  1. 1. KBAT 5Items not specificallycovered in class
  2. 2. Literary Tradition This is simply a culture’s system of written communication. Not all spoken languages have a literary tradition, or written language.
  3. 3. Official LanguageA language designated by a government or constitution as the official language of the country. For instance, although English is the language used in the United States, the constitution has NOT designated it as The Official Language. No one is required by law to learn it here. Many countries DO have one or more designated official languages.
  4. 4. Orthography Simply stated, it’s spelling. We could get complicated and say that it’s the aspect of language study concerned with letters and their sequences in words. Or the relationship between phonemes and graphemes in a language. But spelling will do, although sometimes included in orthography, besides spelling, is hyphenation, capitalization and punctuation.
  5. 5. Trade LanguageA language—often lingua franca or pidgin—used by speakers of different native languages for communication in commercial trade.
  6. 6. Vernacular Non-standard language or dialect native to the locale or social group.
  7. 7. Slang Wordsand expressions that aren’t considered standard in a speaker’s language or dialect, but are considered acceptable when used socially. An informal way to communicate with peers.
  8. 8. Accent Dialect. The way you pronounce a word.
  9. 9. Describe the followingcharacteristics of English—itsspatial variation The spacing of English speaking countries across the earth. If you looked at a map of English speaking countries, how are they spaced? Where are they? How about if you add in places where English is a second language? And then toss in places where English is somewhat understood. What would the map look like?
  10. 10. Explain how toponyms arederived Derived means to trace from a source or origin. In other words, how do we come up with toponyms, or place names?
  11. 11. From Historical Culture Old English towns often use the word “chester,” from the Latin “camp.” Winchester. Manchester. Anglo Saxons used “ing” meaning “family.” Anglo Saxons also used “ham” from hamlet, or little town or village. Birmingham, Nottingham
  12. 12. Meanings in Other Languages Arab names: Cairo means “victorious” Sudan means “land of the blacks” Sahara means “wasteland”
  13. 13. Remembering your Homeland New England New York New Amsterdam New Jersey New Mexico New Hampshire
  14. 14. To Honor Kings and Queens Virginia—thevirgin Queen Elizabeth Carolina—King Charles II (Latin for Charles is Carolus) Georgia—King George II Louisiana—King Louis XIV
  15. 15. Heros Washington Jackson, Mississippi Austin, Texas Lincoln, Nebraska
  16. 16. Previous Inhabitants Brukelyn (Brooklyn) Haarlem (Harlem) (The Dutch were in New York—called New Amsterdam—before the English were.)
  17. 17. Fads After our Revolutionary War we had a fad of classical revival and named towns things like: Troy Athens Rome Sparta
  18. 18. Others Spanish names Native American names Religious names
  19. 19. Classifying Toponyms There are two parts to classifications—generic and specific. The generic classifies the place to be named and the specific modifies it. For instance— Rio Grand (River Big—or big river) Sierra Nevada (Mountain Range Snowy—or snowy mountains) In English we flip the order of classification and modify first—Hudson River, Long Island, Rocky Mountains, Utah Lake, Antelope Island
