Semantics in Teaching Introductory Physics.
Williams, H. Thomas
American Journal of Physics, v67 n8 p670-80 Aug 1999
Contends that the large vocabulary used for precise purposes in physics contains many words that have related but potentially confusing meanings in everyday usage. Analyzes the treatment of Newton's Laws of Motion in several well-known introductory textbooks for evidence of inconsistent language use. Makes teaching suggestions. (Contains 11 references.)
