The Principles of Language-Study. Language and Language Learning [Series], Number 5.
Palmer, Harold E.
As a reissue of a popular book written in the 1920's on the principles of language study, this work is included in a series of publications devoted to language and language learning. The methodology prescribed centers upon nine fundamental principles: (1) initial preparation, (2) habit forming, (3) accuracy, (4) gradation, (5) proportion, (6) concreteness, (7) interest, (8) order of progression, and (9) multiple line approach. The basic distinction between the intellectual understanding of language theory and the acquisition of language skills underlies introductory chapters treating psychological factors and principles of language learning and teaching. A synopsis of each of the 16 chapters is provided. (RL)
