Course Description: This advanced course provides theoretical understanding of some aspects of lexicology, including lexical semantics (the study of word meaning), word frequency, and word collocation patterns, and then examines how this can be applied to the creation of materials for language study, such as dictionaries, thesauruses, textbooks, and on-line study materials. During the semester, students will write reviews of some of the materials for language study, describing the theoretical basis upon which they were developed, and judging their likely usefulness for language learners. There will also be some assignments in which students will find or create their own materials and share them their with their classmates. Assessment: papers (45%), participation (25%), final project and presentation (30%). The class will mainly focus on materials for English study, but there will be opportunities to investigate materials for the study of Japanese and other languages of interest to the students. The students will learn about linguistic theories and research results related to words and vocabulary, and then see how these theories are applied in actual materials use for reference and language teaching and study. Students will also learn about many computer resources, and develop their critical thinking ability in evaluating these resources.
