CLT seminar: Elena Volodina – Introducing SVALex: a corpus-based lexical resource for second-language learning

SEMINAR

This talk will introduce SVALex, a lexical resource primarily aimed at learners and teachers of Swedish as a foreign and second language that describes the distribution of 15,681 words and expressions across the Common European Framework of Reference, CEFR, based on a corpus of coursebook texts. This talk will center around COCTAILL, the corpus that the list has been generated from, the methodology applied to create the list and comparison of the SVALex to other lexical resources. There will also be a possibility to browse the list via a specially set-up user interface.

Apart from the description of the work done, I would like to welcome some discussion on how to continue with our work, especially when it comes to profiling the existing wordlist into central-peripheral vocabulary as well as on which grounds to assign vocabulary to each level.

Joint work by Elena Volodina, Ildikó Pilán, Thomas Fraçois.
