Announcing a new book!
Out on 11th June 2002
"Corpus Studies in Language Education"
Edited by Melinda Tan
© 2002, IELE Press (214 pages)
US $10 (450 Thai Baht)
This book is the first of its kind: it is made up of a collection of papers
from scholars in Europe and Asia who describe the applications of corpora in
various areas of language education. The contributors have made use of a
corpus-based approach to linguistics in their analyses of authentic data
taken from different English reference and learner corpora around
Each section of the book introduces the reader to a specific area in language
education which could benefit from the findings presented by the corpus-based
investigations in this collection. Clear examples and analyses are given in
order to present objective evidence for the findings. Two appendices have
also been provided with useful information to assist readers who might be
interested in conducting their own corpus-based investigations: a) a list of
on-line corpus resources in English and b) a background description of the
first on-line Thai English Learner Corpus (TELC) in South-East Asia.
