The first circuit was established in 1887 as a Minor League Baseball "no classification" league and existed for that year only; the league played four seasons, 1895 to 1898 as a "no classification" league. Progressing into the 20th century, the circuit played in 1905-06 as a class D league and this stint lasted two years; the last segment of the league operated as a class D league from 1909–11, 1913-14. The original KSL ceased operation in 1911, merged with the Central Kansas League, the 1912 season was played under the CKL name. In 1913, the CKL switched back to the Kansas State League name.

Oahu Interscholastic Association

The Oahu Interscholastic Association is an athletic conference composed of all public secondary schools on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, U. S. A; the OIA was first founded in 1940 as the Rural Oahu Interscholastic Association. The five founding schools were Castle High School, Kahuku High School, Leilehua High School, Waialua High & Intermediate School and Waipahu High School; the OIA comprised all the rural schools on Oahu, which were all of the schools that were not situated in the main city of Honolulu. This changed however in 1970 with the addition of the five former public school members of the Interscholastic League of Honolulu - Farrington High School, Kaimuki High School, McKinley High School, Roosevelt High School and Kalani High School.

Function word

In linguistics, function words are words that have little lexical meaning or have ambiguous meaning and express grammatical relationships among other words within a sentence, or specify the attitude or mood of the speaker. They signal the structural relationships that words have to one another and are the glue that holds sentences together, thus they form important elements in the structures of sentences. Words that are not function words are called content words: these include nouns, verbs and most adverbs, although some adverbs are function words. Dictionaries define the specific meanings of content words, but can only describe the general usages of function words. By contrast, grammars describe the use of function words in detail, but treat lexical words in general terms only. Since it was first proposed in 1952 by C. C. Fries, this distinguishing of function/structure words from content/lexical words has been influential in the grammar used in second language acquisition and English language teaching.

Function words might be prepositions, auxiliary verbs, grammatical articles or particles, all of which belong to the group of closed-class words. Interjections are sometimes considered function words but they belong to the group of open-class words. Function words might not be inflected or might have affixes. Function words belong to the closed class of words in grammar in that it is uncommon to have new function words created in the course of speech, whereas in the open class of words new words may be added readily. See neologism; each function word either gives some grammatical information on other words in a sentence or clause, cannot be isolated from other words, or it may indicate the speaker's mental model as to what is being said. Grammatical words, as a class, can have distinct phonological properties from content words. Grammatical words sometimes do not make full use of all the sounds in a language. For example, in some of the Khoisan languages, most content words begin with clicks, but few function words do.

In English few words other than function words begin with voiced th. The following is a list of the kind of words considered to be function words: articles — the and a. In some inflected languages, the articles may take on the case of the declension of the following noun. Pronouns — inflected in English, as he — him, she — her, etc. adpositions — uninflected in English conjunctions — and -- uninflected in English subordinating conjunctions — if well, thus, etc. auxiliary verbs — forming part of the conjugation, always inflected particles -- up, on, down interjections — sometimes called "filled pauses" expletives — take the place of sentences, among other functions. Pro-sentences — yes, etc. Content word, words that name objects of reality and their qualities Grammaticalization, process by which words representing objects and actions transform to become grammatical markers Kordić, Snježana.

Lang, Levitre was considered one of the best guards available in the 2009 NFL draft, he has been compared to Todd Herremans by The Sporting News, to Josh Beekman by CBS Sports.
