This joint session between AAAL and the International Language Testing Association (ILTA) brings together experts in corpus linguistics and assessment to discuss how these two sub-fields of applied linguistics intersect. The session features presentations by five researchers involved in the collection and analysis of large language corpora, who will discuss the relevance of their work to language assessment. Two discussants--one expert in corpus linguistics and one in language assessment--will provide additional commentary. The focus of the colloquium relates directly to the conference theme--"Applied Linguistics Applied"--since the presentations will bring together these two important subfields of study.
