		 Teaching And Language Corpora 1998
	 Keble College, Oxford, 24 - 27 July 1998

		 Second Call for Proposals

The use of large computer-held corpora of real language, no longer
novel in linguistic research, is increasingly a focus of attention for
language teachers. Experiments in data driven learning and
corpus-based methods are beginning to bear fruit in a wide range of
language teaching environments. This international conference will
bring together practitioners and theorists with a common interest in
the usability of corpus data for such purposes as:
 * language teaching and learning
 * student-centred learning and investigation
 * cross-linguistic comparison
 * cultural and historical studies

Following the highly successful TALC94 and TALC96 conferences at
Lancaster University, TALC98 invites proposals for position papers,
reports of work in progress, case-histories of successful corpus
applications, and introductions to relevant new resources. 

The programme will include plenary lectures from Professor Jean
Aitchison (Oxford) and from Jeremy Clear (Cobuild). Other speakers
will include: Guy Aston (Bologna); Lou Burnard (Oxford); Prof Michael
Hoey (Liverpool); Knut Hofland (Bergen); Bernhard Kettemann (Graz);
Tony McEnery (Lancaster); Chris Tribble (Warsaw).

For further details, please read the conference web site at, or send enquiries by email to


Abstracts (500 - 1000 words) should be submitted to arrive by 20 
March 1998. All proposals will be reviewed. Authors of accepted 
papers will be notified by 10 April 1998. The programme will be
finalised during May 1998. Full papers (up to 5000 words) must be
received by 1 June for inclusion in the conference pre-print volume.

The conference will run from lunchtime on Friday 24 July to lunchtime
on Monday July 27th, with a single strand of presentations. There will
be a book and software exhibit in parallel.
