Language of Deception

MUST USE THESE 2 SOURCES:  Lutz, William. Doublespeak. Reprint, Ig Publishing (Rebel Reads), 2016 Oesch, Nathan. “Deception as a Derived Function of Language.” Frontiers in Psychology, vol. 7, 2016. Crossref, doi:10.3389/fpsyg.2016.01485. For this final argument, you will select one specific subject that greatly interests and also has a sizable amount of public interest, about which you will develop a well-researched, well-written, and ultimately, convincing argument. You can choose any subject you wish, but I would highly recommend narrowing down your subject to a specific aspect of a broader topic that might currently be being debated, which you can approach in a more substantive manner. I would also urge you to pick a subject you have a real interest in, as it will make for a much more rewarding experience for you, and undoubtedly a more compelling argument. It may also be a topic in which you have personal expertise, but it does not have to be. You will need to get pre-approval on your specific topic several weeks prior to the date it will be due. You will also be asked to submit an outline and preliminary sources at a midway point in your research. This lengthier argument piece will employ skills typically used for a research paper, incorporating MLA style sourcing using citations in a bibliography. However, because this should also be able to be read as a stand-alone piece, you will need to make clear the points you are making and support you are presenting in your argument in the piece itself, rather than relying on the readers to go to the source material for edification. Your research, of course, will include secondary sources, using the library and the Internet, and, should also include primary research, meaning the inclusion of your own experiences and positions on your topic, as well as others you may choose to interview. For this second-person perspective, you will want to seek out both experts and everyday people who have something to say or at stake in regard to whatever topic you’ve chosen. Like you, they will be able to weigh in and provide their insights and opinions. MUST USE IN TEXT CITATIONS

Language Mind and the Brain

PICK ONE OF THOSE PROMPTS, Write a 2-3 page piece with properly cited (5) APA references.  (1) An impossible language as discussed by Moro is when rules in the language make reference to linear order. For example, no known language makes use of a question-formation rule referring to the n-th word in a sequence and defining some operation over it. John ate apples and oranges. –> Move third word to the front to form a yes-no question. Apples John ate and oranges? –> ‘Did John eat apples and oranges?’ Based on this hypothesis, Andrea Moro ran brain-imaging experiments teaching monolingual German speakers (actual) Italian as well as an artificially-modified version of Italian that included rules making reference to linear order. Discuss his results and what the results mean to our theory of human language and the search for language universals. (2) Is language a component of general human cognition? Why or why not? What do the studies of abnormal brains and various cognitive deficiencies tell us about this debate? (3) Sentences like ‘Mary saw the girl with the telescope.’ and ‘The guy who fixed the car carefully packed his tools.’ are ambiguous and can be assigned more than one meaning. What are these meanings and how do they arise? What are the implications of your answer to the first question on the distinction between inner representations of language and its outer, externalized form? (4) Describe the Principles and Parameters approach to the study of human language. Then consider the following sentences. English:  What do you think John ate? German:  Was glaubst du  wovon   sie  träumt? what believe you what-of she dreams ‘What do you believe that she dreams of?’ Child speech:  What did Daddy eat what? What does the Principles and Parameters approach tell us about how a child acquires language based on the above sentences?

Bilingualism Advantage and Disadvantage

Bilingualism is a controversial topic, causing heated debate between English and non-English communities. While some praise the advantages of bilingualism, others decry the adverse effects of bilingualism for non-English speaking public and children and language minorities.  Select an article of your choice in support or against bilingualism and critique the primary source based on our viewpoints and three or more sources, two of which should be academic. The essay length should be 700-900 words according to APA formatting requirements. You could use the same guidelines as suggested for the first critical review.

Minority Dialects

Second Response Paper: Minority Dialects (Draw from all we have learned this semester):   Select a passage or passages from a contemporary Chicano(a) or African-American writer and detail how and why that writer incorporates ‘dialect’ within the narrative. Some issues within that choice, which you might consider, include responding to how and why his or her use of dialect deviates from Standard American English (SAE), how does that choice determine the significance for the reader who knows that dialect, and how does that use affect the meaning of the text and the significance for the “white” reader who knows only SAE and not the dialect used in the text? You don’t need to answer all them, certainly, but consider them as ways through the assignment so that your reader is faced with more than a description of the text.   —Length: 3+ pages    —Documentation: Incorporate at least two sources into the paper, preferably from scholarly journals, in an attempt to buttress your claims. You may also include interviews from magazines or other publications, but be sure to consider their legitimacy (i.e. Are they mainstream publications? Are they peer-reviewed scholarly journals, etc). Wikipedia or other such referencing materials do not count as secondary sources.   —Style: MLA or APA (double spaced) Save your work as a DOC and PDF file. Submit both files—the DOC and PDF—at the same time. You will submit two attachments together. You must also submit a copy of your tutored doc (in the form of a DOC file with tutor comment bubbles or as a PDF with tutor markings).  There will be a10pt deduction if this is not included.

Bilingual Student

Being bilingual has been a huge benefit in my life. It allowed me to become a dependable source when it comes to the occupation. I was able to have more opportunities. It was easier when I learned new languages because I understand different grammar structures. I am able to help other people with a language barrier between Korean and English language.  Looking back, it was challenging to grow up as a bilingual child, but it has benefited me in many ways.  I already wrote first paragraph, please finish the rest of body paragraphs (4) as above.  Each paragraph can only be 5 to 7 sentences.   1. A paragraph is a set of sentences that develops a central point or main idea 2. The introductory paragraph is the first paragraph of an essay. It identifies the topic, main idea, and organization of an essay, and it captures the reader’s interest. 3. The thesis statement is usually the last sentence in the introductory paragraph. It states the topic and main idea of each of the supporting paragraphs 4.Body paragraphs contain a topic sentence that deals with a specific part of the thesis statement and supporting sentences that back up the topic sentence 5. The topic sentence of a body paragraph is a more-specific version of the thesis statement. 6. Supporting sentences contain details that back up the topic sentence of a paragraph. 7. The concluding paragraph gives an essay a sense of completeness and helps the reader.
