Selected Proceedings of the Fifth Using Corpora in Contrastive and Translation Studies Conference
Sylviane Granger, Marie-Aude Lefer
This study seeks to contribute to a better understanding of how syntactic variation is affected by probabilistic factors in English as a foreign language (EFL, L2), exemplified by the effect of weight on the syntactic variation with English transitive verb-particle constructions and transitive verb-prepositional phrase (PP) constructions.
A Triangulated Learner-corpus and Experimental Study of Weight Effects
Since the release of the first and second editions in 2002 and 2009 respectively, the International Corpus of Learner English (ICLE) has been used in a wide range of research projects internationally, served as the basis for many MA and PhD theses and generally played a key role in promoting the field of learner corpus research.

Since its beginnings in the late 1980s, the field of Learner Corpus Research (LCR) has been continuously evolving and thereby widening its scope. LCR is rapidly closing gaps within its original scope by expanding on the languages, language mediums (spoken vs written) and learner types covered, and it is turning its attention to...
Selected Papers from the Fourth Learner Corpus Research Conference
Andrea Abel, Aivars Glaznieks
"Sparks and Lustrous Words" is a free adaptation of a phrase from Shakespeare's All’s Well That Ends Well. Sparks come from nowhere; they are suddenly there to dispel the darkness and ignite a flame, bringing illumination, Shakespearean insight, Biblical inspiration, warmth and passion...
Literary Walks, Cultural Pilgrimages – Essays in Honour of Guido Latré
Paul Arblaster, Ingrid Bertrand
Fluency and disfluency are characteristic of online language production and may be signalled by markers such as filled and unfilled pauses, discourse markers, repeats or self-repairs, which can be said to reflect ongoing mechanisms of processing and monitoring. The Fluency & Disfluency across Languages and Language Varieties conference...
Liesbeth Degand, Gaëtanelle Gilquin
The field of lexicography is undergoing a major revolution. The rapid replacement of the traditional paper dictionary by electronic dictionaries opens up exciting possibilities but also constitutes a major challenge to the...
Proceedings of eLex 2009, Louvain-la-Neuve, 22-24 October 2009
Sylviane Granger, Magali Paquot
Learner Corpus Research (LCR) is a vibrant discipline, which combines methodological rigour in the analysis of authentic learner data with a focus on practical pedagogical application. Following conferences in Louvain and Bergen, the third LCR conference, hosted by Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands, illustrated how LCR has matured.
Progression and Variation
Pieter De Haan, Rina De Vries
Dieses kontrastive Wörterbuch richtet sich an Deutschsprachige, die die englische Sprache schon einigermaßen beherrschen, aber ihren Wortschatz noch erweitern wollen.
This volume is a comprehensive corpus-based study of how learners of English (specifically French and Chinese) use the modal verbs may and can. It presents insightful data valuable to researchers whose main interests include: modality, learner corpus research, applied approaches to construction grammar and corpus-based cognitive linguistics.
Exploring may and can across Learner Corpora
This volume is a corpus study of the construct of accuracy by learners of English as a Foreign Language based on the International Corpus of Learner English. It offers valuable information about the development of more than forty error types in a wide variety of domains such as grammar, lexis, lexico-grammar, spelling and punctuation.
A Learner Corpus Approach
Children as young as 2 years old use modal verbs rather frequently in their spontaneous speech. But do these early modal verbs already have the same semantic, morphological, and syntactic characteristics as in adult speech? I answer this questions through the investigation of corpus data.
