SPEECH-COMMUNICATION LEARNING SYSTEM. VOLUME ONE, LEARNER'S HANDBOOK.
HEINBERG, PAUL; AND OTHERS
THIS PROGRAMED "LEARNER'S HANDBOOK" IS DESIGNED TO BE USED IN THE "SPEECH-COMMUNICATION LEARNING SYSTEM" IN THE SPEECH COMMUNICATION CENTER AT THE UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII. THE PURPOSE OF THE COURSE, INTENDED PRIMARILY FOR SPEAKERS OF NON-STANDARD ENGLISH DIALECT IN HAWAII, IS TO "DEVELOP A STYLE OF SPEECH WHICH IS INTELLIGIBLE AND ACCEPTABLE IN A WIDE VARIETY OF SITUATIONS THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES." THE MAJORITY OF LEARNERS COMPLETE THE ENTIRE "LEARNING SYSTEM" IN 10 TO 15 HOURS, USING THE PROGRAMED MATERIAL AND TAPES WITH GUIDANCE FROM A "TUTOR" AND A PROGRESS "EVALUATOR." VARIABLES SELECTED FOR TESTING ARE--(1) EYE-CONTACT, (2) LOUDNESS, (3) VOICE-QUALITY, (4) PITCH, (5) RATE OF SENTENCE PRODUCTION, AND (6) ARTICULATION. THE APPROACH IS INNOVATIVE, EMPHASIZING AN AWARENESS OF PARALINGUISTICS, RATHER THAN THE LINGUISTIC CONTENT AND FORM OF ENGLISH. (AMM)
