Summary:   DEAR COLLEAGUE,
I RECENTLY POSTED A QUERY ABOUT RESEARCH EVIDENCE AS TO WHETHER OR NOT
FORMAL GRAMMAR TEACHING CAN IMPROVE WRITING SKILLS. A NUMBER OF PEOPLE
PROVIDED HELPFUL LEADS, AND I'VE NOW BUILT A BIBLIOGRAPHY WHICH I'VE
INCLUDED IN A SHORT REVIEW OF THE EVIDENCE. THIS IS AVAILABLE FOR
DOWNLOADING FROM HTTP://WWW.PHON.UCL.AC.UK/HOME/DICK/PAPERS.HTM , BUT I'LL
BE GLAD TO SEND AN ELECTRONIC COPYY (AS AN ATTACHMENT), OR EVEN PAPER.
THE BIBLIOGRAPHY NOW INCLUDES SOME RESEARCH FROM OUTSIDE THE
ENGLISH-SPEAKING WORLD, BUT NOT MUCH, SO I'D WELCOME FURTHER SUGGESTIONS.
