Allen, J.P.B., Ed.; Corder, S. Pit, Ed.
This volume is a collection of articles on various aspects of applied linguistics as it relates to language teaching. Chapter 1, by S. Pit Corder, entitled "Applied Linguistics and Language Teaching," gives a short, general survey of applied linguistics in language teaching. Chapters 2-5 give an account of the main concepts in what is now called theoretical linguistics. These chapters are: "Some Basic Concepts in Linguistics" by J.P.B. Allen; "Grammar and Language Teaching" by J.P.B. Allen and H.G. Widdowson;" Phonological Theory and Language Teaching" by Gillian Brown; and "Semantics and Language Teaching" by Paul Van Buren. The sociological and psychological approaches to language are dealt with in the final three chapters: "Sociolinguistics and Language Teaching" by C. Criper and H.G. Widdowson; "Psychology and Language Learning" by Elisabeth Ingram; and "Adult Theories, Child Strategies and their Implications for the Language Teacher" by Ruth Clark. (Author/AM)
