Abstract: In this research, I first question the prevailing definitions of authentic texts. I argue that a more practical and important definition for authentic texts, especially in a setting that treats Chinese as a second language, should focus on the original communicative purpose in the texts. I propose that we can treat the textbook as a communication act. Chapter 3 develops an analyze framework of authenticity based on Michael Tomasello's human communication theory, cultural ecology of human cognition and usage-based theory of language acquisition. Chapter 4 applies Tomasello's theory and the analytic framework of authenticity to two series of Chinese child textbooks: Easy steps to Chinese for kids, Hello, Chinese!. Chapter 5 concludes with a summary, provided suggestions and possible developments of authenticity in language textbook design.
