Linguistics 111, Fall 2007 Fieldwork Assignment 1 Note: No group work allowed Due date: November 2, 2007 Collecting Speech Errors On Monday November 12 we will discuss speech errors, and what we can learn about the way that language is represented in the mind from studying speech errors. In preparation for this class, you have to collect as many speech errors as you can during the next several weeks. You must then submit a typed list of all the speech errors that you have collected no later than Friday November 2. I will combine all of the speech errors into one corpus, and we will analyze some of these errors in class.

    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.
