CORPORA, CONCORDANCING AND ELT
With the advancement of technology, it has become quite handy to collect
a database of texts selected from transcribed speech from real-life formal and
informal speech recordings and radio-broadcasts, not to mention written
publications, e.g. fiction and non-fiction books, newspapers, magazines,
letters, ads and brochures, that can be easily surfed via concordancers,
computer programs designed for that purpose. There are several applications for
corpora in ELT.
