An Inductive Approach to the Rules of Speaking
McKay, Sandra
Modern Language Journal, 51, 8, 415-8, Dec 77
Knowing what, when and how to say something constitutes what sociolinguists call the "rules of speaking." Suggestions for using the three dimensions of language variation--setting, mode and participants--in teaching English to speakers of other languages are offered. Hopefully an awareness of systematic language variation will be fostered. (AMH)
