Dr. Cristóbal Lozano conducted the research seminar “Investigating word order in L2 English: triangulating corpus and experimental approaches” at the Faculty of Philology and Translation in Vigo, on 27 Nov 2017. In the first part, he discussed the findings from a series of studies he carried out in collaboration with Dr. Amaya Mendikoetxea (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid) on the acquisition of word order in L1 Spanish-L2 English by considering Subject-Verb inversion structures like those in *because exist the science technology and industrialisation. [Ø-V-S], *it has appeared some cases of women who have killed their husbands. [it-V-S], there exist hidden tactics to seize the money of others. [there-V-S], and In the main plot appear the main characters: Volpone and Mosca. [PP-V-S]. He argued that we can only get a better understanding of word-order alternations (VS but also SV order) if we triangulate results from corpus data as well as from experimental data. The second part of this seminar consisted of a hands-on session, in which Cristóbal Lozano explored some of the data with the help of corpus software: UAM Corpus Tool and AntConc. This seminar received funding from the International Doctoral School in Vigo (EIDO) and the Department of English, French and German in Vigo.
