The scientific study and teaching of languages. N° de ref. de la librería
Sinopsis: London :J anuary, 1917 To Monsieur Edouard Mathieu My dear Mathieu, There was once a time, in a past now very remote, when you, Georges Bevemage, and I came together in conference. All three attracted by the same subject and moved by the same impulse, we passed our leisure in examining a particular aspect of what we came to call the Linguistic Problem. During the course of our long walks in the Hertogenwald Forest and of our wanderings on the Great Moor we would talk of many things :of language and its nature, of the dialects spoken around us, of sounds and spellings, of teaching and learning, of teachers and pupils, of methods good, bad, and indifferent. They were heart-searching talks, for we were terribly in earnest; we judged and tested many theories, and found them good or foimd them wanting. Omr association in matters linguistic continued and developed. At the Society Polyglotte or at the Mutuelle we would preach reforms and carry glad tidings of phonetics, of ergonics, or of semantics. We would read Sweet, Jespersen, and Bral, and comment on what we read, we would discuss the latest articles in Le Ma Ure Phon Migue and Modern Language Teaching. So free from prejudice were we, and so open were our minds, that we would accept and reject the doctrine of the Direct Method at least once a year. You A vi Uremember our search for the one true standard and universal method, the goal that ever seemed so near, and yet which ever proved just beyond our grasp.
