A standard sample of present-day English for use with digital computers by W. Nelson Francis( Book )

A large body of edited present-day american english, from a random sample of material published for the first time in 1961, was prepared in a format by which it can be transferred to magnetic tape for use in digital data-processing equipment. Five hundred samples, of 2,000 words each, of informative and imaginative prose were chosen, excluding verse, drama, and long passages of prose dialogue because these tend to carry highly subjective imaginative meanings. Punctuation was coded and recorded also. The body of material thus provided should prove helpful to grammarians, lexicographers, and linguists who wish to study contemporary usage of american english

Two Linguists on Freshman English: Pressure from Below by W. Nelson Francis( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The importance of improving English instructors' attitudes toward three broadly classified forms of language expression is examined. The author notes an increased interest in languages among college freshmen and defines the differences between (1) artistic, (2) playful, and (3) intellectual expression. Pressure resulting from advanced teaching methodology and newly developed curriculums, particularly in linguistics, in the secondary school will be felt increasingly as student expectations concerning English faculty attitudes are not realized in the colleges.
