Linguistics, A Key to Composition?
Oickle, Eileen M.
Maryland English Journal, v8 n1 p5-7, 10 F 1969
When students inductively study linguistic patterns and then apply their understanding to achieve sentence variety, their interest in composition is heightened and their writing styles improve. Through examples in music and in nonsense and model sentences, students became aware of their language's basic structural patterns (subject-verb word order) and, by developing skills in varying these patterns, they are able to achieve greater sophistication in their written expression.
