Digital Language Resources: SADiLAR

Node for language testing and writing development

Date: 2016 – current
Role: Node manager

The South African Centre for Digital Language Resources (SADiLaR), as a multi-partner initiative, is the only humanities programme of its kind in South Africa and is a national research infrastructure. SADiLaR consists of a network of linked nodes consisting of a number of South African universities and agencies such as Unisa, the University of Pretoria, Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, the Inter-institutional Centre for Language Development and Assessment (ICELDA) and North-West University’s CTexT® unit.

I am currently project leader for three joint SADiLaR|ICELDA projects:

  1. Fair and diagnostic language testing
  2. A multilingual academic wordlist
  3. A multilingual learner corpus of academic writing
