Integrative Uses of the Language Lab for Intermediate and Advanced Students by Adolf E Hieke( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Language laboratories are especially neglected at the intermediate and advanced levels of foreign language learning. Teachers fail to avail themselves of an important teaching tool at a critical point, when the more mechanical aspects of assimilating the target language should give way to gaining an actual communicative competence in it. At the higher levels, the potential of the lab has never been fully developed. A number of ways are suggested in which crucial classroom time can be increased by relegating the more routine activities as well as those not necessitating 'live' teacher presence to the lab. A number of such activities are listed and procedures given to put a plan for integrating the lab into operation. It is demonstrated how any classroom teacher or school system can adopt such an approach at the intermediate and advanced levels without great time expenditures, highly technical know-how in preparing tapes, or substantially increased funds, even if no full professional language laboratory is on the premises.

Spoken Language Phonotactics by Adolf E Hieke( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The transformation that language undergoes when it becomes speech is examined in English. Statistical analysis of a representative sample of natural, informal speech reveals a number of characteristics of dynamic speech that distinguish it from static (citation form or pre-dynamic) linguistic form. It appears that in running speech, vowels and consonants, words and sentences are less central to speech dynamics than sonorants and obstruents, syllables, and syllabic phrases. The findings include these: (1) when language is learned in its dynamic (spoken) rather than static form, the basic unit contains more phonemes, making it more complex to learn; (2) utterances are predominantly made up of sonorants and other voiced sounds; (3) running speech can tolerate a maximum of five consonants in sequence, and the sequences are regular and predictable; (4) syllable boundaries are fluid and can be expected to change configuration through restructuring; (5) syllable combinations affect syllabic distinctions; and (6) application of the variable fast speech rules still results in regularly shaped utterances. It is suggested that incorporating information about speech dynamics into second language instruction may facilitate acquisition of oral fluency. (Mse)
Oral Fluency and Its Evaluation by Adolf E Hieke( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is proposed that a speech-dynamic analysis of oral fluency phenomena serves best to highlight the nondiscrete nature of the sound stream and to capture English syllable structure. Some current concepts and practices in oral testing are criticized, and previously neglected evidence concerning temporal variables in speech, automatic speech recognition, and recent experimental findings are presented that support a reexamination of the parameters of fluent speech based on quantitative and qualitative phenomena. The quantitative and qualitative speech parameters are outlined and discussed to underscore the range and complexity of features that nonnative speakers must master for fluency. Native and nonnative speech data on consonant attraction are examined, and the phenomenon of restoration in listening is also briefly discussed. It is concluded that with a topic as multidimensional as fluency, at least some of the features sensitive to speech flow and information flow in language have inevitably received insufficient attention. A more holistic understanding of these features can, along with innovative techniques, contribute to improved attainment of fluency. (Mse)
Toward a Keyboard-Compatible English Phonetic Alphabet for Esl by Adolf E Hieke( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A discussion of phonetic transcription looks at the weaknesses of the International Phonetic Alphabet (ipa), a cumbersome system to use with typewriter and computer keyboards, and offers an alternative. It is noted that the ipa, a system of symbols devised for handwritten transcription, is rarely used by second language teachers or instructional materials writers for explanatory or instructional purposes despite the need for such a tool. It is then proposed that, with a few slight changes, natural English speech can be transcribed with ease, speed, and efficiency if the system uses the standard keyboard, all common symbol uses are limited to a single stroke, lower case letters are used for all of the basic phonemes, and the primary rest position (asdf/jkl;) is reserved for the most frequently used symbols. The proposed system is outlined briefly, its potential for clearly and adequately representing dynamic speech features is reviewed, and a sample passage using the new symbols is presented. A list of 16 references is also included. (Author/MSE)
On the Dynamics of Casual and Careful Speech by Adolf E Hieke( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comparative statistical data are presented on speech dynamic (as contrasted with lexical and rhetorical) aspects of major speech styles. Representative samples of story retelling, lectures, speeches, sermons, interviews, and panel discussions serve to determine posited differences between casual and careful speech. Data are drawn from 15,393 syllables of various kinds of natural speech in recorded and transcribed form. Frequency of occurrence of three prominent absorption processes, whereby strings of discrete citation forms are transformed into speech dynamic events, are charted. Such absorption phenomena are shown to facilitate ease-of-articulation adjustments and can make explicit what is ultimately perceived as fluent speech. Given appropriate environments, a comparison of potential to actual dynamic speech occurrences shows that the variable rules of speech production investigated here exhibit a consistently high actuation rate of about 75 percent across both speech styles. Implications for second language instruction to develop fluent speech strategies are discussed, particularly use of an "increments of knowledge" approach, effective with already partially competent learners, that is seen as more effective than the customary full "body of knowledge" approach. Contains 36 references. (Mse)
On The Road to Fluency A. L. P by Adolf E Hieke( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Audio-Lectal Practice (ALP) as a second language teaching methodology is described. In this program, students recite progressively difficult texts in the language laboratory, and compare their recitation with the taped recitation of a native speaker. The method facilitates exposure and rigorous work on the oral discourse features of the target language: rhythm, tempo, pausing, and the alternation of suprasegmental patterns and contours in the natural discourse. The function in mastering a language of the last skill listed and the operation of one ALP program are explained briefly, and the development of ALP at the University of Tuebingen is outlined. Initial test results are discussed which indicate positive effects of ALP on the acquisition of oral discourse features and on fluency. A brief bibliography is appended. (Author/JB)
