Teaching General Semantics: A Collection of Lesson Plans for College and Adult Classes.
Morain, Mary S., Ed.
Lectures, outlines, and class exercises are collected from 16 experienced teachers of general semantics in colleges, adult education, and management training. Among the subject areas explored in the sample lessons are high-level abstractions, extensional-intensional meanings, the "is" of identity, listening, classification, labeling, general semantics and literature, inference-observation confusions, general semantics for the manager, language and culture, and relation of perception to verbal meaning, and the application of general semantics to reaction patterns.
