Three Analogies.
Bolinger, Dwight L.
Three examples are given of cases where differences between Spanish and English syntax and intonation patterns are taught best through direct translation. Grammatical difficulties caused by "gustar" are overcome through the use of translation using "appeal" rather than "please". Similarly, problems for native speakers of English arising with "poder" are resolved. The relation of Spanish statement intonation to English commands is also examined. (RL)
