  • Babies’ babbling
  • Motherese (how care-takers and parents talk to babies)
  • Dialects
  • How your dialects change depending on who you are talking to (code-switching)
  • How the degree of formality changes depending on who you are talking to (register)
  • Various second language phenomena (ex. How your parents can never get rid of their accents after 40 years living in this country, why foreign languages should be taught in grade schools, etc.)
  • How Siri misunderstands your input (Is there a logic to this misunderstanding?)
  • How Google Translate does or does not do its job well.
  • How aphasia affects one’s language ability
  • Euphemisms
  • Politically correct language
  • Dyslexia
  • Inarticulate teenagers (Okay, as an old fogy, I am a little biased. Any gender differences in teens’ inarticulateness? Is the smartphone to blame?)
  • The influence of texting language in our everyday interactions
  • The status of face-to-face conversations

2. Write a two-page report (double-spaced, either APA- or MLA-formatted, whichever you are familiar with) containing the following:
