Techniques in Language Control.
Richards, I. A.; Gibson, Christine
This book attempts to introduce the reader to techniques of communication control, in listening and speaking as well as reading and writing. To this end, the use of a simplified vocabulary called Every Man's English is advocated. Section 2 presents some principles of Every Man's English. The contribution of Ogden's Basic English, a core vocabulary of everyday English words, is discussed, as well as the relation of Basic English to Every Man's. Some basic ingredients of Every Man's are discussed in chapter 5. Chapter 6 discusses syntactic-semantic relationships between words. Chapter 7 examines derivations, compositions, cognates, functions, meanings of words, and how words interact. Chapter 8 gives a sample of Every Man's at work in semantic description. Finally, chapter 9 shows how clear, simple language leads to clearer thought. (Author/AM)
