Sec. 1C HW #1 TA: Alex Lawn 1. Yes, I do believe they’re equally probable as new words are being constructed all the time thanks to things like compound words and our linguistic creativity. Learning new sentences are also probable as our linguistic creativity also allows us to continuously add on to a phrase and construct a sentence we have never heard before. 2. I generally use the word “less”, which is a term for smaller amount of measurement, when I actually should be using “few”, which is a term used for a smaller amount of something counted, like in the market where there is a “10 items or less” line when it should be “10 items or fewer”. Likewise, you wouldn’t say “I need fewer water.” You’d say “I need less water.” Another thing is I use “ain’t” when the proper word to use is a variation “am not”, like “I ain’t going.” => “I am not going”. 3a.

    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.
