Whaddayaknow?: The Modes of Folk Linguistic Awareness.
Preston, Dennis R.
Language Awareness, v5 n1 p40-74 1996
A common approach to language awareness is through the contrast between folk and scientific knowledge, with the former getting less attention. This article highlights the modes of folk linguistic awareness, discusses it as a dynamic area of study, and advocates its value for both scientific merit and its importance to applied concerns.
