Applied Linguistics: A Survey for Language Teachers. Collier MacMillan Teacher's Library.
Kehoe, Monika, Ed.
This book, written for those who have no formal training in linguistics but who have an interest in language or language teaching, is meant as a practical text for use in introductory courses in Applied Linguistics. Its emphasis is on second language teaching, but it is also of interest to those who teach native speakers because it covers the entire scope of the subject. Contents include the following articles: (1) "Language Learning" by Gaston Saint-Pierre, (2) "The Historical Background of Linguistics" by Estrella Calimag, (3) "Bilingualism and the Teacher of English as a Foreign Language" by L. Bruce Barkman, (4) "Teaching Classical Languages: The Structural Approach" by C. Douglas Ellis, (5) "Teaching and Training: British Experience" by A.V.P. Elliot, and (6) "Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages" by Monika Kehoe. The introduction discusses language and culture, terminology, and schools of linguistics. The conclusion is a discussion of technological advances and their relationship to second language learning. Appended are: (1) a diagram of the speech organs, (2) a selected list of publications and materials, and (3) a list of organizations to write to for information on further language training and teaching opportunities.
