Investigation of the characteristics of spoken learner language has increased in recent years but has been primarily limited to the investigation of one linguistic level (e.g., lexico-grammar), which gives a limited picture of learners’ overall linguistic competence (e.g., Skarnitzl & Rumlová, 2019 ). In this study, we investigate lexico-grammar, f...
The analysis of spoken language has always had to address two main issues: the tedious method of extracting variables and researchers' potential subjectivity when analyzing the data. The use of digital tools/software programs afford partial automatization of processes and the potential for increased objectivity. While these tools have improved anal...
Investigations of the link between the perception and production of prosody by language learners can inform theories of prosody perception and production, especially with regard to Second Language Acquisition (SLA), and for the implementation of prosody in Foreign Language Teaching (FLT). The perception and production of prosody in L2 speech are of...
In this paper, we introduce the language-pedagogic potential of the Corpus of Product Information (CoPI). The corpus is XML-annotated and contains about 100,000 words of product descriptions of health products, cleaning supplies and products for beauty and personal care, divided into three textual moves: (1) overview, (2) directions and (3) warning...
Previous research suggests that intonation is a particularly challenging aspect of L2 speech learning. While most research focuses on speech production, we widen the focus and study the perception of intonation by L2 learners. We investigate whether advanced German learners of English have knowledge of the appropriate English intonation patterns in...
