This Language-Learning Business.
Palmer, Harold E.; Redman, H. Vere
This compilation of writings, first published in 1932, provides a historical overview of early thought concerning the nature of language and language instruction. The authors, pioneers in the field of "natural" language learning, consider language as: (1) code, (2) literature, (3) conversation, (4) communication, (5) sounds, and (6) speech. In a section on learning theory, a variety of topics is discussed in 11 letters. The final section presents an outline of a language course, applying the principles discussed in the preceding portions. A biographical sketch of Palmer's life is accompanied by a listing of his publications. (RL)
