Collocations in a Learner Corpus (Studies in Corpus Linguistics) by Nadja Nesselhauf



Collocations in a Learner Corpus. Nadja Nesselhauf University of Heidelberg. John Benjamins Publishing Company Amsterdam/Philadelphia. This book is based upon my PhD dissertation, Collocations in the English of Advanced Learners. A Study Based on a Learner Corpus, which was accepted by the ische Fakultät of the University of Basel in August 2003. I would like to thank my supervisors, David J. Allerton and Christian Mair, for their warm support throughout the writing process and beyond. David Allerton gave most generously of his time to discuss all aspects of my work and also alerted me to many subtleties in the areas of phraseology and syntax.

To contribute to ongoing work on both fronts is the purpose of Nadja Nesselhauf's book, which is based on her doctoral study of one type of multiword unit in the written production of advanced German-speaking ESL students. But Nesselhauf goes beyond anything published to date in her delimitation of phenomena and her generation of comparable data.

This group of expressions has been variously called prefabricated units, prefabs, phraseological units, (lexical) chunks, multi-word units, or formulaic sequences. 1 They are made up of more than one word and are lexically and/or syntactically fixed to a certain degree.

Studies in Corpus Linguistics 14. Amsterdam: John Benjamins. 331 pp + xii. For CMLR; Jan 2006; pre-publication. If vocabulary was flavour of the month in last-decade applied linguistics, in this one it is the multiword unit (MWU). To contribute to ongoing work on both fronts is the purpose of Nadja Nesselhauf’s book, based on her doctoral study of one type of multiword unit in the written production of advanced German-speaking ESL students. A catalogue of such collocations is hand-extracted from her learner corpus, and native collocations separated from learner deviations by native raters; collocations are counted in terms of frequency and range, and deviations are categorized by type and probable intended meaning.

In this book, these difficulties are for the first time comprehensively investigated. On the basis of a learner corpus, idiosyncratic collocation use by learners is uncovered, the building material of learner collocations examined, and the factors that contribute to the difficulty of certain groups of collocations identified  .

Fabiana Rosi, Department of Linguistics, University of Pavia, Italy. Collocations in a Learner Corpus" is a monograph that brings together two innovative topics: collocations' acquisition and Learner Corpus studies. Collocations in a Learner Corpus" is a notable book for anyone interested in the acquisition of collocations, since it provides both theoretical discussion and detailed empirical analysis. The book is well written and follows a rational organization of chapters. First, the author introduces the theoretical framework; second, presents the method; and finally, illustrates and discusses the empirical data.

Collocations are both pervasive in language and difficult for language learners, even at an advanced level. In this book, these difficulties are for the first time comprehensively investigated. On the basis of a learner corpus, idiosyncratic collocation use by learners is uncovered, the building material of learner collocations examined, and the factors that contribute to the difficulty of certain groups of collocations identified. An extensive discussion of the implications of the results for the foreign language classroom is also presented, and the contentious issue of the relation of corpus linguistic research and language teaching is thus extended to learner corpus analysis.
