  • Robert McColl Millar

Abstract

When introducing the central analytical skills required in linguistics to first year University students, I often attempt the following experiment. I show them these examples:
  1. 1.

    Hands my wash I.

     
  2. 2.

    I have went to University.

     
  3. 3.

    I’m awfully annoyed with that boys.

     
  4. 4.

    I’ll can see him tomorrow.
