The Corpus of Late Modern English Texts, version 3.0

 

The Corpus of Late Modern English Texts, version 3.0 (CLMET3.0) has been created by Hendrik De Smet, Hans-Jürgen Diller and Jukka Tyrkkö, as an offshoot of a bigger project developing a database of text descriptors (Diller, De Smet & Tyrkkö 2011). CLMET3.0 is a principled collection of public domain texts drawn from various online archiving projects. In total, the corpus contains some 34 million words of running text. It incorporates CLMET and CLMETEV, and has been compiled following roughly the same principles, that is:

The corpus covers the period 1710-1920, divided into three 70-year sub-periods.The texts making up the corpus have all been written by British authors who are native speakers of English.The corpus never contains more than three texts by the same author.The texts within each sub-period have been written by authors born within a correspondingly restricted sub-period.

However, compared to CLMET and CLMETEV, it comes with a number of important improvements (in addition to being substantially bigger):

CLMET3.0 comes with an explicit genre classification.It is approximately genre-balanced.It is part-of-speech tagged.The corpus files have standardized text headers containing descriptive meta-data.For each text, explicit information is provided on text provenance.The corpus architecture allows subsequent expansions.

Why has the lexical approach been so long in coming?

Why has the lexical approach been so long in coming? | Applied Corpus Linguistics | Scoop.it

The discovery of chunks of language from every-day English were meant to revolutionise teaching (RT @HelenCFinch: Corpus linguistics should revolutionise #language learning. Why has the lexical approach been so long in coming? [...]

Findings such as this one underpinned Lewis's lexical approach which proposed shifting the focus from what's possible to what's probable. In other words, instead of learning abstract grammar rules and then finding the words to fill the slots, learners' attention should be directed to most common, prototypical examples of grammar in use. As far as vocabulary is concerned, new vocabulary items should likewise be presented "in company" of other words that frequently co-occur with them.

I hadn't seen this collocation dictionary before. I like that it sorts the examples and provides concordance lines with each.
