- 講演題目：What we L2 learners can learn from corpora: Focusing on English NP structures
- 講演概要：Many researchers have proved that corpora can serve as a vehicle to better understanding of language and even help us learn a foreign language. In particular, corpora allow L2 learners to experience the real world of language use and offer us ways to develop hands-on learning activities with naturally occurring data. In this talk, we will see how we non-native speakers can explore English using online corpora such as BNC (British National Corpus) and COCA (Corpus of Contemporary American English). In so doing, we will look into a variety of English NP structures focusing on partitive (e.g., some of the beans) and measure noun phrases (e.g, a pound of beans). By experiencing `authentic texts', we L2 learners will see how complex English NP structures work and how they are used.
- 講師紹介：Dr. Jong-Bok Kim is Professor of School of English in Kyung Hee
University at Seoul. He received his Ph.D. in Linguistics from Stanford University in 1996 and has been working on syntax, semantics, and computational linguistics for Korean and English. His current research topics include comparative constructions in English and Korean, inversion phenomena in English, complex predicates in Korean, cleft constructions, focus projections in English and Korean, just to name a few. In addition to publishing numerous papers in prestigious domestic and international journals, he is the co-author of the textbook ``English syntax: an introduction" (CSLI Publications), which is now worldwide used as
an undergraduate and graduate textbook. Since 2003, he has also turned his attention to computational implementation too and developed a computationally feasible grammar for Korean, Korean Resource Grammar.
