Linguistics: a revolution in teaching by Neil Postman( Book )

31 editions published between 1966 and 1982 in 3 languages and held by 1,046 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook of modern linguistics has been prepared for the adult layman or teacher who needs a general background in linguistics as well as an understanding of the "linguistic approach" as it is being introduced in english teaching today. The authors have taken the stand that linguistics is here to stay--along with the "new math," the "new science," and the "new social studies." Part one deals with the various aspects of linguistics as a discipline, and the importance of its contributions "when it is defined as the use of scientific processes of inquiry into the role of language in human affairs." Part two discusses grammar, usage, semantics, lexicography and dialect geography, linguistics and reading, and related fields such as metalinguistics and psycholinguistics. A two-page chart indicates the major linguists from 1900 to the present time, listed according to their particular field of linguistic study. A selected bibliography is also included. This book is published by dell publishing co., Inc., 750 third avenue, new york, N.Y. 10017 ($1.75). (amm)

Basic Backwardness by Charles Weingartner( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper argues that the "back to basics" movement is regressive and that regression is the characteristic mode of fear-ridden personalities. It is argued that many people in American society today have lost their ability to laugh and do not have the sense of humor which is crucial to a healthy mental state. Such topics as necrophilia, mental illness, and suicide are discussed. It is argued that rather than teaching students grammar, parts of speech, and related taxonomies, we should teach students to maintain a sense of humor and beware of illusions and lies. (Ts)
