The Learner Corpus Association (LCA)

Posted: October 31, 2013 in LCA, learner corpus

The Learner Corpus Association (LCA) aims to provide a forum for exchanging ideas on learner corpus research from an interdisciplinary perspective:

– Second language acquisition
– Foreign language teaching (including CALL)
– Language testing
– NLP applications (automated scoring, L1 identification, error detection and correction, etc.)
– other language-related fields

 The association was officially launched at the second Learner Corpus Research conference which took place in Bergen (Norway) on 27-29 September, 2013.

The LCA maintains a dedicated website http://www.learnercorpusassociation.org/ and initiates a bi-yearly conference.

Registered members will have access to the members-only sections of the website which will contain a range of resources, including shared corpora, publications and corpus tools and a regularly updated searchable learner corpus bibliography. They will also be able to take part in forums focused on a range of topics (learner corpus design, annotation, methodology, applications, etc.) and benefit from discounts, notably from publishers, negotiated by the LCA.
