Is the Linguistic Approach an Improvement in Reading Instruction?
Wardhaugh, Ronald
Selected research studies dealing with linguistics and reading are reviewed under the following headings: (1) claims by linguists, (2) research on phoneme-grapheme correspondences, (3) research comparing linguistic approaches with basal reader approaches, (4) modified alphabets, and (5) syntax studies. It is concluded that the missing dimension in the work done thus far is the linguistic knowledge gained over the last decade. In terms of the topics of current interest to linguists, there is no linguistic approach in reading and definitely no linguistic method. There might be a linguistic perspective which could be applied by teachers to reading instruction. A bibliography is included. (RJ)
