The Pattern of the Past in North Africa [Audio]
Speaker(s): Dr James McDougall | South Asia, China, Europe, North America, sub-Saharan Africa: most major world regions have histories that can be clearly characterised. The Maghrib, despite being perhaps historically the first region to be provided with a model of historical development (by Ibn Khaldun), remains to a large degree unidentifiable with its own distinctive 'pattern of the past'.

9.2.2 Method of constant stimuli

This method is similar to that described above but has two advantages over the method of limits. The first is that it's designed to overcome bias inherent in presenting stimuli in a set order.

Parts of Speech Song
This is a song about parts of speech that is sung to the tune of a famous pop rock song.  It is a non-professional production and the lighting is dark. These are some of the lyrics to the song:
Adverbs win, pronouns lose
Verbs were born to sing the blues
Oh, the sentence never ends,
It goes on and on and on and on.
Adverb clauses, being used incorrectly,
Their subjects, searching for a verb.
Colon issues, places other than your body.
