Micmac Teaching Grammar. Preliminary Version.
Delisle, Gilles L.; Metallic, Manny L.
This teaching grammar is designed primarily for university-level students, but may also be used for adult courses, high school classes, and in junior colleges. The text takes the transformational-generative approach to language, in which the notions of system, derivation, and relation are emphasized rather than categorization and classification. The materials are structured so that the student can infer the rules that constitute the system of the language. Sections on Micmac orthography and the reading and writing of Micmac precede the twenty lessons. Each lesson has basically the same format: (1) conversation, (2) introduction to the systematic variations of the new material, (3) conversation, (4) phrases to be used in class, (5) counting, (6) exercises, and (7) notes to the student, including grammatical and cultural information to be used for reference purposes. Guidelines for using the text are provided. A list of the contents of the tape recordings that accompany the text is also provided. (CLK)
