Teaching and Language Corpora conference

University of Perpignan, France

July 15-18, 2020




The conference will be held at the University of Perpignan in the south of France, 15-18 July 2020.
The following speakers have agreed to give plenaries: Maggie Charles (University of Oxford), Mark Davies (Brigham Young University), Sylvain Detey (Waseda University), François Maniez (University of Lyon 2), Pascual Pérez-Paredes (University of Cambridge).


Abstract Submission

Paper presentations will consist of a 20-minute talk (in English) followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Topics that are within the scope of TaLC include, but are not necessarily limited to, corpus-based approaches to language learning, teaching and assessment in the following areas:

  • teaching first and second languages (including data-driven learning materials and student-centred linguistic investigation)
  • teaching languages for specific purposes
  • teaching interpreting and translation
  • engaging with spoken data
  • teaching intercultural communication
  • developing pedagogic grammars and learner dictionaries
  • developing corpora/tools/resources
  • teacher education
  • research on second language acquisition and learner corpus research
  • teaching of corpus methods to students and researchers in linguistics
  • etc.

Submissions for poster presentations may be shorter. Generally, we suggest submitting an abstract for a poster rather than a paper presentation for: (a) reports on research in its very early phases with no intermediate or final results to report or (b) reports on new corpus data resources.

Abstracts (300-500 words) should be submitted through the online submission system by clicking on the following link: https://easychair.org/cfp/talc2020. Deadline for abstract submission: 15 January 2020.



If you are interested in organising one of the workshops (Wednesday 15 July), please contact the organisers (henry.tyne@univ-perp.fr) with a brief proposal and proposed timeline (morning, afternoon or all-day workshop). Once the conference website indicates that the maximum number of workshops has been reached, no further proposals can be accommodated.
