New Insights and Methods of Vocabulary Acquisition in Latin Classes (Preprint) [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Learning a historical language is in itself different from learning a modern language in view of emphasizing the work on texts instead of everyday communication. Therefore, not only the expectations and motivation differ, but also the teaching methodology. Whereas learners of modern languages focus on language production, learners of Latin read or translate their texts. Because of the overall low frequency of occurrence of a Latin word or a phrase in this kind of learning environment most students are often unfamiliar with a given word and therefore finally unable to translate the texts. To tackle this underlying problem of Latin classes an interdisciplinary research project conducted different studies using a data-driven learning (DDL) approach. So far, the findings are very multifaceted and sometimes even surprising, e.g. that the majority of students fail to lemmatise words correctly though they have learned Latin for four years or more.
