Liebe Fortbildungsteilnehmer,

 

auf dieser Seite finden Sie (in etwas ungeordneter Form) verschiedene Verweise zum Schreiben sowie den in Iserlohn durchgeführten Vocabulary Levels Test.

 

1. Das Gesamtkonzept meines Oberstufenschreibunterrichts findet sich in folgendem deutschsprachigen Aufsatz:

 

Siepmann, D. 2002. Fremdsprachliches Schreiben auf der gymnasialen Oberstufe: acht Thesen zur bestehenden Praxis und Vorschläge für einen Teillehrplan. Neusprachliche Mitteilungen aus Wissenschaft und Praxis 1, Jan, 24-32.

3. Concordancers and Corpus Linguistics

 

Those of you who are interested in using concordancing software can download a free DOS-based concordancer called Microconcord.

Download Microconcord at http://www.lexically.net/software/index.htm and a corpus of specialist (film studies) texts onto your hard disk, placing them in the same directory; open the Windows explorer and start Microconcord by clicking on the file named ‘MCONCORD’ (application/Anwendung).

Corpora of specialist texts can be constructed from texts freely available on the World Wide Web using off-line browsers (e.g. Teleport).

 

More detailed introductions to corpus linguistics are Catherine Ball, Concordances and Corpora, Tony McEnery/Andrew Wilson, Corpus Linguistics and Graeme Kennedy, Introduction to Corpus Linguistics. London: Longman 1998; I have published a French-language article on a corpus-driven approach to grammar.

 

Multiconcord, a powerful multilingual concordancer, can be obtained from CFL Software Development (see http://web.bham.ac.uk/johnstf/lingua.htm)

 

4. DATA PASSWORD: determiners (articles, pronouns, etc.), agreement (subject-verb), tenses, adverb vs. adjective, prepositions, active/passive, sequence of tenses (reported speech), structures (verb complementation), word order (SVO, etc.), orthography, re-order (never had I ..., seldom did I ...), do-insertion (does he play football?)

 

5. English WordProf (based on the French software Gammes d’écriture)

 

If you wish to use English WordProf at your school, contact M. Ferraris, CNR Istituto Tecnologie Didattiche, Via de Marini 6, Torre di Francia, 16149 Genova, Italia
