The Functions of Invented Sentences: A Reply to Guy Cook.
Cook, Vivian
Applied Linguistics, v23 n2 p262-69 Jun 2002
Reacts to Cook's (2001) essay on invented sentences, which argues that sentences such as "the philosopher pulled the lower jaw of the hen," have the valuable language teaching functions of providing useful language data for the student, promoting noticing and memorability, and allowing he teacher to create new sentences.
