  • With this type of grammar, learners can be asked to compare different explanations of a language point from different grammars. This allows learners to think about grammar and its role in communication. In its expanded view, it involves decision making processes on behalf of the teacher which requires careful and time-consuming interdisciplinary work. This process is influenced by the teachers’ cognition, beliefs, assumptions, and attitudes about the teaching of grammar.

  • Pedagogical Grammar is somewhat applicable for Filipino students & teachers learning the English language more effectively. It is simply absorbing new ideas which should be related to personal experience or apply earnestly to transcend a better learning of the so called second or foreign language.

  • Pedagogical grammar might be define as a grammar developed for learners of a foreign language. It draws on two separate but interrelated areas of theory: firstly, descriptive models of grammar, which can be incorporated into pedagogical reference grammars and teaching materials and formulated in ways which make the description accessible to the learner, and secondly, theories of second-language acquisition, which will provide the basis for classroom methodology.
    Description and methodology are the two theoretical areas that comprise pedagogical grammar. It is the latter that has been the main focus of attention and which has, at recurrent periods in the history of language teaching, represented a highly contentious topic.

  • This type of grammar is designed primarily for students who are learning a second language because its main goal is to increase fluency and accuracy of speech. It is a combination of process and content.
    Many teachers think that teaching grammar separately is not favorable to learners since learners only learn the way language is constructed, and very often when they are given grammatical rules, the learners work well on such cases. However, when they write or speak, the learners make grammatical mistakes or even unnecessary ones. Helping learners apply grammatical rules into communicative tasks (for example, writing and speaking) is very challenging. Therefore, teachers, especially those who are teaching grammar should adopt some alternative teaching approaches and may use pedagogical grammar so that they can integrate grammar or structure into other language skills in such a way that the goal of learning language is ultimately achieved.

pedagogical grammar

  1. 1. Pedagogical grammar By: Remegia Javier
  2. 2. Pedagogical Grammar• Is a description of how to use grammar of alanguage to communicate, for people wanting tolearn the target language. It can be compared with areference grammar, which just describes thegrammar of the language.• the focus is on how grammatical items may bemade more learnable or teachable
  3. 3.  Pedagogical grammars contain assumptions about how learners learn, follow certain linguistics theories in their descriptions, and are written for a specific target audience.
  4. 4.  A pedagogical grammar is designed for teaching and learning purposes rather than as definitive analysis of a language point. As such, the approach, content and analysis frequently differ from a linguistic grammar.
  5. 5.  The pedagogical Grammar is designed to the needs of speakers learning English; the focus is on helping students improve accuracy in academic writing. There is a strong contrastive nature to the analysis as some (but not all) errors result from transfer from the mother –tongue. The content is based on analysis of students writing.
  6. 6.  Pedagogical grammar refers to the grammatical content taught to a student learning a language other than his or her first language or the methods used in teaching that content. The goal of this type of grammar is primarily to increase fluency and accuracy of speech, rather than to impart theoretical knowledge. Someone studying in an applied linguistics field such as Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages (TESOL) is likely to be required to take a course in pedagogical grammar. A pedagogical grammar may also be a grammar textbook designed to assist in learning a language.
  7. 7.  Courses in pedagogical grammar often teach students about grammatical concepts that are intuitive to a native speaker, but may be difficult for a non-native speaker. A native English speaker needs little instruction in order to invert words in a sentence to form a question; that is, "You do know me" becomes "Do you know me?" Someone learning English as a second or foreign language, however, might need an explanation of how to make this inversion. This is especially true if his or her first language forms questions in a completely different way. While explicit teaching on this area of grammar would be tedious and unnecessary for first-language speakers, it may be important in pedagogical grammar.
  8. 8.  Pedagogical grammar occupies a middle ground between the areas ofA. prescriptive grammar Sets forth rules about how language should be used correctly. It prescribes language the way a doctor prescribes medicine by saying what ought to be done. Focuses on the sequence or word order to become clearerB. descriptive grammar describes how speakers actually use language without consideration for whether it conforms to "proper" rules.
  9. 9. What’s the goal of pedagogical grammar? It is to help non-native speakers achieve fluency, and accuracy. Conclusion In order for a language learner to speak well, most of his or her utterances will need to conform to the grammatical rules set forth in prescriptive grammar. On the other hand, it helps to understand the way native speakers actually use language — through descriptive grammar. This is necessary for the learner to make sense of slang or other non-standard ways of speaking, such as ending sentences with prepositions.
