Learner Corpora In Language Testing And Assessment

by Marcus Callies, Learner Corpora In Language Testing And Assessment Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Learner Corpora In Language Testing And Assessment books, The aim of this volume is to highlight the benefits and potential of using learner corpora for the testing and assessment of L2 proficiency in both speaking and writing, reflecting the growing importance of learner corpora in applied linguistics and second language acquisition research. Identifying several desiderata for future research and practice, the volume presents a selection of original studies, covering a variety of different languages. It features studies that present very thoroughly compiled new corpus resources which are tailor-made and ready for analysis in LTA, new tools for the automatic assessment of proficiency levels, and new methods of (self-)assessment with the help of learner corpora. Other studies suggest innovative research methodologies of how proficiency can be operationalized through learner corpus data. The volume is of particular interest to researchers in (applied) corpus linguistics, learner corpus research, language testing and assessment, as well as for materials developers and language teachers.

Learner Corpora And Language Teaching

by Sandra Götz, Learner Corpora And Language Teaching Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Learner Corpora And Language Teaching books, While native corpora and corpus linguistic tools and methods have been used and applied for quite some time in the development of learning and teaching materials, learner corpora are only just beginning to impact the field of language teaching, testing and assessment. This volume helps to close this still existing gap and highlights the great potential of learner corpus research for language pedagogy by presenting a selection of 11 original studies on learner corpora, conducted by established experts as well as by excellent young researchers. The papers included in the volume present new corpora and methods; studies on written as well as spoken learner corpora and on using data-driven learning scenarios in the classroom. All papers include sections on practical and concrete language-pedagogical applications. This volume will be of significant interest to researchers working in corpus linguistics, learner corpus research, second language acquisition and English for Academic and Specific Purposes, as well to language teachers and materials developers.

Corpora And Language Learners

by Guy Aston, Corpora And Language Learners Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Corpora And Language Learners books, Corpus-aided language pedagogy is one of the central application areas of corpus methodologies, and a test bed for theories of language and learning. This volume provides an overview of current trends, offering methodological and theoretical position statements along with results from empirical studies. The relationship between corpora and learning is examined from complementary perspectives — the study of learner language, the didactic use of corpus findings, and the interaction between corpora and their users. Reflections on current theory and technology open and close the volume.With its focus on the learner and the learning setting, Corpora and Language Learners is addressed to corpus linguists with an interest in learner language, applied linguists wishing to expand their understanding of corpora and their pedagogic potential, and language teachers wishing to critically assess the relevance of work in this field. This volume grew out of selected presentations at the 5th Teaching and Language Corpora conference in Bertinoro, Italy.

Using Corpora For Language Research

by Jenny Thomas, Using Corpora For Language Research Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Using Corpora For Language Research books, Corpus linguistics is a relatively new subject in linguistics whereby corpora, or collections of spoken or written texts, are stored on computer in a tagged form and used for linguistic analysis. Up until now, most corpus-based research has focused on grammar and lexicography, but as this text shows, the corpus approach can be applied to a wide range of areas of language study including translation, stylistics, foreign language teaching and language testing. This book is in honour of Geoffrey Leech, a leading contributor to the field of corpus linguistics.

The Handbook Of Technology And Second Language Teaching And Learning

by Carol A. Chapelle, The Handbook Of Technology And Second Language Teaching And Learning Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Handbook Of Technology And Second Language Teaching And Learning books, The Handbook of Technology and Second Language Teaching and Learning presents a comprehensive exploration of the impact of technology on the field of second language learning. The rapidly evolving language-technology interface has propelled dramatic changes in, and increased opportunities for, second language teaching and learning. Its influence has been felt no less keenly in the approaches and methods of assessing learners' language and researching language teaching and learning. Contributions from a team of international scholars make up the Handbook consisting of four parts: language teaching and learning through technology; the technology-pedagogy interface; technology for L2 assessment; and research and development of technology for language learning. It considers how technology assists in all areas of language development, the emergence of pedagogy at the intersection of language and technology, technology in language assessment, and major research issues in research and development of technologies for language learning. It covers all aspects of language including grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, listening, speaking, pragmatics, and intercultural learning, as well as new pedagogical and assessment approaches, and new ways of conceiving and conducting research and development. The Handbook of Technology and Second Language Teaching and Learning demonstrates the extensive, multifaceted implications of technology for language teachers, learners, materials-developers, and researchers.
