I would like to invite interested scholars for contributions to a Special
Issue of the International Journal of Applied Linguistics (Wiley) on
Corpus-based language teaching and learning: applications and implications

The great advances in corpus building and tools in recent years are yet to be
matched by the actual use of corpora in language teaching. The last decade has
seen a surge in corpus-based teaching approaches in second/foreign language
classrooms, as teachers around the world realize the importance of authentic
data in their classrooms. However, the move to a more corpus-conscious
approach is not an easy task, especially for less common or resource-poor
languages. The potential applications of corpora in language teaching are
numerous, whether by using specific corpus-based tasks in the classroom or by
developing corpus-informed teaching materials. 

This special issue will aim to present a panoramic view of the latest trends
in the corpus-based teaching approach and how they are shaping the language
classroom. Research related to under-represented languages is especially
welcome. 
The themes of this special issue include, but are not limited to:
- Using corpora for the teaching of vocabulary and grammar. 
- Using corpora for improving writing skills.
- The impact of corpora on designing curricula and/or syllabi
- Corpus-based language textbooks 
- Written vs spoken corpora in teaching
- Experimental research on using corpora in language teaching

To express interest, kindly send an abstract, of no more than 300 words,
highlighting how your original work fits within any of the themes of this
special issue, to mzaki at aus.edu no later than September 15th 2018.
Notifications of acceptance will be sent by October 1st 2018. A special issue
typically contains up to 8 articles (ideally on different languages), each
between 4000 to 8000 words. Papers ready for submission will be due in
February 2019. All selected papers will go through a comprehensive and blinded
peer-review as per the guidelines on the journal website
(https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/14734192)
