Description - Academic Writing with Corpora: A Resource Book for Data-Driven Learning by Tatyana Karpenko-Seccombe

Academic Writing with Corpora offers a step-by-step accessible guide to using concordancers and aims to help introduce data-driven learning into the academic English classroom. Addressing the challenges faced by EAP teachers when explaining to their students how to write 'naturally', this book provides a solution to the problem by placing an emphasis on learning from expert and proficient writing. In doing so, it:

  • takes a highly practical approach;
  • uses Lextutor, an easy-to-use, open access concordancer, whilst introducing students to tools, such as SkELL, MICUSP and BNC-English Corpora;
  • fosters autonomous learning by demonstrating how to solve everyday difficulties in word choice and grammar;
  • helps teachers to use corpora in teaching proficient writing and helps students to improve their academic writing by learning from the best examples in their field;
  • guides students towards better awareness of the communicative side of academic writing.

This book forms essential reading for all students on academic writing and EAP courses or who wish to improve their writing.
