It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Discourse and Context in Language Teaching
Subtitle: A Guide for Language Teachers
Written By: Marianne Celce-Murcia
Elite Olshtain

This book recommends that language teachers incorporate an awareness of
discourse and pragmatics in their teaching if they truly wish to implement
a communicative approach in their classrooms. After two introductory
chapters on discourse and pragmatics, the authors show how a discourse
perspective can enhance the teaching of traditional areas of linguistic
knowledge (pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary) and the teaching of
language processing skills (listening, reading, writing, and speaking).
This awareness of discourse is then carried over to curriculum development,
assessment, and classroom research. With discussion questions and
activities at the end of each chapter, this book can be used in methods
courses or in-service training programs.
