This Legal English collection is based on the English Common Law MOOC lectures (University of London with Coursera). It enables both native speakers of English and non-native speakers of English to go deeper into the lecture material with content mining technologies, highlighting key terms and concepts from the English common law through interactive learning designs.

Please take a look at our 3 quick training videos to guide you around the English Common Law MOOC Collection in FLAX.

Within the next week we will be launching a survey for user feedback on the FLAX English Common Law collection to help us improve our learning and software designs, and we will offer a prize of a $100 Amazon gift voucher or a donation to a charity of your choice to one lucky participant of the survey. Be in to win!

This collaboration for the development of legal English language resources is between FLAX, The Open Educational Resources Research Hub and the Language Centre at Queen Mary University of London. Thank you.

PhD Abstracts (Arts and Humanities)

 

This collection contains 5525 pieces of proficient assessed PhD student writing from disciplinary areas of the Arts and Humanities. It is a sub-collection of the PhD thesis abstracts collections in FLAX and is derived from the EThOS Open Access toolkit, which is made available by the British Library for reuse by third parties for not-for-profit purposes. The copyright remains with the authors of the PhD theses unless otherwise stated in the licensing information provided by EThOS.

The PhD Abstracts Collections in FLAX provide interactive open text analysis tools for investigating the lexico-grammar of academic English at the text and corpus level. The user interfaces of these tools have been designed specifically for learners and teachers so that the abstracts in these collections can easily be browsed by specific academic subject areas. Furthermore, the PhD Abstract Collections are augmented with larger corpora, including the British National Corpus and the Wikipedia Collocation Learning System in FLAX, for a more powerful and integrated authentic language learning experience.

EThOS at the British Library uses the Dewey Decimal Classification, which organizes library materials by discipline or field of study. The main divisions of the Dewey Decimal Classification system include philosophy, social sciences, science, technology, and history. These main divisions fall within a scheme made up of ten classes, each divided into ten divisions, and each having ten sections. Here with the PhD Abstracts Collections in FLAX, abstracts are directed into one of four overarching discipline divisions to make up the following sub-collections: Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, Physical Sciences and Life Sciences. This Arts and Humanities sub-collection in FLAX includes abstracts that have been classified into discipline sub-divisions from the 000, 100, 200, 400, 700, 800 and 900 classes of the Dewey Decimal Classification system, specifically:

There are many definitions of collocation. We think of collocations in the same way as expressed by Benson et al.: "In any language, certain words combine with certain other words or grammatical constructions. These recurrent, semi-fixed combinations, or collocations, can be divided into two groups: grammatical collocations and lexical collocations."

Enter this collection to search for the company words keep. How words form into collocational patterns will be revealed by looking across the 100 million-word British National Corpus (BNC) reference corpus, the British Academic Written English (BAWE) corpus of 2500 university student writing texts and the Wikipedia crowd-sourced corpus of three million articles.

This collection contains 750 pieces of proficient assessed student writing in the disciplinary area of social sciences. It is a sub-collection of the British Academic Written English (BAWE) corpus.

The BAWE collection was designed to fill a gap in current corpus resources by complementing other writing collections which represent expertly written academic texts or non-discipline specific student texts. Student assessed writing is a particularly ‘occluded’ area, because participants don’t usually seemany examples of it – some students never read any assessed work except their own.

Thirteen broad ‘genre families’ have been identified in the corpus, including the ‘essay’, of course, and writing generically similar to the published research article, but also other types of writing reflecting other purposes of university study. The developers of BAWE chose their own names for these genre families, because departmental nomenclature tends to be inconsistent.

The BAWE collection was developed at the Universities of Warwick, Reading and Oxford Brookes under the directorship of Hilary Nesi and Sheena Gardner (formerly of the Centre for Applied Linguistics [previously called CELTE], Warwick), Paul Thompson (Department of Applied Linguistics, Reading) and Paul Wickens (Westminster Institute of Education, Oxford Brookes), with funding from the ESRC (RES-000-23-0800).

The PhD Abstracts Collections in FLAX provide interactive open text analysis tools for investigating the lexico-grammar of academic English at the text and corpus level. The user interfaces of these tools have been designed specifically for learners and teachers so that the abstracts in these collections can easily be browsed by specific academic subject areas. Furthermore, the PhD Abstract Collections are augmented with larger corpora, including the British National Corpus and the Wikipedia Collocation Learning System in FLAX, for a more powerful and integrated authentic language learning experience.

EThOS at the British Library uses the Dewey Decimal Classification system, which organizes library materials by discipline or field of study. The main divisions of the Dewey Decimal Classification system include philosophy, social sciences, science, technology, and history. These main divisions fall within a scheme made up of ten classes, each divided into ten divisions, and each having ten sections. Here with the PhD Abstracts Collections in FLAX, abstracts are directed into one of four over-arching discipline divisions to make up the following sub-collections: Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, Physical Sciences and Life Sciences. This Life Sciences collection in FLAX includes abstracts that have been classified into discipline sub-divisions from the 500 and 600 classes of the Dewey Decimal Classification system, specifically:

  • 560 Fossils and prehistoric life
  • 570 Biology
  • 580 Plants
  • 590 Animals (Zoology)
  • 610 Medicine and health
  • 630 Agriculture

This collection contains 593 pieces of proficient assessed student writing in the disciplinary area of physical sciences. It is a sub-collection of the British Academic Written English (BAWE) corpus.

The BAWE collection was designed to fill a gap in current corpus resources by complementing other writing collections which represent expertly written academic texts or non-discipline specific student texts. Student assessed writing is a particularly ‘occluded’ area, because participants don’t usually seemany examples of it – some students never read any assessed work except their own.

Thirteen broad ‘genre families’ have been identified in the corpus, including the ‘essay’, of course, and writing generically similar to the published research article, but also other types of writing reflecting other purposes of university study. The developers of BAWE chose their own names for these genre families, because departmental nomenclature tends to be inconsistent.

The BAWE collection was developed at the Universities of Warwick, Reading and Oxford Brookes under the directorship of Hilary Nesi and Sheena Gardner (formerly of the Centre for Applied Linguistics [previously called CELTE], Warwick), Paul Thompson (Department of Applied Linguistics, Reading) and Paul Wickens (Westminster Institute of Education, Oxford Brookes), with funding from the ESRC (RES-000-23-0800).

There are many definitions of collocation. We think of collocations in the same way as expressed by Benson et al.: "In any language, certain words combine with certain other words or grammatical constructions. These recurrent, semi-fixed combinations, or collocations, can be divided into two groups: grammatical collocations and lexical collocations."
