Papers and Studies in Contrastive Linguistics, Volume 4. The Polish-English Contrastive Project.
Fisiak, Jacek, Ed.
This collection of twenty-six papers is the fourth resulting from the Polish-English Contrastive Project. The overall purpose of the project is to prepare a Polish-English contrastive grammar and to develop pedagogical materials. The basic model used for research is the transformational generative one. Among the papers on phonology, topics such as stress, intonation, distinctive features, and consonant clusters are discussed, as well as issues in contrastive phonology and phonetics. Clitics, nominals, ellipsis, and comparative constructions are among the topics discussed in the papers on morphology and syntax, while modal auxiliaries, verb complementation, transitive verbs, and the derivation of infinitives are the focus of papers concerned directly with verb syntax and morphology. Syntactic ambiguity is discussed as it relates to teaching written English to Polish students, and exercises for intermediate and advanced Polish learners of English are provided. A bibliography of English-Polish contrastive studies in Poland follows the papers. (CLK)
