Interrogatives with wh-pronouns in Kokborok and English
For an effective teaching of a second language to the mature learners a Comparative Grammar Teaching model (CGT) is effective, advisable but long awaited. Born of this strong conviction and of my three decades of English language teaching experience at the tertiary level an attempt has been made here to project a model of CGT. The paper, an offshoot of an ongoing study, compares the wh-questions in Kokborok (a Tibeto Burman language spoken in Tripura, India) and English. Within its limited scope the study attempts to bring out the dissimilarities (with implicit similarities) between the interrogative constructions with wh-pronominals in the two languages. The quintessence of the findings presented in tabular form in conclusion promises to be extremely useful for all concerned with second language pedagogy, especially in the context stated above.
