Graduate Assistant Corpus Literacy
This study investigated awareness of, use of, and experiences with linguistic corpora by current and former master’s in Teaching English as a Second Language students at a university in the Midwest. Using an online survey, participants were asked to report their knowledge of terms used in the field of corpus linguistics. An interview was also conducted to further investigate experiences with corpora resources. Results showed that most of the participants had a general, but superficial, awareness of corpus linguistics. Participants did not report use of many of the corpus resources listed in this study. Few participants reported use of corpora over time as well. This study did not gather enough data to draw conclusions from the interview. Implications for further research and for MA programs are discussed.
