Learning and teaching through context: a data-driven approach

Ramesh Krishnamurthy

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

A word may have many potential meanings, but its actual meaning in any authentic written or spoken text is determined by its context: its collocations, structural patterns, and pragmatic functions. Large language corpora offer access to words in a wide range of natural contexts, which can improve and enrich both language learning and teaching.
