Conversational Tagalog

Conversational Tagalog is an introductory-level text that was created for adult foreign/second language learners of Tagalog. It is designed to give practice in idiomatic Tagalog conversation by focusing exercises on simple language functions. The lessons are developed to encourage the interactional nature of communication. The book provides situations that are relevant to the lives of adult students. The situations force students to think about the meanings and consequences of what they say. Cultural notes guide students and give them a sense of when, how, and with whom it is appropriate to use the forms contained in a certain set of dialog material. Conversational Tagalog explores various ways of teaching language through actual and simulated activities, always working toward communicative competence. Grammatical explanations and exercises are based on what appears in a dialog and are not predetermined in the construction of the dialog.

Intermediate Tagalog

Intermediate Tagalog is a pioneering language text that gives students a grasp of the social rules of the language as well as the linguistic rules. Designed for students who have learned the basic skills and mastered a vocabulary of frequently used words, Intermediate Tagalog goes beyond language learning to genuine communication. The lessons use culture-loaded exchanges as well as everyday conversation to give insight into Filipino thought and behavior. For example. the student learns not to acknowledge a compliment with the standard American "thank you," but rather to downgrade what is being complimented and then to return the compliment. Each dialog is followed by cultural notes that supply possible alternate responses as well as offer comparisons with the way a similar conversation might take place between Americans. For Filipino-Americans who want to learn about their cultural heritage and for Americans who want to learn about Filipinos, Intermediate Tagalog explores value concepts while developing linguistic and sociolinguistic skills. Written in a clear and readable style, this book is a significant contribution to the teaching of Tagalog and Filipino culture.

Phrase Structure and Grammatical Relations in Tagalog

Over the last twenty years or so, most of the work on the syntax of Philippine languages has been focused on the question of whether or not these languages can be said to have grammatical subjects, and if so which argument of a basic transitive clause should be analysed as being the subject. Paul Kroeger's contribution to this debate asserts that grammatical relations such as subject and object are syntactic notions, and must be identified on the basis of syntactic properties, rather than by semantic roles or discourse functions. A large number of syntactic processes in Tagalog uniquely select the argument which bears the nominative case. On the other hand, the data which have been used in t...
