My gosh things have gone fast. I’m at the end of my first week of school and the end of my second full week in Chicago.

This is intense. The class whose reading list I posted, Language and Culture, is the most difficult class I have ever taken. Not only does it require learning linguistics, but also the meta language of linguistics in real time. Meta language is language created to describe and categorize language. Its like attending a class that is taught in code or another language that sounds strangely like English but at the same time is not English. All of this makes note taking difficult as I have yet to master the skill of writing while attempting to decode the language of the course.

Oy. I promise I’ll keep the meta and modalities to a minimum while I work on internalizing the lexicon.
