i'm still trying to get the other classes i wanted more [specifically: war and society, form adn theory of fiction, and african american lit], but this works well enough if i can't get into those
state: almost satisfied
np: Paul Oakenfold - Lost in Love
For all your love of math, this looks like an English Major's schedule. What's the deal, dude?
i am an english major..
(well i will be, but i forgot to sign up last month so i have to wait til next semester to register)
i think i'm gonna get a math minor tho
I was/am one too even though I don't do anything with it now.
Beware the Ides of Linguistics. They can kill you. (except for robotic math type people. they get sick enjoyment from the systematic deconstruction of ideas and humanism.)
i was cleaning out my lj email folder a bit and found this.. did i mention that i'm now planning to get a linguistics minor? =)
The only human thing about linguistics is questions like the one I put here
Otherwise, it's soulless clinical scientism parading as an English scholar.
because there are a lot of questions like that. how people learn/create/adopt languages, how languages differ, etc. i'm taking a class next year on how english differs all over the world, in all the places it is a native language and just in general use, and how it affects politics and the local langauges, and etc
for our term paper in my class now, we have to compare english grammatically to anotehr language. i'm going to use one of the created 'universal' languages - like esperanto - because i'm curious what people thought of as the most sensible easy way to use language, and how it works next to a natural language
