Kielitiede ja Kielenopetus. Linguistics and Language Teaching. Jyvaskyla Contrastive Studies. Reports from the Department of English, No. 5.
This volume contains 6 selected papers from the First Finnish Summer School of Linguistics, held in Jyvaskyla in June of 1977. The School was organized to create a new forum for postgraduate training of professors in Finland, and for exchange of information about trends in linguistic research. The theme of this first meeting was "language instruction and linguistics," with emphasis on pragmatics and constructive linguistics. "Semantic Syntax," by G. Radden, discusses a semantic approach toward teaching English grammar. "Contrastive Linguistics and Its Pedagogical Application," by T. P. Krzeszowski, discusses the development of contrastive analysis and its influence on the development of pedagogical grammars. "Communicative and Discursive Competence in Interaction," by P. Riley, reports on a course on pragmatics and discourse analysis given at the school. K. Wiik discusses briefly "Stress and Intonation" (in Finnish). "Contextual Acceptability and Textual Fit," by N. E. Enkvist, is a brief discussion of sentence structure, contextualization, and elicitation exercises. K. Sajavaara discusses "Graduate Training in Languages and Linguistics" (in Finnish). (AM)
