Key Terms The quiz includes material from in-‐class lecture, R&H textbook readings: 52, 3, 8, 56, 41, 55, 18, 16; the Aitcheson course pack reading; and the supplemental audio interview on linguistic relativity and the basic phonetics lesson (supplemental resources on Sakai). 1. Descriptivism vs. Prescriptivism- Descriptivism is how speakers actually speak a language. Prescriptivism is how they should speak it. 2. Sex vs. Gender- Sex is more biological. Pitch (fundamental frequency). Gender is identity 3. Accent / Dialect/Language- Inter-language: foreign accent. Speaker’s words go through native phonology and what comes out is their target language. Dialects are speech varieties that are mutually understood and are based on location or a socio- linguistic variety (heritage, sexual orientation). A language has an army behind it; a dialect doesn’t. A language is what we speak and a dialect is the variety spoken by a group usually thought of as inferior. Languages can be labeled dialects rather than languages for social or political reasons (ie Chinese). Can be socially or politically determined. Some rural areas are retaining their dialects to show a sense of identity.

    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.
