Discontinuous Interlanguage Development and Its Implications for Oral Proficiency Rating Scales.
Young, Richard
Applied Language Learning, v6 n1-2 p13-26 1995
Examines two rating scales for assessment of oral proficiency and judges both as inadequate because they are based on an untenable theory of the development of proficiency in a second language and on mistaken intuitions about oral interaction. The paper concludes with a discussion of an architectural, context-dependent theory of second-language proficiency. (39 references) (Author/CK)
