The Routledge Handbook of Corpora and English Language Teaching and Learning provides a wide-ranging and authoritative overview of the latest developments and innovations in how corpus approaches, corpus technologies, and corpus data can inform and transform English language teaching and learning.

Featuring a broad range of international experts, the Handbook presents state-of-the-art scholarship and inspires new avenues for research focusing on six key areas:

  • English language teaching and learning informed by language corpora;
  • corpora in syllabus and materials design;
  • corpora and English for specific and academic purposes;
  • learner corpora for English language teaching;
  • data-driven learning; and
  • corpora and corpus tools for language teaching.

Unique to this pioneering volume, the authors cover key areas at the cross-roads of corpus research and English language teaching by drawing on cutting-edge corpus applications, methods, and pedagogical approaches, hence, bridging the research–practice gap in the field.

This Handbook is a collection of novel contributions offering essential reading for those researching and studying English language teaching and learning through the application of corpus approaches.
