Testing Authentic Language: The Problem of Meaning.
Seliger, Herbert W.
Language Testing, v2 n1 p1-15 Jun 1985
Examines ways in which meaning is extracted in authentic language contexts and claims that whatever level of language people use deviates from some putative ideal. Such deviant use of language is common to everyday conversation. Examines two common contexts in which authentic but deviant language is the medium of communication. (Author SED)
