As the importance of corpora has become accepted in our field, researchers and teachers have recognized the value of applying corpus analyses in the creation of word lists. In this session, six speakers will discuss advantages and challenges in creating words lists that are practical and corpus -based. The speakers address diverse perspectives: using existing lists to create new lists, connecting grammar to corpus-based vocabulary lists; considering polysemy; formulaic language in lexical lists; and other semantic issues in lexical lists; evaluating ESP list items with field-specific experts; and managing core English vocabulary lists in academic settings.
