I watched a webcast in the summer where a teacher was talking to her kids about language . She was specifically talking about words such as Skype, Twitter, Tweet, Facebook, Facebooked, texted, Facetimed, Instagrammed, etc. They all agreed that it was essentially a new language and the assignment was to write a dictionary for this new language as a group effort. There were various steps to it but that was the main idea.
I thought that was an excellent assignment.
