Bilingual Education: Current Perspectives. Volume 2: Linguistics.
Tucker, G. Richard; And Others
Recognizing a need for an objective, multidisciplinary and comprehensive look at the field of bilingual education, the Office of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the Center for Applied Linguistics cooperated in a state-of-the-art study of the field. State-of-the-art papers were commissioned in four general areas concerning bilingual education: social science, languages and linguistics, law, and education. Each paper formed the central focus for a separate conference at which it was discussed and elaborated upon by specialists from various fields within a given discipline. This volume is the second in a series of four volumes that present a collection of the major papers and the viewpoints of the discussants. The focus of the volume is linguistics. The state-of-the-art paper is"The Linguistic Perspective," by G. Richard Tucker, and the viewpoints include: "Linguistic Theory," by Charles A. Ferguson; "Teaching Bilingual Children," by Gustavo Gonzalez; "Second Language Learning," by Evelyn R. Hatch; and "Research," by Christina Bratt Paulston. A bibliography concludes the volume. (CLK)
