This is an example of how the capitalized words appear to be more important than those left in lowercase. Moreover, by using capitalization Dickinson emphasizes the words that she wants the readers to pay more attention to and find their
In the passage that begins “I am a cripple.” by Nancy Mairs, she describes why she chooses to identify herself and only herself as a cripple. With Mairs tone, word choice, and rhetorical structure, she is able to clearly state why she identifies as a “cripple.” Initially you can tell that Mairs has a serious tone towards her writing with a very simple, clear, and effective opening statement. Mairs opens her writing by saying “I am a cripple.” which instantaneously creates a serious tone. Mairs continues with her serious tone which keeps the reader engaged. Mairs supports her tone by addressing her issues with terms kin to cripple from simple ones such as: “handicapped” and “disabled” to the more uncommon yet euphemistic terms such as: “differently
Cullington after summarizing her research and having said both sides of opinions about texting affecting writing, she used the results as evidence of why Cullington disagreed that texting has no effect in writing. “On the basis of my own research, experts research, and personal observations, I can confidently state that texting is not interfering with student’s use of standards written English…” (Cullington 370). As you can see she used the strategy of disagreeing but with an explanation and summarized what her discoveries were. Cullington also agreed that texting is used on an everyday basis and at every moment that is possible. To agree to this Cullington included her own personal experience as a reference that texting effectively is used anywhere at any
Privileged. It is OK to admit that” (3). Her unprofessional use of rhetoric is not exclusive to this example — a plethora of instances are riddled throughout her article. Moreover, her use of rude and rhetorical language is childish, certainly not a characteristic of civil discourse. There is a clear distinction to be made between professional and unprofessional dialogue, especially at this level.
An example in the book can be found in the conversation between Mrs. Elton and Mr. Knightley. During their conversation, Mrs. Elton feels bad about Mr. Knightley 's manners, and she says: "That I am sure you would. Indeed, I do you justice, my good friend. Under that peculiar sort of dry, blunt manner, I know you have the warmest heart" (Austen 190). Although in an unfavorable situation, Mrs. Elton tries to remain polite and use appropriate vocabulary.
In Antigonick, “This is Eurydike’s monologue” (Carson) prefaces her monologue. Immediately, the meta-textual comment portrays Eurydike as an emotionally detached character, as it gives the impression she has a more narrative role as opposed to an emotionally invested one. On the contrary, Eurydice in Fagles’ translation addresses listeners with, “My countrymen, / all of you” (1304-1305). Her prompt establishment of a relationship with the other characters gives her an empathetic quality, and suggests she experiences a similar emotional trauma. Furthermore, unlike Fagles’ translation, Antigonick tarnishes Eurydike’s importance as a character when she says, “it’s her [Eurydike’s] only speech in the play” (Carson).
“The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him”, Daniel 9:9. In the Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne portrays Hester Prynne as a kind, strong, and humble character. Although as Hester sins, this does not define her as a person or take away from her value as a person. Hester is a humble person throughout the entire book because she is always caring nice and honest. As Hester is appointed for adultery and admits to it, she is completely honest and doesn’t lie and straight forward with the townspeople.
How I come to this conclusion is the ways Anna was standing and the vocabulary that Anna is using to articulate the character English. It’s has shown that this character is a person who can articulate her opinions and able to speak her mind and will not stop until someone heard
The apologies are used as “a mutual face-saving device” according to Tannen, and that is just another way to explain language manipulation. Like the usage of indirect language, profuse apologies or thank yous women often use, are used as manipulation to make the other party understand that they are not superior to them. It may be unneeded in most situations as Tannen explains, but it represents how these words manipulate the actions of the women using them, and the thoughts of the people who view them speaking this
