Valenza e insegnamento della lingua straniera

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This work deals with valency, a key syntactic notion whose chemistry-inspiredlabel was established by Lucien Tesnière (1959), one of the most well-known contributors to thePrague Linguistic Circle. We will concentrate on two questions: (a) to what extent does valencyplay a role in Second Language Learning (SLL)?; and (b) what role should the use of valencyplay in language teaching practices? This paper will provide answers to these questions andpropose reasons for motivating the use of valency in SLL.
