corpora for teaching purposes.
4.) The exploitation of corpus based teaching and learning materials.
 and learning materials II
5.) The theory and practice of corpus based teaching and learning.

Papers not falling within those themes, but relevant to the broad
thrust of the conference, are still welcome.

Papers presented at the conference will be of the typical 20 minutes
talk plus ten minutes of questions format.

WORKSHOPS

Talc96 will also host several workshops related to teaching and language
corpora. To give an example of what those workshops may be, Talc94
had a variety of workshops such as "Multilingual Corpus Building" and
"Concordancing and Corpus Retrieval". Should you wish to hold a practical
workshop at Talc96, please follow the submission guidelines below, but
clearly indicate on the submission that you wish it to be considered
as a workshop.

Workshops will be of one to two hour duration.
