https://www.remind.com/join/cmslin"The past, present, and future walked in to a bar...It was TENSE!"Description: We discuss language learning, current issues, and etymology, and we work on logic puzzles which focus on questions involving finding patterns in other languages. All of the information you need to solve the puzzles is in the puzzles themselves. All you need to add is some analytical reasoning and tricky thinking.If this sounds appealing, come to Linguistics Club in room 103 during Rotation A. If you like it, you can work with other students to be a part of the team which will represent Central Magnet School at the Linguistics Olympiad which is held at MTSU in the spring semester.Here are lots of ONLINE practice problems (PDFs also available).
