Description Corpus linguistics offers to language teachers a wide range of resources how to improve their methodologies of second language teaching in close connection with authentic language data. Especially the area of teaching language for specific purposes calls for relevant support measures since most of the tutors lack the content knowledge of the target discipline. Such a corpus-based approach with the emphasis on real language, a clear distinction of frequently used and typical expressions in the target specific language helps language teachers to modulate a meaningful, effective and engaging learning strategy for their students. The aim of this paper is to contribute to the above discussion with an innovative concept of teaching medical terminology via applying a corpus analysis of authentic clinical texts.
