1 LING 100/Dr. Ivelina Tchizmarova Jan. 28, 2012 Questions and Answers about LING 100 Assignment 1 Questions about the Sources Q: Could I take all my examples from one book? A: Yes, you can take all examples from the same book as long as you have different type of examples, e.g. some sound changes, some meaning changes, some sentence structure changes, etc. Q: Could I use a dictionary? A: Yes, as long as it is etymological dictionary, and you use up to two examples of meaning change from it. Q: You said we are allowed to use dictionaries to search up word histories. Does that include online dictionaries such as thefreedictionary.com and dictionary.com? A: You can use dictionaries for only two out of five examples. I don't believe thefreedictionary.com and dictionary.com will be the best sources for your assignment. I'd recommend an etymological dictionary (especially printed but online will probably also be o.k.). Q: As long as my examples are not from chapter 2 and 3 of the textbook, the articles "An invisible hand", and "Does the queen speak the Queen's English?"), will my assignment be fine? A: The examples for your assignment should be NOT be from the sources you listed, as well as from David Crystal's chapter 54 on "Language Change" ("The Cambridge Encyclopaedia of Language") or materials (textbooks, lecture notes, etc.) from LING 100 taught previous semesters.
