Linguistics - Lingustic Hw, Essay

Write an essay that addresses one of the following questions or issues, following the instructions. PICK ONE. (1) In what ways and why is Modern English spelling so inconsistent? (2) Compare and contrast the sounds of English with those of another language or languages with which you are familiar (especially the consonant and vowel segments, but also suprasegmental features such as tone where relevant). (3) A central concept in historical linguistics is that of a “language family”. Summarize and discuss the key properties of a language family, stating what linguistic criteria linguists look for when grouping languages into families. (4) Compare and contrast the basic word orders of English with those of another language or languages with which you are familiar. (5) Summarize and discuss the major "language areas" of the human brain and some of the linguistic consequences of medical impairment to these areas, for example in aphasia. (6) Discuss critically Chomsky's proposal that the basic principles and parameters of syntax (his "Universal Grammar") must be innate. Instructions: (a) The paper must be at least 5 pages in length, double-spaced, 12-point font, 1-inch margins. Hard copy only. No electronic files please. (b) Use material from the Fromkin et al. textbook wherever possible as a starting point. It is expected that you will also consult some additional materials, using the further readings in the textbook as a guide, or other scholarly articles or books. If you are in any doubt about the appropriateness of a source, check with your TA. The minimum number of additional sources you should consult beyond the textbook is two. (c) List your references at the end of the paper, giving full bibliographical details. References within the main text can then be very brief, e.g. Sapir (1921). Footnotes are optional. (d) Make sure you address the topic that you are asked to address. (g) Organize your discussion logically with a clear statement of goal or purpose at the outset, a clear summary or conclusion at the end, and some interesting and substantive content in between. (h) Papers that reveal exceptional thought and analysis, and that are very well-written, will receive an A+ grade (or 10/10).
