Lecture language in Malaysian engineering lecture Corpus Abstract: A lecture should contain various forms of lecture language that could help students understand the flow of the lecture. Lecture language consists of expressions that mark the topic and plan of a lecture, and/or expressions that signal a new or transition of ideas. Currently, a spoken academic corpus of Malaysian engineering lectures (MASE corpus) is being developed in a joint project between Universiti Teknologi Malaysia and Coventry University. The project focuses on lecturing style in which various pragmatic features are being analysed. This paper presents an analysis of the use of lecture language found in the MASE corpus.
