choose one from appendix which u can do better
1. Commenting on the word white, Carter (1998: 22) shows that “even a very ordinary and widely used word can have a complex relationship with its ‘referents’ and with other words with which it exists in a structural semantic network” (R Carter 1998, Vocabulary: Applied Linguistic Perspectives. 2nd edition). Bear in mind these comments:
o Examine the words red and black in terms both of their semantic relations (paradigmatic and syntagmatic, different kinds of meaning e.g. connotational, denotational), in terms of what they refer to and the entities that they modify.
o Compare your findings with the use and meaning of red and black in a language other than English, either through discussing your findings with a native speaker or through your own knowledge of that language.
