Inventing Words; Playing with Language

We’ve wrapped up a study of the English Language along a number of lines (borrowed words from other languages, how roots interact with prefix and suffix parts, etc.) Our culmination is when students invent their own words, which are then added to an online dictionary that we have been doing since 2005. (I’ll share that link another day when I get this year’s words into place — they did the initial wiki work yesterday but I need to do a bit more).

They also podcast their word and definition. Take a listen and check out the word cloud:

Here are the podcasts of your invented words:

Peace (in the word),
Kevin
