Corpus-aided language pedagogy is one of the central application areas of corpus methodologies, and a test bed for theories of language and learning. This volume provides an overview of current trends, offering methodological and theoretical position statements along with results from empirical studies. The relationship between corpora and learning is examined from complementary perspectives — the study of learner language, the didactic use of corpus findings, and the interaction between corpora and their users. Reflections on current theory and technology open and close the volume.

With its focus on the learner and the learning setting, Corpora and Language Learners is addressed to corpus linguists with an interest in learner language, applied linguists wishing to expand their understanding of corpora and their pedagogic potential, and language teachers wishing to critically assess the relevance of work in this field.

This volume grew out of selected presentations at the 5th Teaching and Language Corpora conference in Bertinoro, Italy.

Table of Contents
“For anyone interested in finding out about the present state of the art of research in the rapidly evolving field of teaching language and linguistics using corpora, this volume provides a broad overview covering many different areas of research and topics that are being addressed.”
“Aston et al's 2004 collection will be a valuable resource for teachers seeking working and prospective solutions, as well as up-to-date theoretical motivations, for corpus-informed teaching practice.”
“This volume is a nice addition to the Benjamins series Studies in Corpus Linguistics. For anyone interested in corpora and issues related to using corpora in the language classroom, this book covers a range of topics from a variety of perspectives. The topics covered and the number of chapters that address actual classroom use of corpora reflect the increased interest in corpora as an area of relevance for language instructors.”
