Title: Exploring New Paths in Language Pedagogy
Subtitle: Lexis and Corpus-Based Language Teaching
Edited By: María Moreno Jaén
Fernando Serrano Valverde
Maria Calzada Perez
Series Title: Equinox English Linguistics and ELT
Description:

This volume brings together current research and practical innovations in
the field of foreign language teaching. The contributions are all by
well-known experts in the area. More specifically, the volume aims to give
some comprehensive and updated coverage of theory, research and practice in
two of the most challenging issues in today’s English language teaching
scenarios: the development of L2 vocabulary knowledge and the contribution
of new corpus-based evidence to language teaching. The first section of the
volume presents a comprehensive overview of relevant issues in the field of
L2 vocabulary acquisition, where surveys of the state of the art in the
area combine with empirical studies which approach the topic from the field
of applied linguistics (teaching techniques, material writing), as well as
from complementary disciplines such as semantics, phraseology and
lexicography. The second section of the book delves into the pedagogical
applications of current research in the field of corpus-based studies. The
papers collected here explore the potential of new corpus evidence for the
development of foreign language learners’ competence. The final section
bridges the gap between theory and practice by bringing together an
intensely practical collection of papers offering useful advice on how to
deal with vocabulary and/or corpora in the foreign language classroom that
are derived from teaching and research conducted at the University of
Granada (Spain). Though some papers involve reference to other languages
such as French and Spanish, this is essentially a study of corpus and
lexical theory as applied to contemporary English. The volume is backed up
by an independent, dedicated website maintained by the editors, containing
web-based activities and vocabulary tests.
