Meeting Description:

The Institute for Language and Speech Processing / 'Athena' Research Centre is hosting a colloquium on 'Learner Corpora for less commonly taught languages: Design, processing and prospects for Second Language Acquisition and Education' on Tuesday, April 8, 2014 in the framework of the LangTERRA project. Learner corpora have been established as a valuable instrument for detecting patterns of language development, serving, thus, as a basis for empirical research and educational interventions. The primary goal of the colloquium is to examine and reflect on concepts, principles and perspectives of Learner Corpus research and applications. The colloquium focuses on less commonly taught languages and seeks to explore best practices and lessons drawn from research in widely spoken languages, such as English. Recent advances will be presented by invited speakers, leading figures in the field of Learner Corpus research: Prof. Sylviane Granger, The Centre for English Corpus Linguistics, Université catholique de Louvain Prof. Detmar Meurers, Department of Linguistics, University of Tübingen Prof. Kari Tenfjord, Department of Linguistics, University of Bergen Dr. Jirka Hana, Institute of Formal and Applied Linguistics, Charles University Prague
