The New English.
Chisholm, William
This book is an introduction to the "new" English which utilizes knowledge gained from studies and basic research to achieve practical, intelligent goals for instruction in English. The first chapter defines the new English as a study that leads students to a critical appreciation of all forms of communication, that provides them with insights into the structure of English and language in general, and that frees them to discover their own styles in speaking and writing. In the second chapter, some of the more important things known about language--e.g., its evolution, its systematic qualities, and its arbitrary conventions--are pointed out. The third chapter describes the work of the linguist and the science of language study, and presents a model of structural grammar for analyzing sentences. A description of transformational-generative grammar and the application of structural and transformational grammars in the classroom, particularly for the analysis of intonation and the teaching of dialectology, are discussed in the fourth chapter. The final chapter takes up the new aims and techniques that have been developed for teaching literature, composition, and reading. (LH)
