Where do words come from? Where did the first English word come from?
I will be curious about what students will postulate. I found an interesting video which shows an animated video on the beginnings of the English Language.
It is in chapters so I can show relevant parts as we work on the word study.
I thought as I was teaching roots/ suffixes that I would have students put parts together to create new words.
I also want to discuss how new words are created and how new words are chosen for the dictionary every year.
Just some thoughts...
