Corpus materials are being used in the preparation of many new English
Language Teaching texts at Cambridge University Press. See
Key advantages of using corpus materials include: word lists based on
frequency (particularly useful for dictionary inclusion of course), natural
example sentences, common collocations, grammatical structures as they are
really used. Learner corpora
<http://www.cup.cam.ac.uk/elt/reference/clc.htm> are also extremely useful
in showing typical learner errors.
