CALPER's Corpus Community Reports consist of a set of documents where language educators describe their corpus projects or their studies and some relate their experiences compiling and analyzing copora and learner language. The Corpus Community Reports are intended to provide those interested in working with copora with first hand insights into projects of language teachers and researchers.
