Extending corpus linguistics methods to education research

Corpora have been widely used in applied linguistics research and, to a lesser extent, in other fields such as political science or sociology. However, corpus research methods are rarely taught in education faculties. I will discuss different approaches to using CL methods in education research and examine the underlying assumptions that may justify distinguishing between corpus linguistics (CL) as a methodology and as a set of methods. This talk seeks to contribute to the advancement of the debate about how CL can position itself within the wide spectrum of current educational research methods.
