  • Invited Presenter: Two-Year College Association, Salt Lake City, UT. "The Second Best Exotic Grammar Lesson" I propose that if we really want to help students understand grammar, we have to give them an experience with the malleability of language. The model that sees “language as artifact” (Gere et al. 1992) won’t do. We need to look at language as a living entity and poetry is the only place I know where this is possible. Presentation, Presented, 10/02/2015.
