"Colourless Green Ideas": Multiple-Choice Vocabulary Tests
Hutchings, Geoffrey
English Language Teaching, 25, 1, 68-71, Oct '70
The author uses a brief discussion of the many seemingly successful attempts to find a context for Chomsky's supposedly meaningless sentence Colorless green ideas sleep furiously," as a starting point for a discussion of devising multiple choice vocabulary tests where the correct choice is clear and unambigous.
