  1. 1. Ogs presents...
  2. 2. Study an ethnolect that you are aware of in Melbourne and examine how it deviates from Standard English. You will need to define what an ethnolect is and be culturally sensitive. Make sure you explain why the ethnolect is formed the way it is (e.g ‘interference’ from a first language)
  3. 3. An ethnolect is a dialect of language spoken by a certain ethnic group. An ethnolect is formed when an ethnic group start speaking another language and form colloquialism and many times a different accent.
  4. 4.  Fewer vowel contrasts – Mandarin vowels are articulated a lot slower than English Chinese diphthongs are normally pronounced with smaller tongue and lip movements
  5. 5.  /b/, /d/, /g/ are not voiced /v/ does not exist /n/ and /z/, /l/ and /r/ are difficult to distinguish More than one consonant in a word is rare in Mandarin
  6. 6.  Reductions do not occur in Mandarin as much as English Mandarin is completely tonal
  7. 7.  Mandarin words normally consist of one or two morphemes Mandarin does not use prefixes or suffixes
  8. 8.  In Mandarin there are singular or plural forms of nouns In Mandarin there is no need for articles Mandarin does not have strong distinctions between prepositions
