EFFECTING DIALECT CHANGE THROUGH ORAL DRILL.
SLAGER, WILLIAM R.
THE AUTHOR'S AIM IN THIS PAPER IS TO INTRODUCE THE CLASSROOM TEACHER TO THE TECHNIQUES OF PREPARING AND USING ORAL DRILLS TO TEACH STANDARD ENGLISH TO SPEAKERS OF NON-STANDARD ENGLISH. SUGGESTED LINGUISTIC READINGS AND A BRIEF OUTLINE OF THE WORK BEING DONE IN THE UNITED STATES IN THE FIELD OF REGIONAL AND SOCIAL DIALECTOLOGY PRECEDE EXPLANATION OF THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF DRILLS WHICH THE TEACHER CAN ADAPT TO HIS OWN TEACHING SITUATION. MODELS FOR DRILLING CHANGES IN PRONUNCIATION AND GRAMMAR ARE PRESENTED WITH PRACTICAL TEACHING SUGGESTIONS. THE AUTHOR WARNS, HOWEVER, AGAINST LIMITING THIS TEACHING TO ORAL DRILLS, AND POINTS OUT THE NEED FOR DEVELOPING THE SYNTAX AND VOCABULARY OF THE NON-STANDARD SPEAKER. THIS CALLS FOR GREATER EMPHASIS ON SENTENCE BUILDING AND PARAGRAPH WRITING IN THE CLASSROOM. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE "ENGLISH JOURNAL," VOLUME 56, NUMBER 8, NOVEMBER 1967. (AM)
