Learner Corpus based approaches to Second Language Acquisition

The Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS will be hosting a two-day workshop on ‘Learner corpus based approaches to second language acquisition’ on 31 March – 1 April, 2017. 

“Second language researchers have been rather slow in taking advantage of learner corpora and their associated computerised methodologies (…), and LCR (Learner Corpus Research) is not always fully informed by SLA research, making collaboration between the two fields sometimes more of a wish rather than a reality”. (Myles, 2015)
