Corpus-based language teaching and learning: applications and implications

The great advances in corpus building and tools in recent years are yet to be matched by the actual use of corpora in language teaching. The last decade has seen a surge in corpus-based teaching approaches in second/foreign language classrooms, as teachers around the world realize the importance of authentic data in their classrooms. However, the move to a more corpus-conscious approach is not an easy task, especially for less common or resource-poor languages. The potential applications of corpora in language teaching are numerous, whether by using specific corpus-based tasks in the classroom or by developing corpus-informed teaching materials.

This special issue will aim to present a panoramic view of the latest trends in the corpus-based teaching approach and how they are shaping the language classroom. Research related to under-represented languages is especially welcome.
The themes of this special issue include, but are not limited to:
- Using corpora for the teaching of vocabulary and grammar.
- Using corpora for improving writing skills.
- The impact of corpora on designing curricula and/or syllabi
- Corpus-based language textbooks
- Written vs spoken corpora in teaching
- Experimental research on using corpora in language teaching

To express interest, submit an abstract by September 15, 2018.
