Corpus insights

Slide 8

Stages in the examination Stage1 Producing a recurrence list Comparing the MEPC most regular "words" with the ones from different records Identifying the capacity words not/present in the corpus Finding the scope of the most widely recognized words Stage 2 Identifying the " sea' lexical things in the corpus Analyzing the primary components of the 'field particular' lexical things. Grouping the specialized "words"

Slide 22

THE PEDAGOGIC WASH-BACK more prominent consideration regarding the most incessant and to the minimum continuous words in the writings an alternate approach in outlining learning errands 'sense-fragment based lexical exercises' coordinating 'old words' to 'new implications' investigating the 'various implications' of words dissecting and controlling the diverse connections and blends

Slide 23
