WHITE ERNEST E - Thought and Expression

Title: Thought and Expression
Description: Edward Arnold, UK, 1944. Reprint, Hardcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. 176 pages, size 7.25 inches tall by 4.75 inches. ' This book is based on an experiment carried out with thirteen-year-old London schoolboys. For many years the teaching of grammar in elementary schools has been in an unsatisfactory state. Several experiments have been made to show that grammar teaching does not effect improvement in composition work; and in the schools the subject is often disliked and crowded out of the curriculum. The author in his experiment, which was spread over two years, tried to show that grammar teaching can be made interesting and can effect improvement in English usage. For this purpose he incorporated some logic with his grammar, for, as Jespersen says, however blurred the outlines may sometimes be, the main general classifications expressed by grammatical forms will always be found to have some logical foundation. The experiment was completely successful, and all the material used is incorporated in this book. For convenience it is divided into three parts : (i) Grammar, (2) Logic, (3) Additional Revisionary Exercises ; but the parts are not intended to be consecutive. Parts I and II should be taken side by side, and Part III as need arises. In Part III, Group 11, there are one or two exercises which are really difficult. These may be omitted if desired, but all the exercises have been tested with thirteen-year-old boys, and even the most difficult puzzles are worth while if only to stimulate discussion. Throughout the book the aim has been to keep explanatory text to a minimum and to teach as much as possible through exercises. It is hoped that the teacher will find the book particularly useful on account of its numerous and varied exercises .'
