Discuss your 'linguistic identity' with reference to a specific speech situation in a linguistic environment you choose, e.g. when you are with friends or at a taxi rank or with colleagues at work or even when you are at home with your family. Reflect on the distinctions you drawn when you speak to different people in the speech situation with reference to the view: "Whenever we use language, we reflect who we are" - see par. 1.6. 4. After publishing your discussion leave the site and come back later or the next day. 6. Go back to the topic "Assignment 01" and read the discussion of two of your fellow students. As a response, compare the linguistic identities of these students with reference to your own linguistic identity in terms of creating misunderstanding when we do not adhere to the language process. 8. Make sure all your submissions add up to about 600 - 700 words. Note : Your main discussion should be structured in terms of the Rubric for "Assessing Discussion Forums" found under Additional Resources - Unit 1 with an introduction relating to the view "W henever we use language, we reflect who we are" in general, a body as your discussion where your own 'linguistic identity' is explained and interpreted as requested.
When you do the comparison between the linguistic identities of two of your class mates (you can go to your own post and do it as a reply on your own post) you need to conclude with reference to your thoughts about language diversity and how it is manifested in different linguistic environments. Remember, in academic situations -- even online -- we strive to be polite and helpful at all times. Go back to the "Rules of Engagement" for more about Netiquette and online behaviour.
