Indonesian Newspaper Reader.
Harter, Joseph M.; And Others
This reader consists of 250 selections of varying lengths. No real attempt has been made to grade the selections according to difficulty for the learner except that the initial selections are shorter and represent straight reporting of such uncomplicated events as arrivals and departures and thus are fairly simple in structure. Notes explaining conventions of style or usage are interspersed throughout the text. The reader is intended for use as part of a basic course in Indonesian and as an introduction to reading. Designed to be used from the first day of class, the book does not assume any prior vocabulary knowledge. All vocabulary items are glossed on first occurrence except borrowed words whose meanings are obvious to speakers of English. A glossary providing only those English equivalents which are appropriate to the specific contexts in which the items occur is appended. (DO)
