Method, Approach, Theory…. definitions

From Steve Austin:

The Anthony that you cite without knowing who he is, is Edward Anthony, whose 1963 article in the Journal “English Language Teaching” was one of the first attempts to figure out the meaning of terms like Theory, method, technique, as they apply to our field. A larger discussion can be found in those kingpins of terminology, Richards and Rodgers, Approaches & Methods in Language Teaching. (Dry as sawdust IMHO).
