Hello everyone. My name is Meera (you may know me from the language forum Unilang) but if not nice to meet you! David has asked me to be a guest writer on this blog and I figured the best way to start is to tell about my language journey.
Hi all, after seeing this done on a blog I follow, I’ve decided to ask some of my language journey friends to post guest posts on here.
This past week I didn’t do much language study again. I had my Spanish class last week Monday, which I believe I mentioned in last week’s MLJ update. Apart from that, I mostly used French, Spanish, or Portuguese whenever I could with friends via text, Facebook, Whatsapp, Hangouts, or Skype.
Hi all, I’m afraid I need to postpone this week’s lesson. This week has been a struggle for me, and I haven’t had the time nor ability to write a lesson. I will try and see if I can do it on Saturday. But if not, I will resume with the next lesson next week Thursday.
My apologies that this is a day late.
I didn’t do as much language study as I would’ve liked to last week. The languages I worked on were Albanian, Portuguese, French, and a little bit of Albanian and Japanese.
Welcome back to my series on linguistics. In last week’s lesson, we looked at airstream mechanisms – what they are and the different types. These mechanisms allow us to make different types of sounds which can then be used in speech. This week, we will look at these different types of speech sounds.
While writing the previous post, Linguistic Lesson #4, I briefly had a moment where I wasn’t sure whether to use “on to” or “onto”. So I googled the difference, and found a good explanation.
