In addition to traditional paper dictionaries, new types of electronic and Internet-based reference tools have recently become available. Currently in development is the Louvain EAP Dictionary (LEAD), a web-based EAP dictionary and writing resource designed for non-native users. Apart from the rich descriptions of non-technical words used to perform key functions in academic discourse, this dictionary offers both semasiological and onomasiological access and an innovative customization system that automatically adapts content to users’ disciplines and mother-tongue backgrounds (Granger & Paquot 2009b).

Although, as Hyland (2012, 152) remarks, lexical bundles and the automated, frequency-driven way in which they are extracted provide limited information on the psycholinguistic processing and acquisition of these units, their “recurrence in multiple texts by different users […] suggests at least some perceptual salience among users and conventionalization within a particular discourse community”. In this way, lexical bundles can give insight into the characteristic phraseology of specific contexts of language use, such as the scientific research genre with which this study is concerned.

ICLE contains over three million words of essay writing by advanced learners of English as a foreign language from a wide range of mother-tongue backgrounds, including French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Swedish, Finnish, Czech, Japanese, Chinese, Polish and Russian (Granger, 2003). The ICLE project is coordinated by the Centre for English Corpus Linguistics of the Catholic University of Louvain-la-Neuve in Belgium, but it is actually a collaborative effort among several universities in different parts of the world.
