A Marriage Waiting to Happen: Computers and Process Writing

The process writing movement, let by educators such as Donald Graves, Lucy Calkins, Nancie Atwell, and Donald Murray, has been a driving force in the way teachers approach writing instruction for nearly 20 years. During the same 20-year period, computers have evolved in astonishing ways; complex mainframes have morphed into malleable educational tools that, in many schools, have become part of the fabric of classroom life.

CLT in China

Communicative language teaching (CLT) is an innovation in English language teaching (ELT). CLT emerged as a new teaching approach in Britain in the 1970s. When it was introduced into China in the 1990s, it met with considerable resistance. After the efforts of the educational authorities, it was accepted by many teachers. This essay will briefly describe the measures taken to overcome the resistance and to ensure CLT was used effectively.

English Past Simple & Present Perfect in Relation to Thai Learners

Past simple and present perfect are two areas of English grammar that are often introduced to Thai learners at an early stage of any language programme in English. However many Thai learners seem to have repeated difficulties using and distinguishing between the two even at an advanced level. I will try to illustrate a variety of the problems that lead to such difficulties. Not the least of these is that Thai is a ‘tenseless’ language.

He goes and I’m like: The new Quotatives re-visited

The new quotatives, like and go, have assumed quite a number of functions outside the quotative frame. So far, all models proposed to explain their polyfunctionality rely on the postulate of unidirectionality in grammaticalization. Based on the findings of Lakoff (1987), this article proposes an alternative model for like and shows the importance of a radial functional network for the interpretation of like and go's synchronic uses.

Regional variation in the English verb qualifier system

Nonstandard dialects often use the same form for past tense and past participle of irregular verbs for which the standard language has distinct forms. One possible reason would be that some speakers have a nonstandard system of verb qualifiers (tense, mood, and aspect markers) in which the past tense/past participle distinction is functionally redundant.
