 Last entry I talked about the Rec Center, a lot-- I'm impressed by it, on the other hand I should talk about uni and actual classes. This term I'm taking Language and Society, linguistics 223. It's a core requirement for an Anthropology degree, sort of the closest thing PSU has for a Linguistic Anthropology class.  It's a pretty nice easy going class so far, three small writing assignments of language aspects and a presentation about a myth on language. My group's myth is "Do women talk to much?" The short answer according to the reading I've done so far is no. In fact men do most of the talking especially in public. This has to do with gender and society  roles, I won't go on about  in length, that's what the presentation and more research is for, but there it is. I got some books from the library yesterday, here's hoping I can dig into them soon. The presentation isn't due until the eighth of May or sixth (will check) but I like to have the jump on things. It's a pretty interesting class, however I feel a little lost when Mr. Childs talks about the jargon, because I've never had a linguistics course. I also wish we weren't focused on English so much. I was hoping we would talk about aspects of language, and then Childs would give us examples in languages where it occurs. Yet most of our examination has been on dialects of English, which is good to learn about, but I confess... a little boring. Well I have to go history 300 is in a couple of minutes. Wow! I guess I'm going to need a part three to talk about my history 300 class! That's okay though, my little live journal needs more attention anyway. *Gives it a big cuddle*
