Grammar and the Spoken Language.
Carter, Ronald; McCarthy, Michael
Applied Linguistics, v16 n2 p141-58 Jun 1995
Argues that second language teaching that aims to foster speaking skills and natural spoken interaction should be based upon the grammar of spoken language, not on grammars that mainly reflect written norms. Using evidence from a mini-corpus of conversational English, it is shown that popular pedagogical grammars are deficient in conversational grammar. (44 references) (MDM)
