Languages for Specific Purposes: Practice and Theory. Clcs Occasional Paper No. 19 by Meriel Bloor( Book )
1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A discussion of the practice and theory in the teaching of language for specific purposes (lsp) focuses on the ways in which the lsp experience, and especially experience in English for specific purposes (esp), compels a new evaluation of certain theoretical positions in applied linguistics and second language learning. It concludes that: (1) the major problem in identifying the theoretical base of esp stems from the confusion between a model of a theory of language and a model of a theory of language learning; (2) the success of lsp may be accounted for only when it is understood that linguistic competence comes from language in use in specific situations; (3) lsp uses teaching strategies that are incompatible with certain theories of language learning; (4) language can be learned in a variety of ways, but the use of language is learned in appropriate contexts; and (5) in most cases, the teaching of language involves much more than providing the optimum circumstances for acquisition, and the teacher is also responsible for teaching aspects of language use that must be taught even to native speakers: cultural conventions and the system and uses of literacy. Six pages of references are included. (Mse)

Playing Safe with Predictions: Hedging, Attribution and Conditions in Economic Forecasting by Pindi Makaya( Book )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Approaches used by linguists to examine the way in which speakers or writers modify their commitment to the propositional content of their utterances are discussed, and it is noted that a frequent criticism is the failure of inexperienced speakers or writers to modulate their utterances properly. This paper considers economic reports and in particular the forecasts that are their key features. Economics forecasters are shown to have three ways of modifying their commitment to a prediction: by hedging, using such modal verbs as "may" or other lexical items such as "possibly"; by attribution; and by specifying conditions. Examples of each are discussed. It is concluded that since forecasting is such an important part of economics activity outside the academic area, a clear understanding of its form and function is important for teachers training students working in the economics field, as well as those concerned with communications for native speaker economics. Contains 17 references. (Lb)
