Linguistics-Reading Dialogue.
Wardhaugh, Ronald
Reading Teacher, v21 n5 p432-41 Feb 68
Three principles are integral to any reading theory which provides reading teachers and researchers with the linguistic explanatory power required by linguistic theory. A clear understanding of language is dependent on the knowledge of what language is and how it works. There is an important distinction between competence and performance; most language is rule-governed behavior. Although no definition of reading is offered, the concept of reading is offered, the concept of reading as high speed recognition is rejected. Studies are cited which trace the development of linguistic study and define and exemplify the three principles. References are listed. (BS)
