Please write an 8-page paper on Sociolinguists. The topic I chose is “Sociolinguists and Gender,” that is not a title; it’s just the topic I chose when I was reading to choose the references. The paper should be typed in Times New Roman, size 12 font, double-spaced, and with 1-inch margins. The format of the references is APA. PLEASE USE ALL 4 REFERENCES I HAVE ATTACHED.
I need 2-page of the bachelor thesis proposal first before writing my bachelor thesis.
For instance, when occupations are translated from a language like English, which mostly uses gender-neutral words, to a language like German, which mostly uses a feminine and a masculine version for an occupation, a decision must be made by the MT System. Recent research showed that MT systems are biased toward stereotypical translations of occupations.
I would like to reconstruct the attached study.
As I was suggested to use studies that define gender verbs and adjectives, any suggestions regarding this are welcome.
After this thesis, I would also like to ask to write the bachelor’s thesis.
I am reachable anytime so please feel free to write me if you have any questions.
I very much appreciate your support.
Answer all parts of the three questions for the attached assignment. You may refer to powerpoint provided for reference.
Write a brief descriiption of your topic, and why it’s interesting to you. (100-150 words)
Find 5 Peer-reviewed Journal articles that each provide relevant information about your topic.
One article can be a review article. The others should report on original research.
At least 3 of the articles need to be published in the last 10 years. The others can be older. Your goal will be to find a few sources that represent the current state of knowledge.
Construct a descriiptive annotated bibliography for these 5 sources. (~300 words each), being careful to avoid plagiarism.
Include a summary statement at the end, synthesizing what you learned. (~200 words)
You only need to do four I will provide one that I did to show what I need below this.
Burns, Tracey C., et al. “The Development of Phonetic Representation in Bilingual and
Monolingual Infants: Applied Psycholinguistics.” Cambridge Core, Cambridge
University Press, 11 June 2007.
This article looks into phonetic representations in infants in bilingual households being exposed to French and English from birth and compares it to the phonetic representations of infants born in monolingual households being exposed only to English. This article uses infants across three age groups: 6-8, 10-12 and 14-20 months in order to see if bilingual infants would develop and show two phonetic representations for both English and French. The speech sounds chosen for the test groups were from a narrow range of the VOT continuum as English and French languages place their boundaries between the voiced and voiceless categories differently. The findings of the first experiment with 6-8 year olds, as expected due to their young age, saw no real differences between the two categories of test subjects. The second experiment testing infants 14-20 months old found much different results, as instead of responding alike, the bilingual infants responded quickly to both English and French showing their sensitivity to phonetic boundaries consistent with both languages. In their third and final experiment, they looked at ages 10-12 months finding similar results to the second experiment as the bilingual infants were able to notice the phonetic boundaries of both languages. Overall, the researchers found through the results of the second and third studies that the time in which a bilingual infant takes to develop phonetic representation in both French and English is not delayed, and may be very similar to monolingual infants.
I will also attach a screenshot of what my teacher provided.

Research Essay Requirement – Critical Analysis
Answer the following question. (Total 100 marks)
This is a mini-research project which appraises the issues surrounding sociolinguistic approaches to language and power – specifically, critical sociolinguistics.
Critical sociolinguistics aims to contribute to addressing social inequities through changes in the way we speak or use language in general. In other words, as an approach to the study of social discourse, it assumes that language is implicated in social inequalities, so its main concern is to find out how this is so and what can be done to change it for the betterment of society.
Select a context (e.g. home, school, office, hospital, courtroom, shop) which will enable you to carry out a critical sociolinguistic observation of power differentials at play.
Based on actual data examples in your chosen context, examine and critique the issue of language variation and use. Data sources may include but not be limited to:
• Written and spoken media
• Electronic communication
• Cross-cultural/cross-ethnic communication
In your critique, discuss some of the factors affecting language and power. You may wish to consider the following variables:
• social distance between the speaker and the addressee
• relative power of one over the other
• degree of imposition associated with the interaction (in terms of, for example, goods and services required);
• relative status of language or dialect, code-switching
• age, gender and class
• politeness markers such as pronoun choice
• power and resistance, signs of struggle
• register and style
• use of anti-language
Marking will be holistic. The following percentage breakdown only indicates the relative importance of the various components.
a. A brief discussion of the context, i.e. the issue of language variation and use in the selected setting (20 %)
b. A critical discussion of relevant factors that affect language variation and use, with clear examples from your data (60 %)
c. Quality of research and writing (20 %)

