Linguistic theory and good practice: how cognitive linguistics could influence the teaching and learning of English prepositions
Umeå University, Faculty of Arts, Department of language studies.
2015 (English)In: Språkdidaktik: researching language teaching and learning / [ed] Lindgren, Eva, & Janet Enever, Umeå: Umeå Universitet , 2015, 61-73 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

How can we make the teaching and learning of grammar more interesting? How do we get away from rote learning to more efficient learning situations? How can we provide learners with a more holistic view of language, its speakers, and their contexts? These are questions that language teachers regularly seek to answer, but typically struggle with. In this chapter, I focus on the teaching and learning of the English prepositions in and on from a Swedish L2 perspective. It is argued that the theoretical framework of cognitive linguistics provides useful didactic information for practice in second language teaching and learning.
