SPOKEN ENGLISH FOR TURKS.
WISE, SHELDON; AND OTHERS
"SPOKEN ENGLISH FOR TURKS," BASED ON ROBERT B. LEES'"KONUSULAN INGILIZCE" (WASHINGTON, D.C., AMERICAN COUNCIL OF LEARNED SOCIETIES, 1957), COMPRISES A GRADED AND CONTROLLED SERIES OF BEGINNING TO ADVANCED TEXTS FOR TURKISH STUDENTS OF ENGLISH AT COLLEGE PREPARATORY LEVEL. ORAL-AURAL IN APPROACH, A KEY FEATURE OF THE SERIES IS ITS USE OF A CONTRASTIVE ANALYSIS OF ENGLISH AND TURKISH. THE ELEMENTARY LEVEL TEXTS PROVIDE FOR EXTENSIVE PRACTICE IN PRONUNCIATION AND BASIC GRAMMAR STRUCTURES, PRESENTED IN PHONEMIC TRANSCRIPTION (ADAPTED FROM LEES). TURKISH EQUIVALENTS FOR THESE PRACTICES AND FOR EXPLANATORY NOTES IN THE GRAMMAR AND DRILL SECTIONS APPEAR BESIDE THE TRANSCRIPTION. CONVENTIONAL ENGLISH SPELLING IS INTRODUCED ON THE INTERMEDIATE LEVEL, AND USED EXCLUSIVELY ON THE ADVANCED LEVEL. STRUCTURAL BUILDUPS WITH GRAMMAR DRILLS ARE INTRODUCED FIRST IN EACH LESSON, AND ARE FOLLOWED BY CULMINATING DIALOGS. PATTERN PRACTICE TYPES INCLUDE REPLACEMENT, CONVERSION, AND RESPONSE DRILLS. A SPECIAL FOREWORD TO THE TEACHER IS CONTAINED IN BOOK ONE. ACCOMPANYING THE 16 STUDENT'S TEXTS ARE TAPE RECORDINGS, TWO VOCABULARIES, AN INDEX, AND A TEACHERS' GUIDE. THESE MATERIALS (THE FOURTH EDITION, REVISED) ARE PUBLISHED BY ROBERT COLLEGE, ISTANBUL, TURKEY. (AMM)
