Abstract
This study investigates the differences between what textbooks are teaching and how native speakers actually use language as evidenced in the corpora. The author first makes a review of the literature on using authentic versus invented examples in the ELT context, followed by a critical account of what is meant by 'native speaker' and the implications following this classification a comparison between examples from textbooks and/or dictionaries and evidence you have extracted from a corpus. A critical discussion of possible difference is shown after analysis of the differences. The author also offers some implications on using corpora to inform textbook and dictionary design.
