Title: Applications of Universal Grammar (UG) in the EFL/ESL Classroom
Authors: Kirkwold, Lorne O.
Keywords: ESL
Universal Grammar
Issue Date: 30-Nov-2005
Publisher: 北海学園大学人文学会
Abstract: The article proposes Stern's (1983) framework for classifying issues related to instruction in order to ascertain the relevance of Universal Grammar (UG) in the EFL/ESL classroom. Issues related to: (a) L_1 transfer; (b) teaching rules and giving error correction versus presenting structures by analogy; and (c) the extent to which the focus should be content rather than language are discussed in this article, particularly as UG pertains to them. The article will be of interest especially to foreign language teachers and also second language acquisition (SLA) researchers. The author draws on some examples in English and French, but then presents his conclusion along with further issues he raises based on his recent experience in universities of the Sapporo region.
