Perceptions of and Perspectives on the Term "Communicative."
VanPatten, Bill
Hispania, v81 n4 p925-32 Dec 1998
Analysis of the term "communicative" as used by scholars and realized in textbooks suggests a gap between theory and practice and substantial differences between the perspectives held by scholars and those held by instructors, publishers, and others. Differences are reviewed and their sources traced to attempts to adapt the term itself to existing methodologies and training of language instructors. (Author/MSE)
