Question:

In speaking the words out loud, these seven words have something in common, regardless of spelling and meaning. Choklad, sked, sjukhus, skingra, shock, skjuta, schema. Can you identify the common, verbal, denominator for these words?

Answer:

These seven words are all pronounced with the Swedish "SJ" sound at the beginning. The sound can be mimicked by forming your lips into a small o-shape, almost like a whistle, and exhaling.

Question:

What is unusual about the sentence 'I wish I were there', and what makes it correct, still?

Answer:

Usually, in sentences where the subjective is singular (I, me, one person)), 'was' is the correct choice of verb. This is something we see everywhere in the English language, such as in 'I was there'. What makes the sentence unusual is that it expresses a wish. When expressing a wish in a sentence, the correct choice of verb is 'were' instead of 'was'! The same rule applies to sentences with 'if' in them. Instead of writing 'if I was there', the correct choice of verb is 'were', making the sentence 'If I were there' correct! An easy way to think about it is to think about facts and imagination. With facts, the correct choice is 'was'. 'I was there. It is true'. With sentences imagining how things could be, 'were' is the correct choice. 'I wish I were there. It is nice to imagine'.

Answer:

ETHNOGRAPHY is the study of one specific culture with the purpose of establishing a description of that particular culture. ETHNOLOGY, on the other hand, compares differences between two or more cultures and aim to establish the reason behind these differences. The main difference between these two concepts in anthropology is that ETHNOGRAPHY is descriptive while ETHNOLOGY is comparative and investigative.
