CREA Oral, Real Academia Española

Jersus Colmenares's insight:

"El CREA oral está integrado por transcripciones de la lengua hablada; los documentos sonoros, que se obtienen a través de convenios con distintas instituciones y también mediante la grabación directa de Internet, se someten a un laborioso proceso de trascripción ortográfica y codificación."

Corpus linguistics in a MOOC – the future of education? | Macmillan

Corpus linguistics in a MOOC – the future of education? | Macmillan | Applied Corpus Linguistics to Education | Scoop.it

Charles Tiayon's curator insight, March 13, 12:03 AM

If somebody had told me that, when I agreed to do a massive open online course (MOOC) for corpus linguistics, I would be crowd-sourcing word meanings from thousands of enthusiastic students in places as far-flung as the British Antarctic Territory and the Pitcairn Islands, I doubt I would have believed it. But that is precisely what happened recently on the course I am running on the FutureLearn platform. Two weeks ago thousands of students checked their intuitions about the meaning of words against corpus evidence and were just as surprised by the results as the lexicographers in pioneering corpus-based dictionary building projects were thirty years ago. The students’ intuitions were typically pretty similar, and the points that the data gave them were, fairly uniformly, surprising to them. The interest – and surprise – for the students was immediate and a joy to behold. In the following week we crowd-sourced analyses of stories about refugees and asylum seekers from around the world. When comparing their results to those presented to them from a corpus-based study I had done, in which the British press represented these groups negatively, an interesting result came in. Many of the negative representations you can see in the British press are present in whole or part in the press around the world. That includes non-English-language news reporting too.

In teaching corpus linguistics to classes over the years I have always stood by a simple truth – when you explore data with students, while you have the capacity to surprise them with what you have found in a corpus, students are also empowered to do just the same to you. With a MOOC the same is true, but the scale shifts. I can surprise and inform thousands of students with insights into the role corpora have to play in lexicography and how partial intuited meanings can be. At the same time, they can turn around and, almost with one voice, tell me that what I thought was true of the language of British newspapers is true in many contexts and many languages worldwide. The scale of such an endeavour is breathtaking. We have been running training classes, free of charge, in corpus linguistics at Lancaster University each year for some time now. In the first week of the MOOC we had taught as many students in one week as we would have if we ran our summer school for 100 years. In terms of getting the idea of the corpus approach to language ‘out there’ our MOOC has been a massive success – and the students like it, which, I must concede is a relief! So much effort and thought went into it that it is really gratifying to see so many people get so much out of it.

Are MOOCs the future of education? Well, in my opinion, yes and no. Yes – we must use them. For some students this is their best shot at getting some instruction from people who are too far away and too expensive to access for face-to-face education. For others, it is a way of dipping their toe in the water – they can find out the rudiments of a subject to see if they want to invest more time in studying it. But then also no – MOOCs must live with, and complement, face-to-face teaching, in my view. The responsiveness and immediacy of face-to-face teaching cannot be readily provided via a MOOC. If nothing else, the scale of the enterprise defies any credible and sustained attempt at building a rapport with individual students, which is, in my experience, a key motivator for students and staff alike. As we move forward we must blend MOOC and face-to-face education, to the benefit of all. Anyway – I must stop writing now. I have to prepare for the next crowd-sourced bit of research the students will do: looking at the ways in which people in different parts of the world talk about disabled people. I am bound to find out something new!
