Proceedings of the Annual Meeting of ACTFL: Session on Linguistics and the Language Teacher (Chicago, December 28, 1967).
Banathay, Bela H., Ed.
The first half of the proceedings report is a transcript of the keynote address by Victor Hanzeli, and the second portion features remarks by other discussants, including Dwight Bolinger and James McClafferty. While Mr. Hanzeli's discussion centers on the relationship between linguistics and the language teacher, he offers background information on (1) the history and effectiveness of the audiolingual method, (2) the language skill learning order, native language use, and descriptivist-transformationist disputes, and (3) various other psychological learning theories. Additional remarks on these themes are offered, in less detail, by the other participants. (AF)
