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.
Shona Whyte's insight:

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.

Mike McCarthy on spoken grammar | Hancock McDonald ELT

Mike McCarthy on spoken grammar | Hancock McDonald ELT | TELT | Scoop.it

Mike McCarthy gave the opening plenary at English UK Academic (North) conference last Saturday (Oct 4 2014), revisiting the topic of the grammar of spoken English. Spoken language, he pointed out, is in no way an imperfect, poorly realized version of the written form. Quite to the contrary, the written form is an imperfect attempt at abstracting from the actual, living, functioning reality of the spoken form.

VOICE - ELF sound archive

VOICE - ELF sound archive | TELT | Scoop.it

In the early 21st century, English in the world finds itself in an “unstable equilibrium”: On the one hand, the majority of the world's English users are not native speakers of the language, but use it as an additional language, as a convenient means for communicative interactions that cannot be conducted in their mother tongues. On the other hand, linguistic descriptions have as yet predominantly been focusing on English as it is spoken and written by its native speakers.

 

VOICE seeks to redress the balance by providing a sizeable, computer-readable corpus of English as it is spoken by this non-native speaking majority of users in different contexts. These speakers use English successfully on a daily basis all over the world, in their personal, professional or academic lives. We therefore see them primarily not as language learners but as language users in their own right. It is therefore clearly worth finding out just how they use the language. This is exactly what VOICE seeks to make possible.

 

The VOICE project as such ran from 2005 to 2013, see News

nicolaperry's curator insight, January 12, 2014 6:29 AM

Too many learners still think they have to aim for native speaker models. Too many teachers are not aware that the standard English they teach is not the only acceptable English. These recordings were collected as part of a major research project into International English / English as a Lingua Franca (ELF).

Exploration de corpus : outils et pratiques

Exploration de corpus : outils et pratiques | TELT | Scoop.it

Le groupe de travail Exploration de corpus, du consortium corpus écrits, vise à proposer une synthèse descriptive des usages d’exploitation de corpus les plus répandus dans la communauté francophone. Chacune des pratiques recensées sera précisément documentée et articulée à trois entrées :

le type de corpus d’étude ;l’objectif de recherche escompté, qu’il soit descriptif ou applicatif ;les outils de traitement de corpus mobilisés pour s’acquitter de cette tâche, en distinguant entre outils disponibles et outils propriétaires, outils de traitement quantitatif vs qualitatif, etc., suivant les pratiques qui seront mises au jour grâce aux réflexions et aux échanges des participants.Ce travail de synthèse et de recensement de l’existant permettra aux linguistes et plus généralement, aux chercheurs intéressés par un travail sur corpus d’orienter leurs pratiques et leurs choix techniques relativement à leurs objectifs de recherche. Il aidera la communauté à s’orienter parmi l’offre disponible, ce qui n’est pas toujours simple à l’heure actuelle, tout en faisant découvrir d’autres pratiques et d’autres outils plus méconnus.

Go and ask a native speaker (not): Hana Ticha

Go and ask a native speaker (not): Hana Ticha | TELT | Scoop.it
Shona Whyte's insight:

Key quote for me: "Although nowadays it's not fashionable to draw a distinction between native speakers (NSs) and non-native speakers (NNSs) in the field of ELT, people do so anyway. The NS will always be the ultimate stop, the god in possession of all the knowledge we turn to for help if we are lost and helpless. […] I'm not trying to imply that we should avoid consulting native speakers. […] But isn't it us, NNSs, who also contribute to the NSs' aura of exceptionality? Many Czech students (and their parents) still feel that it's better to have a NS teacher of English because they believe they know more. And we, invariably, support this conviction by giving up and asking for evidence served on a silver plate, instead of trying to look for answers ourselves."