Content: Please use the following critical analysis template to write the paper.
Important Note (PLEASE READ)
I have decided to use my all-time favourite movie, Matilda (1996), to critically analyse the language and power used in this film. My Research Critical Analysis Essay will also look at child’s rights, origins, and development regarding young people and children. As my media theme source is analysed, I will provide a debate or argument about it. I will examine the policies related to children’s rights in care (UNICEF’s Convention on the Rights of the Child) and critically analyse the media source alongside some sociolinguistics and early childhood theories. The paper should consider how these ideas play out from the early childhood teacher’s perspective at the present world. The paper will be positive and inspirational. My media source Matilda will be looking at power and powerlessness and the notion of advocacy. At the end of the essay, I will summarise and pull together all the arguments.
Matilda’s (1996) movie in a nutshell: Sweet and bright little Matilda Wormwood, a child of wondrous intelligence, is different from the rest of her family. After being misunderstood by everyone and ignored at home, she escapes into a world of reading, honing her skills, and exercising her mind so much that she develops telekinetic abilities.
Life lesson learnt I from the film Matilda (Please add the following points to support any theoriest)
Reading is good for the soul
As she struggles to understand or be understood by her own family, Matilda teaches us that reading can provide an escape. A great quote from the book says, “The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives.”
The strength to stand up for yourself
Matilda is a show that will give you the courage to stand up for yourself, no matter what kind of abuse you are subjected to. She endures verbal abuse at home before entering a world of verbal and physical abuse at school.
‘If it’s not right, you have to put it right.’
Matilda shows us that if you ‘sit around and let them get on top, you won’t change a thing.
Teachers can either inspire or intimidate
Never listen to those who say anything like, “I’m smart,you’re dumb. I’m big, you’re little. I’m right you’re wrong!”
Dance like nobody is watching!

The purpose of this exercise is to write about a feature or question that may be interesting from a
sociolinguistic point of view. Your observation can be based on any kind of language material –
your own experience, a conversation you overheard, an audio recording, a video, a TV show, a
newspaper, a novel, an email message… In a nutshell, anything you encounter in your everyday
life. You will write a short summary of this observation, answering the three questions below. You
should draw on what we have learned in the course this semester in order to make your
observation and to demonstrate your understanding of how it relates to the concepts, previous
research, and methodologies that we have encountered.
Note that we are describing language use, not judging it, so avoid prescriiptive value
judgements and stereotyping.
Your observations do not have to be about English – in fact, you are encouraged to share
observations on other languages (though this is not a requirement).
A number of suggested topics are listed below, but observations related to any aspect of the
course material or sociolinguistics more generally are welcome.
I am applying to NYU as an economics student. I come from India , I have travelled 20 + countries and written a book ( milesandmoments ) on amazon.

need to bring out value of NYU and how much rich experience can shape and grow this community
Part 1: This assignment is designed to provide you with an opportunity to find and generate APA style references about the assessment and treatment of voice and resonance disorders. Specifically, you are to develop an APA style bibliography of 5 research articles that focus on cause(s), assessment and/or behavioral treatment of voice and resonance disorders (behavioral treatment is the therapy that we apply). Two (2) articles should be related to the same topic, but the others can be unrelated.
You may want to begin by looking briefly in your text for information and key words you can search on-line. It may provide you with some ideas.
Start with the ASHA website, and look for the Evidence Map in Voice Disorders, which can be found in the ASHA Practice Portal (https://www.asha.org/Practice-Portal/Clinical-Topics/Voice-Disorders/ (Links to an external site.)). You can also look in the databases in the Library. I have found Science Direct and Academic Search Premier to be very helpful search engines, and The Journal of Voice is a very strong journal for articles on these topics. You will be able to find what you need using these 2 resources, but you may search elsewhere if you wish. I want you to get the experience of using these resources.
Once you found five, write the references for these articles in APA format. APA format is very specific and can be found on-line (The Purdue OWL, etc.). Ultimately, you are generating a bibliography of sources about voice and resonance disorders.
Submit your bibliography. The papers will be graded according to content, organization, and mechanics with particular attention to APA style.
Each of your references will be formatted like the one below (Note the level of detail, organization, capitalization, and punctuation). The bibliography should be alphabetized.
Smith, J. E. & Smith, J. C. (2016). The effects of yawn-sigh on vocal nodules. The
Journal of Voice Disorders, 12(3), 19-26.
Part 2 (Handed in separately)
For this assignment, you will select 2 of the articles from your bibliography (Research Assignment One). Then, summarize each one according to the following format:
APA reference at the top of the summary (written in the format in Assignment One)
Purpose of the study or article (1-2 sentences)
Participants and methods used in the study (1-2 paragraphs)*
Results of the study (1-2 paragraph)*
*If your article is not a formal research study, you can use 3-4 paragraphs to summarize the article’s content.
Each summary will be 1-2 pages, double-spaced. You do not need to cite the articles in the summaries, but they should be well written and organized. Your paper will be graded according to content, organization and mechanics (grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc.).
The papers will be graded according to content, organization, and mechanics with particular attention to APA style. If papers are passed in late, a penalty will be imposed.
