The anthology is divided into two parts. Part I deals with problems in psycholinguistics, particularly in the area of language acquisition. Part ii, "The Application of Transformational Grammar to English Teaching," contains sections dealing with the use of transformational grammar in literature and stylistic analysis, in composition writing, in second language teaching and in teaching reading.
