Dear colleagues

I am glad to announce that my PhD thesis in learner English corpus study, under Professor Susan Hunston in the University of Birmingham, has been published by Linguistics Journal at the following website:
http://www.linguistics-journal.com/thesis.php

The title of the thesis is:

Verbs in the Written English of Chinese Learners: A Corpus-based Comparison between Non-native Speakers and Native Speakers

Examiners: Dr. Mike Scott (external) and Dr. Martin Hewings (internal)

Time of submission: October, 2006

I have been trying to have this published since the submission of the thesis to the university because I believe that this research is useful to learner English studies, English teaching and learning and perhaps SLA; and that such of a thesis with so much whole-hearted dedication should not stay idle in the university library, especially when corpus linguistics is becoming popular and being accepted by many neighbouring disciplines. The research was completed over six long years in which I used approximately four years time on study and the other two years on part-time work for the tuition fees and supporting my family.

I am grateful to all those who have helped me in one way or another (I hope I have included everybody in my acknowledgements, pardon me if I haven’t). Also, may I thank all those of you who have replied to my queries on the Corpora mailing list regarding learner English studies during my PhD research?

I do hope this piece of research bring my two cents in learner English study to the corpora world. Your comments are warmly welcome.

Currently, I am running a language centre in Birmingham to make a living (teaching English and Chinese) but have not stopped seeking an academic job in corpus linguistics or a relevant area around the world.

All the best wishes

Abstract
This thesis consists of ten chapters and its research methodology is a combination of quantitative and qualitative. Chapter One introduces the theme of the thesis, a demonstration of a corpus-based comparative approach in detecting the needs of the learners by looking for the similarities and disparities between the learner English (the COLEC corpus) and the NS English (the LOCNESS corpus). Chapter Two reviews the literature in relevant learner language studies and indicates the tasks of the research. The data and technology are introduced in Chapter Three. Chapter Four shows how two verb lemma lists can be made by using the Wordsmith Tools supported by other corpus and IT tools. How to make sense of the verb lemma lists is the focus of the second part of this chapter. Chapter Five deals with the individual forms of verbs and the findings suggest that there is less homogeneity in the learner English than the NS English. Chapter Six extends the research to verb noun relationships in the learner English and the NS English and the result shows that the learners prioritise verbs over nouns. Chapter Seven studies the learners preferences in using the patterns of KEEP compared with those of the NSs, and finds that the learners have various problems in using this simple verb. In this chapter, too, my reservations about the traditional use of overuse and underuse are expressed and a finer classification system is suggested. Chapter Eight compares another frequently-occurring verb, TAKE, in the aspect of collocates and yields similar findings that the learners have problems even with such simple vocabulary. In Chapter Nine, the research findings from Chapter Four to Chapter Eight are revisited and discussed in relation to the theme of the thesis. The concluding chapter, Chapter Ten, summarises the previous chapters and envisages how learner language studies will develop in the coming few years.
