Second Language Interpersonal Communication: Paradigm and Praxis.
Acton, William R.
Language Learning, v33 n5 p193-215 1983
Addresses one problem brought about by the confusion around the concept of communicative competence and the communicative approach to second language teaching. Considers the belief that communication, as opposed to language, should be the conceptual center of second language instruction, and then suggests a framework for representing the implications and consequences of that belief.
