The purpose of this exam is twofold: you will review and define some of the key terms from the course and you will apply these terms to new examples from our course materials Instructions: Please type your responses to each question and upload them to Blackboard. Attach them as a separate file on Blackboard. Do not paste your answers in the Blackboard textbox. What can I use? You may use all course materials to respond to the questions, including the Ahearn textbook, additional articles, documentaries, discussion board, and Wikis. Try not to use the same example twice. Using the same example across multiple questions will reduce your grade. How do I cite? You should refer directly to the readings and documentaries, and if you quote directly from the text, you should include a page number. If you use an idea from one of your classmates, give them credit (for example: In Wiki #6, the group wrote that XYZ and I thought ABC…). Formatting: Please use size 12 font, 1-inch margins, Times, Calibri or similar font. Length: You should answer most questions in 50-125 words. Question #6 is 150-200 words.
Choose 3 short questions to answer.
1. Choose two of Daniels’ Nine Ideas about Language (Week 1) and explain them in your own words. Now, identify one example of each idea. Choose an example from our course materials (a documentary, podcast, or example from textbook) and explain how it illustrates the specific idea you’ve chosen.
2. In Ahearn Chapter 1, we are introduced to the idea of language ideology (Week 2).
3. We learn that language is multimodal (Week 3).
Explain what multimodality means. Choose two examples from our course materials and explain how they are multimodal. Explain one way the COVID pandemic might impact the multimodality of language. 4. Conducting ethical research is essential to anthropology (Week 4).
What code of ethics do anthropologists follow?
Why do they follow these ethical practices? Identify one example of ethical or unethical research practices from our course materials. Explain why you believe it is ethical or unethical. If it is unethical, provide a suggestion for making it more ethical. If it is ethical, identify how you might incorporate that ethical practice into your Intercultural Conversation Project.
5. Explain the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis based on your interpretation of the Ahearn reading (Week 6). Include its basic idea, how it came to be and who created it. Identify and describe one example from Lera Boroditsky’s TedTalk and explain how it illustrates the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis.
6. Choose Your Own Option: Create your own question and substitute it for one of the above questions. Long Question: Answer 2 of the 3 questions below.
7. In this essay, I’ll ask you to apply concepts from our chapters to three of our documentaries. You can break this question into smaller chunks by concentrating just on one set of concepts at a time or you can create a more integrated essay.
1) Define key ideas about language acquisition and language socialization. Then, compare and contrast language acquisition and language socialization for the children in the films Speaking in Tongues, Colours of the Alphabet, and Birth of a Language (Week 5).
2) Define speech community and community of practice. Compare and contrast the speech communities and/or communities of practice the children belong to in all three films (Week 7).
3) Compare and contrast the experiences with multilingualism and official languages in all three films (Week 8).
