||The JEFLL Corpus Project
Director: Dr Yukio Tono (Tokyo University of Foreign Studies)
The JEFLL (Japanese EFL Learner) Corpus is a collection of free compositions written by more than 10,000 Japanese-speaking learners of English. The corpus size is approximately 700,000 words. It consists of the subjects ranging from novice to intermediate levels, covering mainly junior and senior high school students in Japan. The essay task is carefully controlled so that each subcorpus can be comparable across topics, proficiency, school years, school types, among others.
The JEFLL Corpus will be freely available for research, first via the web query system developed by Shogakukan Inc., and then the entire data will be distributed under license in the future. We are now working on the masking of privacy information in the corpus.
This web page will provide the basic information on JEFLL as well as some fundamental corpus statistics in order to fully appreciate the results of the analysis of JEFLL.
