Language Awareness amongst Teachers in a Central German Dialect Area.
Davies, Winifred V.
Language Awareness, v9 n3 p119-34 2000
Presents findings of a study into language awareness among teachers in an area of Germany where a Central German dialect (Pfalzisch) is spoken. Reveals that in the Mannheim Suburb of Neckarau, many parents who speak a nonstandard dialect, leave it up to schools to teach standard German. Suggests teachers should have a systematic knowledge of the divergences between their pupil's vernaculars and the standard. (Author/VWL)
