CUM LAUDE: A New Approach in Designing Computer-Assisted Language Programs.
Urion, Henry K.
CUM LAUDE (Computerized Understanding of Morphology--Language Acquisition under Development in Education) is a unique attempt to develop a system of computer programs enabling a machine to "understand" the grammatical relationships between the various parts of speech in a natural language. In response to an analysis of current computer-assisted language instruction (CALI) programs, it is argued that the full capability of a computer in drilling students on elementary language grammar will be attained when a greater understanding of the morphology of languages is built into the computer. Such an approach ultimately would enable a computer not only to instruct a language dynamically in an educational capacity, but also to make available its usefulness to those language teachers not well trained in machine languages. This project includes the exemplary development of a system of programs which teaches the verb formations of three languages: French, German, and English. The system is flexible in that the student has control over the selection of the verbs and tenses upon which he will be drilled. (Author)
