Iberian Spanish Function Catalog. Method for Determining Language Objectives and Criteria, Volume VI.
Setzler, Hubert H., Jr.; And Others
This Iberian Spanish Function Catalog presents sentences, phrases, and patterns organized by language functions and functional categories. This catalog is part of the communication/language objectives-based system (C/LOBS), which supports the front-end analysis efforts of the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center. The C/LOBS project, which is described in 13 volumes and an executive summary, functions as a subsystem of the instructional systems development approach currently in use in the TRADOC school system. Five job/duty positions and three languages were selected for field testing and system validation. The Spanish elements listed in this catalog were collected using native informants from Madrid. The function categories are as follows: communication; engaging in social rituals; seeking and imparting factual information; reporting, expressing, or inquiring about intellectual and emotional attitudes, and getting things done (suasion).
