Rafael Gomez ENG 130 “Where Words come from” Notes He introduces by giving examples of things we do and giving us the scientific name for it. In the third paragraph, he gives a few words that were used frequently back then, but are now not used anymore. I like how he claims our dictionary is full of words, but nothing to describe the middle term between hard and soft, for example. In the fifth paragraph, he claims there are words in the dictionary, but the positive forms of these words are missing. He uses logical approach to explain to us why some words re still used, but their opposite is still being used. It makes sense because how could one form exist without the other. It seems like he is creating a list of how words can be created or changed and explain by giving examples of words throughout history. Interesting to hear that sweetheart came from sweetard, due an error.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
