I am pursuing a PhD in applied corpus linguistics where I am studying the writing in English produced by Romanian undergraduate students, with emphasis on novices’ use of academic formulaic expressions.
The chapter aims at providing an overview of the modalities in which linguistic corpora have been integrated in writing related approaches and technologies. The history of corpus linguistics is almost one century old, demonstrating a wide range of applications and interdisciplinary research potential. In this study, two main directions have been id...
This paper presents the methodology and data used for the automatic extraction of the Romanian Academic Word List (Ro-AWL). Academic Word Lists are useful in both L2 and L1 teaching contexts. For the Romanian language, no such resource exists so far. Ro-AWL has been generated by combining methods from corpus and computational linguistics with L2 ac...
Internationalisation is a desired goal for contemporary universities, which are increasingly using concepts like cultural diversity or globalism as selling points to attract students. However, these concepts are not always clearly defined in terms of underlying values and lived experience. We used a corpus linguistics approach to extract university...
In the field of English for Specific Purposes (ESP), as in any other type of interlanguage, phraseology contributes significantly to successful academic writing (Biber and Barbieri 2007). For particular learner varieties, such as Romanian English, few studies have examined formulaic sequences (Hyland 2008), mainly focusing on lexico-grammatical pat...
The aim of this chapter is to determine whether corpora can be used to teach specialized academic language in a similar way for L1 and L2 target groups. We conducted an experimental study where we compare the results of the same corpus teaching intervention in L1 (Romanian) and L2 (English for Specific Academic Purposes) courses at the West Univers...
