Hi everyone, I am studying for my M.A. in Linguistics at CSUF. Any fellow linguists here wanna say hello? Anybody using Duolingo, or other methods, to study L2 adult language acquisition?
To be honest, my interest stems from a cultural perspective. I loved growing up in California because there were so many different people and languages and cultures. Being bilingual myself, I really was curious about language and its evolution in general! My favorite subjects in linguistics are phonetics and phonology and morphology. Semantics is interesting but syntax to me is so terrifying oh my gosh lol. It's very logical and analytical which isn't my speed. The only reason I got a B in my syntax class was because my teacher liked my constructed language LOL
Hi Jeremy, so glad, I saw your post on "Discussion" board. Although not officially a linguist, but I have been working for quite some time as one (based on many years of language teaching experiences I have accumulated in a few languages). I would be delighted to open up a dialogue with you sharing our experiences as well as our future plans and ambitions in linguistic sector and market place. If you don't mind I start following your course on "Duolingo" and would like to ask you to do the same, Thx.
