The page for the latest edition of the course is found at Ling 215 Fall 2011.
Words in English is a redesigned layout of course materials prepared by Suzanne Kemmer along with some links to student work and external sites (credit is indicated where material is not by Prof. Kemmer). The site can either be used as part of the Ling 215 course (accessed via the coursepage) or as a stand-alone resource on English Words and the English language. Site design is by James Jirtle.
A new neologisms page, the Rice University Neologisms Database, is under development. A preliminary version is accessible now at Neologisms. It is in the process of being revamped this year to add full search functionality and will be then moved to a permanent URL.
Some neologisms collected by previous classes of Ling 215 are found at:
Neologisms, Fall 2003. Part of the redesigned Words in English site above.
New Word Journal Interactive, 1998-2002 Web interface. Designed by Jenn Drummond. Click on the link under Output near the bottom, "View a list of existing entries", to see the collection of words.
New Words in English, 1996-97 A collection of new words (neologisms) begun in Fall 1996 from Word Journal entries by students in this class.
