The concept of Pedagogical Norm is grounded in both sociolinguistic
and psycholinguistic principles. Pedagogical Norms guide the selection
and sequencing of target language features for language teaching and
learning. This book both situates and expands on this concept
highlighting the interaction of research and pedagogy. The papers
collectively illustrate how the concept of pedagogical norm applies to
all components of language, including phonology, morphology, syntax,
and discourse. The book begins with a discussion of definitions
including papers that trace the history of the concept and define what
is meant by norms. Also included are papers that apply the concept of
pedagogical norms in specific contexts (e.g., intonation, morphology)
and to specific languages. Finally, pedagogical norms are extended
beyond the more traditional areas of grammatical competence to such
disparate areas as listening, discourse, and circumlocution.
