WHAT IS LANGUAGE, AND OTHER TEACHING UNITS FOR GRADES SEVEN THROUGH TWELVE. INDIANA UNIVERSITY ENGLISH CURRICULUM STUDY SERIES.
JENKINSON, EDWARD B.
THIS COLLECTION OF LANGUAGE UNITS FOR GRADES 7-12 WAS PREPARED TO MAKE AVAILABLE, TO BOTH TEACHERS AND STUDENTS, MATERIALS DEMONSTRATING SOME OF THE INTERESTING SUBJECT MATTERS OF LANGUAGE. UNITS CONTAIN DESCRIPTIONS OF COURSE CONTENT AND SUCCESSFUL TEACHING METHODS, SUGGESTED DISCUSSION QUESTIONS, AND EXERCISES FOR THE TEACHER'S USE IN PRESENTING THE SUBJECT MATTER. PROCEDURES ARE SUGGESTED BY WHICH STUDENTS MAY SPECULATE ABOUT THE NATURE OF LANGUAGE AND FORMULATE INDIVIDUAL DEFINITIONS OF IT. THE FOLLOWING UNITS ARE INCLUDED--"WHAT IS LANGUAGE,""SO WHAT'S A DICTIONARY FOR,""HOW WORDS ARE FORMED,""HOW WORDS CHANGE MEANING IN TIME AND CONTEXT,""AN INTRODUCTION TO PHONETIC ALPHABETS AND TO MORPHEMES THROUGH PREFIXES AND SUFFIXES,""AMERICAN DIALECTS,""WHY WORRY ABOUT MEANING,""A SUGGESTION FOR A UNIT ON THE HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE,""LEXICOGRAPHY FROM CAWDREY TO 'WEBSTER'S THIRD'," AND "NOTHING MOVES WITHOUT TRANSLATION." THIS FINAL UNIT PRESENTS EVIDENCE THAT READING A TRANSLATED WORK INVOLVES ESTHETIC AND CRITICAL PROBLEMS DIFFERENT FROM THOSE ENCOUNTERED WHEN READING A WORK IN THE ORIGINAL LANGUAGE. APPENDIXES CONTAIN ESSAYS ON LANGUAGE USAGE, LINGUISTIC CHANGE, ENGLISH LANGUAGE HISTORY, AND ROOTS AND COMBINING FORMS. THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE FOR $2.95 (CLOTHBOUND, $6.75) FROM THE INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS, 10TH AND MORTON STREETS, BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA 47401. (RD)
