dc.description.abstractEnglish: This paper is informed by a study carried out among 720 randomly selected senior secondary school learners from 36 randomly selected secondary schools from the Oyo, Ogun, Osun, Lagos, Ondo and Ekiti States of Nigeria (Asiyanbola, 2003). Based on the employment of the elicitation techniques of six composition topics and a ten-item supply-response test, a large number of grammatical problems were identified from observations of the written language behaviour of the participants. The pupils experienced great difficulty in forming non-basic and non-simple sentences. A step-by-step presentation of English sentences is thus suggested: basic simple, non-basic simple and non-simple sentences. These could be incorporated into the grammar units of three common English language course books and the teaching syllabus used in Nigerian senior secondary schools. Moreover, essential points of grammar are also suggested, to be taught alongside each of the sentence types at various stages, since sentences cannot be taught in isolation.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractFrench: A l’aide de six sujets de rédaction comme moyen de contrôle concernant la formulation de phrases en anglais, cet article identifie les problèmes de 720 apprenants choisis dans quelques écoles secondaires de la région au sud-ouest du Nigéria. L’étude évalue les unités grammaticales élaborées dans trois livres de cours et dans les programmes scolaires de ces échantillons. A partir de là, nous découvrons certains vides à combler. Ainsi, l’article propose des processus variés pour la formulation de phrases en anglais grammaticalement acceptables et plausibles et que l’on pourrait intégrer aux nouvelles éditions et aux révisions du programme.fr
