It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Corpora and Language Teaching
Edited By: Karin Aijmer
Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 33

The articles in this edited volume represent a broad coverage of areas.
They discuss the role and effectiveness of corpora and corpus-linguistic
techniques for language teaching but also deal with broader issues such as
the relationship between corpora and second language teaching and how the
different perspectives of foreign language teachers and applied linguists
can be reconciled. A number of concrete examples are given of how authentic
corpus material can be used for different learning activities in the
classroom. It is also shown how specific learner problems for example in
the area of phraseology can be studied on the basis of learner corpora and
textbook corpora. On the basis of learner corpora of speech and writing it
is further shown that even advanced learners of English are uncertain about
stylistic and text type differences.
