Studying Morphological Productivity in Learner Corpora

with Prof. Anke Luedeling, Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany

Advanced learners of foreign language need to be able to use rules or constructions productively. Studies on productivity combine qualitative methods and quantitative methods. Using the Falko corpus, Dr. Luedeling will discuss the productivity of complex verbs to illustrate how learner corpora can help us understand features of acquisition that are not accessible with other methods.
