The FLAX team have released ten new mobile apps for Android which are free to download from GooglePlay. These game-based apps are a fun way to interact with the language collections in FLAX. Give them a go!
These powerful collections draw on large reference corpora like the British National Corpus (BNC) and even larger datasets from Google and Wikipedia. More powerful than a dictionary, these collections show numerous examples of language in context for some of the most challenging areas of English language learning - collocations and phrases - where there are literally hundreds of thousands of possibilities for combining words.
These collections come from the E-theses Online Service (EThOS) Open Access initiative managed by the British Library.
The resources used in these law collections come from open podcasts, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and Open Access publications. They have been developed to support learners with Legal English and to demonstrate the types of domain-specific collections that can be built using the FLAX software.
These collections come from the British Academic Written English (BAWE) corpus, which was developed at the Universities of Warwick, Reading and Oxford Brookes.
