Access and Resources
WITH SKETCH ENGINE OPEN ACCESS
The Sketch Engine open access interface will allow you to view concordance lines and surrounding contexts for the lecture portion of the BASE corpus.
Concordances from an untagged version of the BASE corpus can be created using Lextutor. This is a freely accessible, easy-to-use tool for teachers and learners.
Subscribing to Sketch Engine provides access to a number pre-loaded corpora, including BASE (lectures only) and BAWE, and offers a wider range of search features. You can register for a 30-day free trial account.
The British Academic Spoken English (BASE) corpus and the Michigan Corpus of Academic Spoken English (MICASE) were used for the oral component of this wordlist:
