For my capstone, I wanted to study linguistics and focus on how the structure of language could help your ability to comprehend different languages and dialects. I picked this topic because language is used in almost every aspect of our lives, and it’s very important to the development of culture and communication in the world. Throughout the course of the school year, I accumulated research on the traditional foundations of grammar and studied High Valyrian (a fictional language from Game of Thrones) via Duolingo for a more hands-on approach. For my final product I curated a blog website, diving more into linguistic analysis and how understanding the systems can make learning new languages a bit easier. Below are links to my blog and my annotated bibliography.
