From corpus findings to applications

  • vocabulary appraoches-
  • phraseology
  • functional approaches
  • move structure analysis
  • genre-based approaches

Vocabulary approaches

  • core academic vocabulary?
    • Coxhead
    • Paquot パクー (2010): productive vocabulary list
  • discipline-specific (Hyland)
    • medical research
    • engineering textbook
      • technical and non-technical uses in specialist context
  • Keywords
  • statistical measures may be different
  • Generalizability of the results
  • Hybrid n-gram
  • Wible's software (Saturday morning workshop)
  • Pattern grammar
    • for V-ing structures
      • ADJ/N/V for V-ing
  • Noun phrases
    • "compressed" with phrasal modifiers embedded in noun phrases (Biber & Gray 2010:2)
  • Triangulated study (Ellis et al. 2008)
    • frequency counts + pedagogica relevance + psycholinguistic salience

Functional approaches

  • lexical bundles
    • Biber (2004), Cortes (2004), Hyland (2008)
  • Hyland (2008)
    • research-oriented
    • text-oriented
    • participant-oriented
      • Hyland's list is too sophisticated for beginning & intermediate learners
  • comments: Her argument about lexical bundles here is not really related to functions

Corpus-Driven Learning

  • Familiarise
    • e.g. issues
      • subject area: economic use
  • Functional approaches: bottomo-up
    • while

Genre-based approaches

  • Swalesian tradition
    • Problem-Question genre (Bhatia et al. 2004)
    • Legal essay genre (Weber 2001)
      • Conventionalized text types, where move analysis is easy to conduct
  • Legal English
    • concordancing: Assuming, assumption/ consider. considering, consideration
  • Psychology RAs (Bianchi & Pazzaglia 2007)
    • Students first subdivided article into moves intuitively
    • Follow-up data-driven lexico-grammar tasks
  • Computer Science RAs (Chang & Kuo 2011)
  • Cross-disciplinary move schema for RA method sections, 32 disciplines (Cotos et al. 2012)
  • Hong Kong PolyU Corpus of Research Articles 39 disciplines (Lin & Evans, in press 2012)
    • Good resource for thesis writing (5 million words)
  • e.g. "surprising"
    • "NOT surprising" often associated with negative form
    • "NOT surprising, given that ..." quite fixed lexical grammar patterns

SLA research

  • Noticing --> inductive approach
    • Teacher-directed "noticing" activities (Boulton 2011)
    • Not many empirical research
  • Vygotskyan sociocultural theories
    • interaction with peers
  • Report writing module (Flowerdew 2008)
