APPLICATIONS OF PSYCHOLINGUISTIC THEORY TO FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHING.
ESTARELLAS, JUAN
A PRELIMINARY DISCUSSION OF THE FIELD OF PSYCHOLINGUISTICS IS GIVEN TO PROVIDE THE BACKGROUND FOR ILLUSTRATING ITS APPLICATION TO FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHING. THE SPECIFIC EXAMPLES GIVEN ARE FROM A PROGRAMED COURSE DEVELOPED BY THE AUTHOR FOR TEACHING SPANISH TO COLLEGE STUDENTS. THE MORPHEMIC AND SYNTACTIC STRUCTURES OF THE LANGUAGE ARE EMPHASIZED, ON THE BASIS OF A DETAILED CONTRASTIVE ANALYSIS OF THE LANGUAGES INVOLVED. A DIAL-SELECTION AUDIO-VIDEO LANGUAGE LABORATORY IS USED FOR PRESENTATION OF THE MATERIALS. THIS LABORATORY IS UNIQUE AND EXISTS IN THIS FORM ONLY AT FLORIDA ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY. THE MATERIALS CAN ALSO BE ADAPTED FOR PRESENTATION IN MORE TRADITIONAL SETTINGS. EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS OBTAINED WITH THE PROGRAM ARE DISCUSSED AND FUTURE APPLICATIONS OF PSYCHOLINGUISTIC THEORY TO LANGUAGE TEACHING ARE PRESENTED. THIS PAPER WAS DELIVERED AT THE SOUTHERN CONFERENCE ON LANGUAGE TEACHING (2ND, ATLANTA, FEBRUARY 3-5, 1966). (RS)
