Dear Professor Granger, It is so good to see your project is growing into a new dimension. Congratulation!

I just want to communicate to you that we are still interested in the "ICLE" corpus and wonder if there is a way we can continue our conversation and see if we can help each other in our respective projects. If you are interested, I'd suggest that we can have a phone call to restart our conversation in this matter. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

The LONGDALE project - LONGitudinal DAtabase of Learner English Dear all,

The Centre for English Corpus Linguistics of the University of Louvain (Belgium) is launching a new international learner corpus initiative, the LONGDALE project. The aim of the project is to build a large longitudinal database of learner English containing data from learners from a wide range of mother tongue backgrounds.The term 'database' rather than 'corpus' is used here as our aim is to collect a wide range of data types, from fairly uncontrolled data such as argumentative essays, narratives or informal interviews to more guided types in the form of summaries or picture descriptions.

If you are interested in joining this new venture and contributing to LONGDALE, do get in touch with me or one of the LONGDALE team members.


Best regards,

Sylviane Granger
