Situating Literacy within Traditions of Communicative Competence.
Applied Linguistics, v10 n2 p171-81 Jun 1989
Investigates some of the affinities between the traditions of communicative competence and literacy studies by examining the historical and current use of ethnographic methodology in such studies. Describes how communicative competence theory is "branching out" into communicative approaches to second language pedagogy, mingling both psychological and sociological views of language. (Author/CB)
