This is a little experiment I’ll be doing for my bilingualism class next week which I thought I’d try out on you first.
Imagine you’re making a cartoon featuring the things listed below as characters. Which ones would you assign a male voice to, and which ones would you assign a female voice to?
1. A rock 2. A tree 3. A river 4. A bear 5. A salmon 6. A boat
Could you also tell us your native language, and whether you speak any other languages fluently? If you do speak other languages, when did you acquire them, do you use them regularly, and would you consider yourself bilingual or multilingual?
