Ordinary Language Philosophy and Composition.
Reece, Shelley C.
One way to improve composition skills and to raise the level of interest in composition is by incorporating language philosophy into the composition process. That is, a teacher might use language games as a way of teaching writing. Such games include giving orders, describing an object, reporting an event, telling a joke, asking, thanking, cursing, or praying. A student might be asked to choose a language game and then describe it using analogies, asking questions, and using analytical techniques. This process will encourage students to develop their powers of reasoning and organization. (TJ)
