Explicit Pragmatic Instruction In Teaching English As A Foreign Language

Fauzul Aufa
2016 Journal of English and Education  
To achieve communicative competence in English as a Foreign Language (EFL) context, EFL learners need to develop their pragmatic competence which is better taught explicitly in the classroom.  ...  This essay argues that while the implicit instruction is reasonably applicable, the explicit pragmatic instruction is more effective to facilitate EFL learners in developing their pragmatic competence.  ...  Besides showing a sad face to show an error response, this technique also included repetition of learners' inappropriate sentences with rising intonation.  ...

Why machines should analyse intention in natural language dialogue

1999 International Journal of Human-Computer Studies  
In turn, the hypothesis provides evidence for a theory of intention analysis for natural-language dialogue processing.  ...  One of the most di$cult problems in Arti"cial Intelligence (AI) is to construct a natural language processing system which can interact with users through a natural language dialogue.  ...  In the latter multimedia systems, natural-language processing is used more for annotation through text generation whereas we are interested in analysis.  ...
