Default Wish me luck!

Please wish me luck with the last of my studies for this semester: I have handed in my final essay on Brennan for 300, sat for my 383 exam on Monday, and now I have my exam for 305 tomorrow afternoon.

After this, I have 3 units to go, and my basic B.A. is finished, barring only honours.

Ghyle, may your shamrocks be ever green
And your horeshoe of fortune upturned and agleam

A wizzard to help you to conjure the answers
When tests come up, think of fairie dancers

Picture them doing the tango in stages
To help you remember what's writ on the pages

But most of all keep a big smile on your face
To give you the confidence to finish the race.

The instructors will know when they see your smile
That you are smart, and determined, you are The Great Ghyle!

Finished at last!

I managed to write five questions (I had to do either four or five) and there is one that will make a great discussion topic here.

They included:

* Discuss some of the major reasons for studying the history of the English language.

*What is meant by the 'Appeal to Authority' in the period 1650-1800 and/or what prompted this concern.

*Why did the 'subject dictionary' for English come into being from c. 1930?

and

*How many current 'Englishes' do you feel yourself expected to recognise?

I mentioned the countries of many MoM members, Granath, and Hans, included, for that last one.

at Sandi for her lovely poem!

The unit I studied was the history of the English language, with especial emphasis upon Australian English.

Now I gotta wait for my marks.
