Will We. . .? Thai Dam Resource Book.
Murphy, Richard, Ed.; And Others
This resource book is intended as an aid to persons working with Thai Dam refugees. To help the language teacher, some differences between Lao and English are discussed, specifically tonal inflections, positioning, declension of pronouns, conjugation of verbs, interrogatives, classifiers and predicate adjectives. An outline of cultural differences contrasts the Laotian views of self and the world with the American. This is followed by a brief narrative on Thai Dam history and education. A series of useful English dialogues with Lao translations is then presented for the language teacher's assistance. They may be used in repetition, substitution, conversation or creation drills. The dialogues illustrate English grammatical features and useful vocabulary. A vocabulary list of English words with Lao translations is the final section. (CHK)
