Applying corpus-based learning todevelop communicative competence among documentary linguistics students

Introduction. At  present, research-based learning is  one of  the most popular contemporary training methods for secondary vocational education teachers. The paper shows the possibility of using one of these technologies, namely corpus-based learning, for the formation of professionally significant competencies. 

Aim. To describe the technology of using corpus data to train documentary linguistics students.  

Methods. The analysis of regulatory and legal documentation, as well as educational and methodological literature was carried out. The tools of corpus linguistics were used as  teaching tools, namely: distributive analysis for characterizing the combinability of  words, quantitative analysis for determining the frequency of  words and phrases in general and in a particular type of texts. In addition, a content analysis of students’ research works was carried out. 

Results. The article provides evidence of the effectiveness of corpus-based learning for the formation of students’ research and language competencies. This technology also allows one to  expand the repertoire of  students’ skills and knowledge, and stimulate intra-activity motivation of learning. 

Scientific novelty. The article is  the first one to  describe the technology of  applying methods of  corpus linguistics to  teaching documentary linguistics, and even to  form communicative competence among documentary linguistics students  — future teachers of the secondary vocational education system. 

Practical significance. The results of the study can be used to train vocational education teachers and to teach documentary linguistics.
