Linguistics is much more than a study reserved for academicians. Linguistics has real-life applications to effective teaching-now more than ever. With the increased emphasis on phonemic awareness and phonics in the teaching of reading, teachers need to understand how language works. When teachers are familiar with basic linguistic concepts, they are better prepared to make decisions about how to teach reading, spelling, phonics, and grammar to all students, including English language learners.

Teachers are encouraged to build on ELL students' existing linguistic and cultural background knowledge, to explain the many idiosyncrasies of the English language and U.S. school culture, and to involve students in their own learning, encouraging them to express themselves in many ways including in their native language. The hands-on text features sample lesson plans and children's literature that can be used to help ELL students develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in school.

Grammar for Teachers

A Guide to American English for Native and Non-Native Speakers

Author: Andrea DeCapua

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 3319339168

Category: Education

Page: 439

View: 2686

Updated and revised with more examples and expanded discussions, this second edition continues the aim of providing teachers with a solid understanding of the use and function of grammatical structures in American English. The book avoids jargon and presents essential grammatical structures clearly and concisely. Dr. DeCapua approaches grammar from a descriptive rather than a prescriptive standpoint, discussing differences between formal and informal language, and spoken and written English. The text draws examples from a wide variety of authentic materials to illustrate grammatical concepts. The many activities throughout the book engage users in exploring the different elements of grammar and in considering how these elements work together to form meaning. Users are encouraged to tap into their own, often subconscious, knowledge of grammar to consciously apply their knowledge to their own varied teaching settings. The text also emphasizes the importance of understanding grammar from the perspective of English language learners, an approach that allows teachers to better appreciate the difficulties these learners face. Specific areas of difficulties for learners of English are highlighted throughout.

Dante Alighieri: De vulgari eloquentia

Für sein unvollendet gebliebenes sprachphilosophisches Traktat "De vulgari eloquentia" (1303-1304), in dem die italienische Volkssprache auf Grund ihrer Natürlichkeit erstmals über das Lateinische gestellt wird, hat Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) im Gegensatz zu seinem Meisterwerk, der "Divina Commedia", nicht die Volkssprache selbst, sondern die lateinische Sprache gewählt. 1529 ließ Gian Giorgio Trissino eine italienische Übersetzung des bis dahin verschollenen Traktats erscheinen.Der vorliegende Band vereinigt Dantes lateinischen Urtext mit Trissinos Version und stellt diesen beiden Fassungen eine neue deutsche Übersetzung gegenüber, um – besonders für Studierende der Romanistik – die Arbeit mit diesem zentralen Text der Italianistik in Zukunft zu erleichtern. Vorangestellt ist ein einführendes Kapitel über die Prinzipien der Textedition.
