Corpora and language teaching

Dr. Costas Gabrielatos, Senior Research Associate, University Centre for Computer Corpus Research on Language (UCREL).

This talk addresses the roles which can be taken by corpora and corpus-based research in teaching language. It will compare traditional approaches to teaching about language, drawing on intuition, rules and exceptions, and a prescriptive approach, with the approach which can be taken by drawing on corpus based research: identifying patterns and probabilities in attested language use, from a descriptive rather than a prescriptive perspective. It will explore ways in which corpora can be drawn on in pedagogical materials and used in the classroom.

Yet pragmatic aspects of language are particularly difficult to explore systematically. The Pragmatics Profile of Everyday Communication Skills helps practitioners gain an insight into how an individual typically communicates in day to day interaction in familiar settings with people he or she knows well.
