To know the rules of harmony is not the same thing as to take music seriously; and to study nothing but the rules of harmony would not by itself bring about a deep sensitivity to music. It might even bring about an aversion to music; and this is equally likely to happen whether the rules are studied in the old way, as immutable norms, or in the new psychologistic way through investigations of the reaction of experimental subjects to different musical intervals.

There are two causes for alarm here. 32 LINGUISTICS AND THE TEACHING OF ENGLISH One is that some superficial or partial description may be introduced under the banner of a "new grammar", some representation of the mechanisms of English that, however accurate and explicit, may fail to reveal the underlying patterns of the language. Structure without semantics is as barren as semantics without structure. The other is that new linguistic techniques may be grafted on to an existing pedagogical framework without the re-examination of the fundamental aims of native language teaching that (quite apart from other considerations) linguistics itself demands, with all the old exercises of parsing, correcting and the like simply carried out on new material.
