The language has key features such as the phonetics and morphemes among other linguistic structures. In phonetics we have vowels and constants. There is also the phonemic inventory which is a set of consonants…

We detail phonemic inventories, phonotactics, Inflectional morphology and simple sentences in the language studied. We also discuss about pragmatics of wordplay and question formation strategies.
The language chosen here is called Pitjantjatjara. It is from central Australia and it is a dialect of the Western Desert Language (Andrew).this is because of its interestingness and its similarity to my language Sei. My consonant inventory consist bilabial, labiodental, alveolar, retroflex, palatal, velar, uvular, and glottal.
There is Glottal, Uvular and Labiodental in my language which are not there in Pitjantjatjara. However both Pitjantjatjara and Sei do have Plosives, Nasals and Bilabials. It has 20 constants, 20 vowels from front to back and from close to open.
In “sei”, onsets are required and complex onset are allowed. For instance, the word [ʋɸy], which means water in English can be CCV and CC is the onset is the nucleus. In this case complex onsets are allowed in “sei”.
Polar questions are the questions want more complex answers other than yes or no. Content questions are the questions that use “what” to ask the question (Bischoff and Fountain). In my language, polar questions are similar to those in English. However, content questions in my language we put “what” in front of the sentence instead of the beginning. For example:
In this paper my goal was to understand linguistics and I have focused on the key aspects of linguistics. I have focused on the sound system, morphology and syntax and question formation and pragmatics. From these chapters I feel I know linguistics and I realize that every language is dynamic and

Discretion in public administration context refers to the level of freedom that a bureaucrat may have to decide what he/she should do in any particular situation. Street-level or front level government employees should have some discretion in their day-to-day activities because sometimes they have to take critical decisions on their own in order to implement government decisions and policies properly.
The movie is about a revenge taken by the Final girl-Loner Veronica on boys who entices school girls into the forests in order to slay them for sports. The plot of the movie is similar to several horror movies that had been produced earlier than 1990s, whereby a chain of people are killed one after another by an assassin accompanied by rising terror, ending up in the peak whereby the final member of the group to survive is a woman/girl who either conquers the killer, or escapes.
This period presented us with a great number of artists and thinkers, whose theories were the results of new outlook. In the previous epochs a man was viewed as a weak, dependent and uncertain creature, whose destiny was mainly predefined by gods or other people.
The two tribes had various similarities (Bowen 32). To begin with, the two tribes were both natives of North America. In addition, the two tribes both believed in the supernatural and practiced religion with priests being a common feature between them. However, the two tribes had more differences.
Two of the topics that I wrote about during this semester is individuality and the transforming power of seeing art. In looking at art, I believe that I am transformed through every experience, even when the art is not appealing. The same has happened during the course of the semester as I have worked towards finding a way to express myself.
