Corpora and Language Learners

The book edited by Guy Aston, Silvia Bernardini and Dominic Stewart looks back over ten years of TaLC (Teaching and Language Corpora). It dates back to 2004, and therefore does not include the latest TaLC conferences. It is however particularly useful for students and teachers looking for a better understanding of corpora by, for and with learners.
The introduction to “Learning with corpora” by Guy Aston is also worth reading, since it draws an overview on the topic, and explores how corpora may increase the chances of incidental (serendipity) and autonomous learning.
