Interpretation-Based Grammar Teaching.
Ellis, Rod
System, v21 n1 p69-78 Feb 1993
In contrast to the usual approach to teaching grammar, this article argues for a comprehension-based approach. Based on a model of second-language acquisition, it examines a number of possible goals for grammar instruction (e.g., to promote "intake" of new grammatical features by helping learners notice input features and comprehend the meaning). Empirical studies are cited. (17 references) (Author/LB)
