Word Order Drills With Coursewriter.
Milstein, Barney M.
Drills in German word order were developed by use of random generation of sentences coupled with the Ohio State edit function. Differences between English and German word orders are a cause of interference in the learning of German structural patterns. German word order may be manipulated in some situations and must be in others. Although the Coursewriter programing language can match word order by means of the word modifier, the number of different verb and person combinations which can be monitored is limited. However, combining the generation of meaningful drill sentences from pools of sentence elements allows not only effective monitoring of many possible combinations, but diagnosis of errors as well. The edit function is applied in turn to lines consisting of these elements; as an element is matched a number is substituted for it in the student buffer. A correct or incorrect answer is then matched as a number. (Author/WH)
