Ranalli, Jim – CALICO Journal, 2013
This paper describes the design and development of a CALL resource that teaches aspects of word combinability (i.e., grammatical collocation, transitivity, and complementation) to tertiary-level ESL learners by integrating conceptual understanding with related text-analysis and web-based dictionary skills. The resource delivers an automated,…

Hsu, Hsiu-Chen – CALICO Journal, 2012
Over the last decade, a small body of SLA research has examined the effects of task planning on L2 production. This research has revealed positive results concerning the effect of pre-task and online planning on oral and written production. However, no studies to date have investigated the joint effects of pre-task and online planning. In…

Hadjistassou, Stella K. – CALICO Journal, 2012
The goal of this study was to investigate the culturally afforded contradictions that ten advanced English as a Second Language (ESL) learner encountered when they posted their paper topics and exchanged feedback strategies online and contextualized some of these strategies to draft their papers. Using Cultural-Historical Activity Theory (CHAT),…

Hong, Kwang Hee; Samimy, Keiko K. – CALICO Journal, 2010
Previous research on blended learning (BL) implementation in L2 instructional settings considers L2 teachers' use of the incorporated CALL modes and learners' attitudes toward the CALL modes as critical factors, among other factors, for achieving successful BL implementation. In the literature, these two factors are suggested to be strongly…

Gamon, Michael; Leacock, Claudia; Brockett, Chris; Dolan, William B.; Gao, Jianfeng; Belenko, Dmitriy; Klementiev, Alexandre – CALICO Journal, 2009
In this paper we present a system for automatic correction of errors made by learners of English. The system has two novel aspects. First, machine-learned classifiers trained on large amounts of native data and a very large language model are combined to optimize the precision of suggested corrections. Second, the user can access real-life web…

Ranalli, Jim – CALICO Journal, 2009
A large body of research supports the efficacy of learning strategies employed in the acquisition of second language vocabulary. However, research also indicates that many such strategies are underused or misused by learners and, further, that any effort to integrate learner training in the use of such strategies into classroom instruction faces a…

Hegelheimer, Volker; Fisher, David – CALICO Journal, 2006
English language learners are frequently unable to benefit from the prevailing process-writing approaches due to a lack of grammar and vocabulary knowledge relevant to academic writing. This paper describes how the need for explicit grammar instruction as part of preparing students to write can be addressed by using a collection of learner texts…

Chiu, Chi-Yen; Savignon, Sandra J. – CALICO Journal, 2006
This paper reports the findings of a case study that explores the relationship between feedback and revision in the online teaching of two EFL adult writers. The model of feedback adopted was one of content-based feedback followed by form-focused feedback in a series of multidraft compositions. A quantitative analysis of minimal terminal units…

Dodigovic, Marina – CALICO Journal, 1998
In most computer-assisted-language-learning (CALL) projects, research forms an important part of the development process. However, this research frequently goes unnoticed by the academic community, and developers often fail to receive academic recognition for the research component imbedded in their development projects.(Author/ER)

Donaldson, Randall P.; Kotter, Markus – CALICO Journal, 1999
Reports a study that tested the possibility of language instruction in a MOO (Multiple-User Domain, Object-Oriented). The experiment consisted of two groups: adult evening-school participants in Germany learning English-as-a-Second-Language and American college students in their fourth semester of college German. Partnerships were formed with one…
