Today I must choose a topic to pursue for my Open Inquiry Assignment. I have two (very different) areas of interest at the moment. My first idea was to learn how to knit. I imagine that I will enjoy knitting one day, so why not use this time to learn now? On the other hand, I’m totally fascinated by actors who learn and use foreign accents in their roles. So, I thought about researching some linguists and attempting a few accents on my own. However, after further consideration I realized that I could potentially offend people by doing so. I certainly don’t want my admiration to be perceived as some kind of mockery. I plan on discussing with both my peers and professor before making my final decision… stay tuned.
