Thurstan - Individual reflection of 'Investigating Language' tasks

Reflecting on the four tasks that we did in Investigating Language, I feel that my weakest area was the questionnaire process. Our group’s questions were not well structured which hindered any really useful conclusions. As a result, I don’t have confidence in this skill. Also, I didn’t have enough practice of transcribing to feel proficient.
I was comfortable with researching and writing the literature review, and I found the Corpus investigation really interesting and look forward to doing more in this area. It was fascinating to discover a deeper meaning and usage of words than is visible on the surface.
