Introduction à l'étude comparative des langues indoeuropéennes by A Meillet( Book )

13 editions published between 1964 and 1973 in 3 languages and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1903, Antoine Meillet's Introduction a l'Étude comparative des langues Indo-Européennes exemplifies the key methodologies and insights of early twentieth-century comparative linguistics. Its primary aim, as Meillet states, was 'très limité': to provide a brief but comprehensive overview of the Indo-European languages and their shared linguistic structures. He accomplished this object and more in his Introduction, outlining a theory of language change that would influence a generation of linguists, including his students Émile Benveniste and André Martinet. Meillet's debt to his own mentor, Ferdinand de Saussure, is evident in his conception of language as simultaneously social and structural, a lived reality and a constantly evolving grammatical system. This second edition (1908) includes Meillet's extensive revisions and a new chapter on the development of Indo-European dialects. It remains a valuable introduction to the phonology, morphology, and grammar of the Indo-European language family

Application and Problems of Programed Instruction at the College Level by George C Buck( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is the second in a series of reports on research in programed language learning at the college level. (See "Observations on the Use of Three Self-Instructional Programed Foreign Language Courses," by Saltzman, et al, in av Communication Review, Vol. Xiii, No. 1, 1965.) The research considers these questions--(1) How do students perform over a lengthy exposure? (2) What is the teacher's role? (3) Can a teacher effectively handle classes larger than 20? (4) What are the problems of integration into the regular college? (5) Can programed instruction be used as a remedial tool for students with special problems? (6) Does the "slow learner" find this method advantageous? (7) What is the future of programed elementary language instruction from the university point of view? (8) What are the weaknesses of the programs? This report is limited to several of these questions, the remainder depending on follow-up studies. Favorable and negative comments from the students in this experimental program (University of Washington, 1964-65) are included. "The students themselves," the authors state, "are quite enthusiastic about the method." However, one unanticipated problem arose when the students confronted a human instructor for the first time; they were confused at the "random nature" of his questions. This seems to indicate the need for scheduling more discussion sessions simulating "everyday life." (Amm)
