Title: Functional German grammar: A pedagogical application of Fleming's "Communication Analysis" (Ilah Fleming)
Author: Feicht, Sherry Lane
Advisor: Copeland, James E.
Degree: Master of Arts thesis
Abstract: In her Communication Analysis (1988) Ilah Fleming developed a model of language analysis that treats all strata of language as a network of interplay. Through the application of her philosophy and methodology to language teaching, grammar instruction becomes a part of an integrated system of morphotactic, propositional, and discourse strategies. Functional areas, like case, voice, and transitivity, are customarily treated as morphotactic in language texts. Following Fleming's model, these are taught as propositional, their functional operations are clarified, and their relationship to both morphotactic and discourse structures are revealed.
