ENG 380 Week 1 Language and Linguistics Worksheet
 

In a linguists world, understanding language and language change tells a lot about where we are today in terms of linguistics as a whole. How we communicate and understand language changes over time.

Language and Linguistics Worksheet

Using the text for this course, the University Library, the Internet, and/or other resources complete the following three-part assignment.

 

 

Part A
 

 

Select two terms total from the following lists. One term is an example of how language changes over time. Select a different term that is an example of how English has spread as an international language.

 

(Note: We are looking at the etymology of the terms, not the technology they represent.  For instance, apple used to mean a fruit, but now it also is the name of a major computer/smart phone company.  You would not get credit for saying that Apple’s products allow people to communicate in English.)

Write a 350-word paper in which you discuss why one of the terms you selected exemplifies the evolution of language and why one of the terms you selected exemplifies the spread of English.

Explain why English is used so widely.

Format references and citations consistent with APA guidelines.

 

 

 

Part B
 

 

Select Scenario A or Scenario B:

 

Scenario A: Jason is blind and has epilepsy. He has a guide dog named Bo who assists him. Bo usually responds to commands from Jason. At times, Jason gives Bo the command to cross the street, but Bo disobeys if Jason has misjudged the traffic and it is not safe to cross.

 

Bo can also sense when Jason is about to have an epileptic seizure. The dog becomes agitated and begins to whine; although this is something he has not been trained to do. At times, he has left Jason and alerted others that his human companion needs help.

 

Scenario B: While caring for her infant daughter at home, Sara talks to another child:

 

“Ba, bab, ba, babab, ba, bab, baba, ba”

“Yes, Julie, that’s a baby! See the baby? Pretty baby!”

“Ba, ba, bab, bab, bab”

 

Write a 350-word paper in which you define communication, define language, and explain how they differ.  Be sure to use linguistic definitions from the textbook.  Do not summarize the scenario; I’ll know which one you’re talking about.

Explain whether the scenario you selected is an example of communication or language, based on your definitions.

Provide at least one reference to support your conclusion.

Format references and citations consistent with APA guidelines.

 

 

Part C
 

In the chart, decide whether the following situations are examples of errors in competenceor performance.  That is, does the person not really understand what he or she is trying to do (an error in competence), or does the person understand the concept but just have trouble producing it (an error in performance)?  Each situation must be one or the other; you cannot choose both. In the appropriate column, explain why you think the situation shows an error in competence or performance.

1. A five-year-old child hears conversations among adults and understands words like debatable and discussion.  But, she cannot pronounce the words correctly. 

 
 
 
2. An English teacher visits her elderly grandfather. In conversations with him, she uses words like ain’t and phrases like fixin’ to. 

 
 
 
3. A 14-year-old always writes and says the word specific as “pacific” and does not differentiate between the two when read/heard. 

 
 
 
4. In talking about his dad, a 15-year-old boy calls his father a “smuck in the tid” when he meant to say “stick in the mud.” 

 
 
 
5. A high school student can recite the definition of a comma splice, but she still always writes sentences that contain comma splices and cannot identify examples in other people’s writing.

Word Similarity, Speech Acts, and Making Meaning of Language

 

Complete all three parts of this assignment.

 

Part A: Word Similarity Chart

 

Use the text for this course, the University Library, the Internet, and/or other resources to complete the following chart.

Indicate, in the chart, whether the words in the Word Group column are hyponyms, synonyms, antonyms, or homophones. Be sure to list your answers in the Type of Similarity column.  One-word answers are all you need; explanations are not necessary.

 

(Are you struggling with hyponyms vs. synonyms?  For each group of words, fill in this blank: All of these words can be described as ___.  If the word in the blank is a different word (e.g., Roses, lilies, and petunias can all be described as flowers.), then you have hyponyms.  If the word in the blank is one of the words already in the group (e.g., Cleaning, scrubbing, and wiping can all be described as cleaning.), then you have synonyms.)

Part B

 

Describe as precisely as possible, in 200 to 400 words, the definition of honorifics and the rules for using honorifics and addressing people in your English in different social situations, ranging from very informal to very formal. Now compare these rules to the rules for addressing people in Spanish or another language you know.   If you do not know another language, refer to the textbook’s discussion on honorifics.

 

Part C

 

Describe in 200 to 400 words what the life cycle of a language is; what language shift is, how it happens, and its significance to the life cycle of language; and what language revitalization means and its significance to the life cycle of language.

 

 

 

 

 

ENG 380 Week 4 Language Acquisition Paper
 

Our minds work in mysterious ways–or so the saying goes. We have a certain capacity to acquire language. In this assignment, you will explore that capacity by researching language acquisition, bilingualism, and our ability to create language.

Write a 1,400- to 1,750-word paper in which you analyze our capacity to acquire language. Include the following:

 

 

 

The stages of first language acquisition
 

 

A comparison of second language learning and true (or sequential) bilingualism, noting which process is closer to first langauge acquisition and how the other process differs from first language acquisition
 

 

Our capacity to create language (language genesis)
 

 

Format the entire essay, including title page, citations, and references, according to appropriate course level APA guidelines.  Use the textbook as a source. While there is no minimum number of other sources involved, you may use additional sources besides the text to support your analysis.

Submit your assignment to the Assignment Files tab.

 

 
 

 

 

ENG 380 Week 4 Learning Team Outline and Reference List
 

Create an outline and reference page for the final paper.  Include in-text citations with the ideas on the outline.
