Corpus linguistics: technologies for language research, teaching and learning

Corpus linguistics: technologies for language
research, teaching and learning

Xi’an Jiaotong Liverpool University (XJTLU), Suzhou, China
28-30 June 2012

Abstract submission deadline: 1 March 2012
Notification of acceptance: 15 March 2012

Corpora are important. They have been widely used in language
technology and lexicography. Rapid advances in computing have in
recent years enabled the integration of corpora into language teaching
and learning. New tools for corpus construction and consultation help
researchers, lexicographers and teachers collect and analyse data and
use corpora more effectively. The conference aims to advance the state
of the art in the use of corpora in applied linguistics and to spread
awareness and expertise in corpus use, by offering:

1. Keynote speeches from five internationally renowned corpus linguists

2. A platform for all corpus-based researchers, whether in
linguistics, language teaching, lexicography or other fields

3. Lab/workshop sessions presenting practical advice on how language
teachers and learners can benefit from using corpora, inside and out
of the classroom. Teachers without any background on corpus can also
benefit from the workshops

4. An opportunity for software developers to present their work

Topics include, but are not confined to:

  • Corpora and CALL
  • Corpus construction and new technology
  • Corpora in language teaching and learning
  • Access to online corpora
  • Software development for corpus linguistics
  • Learner corpora
  • Multimedia corpora
  • Bilingual corpora
  • Corpora in translation studies
  • Corpora for grammar, vocabulary, and language skills
