means to explore actual patterns of language use and as a tool fordeveloping materials for classroom language instruction. Corpuslinguistics provides an extremely powerful tool for the analysis ofnatural language and can provide tremendous insights as to howlanguage use varies in different situations, such as spoken versuswritten or formal interactions versus casual conversation.
refers to a large principled collection of natural texts. The process of creatingwritten transcripts of spoken language can be quite time – consuming,involving a series of choices based on research interests of the corpuscompilers. There are a number of existing corpora that are valuable resourcesfor investigating types of language questions. Some well known: BNC, LOB,ETC. The linguistic features or research questions being investigated will shapethe collection of texts used in creating the corpus.
.There are many types of corpora as there are researchtopics in linguistics General corpora Specializedcorpora Learners corpus
When creating a corpus , data collection involves obtaining orcreating electronic versions of the target texts. Written data arefar less labor than spoken corpora. The data collection phase ofbuilding a spoken corpus is lengthy and expensive. Most spokencorpora use orthographic transcription system that does notattempt to capture prosodic details or phonetic variation.
Analyses can explore individual lexical or linguisticfeatures across texts or identify clusters of features hatcharacterize particular registers.
Teachers and material writers can have a basis forselecting the material that is presented and for thatclaims that are being made for linguistics features.
It can be brought by two ways. First teachers can shapeinstruction based on corpus based information, theother way is by having learners interact with corpora.
