Middle School and High School
Club Rotation A
Virtual Meeting Link for 9/20/2021
If you still want to be a part of the club, you may join! Along with taking the survey, please email Mrs. Boost or Mr. Noelle.
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 110 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 MTSU Linguistics Olympiad in the spring semester. Stay tuned!
You can join the CMS Linguistics Remind to get receive monthly NACLO language puzzles, interesting language articles, and info about after-school meetings:
Here are lots of ONLINE practice problems (PDFs also available).
