THE RETURN OF THE PARADIGM.
BREND, RUTH M.
TWO SIGNIFICANT ASPECTS OF LANGUAGE LEARNING, THE VERTICAL ORGANIZATION OF THE PARADIGM AND THE STUDENT'S ANALYTICAL ABILITY, HAVE BEEN OVERLOOKED IN FAVOR OF DEVELOPING CONVERSATIONAL SKILLS BY A HORIZONTAL APPROACH IN WHICH, FOR EXAMPLE, THE MATERIAL PRESENTS THE ACCUSATIVE CASE ONE DAY AND THE FIRST PERSON PRESENT OF ALL VERBS ON ANOTHER. ALTHOUGH PARADIGMATIC SUMMARIES ARE PROVIDED AT THE END OF SOME TEXTS, THEY ARE OFTEN INSUFFICIENT FOR THE STUDENT TO UNDERSTAND THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE UNIT TO A LARGER CONTEXT AND HE RESENTS RESORTING TO MERE MIMICRY. UNTIL A STUDENT KNOWS THE UNITS OF GRAMMAR, THE CONTEXTS IN WHICH THEY APPEAR, AND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THESE UNITS, HE HAS NOT FULLY LEARNED THE LANGUAGE HE IS STUDYING. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "LANGUAGE LEARNING," VOLUME 17, NUMBERS 1 AND 2, JULY 1967, PAGES 33-35. (SS)
