Linguistic Models, Pedagogical Grammars, and ESL Composition.
Saksena, Anuradha
IRAL, v22 n2 p137-43 May 1984
Examines the negative consequences of using pedagogical grammars of English dominated by theoretical models which affect English as a second language composition. Limitations of these "models" include: lack of broad vocabulary, semantically "empty" verbs, and an emphasis on the use of awkward grammatical structures, which are regarded as more advanced. Suggests integrating composition principles into the pedagogical grammar drills. (SL)
