297. Subject: Re: Published articles. Are your most recently published articles translated in English somewhere? I am doing an action research project on ESL students and building vocabulary. I found your question and answer forum very insightful for strategies and suggestions, but I need some authentic literature in this area for my research. Do you have any suggestions?ANSWER:
Greetings, and THANKS! for visiting our Web Sites.
Most of my work is based on the theories developed by Professor William Bull --R.I.P.-- at UCLA, where I worked with him for more than 7 years before his untimely death.
Several UCLA Spanish dissertations developed further Professor Bull's theories on categories of words or "sets," among them dissertations from Professor Jacqueline Thorton (Kiraithe), R.I.P., and Professor Hildebrando Villarreal, presently, I believe, at California State University, Los Angeles.
Professor Bull wrote "Spanish for Teachers" where you will find many of his ideas very well explained in terms of Spanish.
Hope this information helps you. My most recent articles are all in Spanish, as shown in my Web Sites. However, should you have specific questions, I would be glad to try to help you. Best wishes on your endeavor. C.S.S.
