Subject: Teaching Vocabulary Building.

I intend to write a research paper on "Teaching Vocabulary
Building". My paper will touch the following issues;

1-Analysis of existing methodology of teaching vocabulary in
Pakistan at intermediate level.

2-Needs analysis in this regard.

3-Introducing communicative approach toward the teaching of
vocabulary. (Presently G.T.M is followed)

Could you please help me providing some theoretical material
regarding communicative approach toward vocabulary teaching?

Tariq Saeed.

Message 2: cohesion and coherence

Subject: cohesion and coherence
Dear listers,
 I am a student doing analysis on English speech of 
NNS in terms of the cohesion and coherence by the 
model of Beaugrande and Dressler (l981). Also, the planning
and unplanning of the speeches are to be discussed. Compared
with the cohesive analysis of Halliday and Hasan (1976), 
Beaugrande and Dressler's model seems less frequently used. 
Is there any related research derived from their model, 
especially focused on spoken language? I appreciate any 
relevant information. Thank you very much in advance.

Dear Linguists,

Instruction does make a Difference', in Studies in SLA, 13: 431-469
Do you know of any comments or published responses on this article?
For my research on the effect of instruction on SLA it was
interesting to read, since Doughty considered a lot of important
issues in her study, but it also left a few questions, e.g. were 10
days enough to ensure that the instructed features had really been
If anybody has read this article and has an oppinion on it or knows
about further comments, I would be glad to hear from you!
 Thanks, Tanja Langhorst
