Using semi-automatic compiled corpora for medical terminology and vocabulary building in the healthcare domain
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractEnglish, Spanish and German are amongst the most spoken languages in Europe. Thus it is likely that patients from one EU member state seeking medical treatment in another will speak or understand one of these. However, there is a lack of resources to teach efficient communication between patients and medics. To combat this, the TELL-ME project will provide a fully targeted package. This includes learning materials for Medical English, Spanish and German aimed at medical staff already in the other countries or undertaking cross-border mobility. The learning process will be supported by computer-aided tools based on corpora. For this reason, in this workshop we present the semi-automatic compilation of the TELL-ME corpus, whose function is to support the e-learning platform of the TELL-ME project, together with its self-assessment exercises emphasising the importance of specialised terminology in the acquisition of communicative and language skills.
