Linguistics and the teaching of English by Albert H Marckwardt( Book )

27 editions published between 1966 and 1980 in 3 languages and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An overview of language concepts suggests applications of linguistics to the teaching of English at all levels of instruction. Traditional grammar, with its emphasis on syntax and written language, is discussed and then compared to generative grammar, with its emphasis on transformational theory. A discussion of usage summarizes the changes in varieties, levels, and styles of usage, and examines some of the more useful sources of usage information--dictonaries, linguistic atlases, usage manuals, and scholarly treatments of English grammar. The relation of linguistics to the teaching of composition, literature, reading, and spelling is analyzed, and the responsibility of the language curriculum for developing the critical readers and responsible writers essential to a democracy is emphasized.

The place of literature in the teaching of English as a second or foreign language by Albert H Marckwardt( Book )

9 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This inquiry into the role of literature in English as a second language is based upon an examination of six basic issues or principles: (1) the position of English as a foreign language within a country; (2) the aims of English instruction within a country; (3) the way in which the native literature is taught in a country; (4) the availability of English literature translations; (5) the particular nature of the English vocabulary and the well-established facts of word frequency and distribution; and (6) the role of literature in transmitting the target culture. Individual chapters are devoted to such topics as the role of English in the nation and in the schools; teaching the native literature; the teaching of literature in foreign language classes; factors influencing the teaching of literature in the foreign language curriculum including availability of translations, the cultural component in the literary curriculum, the vocabulary problem, and abridged texts; and what literature to teach. References are included in the text. (Ejs)
