Grammatical Highlighting

Killing two birds with one stone while leaving no stone unturned.

Foregrounded lexical terms reinforce shifting from short-term to long-term memory through providing additional contact with the target language. Utilization of highlighters with multiple colors empowers an extensive array of mnemonic devices such as circling text or highlighting phrases to further convey semantic information. Qualitative analysis is left to the deft foreign language learner's imagination.

Grammatical Highlighting Exemplifications

05. Reading Excerpt

The Raven

by Edgar Allen Poe


Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
"Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door -
Only this, and nothing more."

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore-
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels named Lenore -
Nameless here for evermore.

And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me - filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
"Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door -
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door; -
This it is, and nothing more, ..."
