Intelligent CALL: The magnitude of the task

Abstract : The quality of most CALL programs is not well balanced with respect to the use of computer technology and of language content and processing. This imbalance can be explained by a number of constraints pulling CALL developers in diverging directions. For commercial CALLware the poor learner fit and lack of feedback is a serious impediment. So far ICALL approaches trying to overcome this have not been of a sufficiently high quality due to the vast distance between most learner language and the text genres NLP is helpful for. The way forward suggested here is for ICALL to take a localized, (bilingual) lexicon-centred approach that combines sophisticated resources with improved learner fit for more creative and interactive CALLware.
