For more course tutorials visit www.uophelp.com Watch the "TED Talks: Deb Roy- The Birth of a Word" video located in this week's Electronic Reserve readings. Discuss the video. Every year, new words get added to the dictionary. This might be a fun exercise from you. Imagine you have to educate someone from the 1950's on some of the new words that have come about since that time. How would you go about teaching them the words?
