  • Robert McColl Millar


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.

  2. 2.

    I have went to University.

  3. 3.

    I’m awfully annoyed with that boys.

  4. 4.

    I’ll can see him tomorrow.
