For this assignment, you are to write a linguistic autobiography that connects your experience as a user of one or more American languages (including ANY language that you may know or speak) to concepts covered throughout this course. Think about how your experience as a speaker/singer of a language has been formed and who or what has been part of this formation. You should contextualize your experiences in the larger social setting and explore how these experiences have shaped your own attitudes about language. Apart from your academic research, interview family members and friends with whom you have grown up.
A thesis statement that connects your personal language experiences to at least one topic we have discussed in class.
Develop the body of the paper connecting it to your topic and thesis statement – develop your thesis and how that relates to at least three concepts covered in class.
A well-integrated reference to at least three academic sources (These should include concepts from the class readings, discussions, and lectures (do not cite lectures as they are not academic sources)).
Correct use of terms from class when appropriate (e.g., language shift, Three-Generation Rule, linguistic discrimination, mutual intelligibility, overt/covert prestige, diglossia, etc…)
The paper should be clearly written (in APA format), proofread, and no longer than 750
If you submit a paper that does not address the above criterion or is not an autobiography you will most likely receive a grade no higher than 59% for this assignment.
