Title : Corpus-based Web Tools: How Can They Be Manipulated for Study in Language Patterns
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

The introduction of Internet and the emergence of available web resources have facilitated endless efforts by language teachers to do research in language patterns. Web resources in general and corpus tools in particular have enabled large samples of language to be explored for better insights into the nature of language in use in all its forms and its uses. While corpora are generally inclined to the work of lexicographers whose job is to inform dictionaries or grammar books, arguments may have arisen around why such end-users as language teachers and learners cannot make use of these innovative tools. This paper adds to this on-going debate by discussing approaches to using corpora as a reference point for language teaching and research. It shows potentials of manipulating common data-driven web tools for research in language patterns and explores some pathways for language teachers to explore aspects of language in use through authentic texts. Results revealed from corpus search via COCA and BNC and generalizations made from the manipulated data - grammatical metaphor in this case - can further showcase the inexhaustible implications of using web resources for enhanced language teaching and research.
