Campbell, P. Read
There is a great deal of speech communication work going on in western Canada, but in higher education, little direct teaching of the subject. This essential fact is the focus of this paper. The author presents an overview of Canadian history and the work of her writers, and seeks reasons for the absence of speech as a separate subject in academic curriculums. Examining the present position of Canadian verbal culture, he attends particularly to the influences of the environment, method of education, and conglomerate historical origins of the Canadian national character. The presence of a counterculture stressing naturalness of language and seeking alternate values and life styles is discussed in relation to current poetry and communication styles. (Author/LG)
