Linguistic Anthropology Assignment: Slang What do I have to do? The purpose of this assignment is to get you to think about the variety of linguistic resources individuals have and how they are used in specific contexts. You will write an essay of 1000 words analyzing the data set you collected in the slang data sheet (see attachments). The assignment should be in essay form; that means you should have an introduction in which you state your main argument, supporting paragraphs where you discuss the slang terms with examples, and then a conclusion.
You should use your completed slang data sheet and your
notes on concepts and issues we have studied in the course to help you think
about relevant discussion points. Search for patterns and differences and
explore what factors are relevant for an individual or groups who use specific
terms. You may comment on who would not use a term and give explanations. Make
sure to explain the cultural context and any presuppositions; do not simply
provide definitions of the terms.
Evaluation 1. You must also submit a paper copy of your slang data collection sheet in class on March 30 and include an electronic copy of your slang data sheet with your paper.
2. You must use appropriate grammar and spelling and follow the
formatting specifications detailed below. Style and formatting are worth 15% of the paper
grade. You can get assistance with academic writing through the Student
Development Centre http://www.sdc.uwo.ca/writing/.
3. The content of your essay is worth 85% of the paper
grade and must do the following:
a) Frame your essay in terms of how at least two of
the factors below affect slang terms in different speech communities. Your
introduction should make clear which of these factors you are focusing on and
then the body of the essay should demonstrate how they affect the way people
use slang expressions. The factors listed below are in italics; you must
pick two different factors, not two examples of the same factor.
categories (e.g. age, gender, hometown region, ethnicity,
– context (i.e.
the kind of thing or situation the person is expressing an opinion about)
goals (e.g. fitting in with peers, expressing solidarity with
friend, being funny)
to the listener (i.e. what kind of friend are they imagining)
ideologies (e.g. swearing is inappropriate, slang is more
b) Illustrate your argument with real data (i.e. from your slang
data sheet). When including examples, make sure you give an example
with specific slang terms. Do not simply describe a generality.
– Don’t do this: “Younger people use more slang terms.”
– Instead, write: “Younger people use more recent slang terms like ‘sweet’ or
c) The point of the assignment is for you to demonstrate that you understand how language, identity and culture are connected, and that you know how to use some (not all) of the concepts from the course, such as: • Speech community • Social categories • Data set (i.e. The information from the chart you filled in) • Communicative competence • Language variation • Dialect and register • Style (different ways of saying something) • Intersubjectivity • Intertextuality • Heteroglossia • Social goals • Language ideologies • Indexicality • Speech act and performatives • Presupposition • Contextual elements • Standard language / non-standard language
Tips and guidelines • Use “I” in your writing (not “you” or passive voice); • No references beyond the course materials (readings, tutorials, lectures) are required; • Include examples of what you and others say to support your points; • For words in other languages, put in italics with translation in parentheses (translation); • Data is personal but you still need to write in an academic style; • Introduction should have a thesis which you construct from part 3 (a) in the instructions; • Try to show some critical reflection to explain why, not just a superficial description; o That’s the difference between 78% and 92%; • Try to incorporate material from lectures on identity, ideologies.
How do I format my assignment? • Papers must be typed using 12 point, black, Times New Roman font; • Papers must be double-spaced with one inch margins; • Papers should have a cover page indicating the title, your name and student number, the date, the instructor’s name, the TAs’ names, and the course number and section; • All pages must be numbered beginning with the first page; • Do not right justify your text; • Double check the accuracy of your in-text citations and remember to include a complete References Cited bibliography as the final page of your paper for all references; • Please proof read your work carefully before handing it in!
How do I submit my paper? • All assignments must be submitted electronically through the Assignments tab. • Please Do NOT submit assignments as e-mail attachments or by sliding them under the professor’s door; • Assignments will NOT be accepted if they are submitted more than one week after the due date; • Make sure to back up all your work, including lecture notes, research, and assignment drafts. Computer-related problems are not acceptable justifications for extensions or accommodations.
What if my assignment is late? • Late assignments will be penalized 5% per day (including weekends and holidays) unless you provide documentation from Academic Counselling to justify an extension.
Review the attached media, and use the theories and concepts of this module to answer the question, “is there more than one kind of intelligence?”
Part 1: First, read this article and watch the embedded video:
Chris Agnos (2019, July 1): There is More Than One Kind of Intelligence
Part 2: Now, consider Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences.
Critics of his work suggest that because Gardner never designed a way to measure his intelligences, his theory lacks reliable empirical support. Because his (nine) forms cannot be measured, his theory is falsifiable and difficult to research.
Furthermore, opponents suggest that multiple ‘abilities’ are not what is meant by intelligence and therefore cannot be considered psychometric or an alternative to g.
On the other hand, proponents argue that Gardner’s theory is useful in motivating students with different strengths and real-world accomplishments.
You may find it interesting to know that Gardner (1999) decided against developing measurements to prevent the kind of labelling that might lead to prejudice (as may be seen in individuals with low IQ scores, for example).
