Abstract [en]

We present Larka, the language learning platform of Sprakbanken (the Swedish Language Bank). It consists of an exercise generator which reuses resources available through Sprakbanken: mainly Korp, the corpus infrastructure, and Karp, the lexical infrastructure. Through Larka we reach new user groups students and teachers of Linguistics as well as second language learners and their teachers and this way bring Sprakbanken's resources in a relevant format to them. Larka can therefore be viewed as an case of real-life language resource evaluation with end users. In this article we describe Larka's architecture, its user interface, and the five exercise types that have been released for users so far. The first user evaluation following in-class usage with students of linguistics, speech therapy and teacher candidates are presented. The outline of future work concludes the paper.
