Key to Cloze Activity

Old World Language Families

When linguists talk about the historical relationship between languages, they use a tree metaphor. An ancient source (say, Indo-European) has various branches (e.g., Romance, Germanic), which themselves have branches (West Germanic, North Germanic), which feed into specific languages (Swedish, Danish, Norwegian). Lessons on language families are often illustrated with a simple tree diagram that has all the information but lacks imagination. There’s no reason linguistics has to be so visually uninspiring. Minna Sundberg, creator of the webcomic Stand Still. Stay Silent, a story set in a lushly imagined post-apocalyptic Nordic world, has drawn the antidote to the boring linguistic tree diagram.

Also worth checking out is the page before the tree, where she gives a comparison chart of words in the Nordic languages, and illustrates what an outlier Finnish is with the concept of “meow.”

Read and Watch News

Do it on Sky News... I recommend the 3 minute catch up. Be patient with buffering...

Reasons to watch SKY NEWS everyday

 You keep yourself informed about current affairs in the world.

 You listen to different types of register: formal (newsreaders) and informal (people interviewed)

 You listen to different types of accents: people from all over the world and from everywhere in the UK or the USA.

 In only three minutes you hear about several different topics: politics, sports, economy, society, music, environment...

 The news are very similar to the ones you’ve heard in your mother tongue, which helps your understanding.