With this in mind, are Gardner’s critics missing the point? Defend either side of this debate in your discussion post. Please use two scholarly sources and information from the word document provided.
Proposal Argument: Plastic bags affect our environment and how in Argentina (where I live) every business and supermarket keeps handing their products on them. Instructions: Formatting your proposal argument will differ from essay format in that your proposal will contain front matter, body text and end matter. Your proposal argument may also utilize headings and visuals.
Your front matter will include:
A title page. Includes the title of your proposal, to audience of your report, who wrote the report, and the date. Type each of these items on a separate line and center each line. An executive summary. Your executive summary includes the title of the proposal and your name at the top. Then, it describes the problem and your solution in a single paragraph. The body of your proposal will contain the following information. Create your own informative headings to distinguish between sections.
A statement of the problem. Introduces the problem and establishes the relevance of the problem for your audience. A description of the solution. Describes the solution and the steps needed to implement it. An explanation of reasons. Provides your reasoning and/or your evidence in support of your proposed solution. You will also address any available alternatives, as well as possible counterarguments to your solution. A conclusion. This section summarizes and reinforces your main points, considers the larger implications of your solution, indicates if there are any further solutions to consider, and/or issues a call to action. The following content will comprise your end matter:
A works cited. Be sure to follow exactly the citation guide in your textbook. The works cited list is never numbered but is always alphabetized. Every reference on the list should match a clearly labeled in-text citation in the body of your proposal. An appendix (optional).
Any documents or visuals that might be too large for the body of your proposal may be included in an appendix. Be sure to label each item.
Your final draft should include 2 pages for front matter, 4-5 double-spaced pages for body content and at least 1 page for end matter (works cited): a total of 7-10 pages. You are encouraged to include headings in the body text and visuals if relevant.
For this assignment, please assume that you are a manager in the company of your choosing. You need your staff to help you gather the information that you need to create the budget that will be presented to executives for approval.
Present the main point first. This may be the single most important guideline about the structure and content of memos. Readers should quickly grasp the content and significance of the memo.
If readers have a question or problem, they want to know the answer or solution immediately—if readers want more information, they can continue reading. In other words, supporting details should follow the main point or conclusion, not precede it. Maintain a professional, succinct style.
The style of your writing should be appropriate to your audience: In this case, your audience is your boss, your coworkers, or both. So, your style should be professional, straightforward, cordial, and easy to read. To achieve such a style, use short, active sentences. Avoid jargon and pretentious language.
Maintain a positive or neutral tone; avoid negative language if possible. In addition to making memos easier to read, a professional writing style also improves the writer’s credibility. Create a very specific subject line to give the reader an immediate idea of the memo’s (or message’s) subject and purpose. The subject line should orient the reader to the subject and purpose of the memo and provide a handy reference for filing and quick review.
Suppose, for instance, that you were writing to request authorization and funding for a business trip. You’d avoid a general subject line like “Publisher’s Convention” or “Trip to AWP Conference” in favor of something more specific like “Request for funds: AWP conference.” The last example would tell the reader the subject and what she was being asked to do about it. Provide a summary or overview of the main points, especially if the memo is more than one page. Often referred to as an executive summary, the first paragraph of a long memo or message serves these functions: Presents the main request, recommendation or conclusion Summarizes then previews the main facts, arguments and evidence Forecasts the structure and order of information presented in the remainder of the memo Like the subject line, the executive summary provides a quick overview of the purpose and content of the memo. The reader uses it to guide both a quick first reading and subsequent rapid reviews. Use format features, such as headings, to signal structure and guide readers to the information they’re seeking. Headings provide an outline of the memo, enabling the reader to quickly see what the major topics or points are and where to find them in the memo. Make headings parallel with each other and as specific as possible. Other format features that signal structure and guide readers include short paragraphs and blocks of text, lists set off by indentations, numbers or bullets, or generous use of white space to guide the eye. STANDARD MEMO HEADING
Though the format for a memo may vary from one organization to another, the standard heading consists of a series of clearly labeled lines that convey key information about the memo’s contents and its distribution. The following are standard elements of a memo header:
Date: The date on which the memo is distributed
To: The person(s) to whom it is primarily addressed
(sometimes with job title)
cc: Name(s) of anyone else who receives a copy
(sometimes with job title)
From: Name of the writer, usually followed by his/her
handwritten initials (sometimes with job title)
Subject: or Re: Concise statement of the memo’s topic
A) Introduction: this needs to set out the purpose of report and should state what your planned research question is – what are you trying to find out?
B) Background: ‘context’: of the topic The research plan should: Clearly explain the context (eg introduction to the organisation and/or history of the situation) and the rationale for the research. You should aim to explain the broad background against which you will conduct your research. You should include a brief overview of the general area of study within which your planned research falls, summarising the current state of knowledge and recent debates on the topic. In this section you should also indicate how why your research will be useful to either individuals or businesses. How might it fill gaps in existing work or extend understanding of particular topics?
