Developing Professional-level Language Proficiency
Editors
Betty Lou Leaver, San Diego State University, CA Education
Boris Shekhtman, Specialized Language Training Center, Maryland and
Howard University, Washington, DC

This book examines approaches to teaching students who aim to make the
leap from "advanced" or "superior" proficiency in a foreign language
to "near-native" ability. While there are an abundance of publications
on classroom techniques and methods for lower levels of instruction,
almost nothing exists about the transition, which is vital for those
who intend to use foreign languages in high-level arenas. Compiled by
leading practitioners in this area of foreign language teaching, the
book fills the gap for those developing programs at the "advanced to
distinguished" level.

African American English
A Linguistic Introduction
Lisa J. Green, University of Texas, Austin

This authoritative introduction to African American English (AAE) is
the first textbook to look at the grammar as a whole. Clearly
organized, it describes patterns in the sentence structure, sound
system, word formation and word use. It examines education, speech
events in the secular and religious world, and the use of AAE in
literature and the media to create black images. It includes exercises
to accompany each chapter and is essential reading for students in
linguistics, education, anthropology, African American studies and
literature.

Contents:

Introduction; 1. Lexicons and meaning; 2. Syntax Part 1. Verbal
markers in AAE; 3. Syntax Part 2. Syntactic and morphosyntactic
properties in AAE; 4. Phonology of AAE; 5. Speech events and rules of
interaction; 6. AAE in literature; 7. AAE in media; 8. Attitudes and
education.
