Title: Combining knowledge-based and corpus-based word list information in language pedagogy
Abstract: Corpus-based word lists are often used to provide information about the real-world usefulness of lexical forms for second-language learners. Knowledge-based word lists, in contrast, rank words according to what learners are likely to know or not know, which is germane to text readability estimation. A strategic approach to lexical pedagogy should select the most useful target forms that the learners don’t already know. This session will provide an introduction to and a practical workshop on 1) text-difficulty estimation using knowledge-based lists, and then 2) selection of lexical items from course texts for vocabulary pre-teaching and for subsequent explicit focus-on-form activities.
