Young women are running out of oxygen. Do you know why most of them sound like this? Surprisingly, there is a word or phrase for the way Kim Kardashian speaks. Kim uses something called a vocal fry, a low creaky vibration tone of voice. In the text, They’re, Like, Way Ahead of the Linguistic Currrrve by Douglas Quenqua, he uses tone, style, and structure to show that America’s young women use vocal fry.
Her actions bring suspense to the story and her devious behaviour makes her an important link to the story’s themes of mystery and horror. When Billy meets the Landlady, she gives Billy a warm welcoming smile and says ‘Please come in.’ Billy relates her to ‘the mother of one’s best schoolfriend welcoming one into the house to stay’. This first impression becomes suspect when the author makes use of foreshadowing through the simile ‘jack-in-the-box’ to show she seems to already be prepared for Billy even though this is the first time they meet. This proves she is an
The author Ray Bradbury is known for his incredibly descriptive writing style. He uses similes, imagery and other element to write his stories, importantly “Homecoming”. He uses imagery, character development and to tell us through Homecoming that it’s okay to be different. One of the very important elements he uses is character development. The Author, Ray Bradbury describes the characters beautifully, allowing the readers imagine the characters and understand their personality, feelings and characteristics.
Scott Fitzgerald is written in first person perspective with Nick Carraway as the narrator because it enables the reader to gain a firm understanding of Nick Carraway’s character as well the events of the narrative. Nick Carraway’s statements alluding to his integrity as a narrator as well as his feelings for Jay Gatsby reveal a lot about his character despite him trying to remain independent of the story and withholding judgement. It’s the minor details that reveals what judgements he has which enables the reader to derive his character. In comparison, Schoemperlen’s uses of second person narration has a much different effect where the narrator’s character is revealed by distancing herself from the narrative and projecting it upon the narratee. Both styles are effective due to the type of narrative they’re telling and what they’re trying to convey to the reader.
Through her observing, she is able to learn for herself how passion can be expressed, and the silliness of the way Polly expresses her passion, as she watches a young Polly interactions with Graham. Through her observations of Polly, Lucy examines what it means to be raised as a proper woman of a particular status and how Polly conforms to those societal expectations. Lucy is shocked by her behavior when she sits on Graham’s lap: “The action, I remember, struck me as strangely rash; exciting the feeling one might experience on seeing an animal dangerous by nature, and but half-tamed by art, too heedlessly fondled. Not that I feared Graham would hurt her, or very roughly check her; but I though she can risk of incurring such a careless, impatient repulse, as would be worse almost to her than a blow” (33). It is within these moments that we can see the first signs of autonomy that Lucy will continue to develop as the narrative moves along.

The imagery had much light and childishness to it. With images such as “it seemed to Myop as she skipped lightly from her house to pigpen to smokehouse that the days had never been as beautiful as these”. As well as having lines such as “she felt light and good in the warm sun”, and “She struck out at random at chickens she liked” to create the feeling of child hood innocence, using all of this light to mean goodness and being unaffected by the harshness of reality. However she also uses the imagery later to show the loss of innocence when she describes everything as darker, when she starts using lines such as “it seemed gloomy in the little clove she found herself in” and “all his cloths had rotted away”. Alice walker is using this imagery to convey that the innocence has been lost at this point, taken by the harshness of reality and death.
In The Secret Life of Bees, Sue Monk Kidd includes an allusion to “Oh! Susanna” to portray May’s unordinary behavior. For example, after meeting May for the first time, Lily thinks: May was simple-minded. I don’t mean retarded … I mean she was naive … plus she was a touch crazy … if you kept things on a happy note, May did fine, but bring up an unpleasant subject--like Rosaleen’s head full of snitches or the tomatoes having rot-bottom--and May would start humming “Oh! Susanna.”
Scout was beginning to put away her tomboyish acts and started acting like a young lady, "She seemed glad to see me when I appeared in the kitchen, and by watching her I began to think there was some skill involved in being a girl". This quote can be seen as a point where Scout started seeing being a girl a good thing rather than bad. Her brother Jem used to make fun of Scout when she would act like a girl, saying that girls are weak. Making this change from being a tough tomboy to a tough girl is a pretty big deal. In chapter 24, when Aunt Alexandra is hosting her missionary tea at the Finch’s Residence, Scout is inside instead of being outside to avoid it.
Perhaps it would be wise of any politician or American citizen, in a sense of personal responsibility, to study Hamilton’s words when looking to decide what the best course of action is in regards at least to taxation; to understand the time period of the writers and ascertain which aspects of their arguments were useful only to the issues of the time, and which were inspired by historical patterns and have continued to hold true to this day. It is of great importance to understand our history, not just to keep from repeating mistakes, but to understand what has allowed our government, created in a time so different from the present, to continue to, for the most part, successfully keep America as a world power and how to use this knowledge to help us modify and improve our situation. This social responsibility, placed upon our generation specifically, is one of figuring out how to alleviate current issues while keeping in mind that any new implementations will have to account for a rapidly changing future. By studying how men like Hamilton achieved this in the past, we improve greatly our chances of succeeding right
