This book takes stock of current research into computer learner corpora conducted both by ELT and SLA specialists. It should be of particular interest to researchers looking to assess its relevance to SLA theory and ELT practice. Throughout the volume, emphasis is also placed on practical, methodological aspects of computer learner corpus research, in particular the contribution of technology to the research process. The advantages and disadvantages of automated and semi-automated approaches are analyzed, the capabilities of linguistic software tools investigated, the corpora (and compilation processes) described in detail. In this way, an important function of the volume is to give practical insight to researchers who may be considering compiling a corpus of learner data or embarking on learner corpus research.

The volume is divided into three main sections:

  • Section 1 gives a general overview of learner corpus research;
  • Section 2 illustrates a range of corpus-based approaches to interlanguage analysis;
  • Section 3 demonstrates the direct pedagogical relevance of learner corpus work.

“A great virtue of this volume is that the corpus is treated as a tool, and the tool does not distract from the job at hand. The focus is where it should be -- on features of native language, interlanguage, and target language as elucidated by corpus based study. The corpora stand in the background, ready to serve. This valuable anthology avoids the risk of being outmoded that awaits any book about corpus-related language research. The language points are solid in their own right and will remain so even after the software and databases used in their investigation start to seem quaint. Granger’s is a major voice in corpus-related SLA research. The authors have compiled a great collection.”
“This book is a significant contribution to learner corpus research, the new area of linguistic inquiry that emerged as an important link between two previously disparate fields of corpus linguistics and foreign/second language research.”
