Title: Spoken Corpora in Applied Linguistics
Edited By: Mari Carmen Campoy-Cubillo
María José Luzón
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11275
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 51
Description:

This volume explores the opportunities that spoken corpora offer and the
challenges of research with such corpora. The use and applications of
spoken corpora are discussed from the perspective of both language analysis
and language pedagogy. Twelve chapters written by corpus linguists analyse
an extensive number of spoken corpora based on the oral production of
speakers as varied as language learners, users of English as Lingua Franca,
native speakers, or speakers of English in academic contexts. This book
also highlights the growing emphasis on the use of corpus-based research by
examining the implications of corpus findings in educational settings.
