The CLARIN Resource Families initiative provides a user-friendly overview of the available language resources in the CLARIN infrastructure.
This month CLARIN highlights the L2 learner corpora. These corpora play a crucial role in second language research and pedagogy, allowing for a systematic study of how a learner of a second language acquires the new language on a lexical as well as syntactic level, and how the learning process is influenced by his or her native language. A special characteristic of this type of corpora are the markup of errors and prosodic features of the learners. The CLARIN infrastructure provides access to 36 L2 learner corpora.
