Quantum Linguistics: A Response to David Mallows.
Hill, Kent A.
ELT Journal, v57 n2 p175-78 Apr 2003
Responds to an earlier article that illustrated how metaphorically applying chaos and complexity theory to language teaching, second language acquisition, and the observed lesson can alter perspectives about how these things are viewed. Suggests that chaos and complexity theory could also help see the following areas in a new light: syllabus design, focus on forms, and the zone of proximal development. (Author/VWL)
