Two Linguists on Freshman English: Pressure from Below.
Francis, W. Nelson
College Composition and Communication, v15 n3 p147-148 Oct 1964
The importance of improving English instructors' attitudes toward three broadly classified forms of language expression is examined. The author notes an increased interest in languages among college freshmen and defines the differences between (1) artistic, (2) playful, and (3) intellectual expression. Pressure resulting from advanced teaching methodology and newly developed curriculums, particularly in linguistics, in the secondary school will be felt increasingly as student expectations concerning English faculty attitudes are not realized in the colleges.
