Fuentes, Alejandro Curado
The development of communicative approaches and strategies in specialized discourse has led to revising notions of representative and significant language. Particularly in work with academic genres, in science and technology settings, the need for determining these factors is growing. The application of specific language corpora becomes convenient. This paper seeks to specify the type of such corpus linguistic representativeness and significance sought in the case of teaching English to university computer science students. This study attempts to reveal the factors of representativeness and significance in the development of reading material, lexico-grammatical resources, and rhetorical strategies for an English for specific purposes (ESP) course.
