Centre for English Corpus Linguistics The Centre for English Corpus Linguistics (CECL) specializes in the collection and use of corpora for linguistic and pedagogical purposes. Its main areas of focus are learner and multilingual corpora. At the end of the 1980s, the CECL pioneered the study of learner corpora with the International Corpus of Learner English (ICLE). A truly international enterprise, ICLE contributed to the integration of corpora in language acquisition studies and to their use in various applications ranging from language teaching to natural language processing. The CECL has always been keen to link theoretical notions, whether from cognitive linguistics, psycholinguistics or contrastive linguistics, to their pedagogical applications.

French English Dictionary Lexipedia - Where words have meaning Using the Academic Word List Introduction This site will help you expand your academic vocabulary using the Academic Word List (the AWL). All students, home students and overseas students, need to learn the technical vocabulary of their field. As learners of English preparing for academic study you also need to learn general academic vocabulary, words such as: feature, illustrate, regulate, strategy. Of course the basic vocabulary of English is also important for academic learners. How can you use the AWL? You can try learning some words from the list every day, but it is better to study the words in context, so that you understand how they are used. Data was collected by the International Labour Office on hourly rates of pay in fifty different occupations, and on consumer prices for a sample of household items in about 100 countries. You can use the AWL Gapmaker to create tests for yourself. Background The AWL was created by Averil Coxhead in New Zealand. return to the top of the page
