Abstract

This chapter begins with an explanatory definition of corpora and covers different types of corpora available for ELT. It then proceeds to explain what corpus software does and how corpora can be used in ELT. It concludes with a discussion of key areas of debate surrounding the use of corpora for language teaching and future directions in this domain. The chapter does not assume any prior knowledge of corpora.
