Quote where appropriate. Give citations for facts and quotations, indicating the sources for the material you are using.  You should not just copy paragraphs from other sources. Explain the material as clearly as you can in your own words.  The organization of your paper may vary, but here is one possible outline:

Cover page, with title, your name and email, course and instructor
Background and history of the language including information about the author(s)
Purpose of the Language
Main Language Features
Unique/Interesting Language Features
Impact of the Language
Current status
Summary and conclusions
List of references used and cited
The paper should be 3-4 double-spaced pages in length, not including the cover page and references.  Use APA-style format with 1 inch margins and Times New Roman 12 point font.

You should use at least three references.  At least one of the references must be scholarly in nature.  Articles from magazines and Web sites are acceptable but should not be considered as reliable as peer-reviewed journals or books.
