Innovations in Languages for Specific Purposes - Innovations en Langues sur Objectifs Spécifiques

Present Challenges and Future Promises - Défis actuels et engagements à venir


Edited By Magdalena Sowa and Jaroslaw Krajka

The papers collected in this book present diverse views and experiences on teaching English and French for specific and academic purposes. The scope of reflection covers a wide spectrum of cognitive areas of ESP and FOS, encompassing a multitude of training aspects and components (curricula, methods and techniques, materials and teaching aids) from the perspective of both LSP teachers and learners. A great range of topics related to work-specific language instruction addressed in the book displays the interdisciplinary nature of the research area, integrating aspects of linguistics, sociolinguistics, didactics and pedagogy.

Les textes réunis dans le présent volume exposent les idées et expériences relatives à l’enseignement de l’anglais et du français sur objectifs spécifiques et universitaires. Les sujets de réflexion ici abordés couvrent un vaste éventail d’aspects cognitifs et organisationnels (curricula, méthodes et techniques, matériels et outils) propres aux formations en ESP et FOS, ceux-ci envisagés dans la perspective des apprenants et des enseignants. La diversité d’éléments inhérents à la formation linguistico-professionnelle discutés par des didacticiens-chercheurs éminents témoigne du caractère interdisciplinaire du domaine d’investigation LSP qui intègre les points de vues des linguistes, sociolinguistes, didacticiens et pédagogues.

EFECT (Expert Field Environment Collaborative Training) corpus: Cooperation between the academic and professional spheres

Abstract: The relationship between LSP and corpora started to strengthen a few years ago (Bowker and Pearson 2002), and ad-hoc corpora are probably the type of corpus most often used as a source of learning and teaching materials. When the texts in such a corpus are professionally-oriented, the resulting materials are expected to better suit specific learners’ needs. In the majority of cases, texts for a corpus are obtained by means of Internet data mining, with a teacher deciding what texts to retrieve.
