ENGLISH 119 Final Essay

Final Essay Topic:

This essay is essentially a research paper relating to phonology and morphology, and also involving a specific topic of interest to you. In your first essays, you learned linguistic information about yourselves. In this one, you will learn more about the academic environment involving structures of English and language. You will get a brief introduction into some studies that are being conducted and how and where people present their findings, and you will also learn a little about a topic more specifically interesting to you.

For this essay, you will find TWO (2) scholarly essays/articles dealing phonologically and/or morphologically with a topic of interest to you. You will summarize and analyze both sources (using quotes and examples) from the sources, and then provide a general reaction to the information you learned. These articles tend to be somewhat lengthy, typically running from 15-30 pages, but often going longer. You certainly do not have to cover every single piece of information in both articles. Quite the contrary. Part of your responsibility is to pull out the most useful information and summarize it briefly. What are the main points of the article? Then you will analyze the article. What was interesting and informative? What was missing or lacking? This should generally focus on the information covered, but if you want to discuss such things as writing and presentation style, you can mention that as well. For your general reaction, I want it to be just that, a general reaction. You will have already responded to the essays specifically, but here you can talk about the type of research being conducted, how and where information like this can be used, what else could be studied in these fields, and anything else that seems relevant.

 

Below this I will demonstrate a fairly straightforward and quick way to access various articles/essays that you can use. I will also give you a suggested general outline for the essay. Please remember that the essay must be in MLA format and adhere to standard essay requirements (heading, title, normal font/spacing…)

 

 

How to Access Articles and Scholarly Essays

 

As students of Suffolk County Community College, you have access to the SCCC library, both in person and online. The library subscribes to numerous academic databases, and these are a wonderful tool for research. To get to the library’s main page, go to www.sunysuffolk.edu/library. (Username: paleh39 Password: Suffolkedu44 From there, click on the middle tab “Articles.” If you’re doing this from home, and some point you will need to enter your login information. At this point, you will be in a search engine. Click on the boxes next to “Full Text” and “Peer Reviewed” (this will ensure that you get academic level results as well as full articles and not just titles or abstracts). Then experiment and fill in the search boxes with terms that you find interesting. Try, for example, writing “morphology.” Once you search, you will see that many results come up. Limit the search by writing, for instance “sign language” in the secondary search box. See what comes up. This is where you can tailor your essay toward a topic of interest to you. Obviously many of the studies will be somewhat advanced, but you should find articles that interest you. Look again at the specific topics covered in the phonology and morphology chapters we read. Think of topics (that are related or similar or in the same vein) that are of personal professional, or academic interest to you then find articles on this.

 

 

 

 

General Outline

This essay should be about 5 pages long. Although I don’t normally think of topics in terms of paragraphs or even pages, it will probably break down somewhat like this:

Introduction: ……………………………..1-3 paragraphs

Summary and Analysis of Source 1:……. 1 ½ pages

Summary and Analysis of Source 2:……. 1 ½ pages

General Reaction to the information: ..…..1 page

Conclusion:……………………………… 1-3 paragraphs
