Spanish learner corpus research
Achievements and challenges
This chapter presents a state-of-the-art overview of Spanish learner corpus research (SLCR). It starts by emphasizing the uniqueness of a monograph focusing on research dealing with learners of a language other than English. The next section is concerned with the status of Spanish as a foreign language in the world, and as a pluricentric language made up of a set of American and Spanish varieties. After that, the main features of learner corpus design and analysis in SLCR are reviewed. Besides of providing an overview of the main Spanish learner corpora, this chapter directs attention towards some of the challenges that this field of research will have to face. The last section briefly reviews the contributions to this volume.
