Van Campen, Joseph A.
Computer software for programed language instruction, developed in the second quarter of 1970 at Stanford's Institute for Mathematical Studies in the Social Sciences is described in this report. The software includes: (1) a PDP-10 computer assembly language for generating drill sentences; (2) a coding system allowing a large number of sentences to be used for a given vocabulary item; (3) a program for listing vocabulary words under their semantic classifications; (4) a string-manipulation language for the PDP-10 to minimize storage requirements for language instructions; (5) a program for using English language statements to locate appropriate information about a second language.
