Römer, Ute, Viviana Cortes and Eric Friginal 2020 Introduction: Advances in corpus-based research on academic writingAdvances in Corpus-based Research on Academic Writing: Effects of discipline, register, and writer expertise, Römer, Ute, Viviana Cortes and Eric Friginal (eds.), pp. 1–6
Chapter
With English being the global language of research, academic English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) research has gained wide recognition. While early research showcased the dynamic nature of spoken academic ELF, written academic ELF, a more recent focus of research, remains to be under-studied. However,… read more | Chapter
This article reports initial findings from a study that uses written data from second language (L2) learners of English at different proficiency levels (CEFR A1 to C1) in a large-scale investigation of verb-argument construction (VAC) emergence. The findings provide insights into first VACs in L2… read more | Article
Based on datasets of L1 Italian and Spanish learner language culled from the Trinity Lancaster Corpus Sample, this paper investigates how verb-argument constructions (VACs) develop in the spoken English of L2 learners across proficiency levels. In addition to proficiency and L1 effects, we focus on… read more | Article
O'Donnell, Matthew Brook, Ute Römer and Nick C. Ellis 2015 The development of formulaic sequences in first and second language writing: Investigating effects of frequency, association, and native normCurrent Issues in Phraseology, Hoffmann, Sebastian, Bettina Fischer-Starcke and Andrea Sand (eds.), pp. 83–108
Formulaic sequences are recognised as having important roles in language acquisition, processing, fluency, idiomaticity, and instruction. But there is little agreement over their definition and measurement, or on methods of corpus comparison. We argue that replicable research must be grounded upon… read more | Article
Römer, Ute, Matthew Brook O'Donnell and Nick C. Ellis 2015 Chapter 2. Using COBUILD grammar patterns for a large-scale analysis of verb-argument constructions: Exploring corpus data and speaker knowledgeCorpora, Grammar and Discourse: In honour of Susan Hunston, Groom, Nicholas, Maggie Charles and Suganthi John (eds.), pp. 43–72
This paper takes patterns identified in COBUILD Grammar Patterns 1: Verbs (Francis et al. 1996) as a starting point for the systematic, large-scale analysis of English verb-argument constructions (VACs), using both corpus/computational methods and psycholinguistic experiments. We work in an… read more | Article
Ellis, Nick C., Matthew Brook O'Donnell and Ute Römer 2014 Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism 4:4, pp. 405–431
We used free association tasks to investigate second language (L2) verb-argument constructions (VACs) and the ways in which their access is sensitive to statistical patterns of usage (verb type-token frequency distribution, VAC-verb contingency, verb-VAC semantic prototypicality). 131 German, 131… read more | Article
O'Donnell, Matthew Brook, Ute Römer and Nick C. Ellis 2013 The development of formulaic sequences in first and second language writing: Investigating effects of frequency, association, and native normCurrent issues in phraseology, Hoffmann, Sebastian, Bettina Fischer-Starcke and Andrea Sand (eds.), pp. 83–108
Formulaic sequences are recognised as having important roles in language acquisition, processing, fluency, idiomaticity, and instruction. But there is little agreement over their definition and measurement, or on methods of corpus comparison. We argue that replicable research must be grounded upon… read more | Article
This paper introduces the Michigan Corpus of Upper-level Student Papers (MICUSP) as a new resource that will enable researchers and teachers of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) to investigate the written discourse of highly advanced student writers whose written assignments have been awarded the… read more | Article
Starting from the observation that meaning does not primarily reside in individual words but in the phrase, this paper focuses on the examination of recurring phrases in language. It introduces a new analytical model that leads corpus researchers to a profile of the central phraseological items in… read more | Article

Miscellaneous
Römer, Ute 2009 The inseparability of lexis and grammar: Corpus linguistic perspectivesAnnual Review of Cognitive Linguistics: Volume 7, Ruiz de Mendoza Ibáñez, Francisco José (ed.), pp. 140–162
This paper focuses on the interface of lexis and grammar and provides corpus evidence for the inseparability of two areas that have traditionally been kept apart, both in language teaching and in linguistic analysis and description. The paper will first give an overview of a number of influential… read more | Article
Despite the progress that has recently been made in the field of corpus linguistics and language teaching, it is not clear what impact corpora have actually had so far on English language teaching practice. Corpus researchers often claim that corpus linguistics can make a difference for language… read more | Article
Schulze, Rainer and Ute Römer 2009 Introduction: Zooming inExploring the Lexis–Grammar Interface, Römer, Ute and Rainer Schulze (eds.), pp. 1–11
Article
Evaluation is a pervasive element in spoken and written language but its identification poses serious problems to linguistic researchers, especially when they are dealing with larger amounts of text which require the application of computer-assisted analytic techniques. This article explores ways… read more | Article
Schulze, Rainer and Ute Römer 2008 Introduction: Patterns, meaningful units and specialized discoursesPatterns, meaningful units and specialized discourses, Römer, Ute and Rainer Schulze (eds.), pp. 265–270
Article
Based on a large set of data from one of the biggest available corpora of spoken British English (the 10-million word spoken component of the BNC), this article explores central lexical-grammatical aspects of progressive forms with future time reference. Among the phenomena investigated are verb… read more | Article
