Speaking, Singing and Teaching: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Language Variation. Proceedings of the Annual Language and Linguistics Workshop (8th, Arizona State University, April 19-21, 1979).
Barkin, Florence, Ed.; Brandt, Elizabeth, Ed.
Papers presented at the Southwest Area Language and Linguistics Workshop (SWALLOW) include both theoretical and practical contributions. First and second language acquisition was studied in terms of its effects on first language, its acquisition in a bilingual classroom, and its assessment. Native American student speeches were examined in terms of implications for the teacher, the cultural factors involved in the organization of speeches, classroom implications, and integration of alternative speaking patterns in bicultural situations. Ethnomusicology and linguistics were approached through the investigation of bilingual song both in Guarani and Spanish and Quechua and Spanish. Different types of Papago and Chicano songs were analyzed. Varieties of English and code-switching were discussed and literacy, bilingualism, and pedogogical implications were investigated. Papers were presented on applications of linguistics to language teaching and theoretical concerns of language in contact were discussed. The final papers dealt with phonological descriptions of Spanish. (Author/NCR)