C) Methodology The research plan should: Identify an appropriate research methodology that is relevant for the topic and the aims and objectives of the intended research, logically explaining how it is relevant and providing a rationale for the selection of this approach over others. For example are you going to carry out primary data collection or rely solely on secondary data? Are you going to use a mixture of both? How will you collect your primary data – will you use interviews, focus groups or questionnaires? Why have you chosen the method(s) you are using? Are there any limitations in using these methods – what are they? How will you collect and record the data? How will you analyse it? Think about the practical and ethical considerations.
D) Bibliography – the main literature that will be included in the full review within your research report The research plan should: Set out what literature you aim to review in your research report – which authors are key researchers in this area? What publications should you include? Why are these good sources of information? Are there any key works, books or articles that you must include?
E) List of References The research plan should: Be fully and consistently referenced using the Harvard British Standard referencing system (see details on Moodle for guidance).
In addition the plan should: Have correct and appropriate language, grammar and spelling. Have an appropriate structure. Be professionally presented, appropriate to both academic and business audiences. Have adhered to the specified word count.

This essay should be a narrative essay.
I have been told to not compare myself with others a thousand times. However, I always compare myself with others. After comparing myself with others’ the only thing left to myself was unhappiness and deprivation. Even I was comparing with the one that I am not fully aware of. Everybody knows that it is impossible to fully know somebody. I surely know this simple fact but by the time I was comparing myself with others, I ignored this fact and compared myself with others. I always thought others around me were better than me and wanted to improve myself as much as he is or she is. In fact, when I take a deep look and talk with them intensely, I find out that I only see the part that I want to see.
I have a friend who was my teaching assistant for ESE 380. As this course is one of the most rigorous course among all electrical engineering course, I was having trouble. This course requires a special program to finish the lab report and professor told the students that we need to use certain font for text and title. After I was writing my lab report, I tried to use fixed font but I could not find it in my computer. Therefore, I mailed to all the teaching assistants about the problem and several teaching assistants that replied to me. One of the teaching assistants replied to me was Korean. He not only solved my problem, but also he helped me a lot throughout the semester. As he took the course before and got an A, he knew the course very well and was able to help me a lot. Thanks to him, I successfully finished that course with a good grade, and now we are friends.
However, one day, he told me that it was a great luck in his life to be friend with me and also told me that he never thought that I would be that nice. However, when he told me that, I was curious why he likes me but still there are people who do not like me as much as he likes me. Therefore, I talked with him about the relationships around me. After a long conversation, he told me that there is nobody who is favorable to everyone. Therefore, just focus on the one who like me and are favorable to me. After that conversation, I tried to figure out the relationship of my friends. How they get along with others, how others think of him or her and the reason for so. Of course there is a friend who people either like or hate. This kind of personality is normal personality that is around me. However, though there are a lot of friends who do not suit with everyone on earth, I still focused on the friends who seems like favorable to everyone and me eager to be like him. A few days later, I went to a pub with him. We talked about various things and I had a chance to talk about his friendship. When I first asked him about how he can maintain such a good relationship with everybody surrounding him, he told me he isn’t. However, I thought he is trying to be modest. When he recognized I was thinking like that, he gave me a detailed explanation about his relationships. He told me who is being friendly to him recently and who dislike him. I no doubt thought he has nobody dislike him. I got really confused and felt like something strongly hit my head. I feel like every single thing I believed about him and others who seems like nobody hates him is being denied. After, when I talked with others, I realized that as I was comparing myself with others, it was my misunderstanding and only tried to see what I wanted to see.
Later on, I talked about the incidents with my friend who is a man of thought. I told him how I came up with this thought and how it was ended. After I told him what happened, he made me to go over things happened. He asked me whether I ever heard of do not compare yourself with others or not. I replied I heard that tons of times. After then, he asked me by comparing myself with others, did I truly see things objectively. Of course not, l was seeing the situation and interpreted it as the way I wanted to. Am I trying to become motivated, competitive or jealous? Didn’t I dream of the life from social media and dreamed perfect life? Every single question he asked me to regret why I thought like that. I was trying to compare myself with others to become jealous and competitive and I dreamed the perfect life from Instagram and Facebook. Nobody is living like that and it is impossible but I just looked at the phase that I wanted to see and regard it as a whole not a mere part. He also mentioned how I am superior to others in certain area. He concluded that day’s conversation that if someone look at the part that I am superior to others, he or she will always think they are inferior.
Thanks to my friend’s help, I found out that comparing myself with others and dreamed to be like others will only result in make myself unhappy and frustrated as I look like I fall behind compare to them. As my friend told me the opposite case, I finally fully realize how idiot I was to compare my weakness with others strength. Now I learn the meaning of ‘Everyone on earth has their weak spot’. I admit I have a weak spot and try to be better than previous myself not others.
