Pop quizlette:

The following quizlette counts for nothing, and is intended to provide no indication about what the instructor expects you to bring to this course, nor what the instructor expects to cover.. People can bring very different backgrounds to this class; this is just a broad attempt to sketch what you might have encountered prior to now.

Rate each of the following phrases on a scale from 1 to 5, where

1 `` I was reading about that last week '',

3 `` I've seen that before '',

5 `` is that really a word/phrase? ''.

Don't spend more than about 8 seconds on each; first impressions are the important thing. Besides, there are no wrong answers....
