Now that you have some idea about the various ways in which one can study language, what do you want to know? Here are some ideas to get you thinking.
Are there points made in class, either in lecture or in the video, that are unclear to you? Is there anything that stands out to you in the assigned reading that impressed you or that you felt was lacking?
What did you make of the notion of linguistic determinism? What role do you think language plays in human cognitive ability?
If you were to propose some study, whether on the evolution of language or the ethnography of speaking, what would you chose to investigate?
Feel free to write about anything at all.
