Chatting in the academy: exploring spoken English for academic purposes

Michael McCarthy

How does spoken academic English typically differ from academic writing in university settings and how might this influence EAP materials?

Using illustrations from corpora, this talk will focus on some key differences to be taken into account when planning materials. Practical examples will be drawn from the new edition of Academic Vocabulary in Use and from Viewpoint (both Cambridge University Press).
