We are over halfway done with the semester, and I managed to escape Second Language Acquisition relatively unscathed, and withe a decent final grade. For the second half of the semester, I am enrolled in Studies in Linguistics, which so far has been an interesting and enlightening experience. Learning about how the brain processes information and the ways in which we can break down languages into smaller components has changed the way in which I view everyday language use. Right now we are focusing on morphemes, and the types of affixes that are in multiple languages. Next week is phonology and midterms, so wish me luck!
There is also an exciting opportunity for a paid internship through the State Library Grant to assist one of my professors with teaching citizenship English at local libraries around the Oklahoma City Metro. Stay tuned for updates on wether or not I get the job!
See you soon,
