Contrastive Analysis and the Classroom Teacher.
Fowler, Dennis G.
British Journal of Language Teaching, v22 n3 p167-72 Win 1984
Discusses the history, framework, and psychological basis of contrastive analysis. Presents three main points of view of contrastive analysis: (1) predictive (strong), (2) retrospective (weak), and (3) intralingual error analysis (a rejection of the contrastive analysis hypothesis). Suggests that the second viewpoint is more applicable and useful to the language teacher. (SED)
