Myth: It would be better if everyone spoke English.
In this assignment, you will “de-bunk” the language myth by describing how content covered in the course (ling 100 Communication and Language) exposes it as false, or not entirely true.
This assignment should be written in the format of an encyclopedia or Wikipedia entry, with a general audience in mind. It should be 300-500 words. The content should include: A description of the myth, discussion of its presence or prevalence in the “real world,” and discussion of why it is false, with reference to course content. If aspects of the myth are true, identify those.
This part of the assignment is graded on the basis of both format and content.
Your entry should be submitted as a text box on Canvas. Paper or emailed copies will not be accepted.
