Lexically Driven Error Detection and Correction

Cornelia Tschichold
Issued Date: 7 Aug 2014


Recent progress in multimedia technology used in CALL has clearly been more impressive than progress in error detection capability. In order to overcome the obstacles in error detection needed for intelligent feedback in CALL, this paper calls for a new focus on lexical items, both single words and multiword units of various types. Single and multiword lexemes should not only be explicitly taught in CALL, but could also provide the key to more effective feedback on the language production by learners.
