Title: EARS: A User’s Manual
Written By: Ana Díaz-Negrillo
Series Title: LINCOM Scientific Reference Books 01

Intended for researchers, pre- and post-graduate students and foreign
language teachers interested in corpus linguistics, this book is a valuable
and original source of documentation for the tagger EARS: a system of tags
for annotation of written errors at spelling, punctuation, word, phrase,
clause and lexis levels in English learner corpora. This manual gives a
thorough description of the tagger, and a fully exemplified account of the
guidelines for its application. This publication finds its place among
other databases, for example, LOB, BNC, ICLE, or software releases, like
MicroConc or WorthSmith Tools, with which it shares their applicability in
language corpus research. However, this one is distinctive in that it is
specific to learner corpus research, where few specific tools and detailed
manuals have been made available to date.
