Selinker, Larry, Ed.; And Others
The papers in this "Festschrift" are theoretical and descriptive in nature as well as practical. The first section of the book contains theoretical papers dealing with the following topics: criteria for course design, logical argumentation, a taxonomic approach to scientific vocabulary, function of a type of particle in a chemistry textbook, verb forms and functions in some medical texts, anaphoric functions of some demonstrative noun phrases in scientific and technological English, tense usage, and a comparative analysis of English and Romanian in scientific and technical discourse. The second section deals with designing modular materials, developing a reading curriculum, subjects and objects in English for special purposes (ESP) materials, thoughts from the classroom on ESP materials, interpretation of "information transfer," the case study as needs assessment in ESP, and processing learning texts. The third section is a bibliography of Louis Trimble's works. (AMH)
