Concordancing lexical primings
The rationale and design of a user-friendly corpus tool for English language teaching and self-tutoring based on the Lexical Priming theory of language
Lexical Priming (Hoey 2005) brings together a range of linguistic patterns that should be an important focus of language learning and teaching. But it also adds an additional load to learners and teachers, demanding attention to different primings of words and nested combinations of words. With many tendencies difficult to observe in dictionary entries or other concordancing software, learners and teachers will face difficulties finding and presenting information about these primings. This chapter introduces the design of a concordancer (The Prime Machine), created for a doctoral degree project and developed to be firmly based on the theory of Lexical Priming. It introduces the pedagogical rationale for the development of some key features, including the search screen interface and the display of concordance lines.
