CURRENT TRENDS IN APPLIED LINGUISTICS.
KACHRU, BRAJ B.
WITH PROGRESS IN THEORETICAL AND APPLIED LINGUISTICS, THE APPLICATION OF LINGUISTICS TO LANGUAGE TEACHING HAS COME UNDER INCREASING SCRUTINY. WHILE THE STRUCTURALISTS HAVE FOUND COMPETITION IN THE MORE RECENT CONCEPTS OF THE COMPETENCE-ORIENTED AND THE PERFORMANCE-ORIENTED APPROACHES, AND MENTALISTIC THEORIES SEEM TO PROVIDE MORE EXPLANATIONS THAN THE TAXONOMIC, IT IS STILL DEBATABLE WHETHER THE GENERAL AREA OF APPLIED LINGUISTICS IS SUFFICIENTLY REFINED TO REQUIRE LANGUAGE TEACHERS TO STUDY THE LINGUISTIC SCIENCES. IN THE AREA OF STYLISTICS, THE APPLICATIONS OF LINGUISTICS HOLD GOOD PROMISE, AND FURTHER RESEARCH IN TRANSLATION SHOULD LEAD TO THE RECOGNITION OF SIMILAR REGISTERS AND STYLES IN VARIOUS LANGUAGES. ALTHOUGH CONTRASTIVE ANALYSIS IS DEVELOPING THE NOTION OF TRANSFER GRAMMAR AND INVESTIGATING THE ELEMENTS OF INTERFERENCE BETWEEN LANGUAGES, THE VALUE OF SUCH RESEARCH STILL LIES MAINLY IN THE FUTURE. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE "ILLINOIS JOURNAL OF EDUCATION," VOLUME 57, NUMBER 6, OCTOBER 1966, PAGES 33-41. (GJ)
