CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS



TALC96 - TEACHING AND LANGUAGE CORPORA



Lancaster University, UK, 9th-12th August, 1996



INCLUDED IN THIS EMAIL:



General Details

Provisional Programme

Registration Details



AIMS OF THE CONFERENCE



While the use of computer text corpora in research is now well

established, they are now being used increasingly for teaching

purposes. This includes the use of corpus data to inform and create

teaching materials; it also includes the direct exploration of corpora

by students, both in the study of linguistics and of foreign

languages. Talc96 will build upon the success of Talc94, which brought

together researchers and teachers who are involved in such work, to

take part in an international exchange of current experience and

expertise.



THEMES



KEY THEME: Talc96 will have a special focus on evaluating the claims

made for corpora in linguistics and language teaching.



OTHER THEMES: which the conference is expected to cover include -



1.) The use of corpora in student led learning and investigation.

2.) Software for corpus based language and linguistics learning.

3.) Developing corpora for teaching purposes.

4.) The exploitation of corpus based teaching and learning materials.

5.) The theory and practice of corpus based teaching and learning.



Papers presented at the conference will be of the typical 20 minutes

talk plus ten minutes of questions format.





WORKSHOPS



Talc96 will also host several workshops related to teaching and

language corpora. To give an example of what those workshops may be,

Talc94 had a variety of workshops such as "Multilingual Corpus

Building" and "Concordancing and Corpus Retrieval". Workshops will be

of one to two hour duration.
