This book "supplies a vocabulary of English words and idiomatic phrases 'arranged … according to the ideas which they express'. The thesaurus, continually expanded and updated, has always remained in print, but this reissued first edition shows the impressive breadth of Roget's own knowledge and interests."
This volume gives an up-to-date view of international research on the practice and theory of language teaching. It shows the relevance of grammar research to the demands of language teaching today, set between German lessons, teacher training and study of the German language. It also contributes to a confrontation of established views of grammar work at school and in lessons with current linguistic approaches.
