Increasing Linguistic Self-Respect through Sentence Combining.
Chappel, James H.
This paper discusses the use of simple sentence-combining exercises as a way to show students the unlimited capacity of their own language. Using sets consisting of eight, six, four, and three sentences, no two students of the 27 in a freshman composition class produced identical rewrites of any one set. Such exercises are useful for instilling a measure of linguistic self-respect early in the course. (AA)
