Summary

It is claimed that the cognate approach to learning a foreign language is used successfully in commercial enterprises and that it could be applied more extensively to second language learning in an academic setting. Such an approach is presented in this textbook about cognates. Four aspects of the question are considered: (1) a psychological frame of reference for second language acquisition; (2) cognates with the English language; (3) the utility of cognates; and (4) transfer of similarities. In addition to a discussion of theory, there are references to methodology, frequency ratings, cognate bibliographies for commonly taught languages, teaching suggestions, and a sample French-English cognate unit. Appendices provide grammatical, vocabulary, and theoretical information for the French-English cognate unit lessons, and English-French cognates rated with three standard words on useful French vocabulary.
