Ewton, Ralph W., Jr., Ed.; Ornstein, Jacob, Ed.
The eleven essays in the present volume are by faculty members at the University of Texas at El Paso and deal generally with issues peculiar to the American Southwest. It is hoped, however, that the collection contains "enough that is of universal interest to avoid the taint of parochialism." Essays discuss (1) problems involved in teaching in bilingual situations: Patricia G. Adkins, "The Linguistic Puzzle of Figurative Language and the ESL Student," and Ray Past, "Does Johnny's Teacher Need Linguistics?"; (2) questions of linguistic theory and methodology: Edward L. Blansitt, Jr., "Phonology, Grammar, and Semology," and William M. Russell, "The Inverse Dictionary: A New Tool for Linguists"; (3) Spanish in the American Southwest: Dolores Brown, "A Two-Syllable Affective Affirmation in Spoken Spanish," Jack Emory Davis, "Annotated Bibliography and American Spanish," Charles Elerick, "The Contrastive Semology of Spanish and English Verbs of Visual Perception," Jacob Ornstein, "Sociolinguistics and New Perspectives in the Study of Southwest Spanish," John M. Sharp, "The Origin of Some Non-Standard Lexical Items in the Spanish of E. Paso," and Lurline H. Coltharp, "Some Additions: Lexicon of the Tongue of the Tirilones"; and (4) American Indian languages: Don H. Burgess, "Tarahumara Phonology (Rocoroibo Dialect)." (FWB)
