With regard to foreign language teaching, glossing is a pedagogical procedure that is often practised by authors or editors of teaching materials, particularly those designed or selected for learners on lower levels of proficiency, with the explicit purpose of helping learners to comprehend the text and to learn foreign vocabulary.
The major pedagogical value of glossing is seen in the fact that it draws learners' attention to new or difficult words/items and facilitates comprehension of authentic texts used in the classroom.
Use of narrow particle size ultra-fine ground carbonate to improve glossing
the text of a play by Shakespeare is no easy matter, given the rich wordplay and nuances of his language, and editors will differ in their emphases.
This new "fine platy pigment" is a unique new kaolin that provides synergy with carbonates, combining the benefits of platy clays and fine glossing
The hollow sphere configuration and particle size distribution of Dow's new plastic pigment/binder combination contributes to even easier glossing
performance and a smoother coated sheet.
