FOUNDATIONS OF THAI. BOOK I, PART 1.
ANTHONY, EDWARD M.; AND OTHERS
THIS BEGINNING TEXT PRESENTS THE ESSENTIALS OF THAI PRONUNCIATION AND GRAMMAR IN A FORMAT GEARED TO REGULAR COLLEGE LANGUAGE COURSE SCHEDULING. THE COURSE CONSISTS OF TWO VOLUMES, BOOK I, PART 1 (LESSONS 1-14) AND BOOK I, PART 2 (LESSONS 15-25), PROVIDING MATERIAL FOR TWO UNIVERSITY SEMESTERS OF CLASSROOM AND LABORATORY WORK. BASED ON A CONTRASTIVE ANALYSIS OF ENGLISH AND THAI, AND DESIGNED FOR USE WITH AURAL-ORAL TEACHING METHODS, THE LESSONS CONSIST OF SECTIONS ON PRONUNCIATION, GRAMMAR, AND VOCABULARY, AND A DIALOG AND SUMMARY. THE THAI MATERIALS ARE TRANSCRIBED IN A PHONEMIC "LEARNERS' ALPHABET" AND LESSONS 8 TO 25 INCLUDE SHORT SECTIONS ON TRADITIONAL THAI CALLIGRAPHY. ACCOMPANYING TAPES WERE DEVELOPED TO PROVIDE EXTENSIVE DRILLS IN PRONUNCIATION. IF THE TEXT IS USED WITHOUT THESE TAPES THE TEACHER MAY CONSTRUCT SIMILAR DRILLS ON THE MODEL OF THE EXAMPLES PROVIDED IN THE TEXT. AT THE TIME THIS TWO-VOLUME TEXT WAS WRITTEN, THE AUTHORS (EDWARD M. ANTHONY, DEBORAH P. FRENCH, AND UDOM WAROTAMASIKKHADIT) WERE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH, PITTSBURGH, PA. 15213. (JD)
