STANFORD LINGUIST 62n   -     Winter 2012
Homework 1
Due: Before class starts on Thursday Jan 12

  1. Create a blogspot blog at

  2. Write a post explaining why you're taking the class, and telling everyone else something about your language and food backgrounds.

  3. Write a post that includes something about menu language, dish-names, waiter language, or food names. For menus you should be able to find interesting stuff on the web! If you speak a second language, see what you can say that's interesting about menus in that language! Or looking at some English-language menus is fine if you can find some interesting facts about the language to talk about! Or for food names or waiter language, see what you can find that's interesting! Remember to do the reading for the week before writing your post, and try to relate your post to the readings!
