Is There Still a Place for Linguistics in the Foreign Language and Literature Curriculum?
Thomas, Jean-Jacques
ADFL Bulletin, v30 n1 p25-29 Fall 1998
Assesses the ambiguous relationship between linguistics and foreign language teaching, noting that budget cuts in foreign language departments usually mean loss of linguistics and literature, and bemoaning the loss of language teaching in higher education based on formal elements of language (grammar, syntax, morphology) in favor of a communicative approach that favors functionality and cultural discourse.
