Language Issues: Readings for Teachers

Author(s): Diane B. Durkin


This book provides a collection of interrelated essays on language for teachers concerned with first and second language acquisition, non-standard English, the teaching of grammar, language change, and the attainment of literacy. A problem-oriented text, the book presents the various controversies surrounding each language area, offering competing disciplinary perspectives. Incorporating only the linguistic theory that has immediate classroom applicability, the book consolidates research, offers a nontechnical approach, and invites teachers to question common assumptions and practices concerning language.
