Towards One Thousand Constructions: rethinking the learner's understanding of lexis and grammar

Professor Susan Hunston is giving a plenary talk at this year’s Teaching and Language Corpora Conference (TaLC), which will take place on 18-21 July 2018 at the University of Cambridge.

The title of her talk will be ‘Towards One Thousand Constructions: rethinking the learner’s understanding of lexis and grammar’.

TaLC offers an engaging platform for researchers, teachers, practitioners and software developers to share their ideas on how corpus resources and tools for analysis can be useful in/for language teaching, language learning and language education.

The conference aims to promote classroom applications of language corpora, data-driven learning, as well as the creation of corpus-informed teaching materials and other resources, and foster discussion between practitioners, researchers and theorists from all over the world.
