An Introduction to Conversational Kriol. Work Papers of SIL-AAB, Series B, Volume 5.
Sandefur, John R.; Sandefur, Joy L.
A course in conversational Australian Kriol begins with a discussion of language learning and an outline of the course design. Thirty-five lessons follow, to be used with cassette recordings (not included). Each lesson, except the review lessons, has six sections: a conversation sample, vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, useful expressions, and supplementary information. The first three sections are interrelated and are to be drilled as a unit. The two review lessons each consist of a story, questions, pronunciation exercises, and useful expressions. An appended essay looks at preconceptions about language and relates anecdotes about characteristics of the English language. (MSE)
