The Influence of Linguistics: Plus and Minus.
Bolinger, Dwight
This paper presents a survey of the development of linguistics and the influence of linguistics on second language learning. Emphasis is given to the era beginning with language instruction during World War II to the present day. The influence of structural linguistics is described. The resulting audiolingual approach is also considered and evaluated. The resurgence of traditional grammar accompanying the development of transformation theory and a cognitive approach is discussed. The author considers the contributions as well as the shortcomings of the theories and states that the element most severely neglected by linguistic theory is meaning. (VM)
