How are the words rotate and revolve used? Have a think, then read this description. Now using COCA-BYU let’s see if the description is supported and whether we can add anything to the picture painted by the Grammarist.

A nice example of how to use the COCA data base and corpus tools to support intuitions or assertions about actual use of similar words (rotate/revolve).  For advanced learners or teachers.

Nice post on using corpora for ELT without being a corpus linguist or a tech whiz.

Stanislav Okhvat's curator insight, April 13, 2013 12:09 AM

A nice introduction to corpora and concordance tools and how they are useful in teaching languages and, by extension, translation.

Corpus-aided language learning

Numerous corpus linguists (for example Gavioli and Aston 2001) have pointed out that learning activities centred on analysing corpus data are consistent with current principles of language-learning theory, that is students develop more autonomy when they receive guidance about how to observe language and make generalizations.

This is a very thorough module on using corpus linguistics in the classroom.  It is about 50 pages worth of materials. A great introduction or review of the uses of corpora, resources and related research.

Superbly brilliant !! 

Shona Whyte's curator insight, May 5, 2013 11:06 AM

Undated module on Graham Davies' legacy website (most recent reference 2011, the majority from the 1990s).  The authors recommend printing and reading the 50+ pages of information, then come back to the webpage to use the links to complete the activities.

The word lists can be found elsewhere but the highlighter tools and gap-fill maker are unique tools from Nottingham.
