Useful Dictionary of Phrasal Verbs

Genre: Reference

A phrasal verb is a verb that consists of two or three separate parts: 'come in', 'run away', 'look forward to', etc. With an idiomatic phrasal verb, the meanings of the separate parts tell us little or nothing about the meaning of the whole. For example, students may be fully familiar with the meanings of 'pick' and 'up' as individual words, but this knowledge does not help them when they want to know the idiomatic meaning of 'pick up' in, ‘Business is picking up’. This dictionary has been written to help the learner with this type of idiomatic combination. To be fluent in English, you have to be able to use phrasal verbs well. This dictionary has been written for intermediate and advanced students who want an easy-to-use reference book that deals with this area of the language. The emphasis is on idiomatic phrasal verbs, whose meaning and use are especially difficult for students. The Useful Dictionary of Phrasal Verbs has about 2,500 entries, each containing a definition, note on grammatical usage and one or more examples to show how the phrasal verb is actually used. Many new phrasal verbs referring to the world of computers and the Internet – for example 'log in' and 'scroll down'– have been added for this edition. Phrasal verbs are important in English but they are also quite difficult for students to learn. Learners of English need to be able both to recognize them in reading and listening, as well as to be able to use them in writing and speaking.

A Taste for Corpora

Author: Fanny Meunier
Publisher: John Benjamins Publishing
ISBN: 9789027287083
Release Date: 2011-08-18
Genre: Computers

The eleven contributions to this volume, written by expert corpus linguists, tackle corpora from a wide range of perspectives and aim to shed light on the numerous linguistic and pedagogical uses to which corpora can be put. They present cutting-edge research in the authors’ respective domain of expertise and suggest directions for future research. The main focus of the book is on learner corpora, but it also includes reflections on the role of other types of corpora, such as native corpora, expert users corpora, parallel corpora or corpora of New Englishes. For readers who are already familiar with corpora, this volume offers an informed account of the key role that corpus data play in applied linguistics today. As for readers who are new to corpus linguistics, the overview of approaches, methods and domains of applications presented will undoubtedly help them develop their own taste for corpora. This volume has been edited in honour of Sylviane Granger, who has been one of the pioneers of learner corpus research.
