  3. 3. 1. What is Concordance<br /><ul><li>a piece of software, either installed on a computer or accessed through a website
  4. 4. can be used to search, access and analyze language from a corpus.
  5. 5. useful in exploring the relationships between words
  6. 6. give us very accurate information about the way language is authentically used</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>typical concordancersallows us to enter a word or phrase search for multiple examples of how that word or phrase is used
  7. 7. more complex concordancerscan extract examples from very particular contexts and even discriminate between spoken or written language use.</li></li></ul><li>2. Scope of the Field<br />Language teaching and learning<br />Literary works<br />Corpus linguistics<br />Content analysis in many disciplines including accountancy, history, marketing, musicology, politics, geography, and media studies<br />
  8. 8. 3. Corpus Used in the Field<br /><ul><li>corpus  is a large and structured set of texts (now usually electronically stored and processed)
  9. 9. Religious text; Quran, Bible
  10. 10. Literary works; e-book, novel, epic poem</li></li></ul><li>4. Using Concordancer in L&T process<br /><ul><li>Exploring collocations. 
  11. 11. Learning new word -enter those words- find and record other words which are commonly used.
  12. 12. Looking at their own errors. 
  13. 13. make collocation errors- put the root word into the concordancer-can discover what the error is for themselves.
  14. 14. Understanding different uses / meanings. 
  15. 15. learning words which have multiple meanings- collect example sentences from a corpus - group the sentences according to their meaning.
  16. 16. Finding genuine examples. 
  17. 17. some new words or phrases- use the concordancerto find and record our own examples of the words being used</li></li></ul><li>5. Brief Summaries of Articles<br />
  18. 18. 6. Some Possible Problems<br /><ul><li>Majority of corpora are based on authentic language use - far too challenging for lower level students.
  19. 19. Not all concordancerinterfaces are user-friendly and some can be very complex for students to use- often uses quite complex linguistic terminology.
  20. 20. simple alternative is to use any normal search engine and type in the word you are interested in.
  21. 21. Not all teachers and students have access to the Internet during class.</li></li></ul><li>7. Conclusion<br /><ul><li>Often seem challenging to both teachers and students.
  22. 22. Incorporating concordancers into L&T process may take time and effort.
  23. 23.  Ultimately can be an incredibly useful tool for L&T process.</li></li></ul><li>Thank You <br />
