    Subjective Probability: The Real Thing is the last book written by the late Richard Jeffrey, a key proponent of the Bayesian interpretation of probability.Bayesians hold that probability is a mental notion: saying that the probability of rain is 0.7 is just saying that you believe it will rain to degree 0.7. Degrees of belief are themselves cashed out in terms of bets—in this case you consider 7:3 to be fair odds for a bet on rain. There are two extreme Bayesian (...)

  3. John Williamson & Frank Hardman (1997). To Purify the Dialect of the Tribe: Children's Use of Non-Standard Dialect Grammar in Writing. Educational Studies 23 (2):157-168.
    Teachers of children of all ages are enjoined by the National Curriculum for English to develop their pupils’ ability to write in standard English. This study explores the implications of these injunctions by examining the use of non-standard dialect grammar in the writing of 362 texts written by pupils of 11 an 15 years of age. It is established that most of the forms used are found in all four of the geographical regions sampled. The grammatical features of these non-standard (...)

  4. John Williamson (1995). Canny Writers: Tyneside Dialect and the Writing of Secondary School Students. Educational Studies 21 (1):3-12.
    The issue of writing in accordance with the conventions of standard English usage is one which is becoming increasingly prominent, with changes in the National Curriculum in English reflecting concerns about correctness in language. The present study examines the writing of a group of Year 11 pupils to examine the nature of the deviance of their writing from standard English patterns and, in particular, to assess the impact of non‐standard dialect forms on their written work. Errors in writing are seen (...)

  5. John Williamson & Bruce Carrington (1991). Pause for Thought: Controversies in the Teaching of Reading. Educational Studies 17 (2):135-147.
    The publication of Martin Turner's controversial study on reading levels in primary schools has generated considerable public disquiet and debate. This paper considers some of the arguments for and against the ‘apprenticeship’ approach to the teaching of reading which Turner excoriates and shows that the position is considerably more complex than is suggested by his work. We consider the case for an eclectic investigation of this key area of learning, incorporating a variety of methodologies, both quantitative and qualitative.

  6. John Williamson (1990). “Divven't Write That, Man”: The Influence of Tyneside Dialect Forms on Children's Free Writing. Educational Studies 16 (3):251-260.
    The issue of the use of Standard English in writing, and the influence of non‐standard dialects on pupils’ ability to write in Standard English, has gained renewed prominence with the publication of a number of reports leading up to the advent of the National Curriculum in English. This article analyses the free writing of a group of 11 year‐olds in an inner‐city school in Newcastle upon Tyne in terms of the extent to which it conforms to Standard English writing conventions.
