Elicitation experiments in English; linguistic studies in use and attitude by Sidney Greenbaum( Book )

22 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central concern of this book is the pursuit of experimental methods whereby grammatical and semantic inquiry can be put on a satisfying objective basis. (To state that the aim is to find out whether a given linguistic form is "acceptable" is true, but an oversimplification which is misleading because it implies a "yes or no" decision and because it implies that "acceptability" is a simple , unified phenomenon.) The techniques explored in this monograph are designed to cope with a multifaceted acceptability within which it is essential as a minimum to make such distinctions as "potential or habitual use" vs. "Attitude reflecting"; "relatively unconditioned" vs. "Relatively conditioned"; "relatively uniform" vs. "Relatively diverse"; "varying in the individual" and/or "varying in the society." The authors discuss the experimental design and its testing, the relevant aspects of responses, comparability and consistency, the experimental environment, linguistic problems, and test results. They conclude that if elicitation procedures are to provide the "operational connexion between the linguist's 'raw material' and its ultimate source of control in the reactions of native speakers" (Lyons 1968), much fundamental work must be done on the relations between syntax and semantics. Their test batteries are producing data "directly assimilable into the description of English." (Amm)
