ABSTRACTS

The importance of corpus-based materials

We increasingly hear about 'corpus-based' materials. What does this really mean? Why are they better? This talk will illustrate what we can find out from a corpus about grammar and vocabulary. It will show how this can improve materials for our learners. Examples will also be given of what a corpus can tell us about how we use vocabulary and grammar differently in different contexts (e.g. in business, education, media, law, tourism etc.) and how corpora are essential in materials design in this area.

 

Making sense of words: the English Profile wordlist project

English Profile is a collaborative project involving both Cambridge ESOL and Cambridge University Press in the development of language descriptors for the CEFR.
Part of this project has sponsored research into A1-B2 vocabulary: the English Profile Wordlists provide reliable information at word and sense level, based on extensive corpus
analysis and other relevant source.
The speaker will explain the research and compiling methods used and consider areas such as affixation, phrases and collocation, and polysemous words. What does it actually mean to 'know a word'? Vocabulary acquisition is a cumulative process and reliable information on frequency and usefulness helps to establish priorities for teachers and students.

 

Using a corpus to design grammar materials

This talk will give practical insights into how a corpus is actually used to design grammar materials. It will explore some of the dilemmas that face us as corpus-based materials writers. We will consider the different grammar patterns that we find in spoken versus written grammar. We will look at examples of typical
learner grammar patterns. The link between vocabulary and grammar will also be examined using examples from the corpus.

 

Words that really matter: improving written performance by effective use of vocabulary

In this practical session, the speaker will focus on some key words and phrases at B1 and B2 levels, drawn from her English Profile Wordlists research.
Using Italian candidate data from the Cambridge Learner Corpus, she will illustrate how effective use of vocabulary can produce better written work and improve exam performance.
