Introduction to Linguistics: Your Assignment

Your Term Paper

You are required to complete a 3-5 page research paper to be submitted at the end of the semester. Topics for research should be determined, posted to your Class Blog, and approved by your instructor by midterm. Ideas for the starting point for research topics can be found at the end of each chapter in your textbook under Tasks; however, you are not limited to these topics, and some of the topics listed might not work for this assignment.

In your paper, please be sure to include citation of at least two sources other than our textbook, either as quotations or as paraphrased passages. Use APA or MLA style consistently to cite your sources.

You can get help with your research project from a librarian either by going to the library in person or by posting to the "Library Research Discussion" topic in this course. A librarian has been embedded in the course to help you.


You can find additional information on your assignment and due dates in your course shell in BlackBoard.
