(BAAL Corpus Linguistics SIG event 2017)
- Date: Friday 31 March 2017
- Venue: The Lindisfarne Centre, St Aidan’s College, Durham University
- Keynote speaker: Hilary Nesi, Coventry University
This symposium aims to bring together EAP practitioners who are using (or interested in using) corpora in their teaching. The keynote speaker is Professor Hilary Nesi who led the BASE (British Academic Spoken English) and BAWE (British Academic Written English) corpora projects. Members of the Durham University FOCUS corpus team will also be presenting findings from the latest phase of the “Write on the Edge” project, using corpus data to help students to write in unfamiliar genres. We welcome other talks on any aspect of using corpora in EAP, and hope that the event will be of interest and benefit to all EAP practitioners.
Abstracts (ca. 250 words) are being accepted for 20 minute paper presentations on any aspect relating to the symposium theme.
Please send abstracts by 10 February 2017 to Megan Bruce firstname.lastname@example.org, stating your name, contact details and any technical requirements.
