about

The MICASE Handbook: A Resource for Users of the Michigan Corpus of Academic Spoken English is designed to provide teachers, researchers, and students with a tool for navigating and effectively utilizing the online corpus of academic speech developed by the English Language Institute at the University of Michigan (www.hti.umich.edu/m/micase).

The MICASE Handbook presents information that has previously been unavailable to corpus users, giving teachers the ability to easily locate appropriate material for their lessons. This is an excellent resource for post-secondary ESL/EFL teachers who have incorporated or hope to incorporate corpus-based work into their classroom activities and for corpus linguists and discourse analysts who use the data in their in research.

The MICASE Handbook includes:
* abstracts of all 152 speech events included in the corpus
* speech events organized by type of speech event, academic division, interactivity rating, participant level, and characteristics of the primary speaker
* guidelines for developing pedagogical materials and sample MICASE-based instructional materials.
