Project for a Contrastive Analysis of the Sound Systems, Grammars, and Lexicons of Polish and English. Final Report.
This report presents a contrastive analysis of the phonological and grammatical systems of English and Polish. The analysis is intended as a resource in teaching Polish to speakers of English. Consequently, areas of special difficulty for the English-speaking learner are stressed: the phonology of segmental phonemes, the morphology of nouns, noun phrases, verbs, and verb phrases. An outline of basic Polish and English sentence patterns is given. Both grammar and phonology are discussed from a traditional-structural viewpoint, although the section on grammar requires some knowledge of terms belonging to the transformational generative theory. Chapter one deals with phonology (segmental and suprasegmental phonemes), and chapter two deals with morphology and syntax. The bibliography lists 69 items where specific learning problems are discussed at length. These items may be particularly useful in obtaining more theoretical elaboration or for preparing sets of exercises concerning specific Polish structures. (Author/AM)
