Subject: Question: Paper on code-switching by John Paolillo


I am writing on behalf of a student of mine who is doing her MA thesis
on code-switching in CMC; she would be very interested in having
access to a paper given by John Paolillo on March 8 1995 at a
conference on Computer-mediated Discourse Analysis at Georgetown
University. The title of the paper is 'Code-switching on the Internet:
Punjabi and English Soc.culture.punjab'. We would be very grateful if
you could reply at either of the following addresses:

y.b.mohd-yusoflangc.hull.ac.uk
s.tsiplakoulangc.hull.ac.uk


Many thanks,,

Message 2: Query: grammar on the web

Subject: Query: grammar on the web


Hello, all. I am looking for websites about English grammar. I am
interested in sites that include the traditional approach, but also in
sites that incorporate functionalist or more linguistically-based
descriptions. I would also be interested in anything available on
CD-ROM.

My purpose is to find supplementary materials for a course I will be
teaching this Fall for future teachers of elementary and high school
language arts. It is intended to be a review of basic English
grammar, mechanics, and usage. I need good exercises that students can
access, self-correct, and perhaps find explanations for why the right
answer is the right answer (and perhaps why the most logical wrong
answer is the wrong answer).

I will be explaining traditional grammar as it is found in
currently-used school texts, but I want to frame this in functionalism
to the greatest extent possible, and also want to find in-context
exercises if any are available.

Please note that this course will be for students who have had little
to no linguistics, so sites that rely heavily on advanced linguistic
theory will not be of use to me.

I will post a summary of responses. I am familiar with the U. of
Ottowa's Hypergrammar site already. I may use it and/or another site
that I find as a result of this search.

Thanks for any help!

Subject: TESOL Texts

 Could anyone suggest texts they have found useful for teaching the
following graduate courses: teaching second language through content
 teaching English as a second language:
				theory and practice 

I am trying to widen my scope concerning the texts I use for these
courses.
 Thanks.
