I need an explanation for this Linguistics question to help me study.

Your report should consist of approximately 550-700 words (~ 2 double-spaced pages with 1-inch margins; 12- point font). All papers should demonstrate mastery of grammar, punctuation, spelling and syntax expected of college level work. Use of APA / MLA style is required for references. If you need writing assistance, please seek help from the Teaching+Learning Commons. All papers are to be word-processed, proofread, and solely the work of the author.

This word count does not include the appendix. The report will be evaluated along the following dimensions (The remainder of your grade will be based on the submission itself: whether you submitted a report of the appropriate length, whether you submitted all the required components, etc.)

1. Essay structure, grammar, and style. Introduction, body, conclusion. Grammar and style should be formal and coherent.

2. Evidence of field-visit and field notes. Provide photographic evidence of visit, and a scan of your field notes as an appendix.
