A Corpus-Based Study of Idioms in Academic Speech.
Simpson, Rita; Mendis, Dushyanthi
TESOL Quarterly, v37 n3 p419-41 Aut 2003
Addresses the advantages and limitations of a corpus-based approach to researching and teaching idioms in a specific genre by drawing on a specialized corpus of 1.7 million words of academic discourse, the Michigan Corpus of Academic Spoken English. Argues that evidence from such a corpus can be informative for language teachers when the primary target language domain matches that of the corpus. (Author/VWL)
