Example text

Linguistic competence refers not only to grammatical knowledge but to all aspects of the linguistic system including those lexical resources such as formulaic speech. The textual and pragmatic constituents are necessary for the construction and interpretation of discourse and, in this sense, pragmatic competence is similar to Celce-Murcia, Dörnyei, and Thurrell’s (1995) actional competence. As far as the psychomotor skills and competencies are concerned, Alcón (2000) suggests that discourse competence influences the abilities of listening, speaking, reading and writing, which are interrelated to one another in order to use the language for communicative purposes.

Taking these models as the basis of our work, we have modestly proposed a pedagogical framework of communicative competence with the aim of continuing research on them by highlighting both the importance of the intercultural component as well as the key role of the four skills in developing discourse competence for communicative purposes. This chapter, in turn, serves as the theoretical foundation for the introductory chapters to the four skills, namely listening in Section II, speaking in Section III, reading in Section IV, and writing in Section V.
