Sample text

The speaker has an image in mind, and uses linguistic tools to encourage some audience to create a similar image in their minds. That mental image can be thought of as a “scene” with actors, props, and activities interacting in potentially complex ways. The scene may be an actual or fictional series of events occurring over time, in which case we may say that the discourse produced is N A R R A T I V E . Or the scene may involve a description of some concrete thing or abstract idea, in which case the speaker engages in E X P O S IT O R Y discourse.

If it were not for his legendary skill as a military leader and zeal as English patriot, Modern England could very well have become a Scandinavian country, with the majority language becoming a Scandinavian variety, similar to modern Danish or Norwegian. What we know today as “English” may have become a kind of regional minority dialect. Over the years and centuries, as the Scandinavian immigrants fought, traded, intermarried, and simply lived among the Anglo-Saxon and Celtic natives, their languages became interwoven into the rich tapestry now described as English.

ST E M C H A N G E is a change in shape that does not involve the addition of any prefix or suffix. For example, the difference in form between sing and sang cannot be called A F FI X A T IO N (a cover term that includes prefixation and suffixation) because there is no specific word piece that has been added to the stem. Rather, the stem vowel has just changed from i ([ɩ]) to a ([æ]). One might ask how this is different from “weak suppletion” described above. The difference is that sing and sang can be related by a pattern (“change i to a to form the past tense”) that applies to several other verbs like drink/drank, sink/sank, sit/sat, etc.
