What do the following words (or phrases or names) have in common?
Edgar Hillaire Degas
Pierre Auguste Renoir
Ministry of Employment and Labor
Mill “On Liberty”
Korean Red Ginseng
They’re all words that my 2.4 class wrote down as a part of Bowl of Nouns (a game similar to taboo, but the students make the words).
I don’t know about you, but I don’t know any of these words in Korean, and I only know some of them in ASL, a language I claim to be fluent in. With some notable exceptions (Ministry of Employment and Labor – taken from a poster on the wall) the students took these words either from their vocabulary lists, their textbooks, or their memories.
