Such a precious collection about vocabulary. It’s shows great experience that those gained on their life and conveyed messages for others.

Tuesday, October 25th 2016

So M Gill, did language originate from imitating sounds?

Tuesday, October 25th 2016

A quiet and nice lesson by a quiet and nice professor. Thanks Gill.

This lesson has made me remember that when i was very young and i was living in a country place, sometime I yowled to the moon togheter my wolf dog.
I find that the connection of these onomatopeic words (like every word in effect) with personal events could make them more easy to remember.
Thanks very much like always Gill.

Tuesday, October 25th 2016

Excellent lesson! Thank you, Gill.

If you want to hear some of the words used in a song (such as moan, mutter, sputter), make sure to check out the sorrowful song “Memory” from the musical “Cats” composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber. There’re even different versions of the song. It’s been also translated into several languages. E.g. “Recuerdo” in Spanish; in Hungarian it was sang by Jimmy Zámbó – “Éjfél” (Midnight).

    I remember Batman (1965) broadcast TV, there was fight scenes you can to read onomatopeias: “POW” “CRASH” “SPLASH” I liked so much, so bizarre.

Thanks a lot Gill, it’s the right time for this lesson, since we just had a lecture this week in Linguistics concerning the origin of language and one of those theories is “the natural sound theory” in other words: echoic, onomatopoeia. So did language in general appeared thus?

What are these words and what do you calls these words in English?
Is there a complete categorization for these words?
These are really confusing for me. Help me. Thank you.
If it is possible for you, please make a video for these words.

Thursday, October 27th 2016

hi,at the beginning of this lesson the teacher said: Today we are going to be looking at…
as far as I know after be going to we must put an infinitive, but why here is said “…be looking at…”?
Could anyone help me please?

Thursday, October 27th 2016

    because Be is the infinitive she used.

    Hello Sofia,

    How are you? If you want, we can communicate in English. I believe this will improve our language skills. Besides, I know the Russian language too. If you find yourself interested in my suggestion, please write to my e-mail: seferova.r@gmail.com

    Kind Regards,
