X-Word Grammar, a course for teachers

Email Richard at rabend761@aol.com

Click here for the classwork, exercises, and answers for Richard's course.

 

I've been teaching since 1973 and have been at MPC since 1980.  I graduated Teachers College, Columbia University with an MA in TESOL (1977) and an MEd in Applied Linguistics (1979).  Obviously, a lot has changed since then, but I've kept current by reading and following developments in the field.  My own particular interests are syntax and evolutionary psychology and related topics in Linguistics.

 

Currently, I am teaching at Monterey Peninsula College, California.   For Spring, my three online classes are  LING 10 - "Foundations of Language", LING 15 - "Introduction to Linguistics", and LING/WOMN 25 - "Introduction to Language and Gender."   I am also teaching LING 10 - "Foundations of Language" on campus.   Just click on a link.  --Richard

WOW!! Wonderful to know this approach is still alive and kicking. I thought Sector Analysis died with Robert Livingston Allen. Are there any textbooks in print? Thanx for keeping it going.
