Title:Semantic Clause Analysis in Focus for Learning Kayapó
Contributor (author):Jefferson, Kathleen
Date (W3CDTF):1974
Description:The purpose of this paper is to tie early language learning into current trends in linguistic theory. Frame drills are presented using the principle of "overlearning" to set the information in the student's mind. Although new vocabulary is necessarily used, the primary intent of the drills is to learn the kinds of clause types found in the Kayapó1 language, and the types of surface structure verbs that go with them. An appendix will be found at the end of the frames, which provides concise definitions of terms used and how these terms relate to the surface structure of the language. Five major types of processes have been found in Kayapó and twenty types of roles. Different processes have diverse role combinations or role frames, which are inherently possible. See accompanying chart of role occurrence. (eng)
