Trends in Foreign-Language Teaching with Implications for the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language.
Ney, James W.
English Language Teaching Journal, v34 n2 p85-90 Jan 1980
Discusses the implications for language teaching of Chomskyean and transformational theory. The notions of deep structure, linguistic theory building, and inutility of a corpus are far less interesting than the view of language as rule-governed behavior and language learning as hypothesis-testing. Rationalist v behaviorist theories are discussed. (PJM)
