A critical look at the Communicative Approach (Michael Swan)A critical look at the Communicative Approach (Michael Swan)

This article examines some of the more theoretical ideas underlying the Communicative Approach. These include the belief that we should teach use as well as meaning, and some attitudes regarding the teaching of skills and strategies. A second article will deal with more pedagogical aspects of the approach, especially the idea of a semantic syllabus and the question of authenticity in materials and methodology.

Contrastive Lexical Semantics

Contrastive Lexical SemanticsContrastive Lexical Semantics

Contrastive lexical semantics was the main topic of an International Workshop at the University of Münster in May, 1997. It was addressed from different perspectives, from the pragmatic perspective of a corpus-oriented approach as well as from the model-oriented perspective of sign theoretic linguistics. Whereas the rule-governed model-oriented approach is necessarily restricted to subsets of vocabulary, the pragmatic approach aims to analyse and describe the whole vocabulary-in-use.
