The Organization and Objectives of the Project. The Yugoslav Contrastive Analysis Project, Serbo-Croatian and English.
This pamphlet describes the organization and objectives of the Yugoslav Serbo-Croatian-English contrastive analysis project. Interference is common in language contact of any sort, and it is assumed that interference can be predicted on the basis of contrastive analysis, and that the results thus obtained can be used in planning better teaching materials and methods for foreign language instruction. The main objective of the project is an examination of all systemic differences and similarities that exist between Serbo-Croatian and English at all levels of linguistic description. The results of the analysis and of the structural comparison are intended to serve as a foundation for improved teaching of English in Yugoslavia and Serbo-Croatian in America and Great Britain. It is hoped that the project will also contribute to linguistic theory in general, and to the science of contrastive analysis in particular. Three types of publications will be produced by the project: (1) periodic reports, (2) studies, and (3) teaching materials. (Author/CLK)
