Academic language

Large general English corpora (e.g. Oxford English Corpus, Cambridge International Corpus) on which main dictionaries are based have recently reached the size of over one billion words. Currently, the largest corpus of written academic English is the academic subcorpus of COCA (approx. 70 million words).

This section offers tools and ideas for teaching academic English.
