Chiang reinforces this idea when Louise is recalling her and a friend’s experiences, “My internal voice normally spoke in English but that wasn’t a requirement. […] I was thinking and even dreaming in Russian […] I had a friend born of Deaf parents; he grew up using American Sign Language, and he told me that he often thought in ASL instead of English” (Chiang 127). Chiang included this section of text in order to hint to the audience that the language a person knows can influence the way that an individual can think. This framing of the effects of learning a language taking strongly from the early 20th-century idea in linguistics called the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis. The Sapir-Whorf hypothesis is the idea that “there’s a link between the shape of language and what people actually talk about” (Panko).
Bartleby, in his story "The Scrivener" and Stephen Crane, in his book "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky Summary" aim at ensuring that they capture the attention of their audience based on their literary works. The two authors have structured their stories in such a way that their beginnings are flat but with time get entertaining. On the flip side, contrast exists on some of the themes that are applied to both stories. In this paper, an assessment of the similarities and contrasts that exists between the two stories will be highlighted. Theme: one of the primary goals of literary works is to ensure that the audience 's attention is captured and that it is able to derive suitable information by reading the stories.
"To think or speak poetically is to adopt a distorted stance toward the ordinary world..." and to do so is with the use of figurative language (Gibbs 1). Figurative language is the point at which you utilize a word or expression that does not make use of its literal meaning. Authors who utilize figurative language, use this to make their work more fascinating or more emotional than the exact language which essentially states simple facts. Authors frequently use figurative language to make unfamiliar things, settings and circumstances more relatable for the reader. Poems, specifically, depend intensely on figurative language.
Thus, deviation might concern a particular part of sentence which depends on the communication context between the writer and the readers. Therefore, the discourse might be conventional or unconventional in various senses. Thus, the writer utilized the different elements of figures of speech such as metaphor, irony, simile and alliteration. In this way, the writer intends to achieve a lot of aesthetic effects within his literary works. Thus, he is able to support a lot of social and cultural relations and misleading the readers to mysterious directions without lying to them.
The content is just one of the elements that determine the shape or form and are to be evaluated from this perspective.Theway of using language in the formalist point of view is different from using language by other approaches.The artistthat has a common language is trying not to be obsessed with conceptual limitations. The views of formalists are: 1) Departure or deviation from the norm: Formalists believed that standard literary languagedeviates from literary arts. Less text can be found in each paragraph or even a sentencethat somehow escape from the criteria. 2.Exotic and Defamiliarization: An important achievement in the theory of Defamiliarization is pure literature. Art puts obstacles in the way of reader to oblige him to think about the text and art.
Even though he only wrote “Identity” this poem shows so many from just reading this. When reading this poem automatically could tell how much feeling was behind this, not knowing what he has gone through. He used a situation that was all around and such a huge issue that is important to the society today. Also using an issue and putting it into a totally different story, but with the same meaning. For example, in his poem, it state “I 'd rather smell of musty, green stench than of sweet, fragrant lilac.
IT’s imperfect or even incorrect in some places but mostly, it’s just a simplistic understanding of how English works. It’s still clear enough to understand if more people took the time to and it’s the first language she learned from her mother. She looked back at her own work and saw the overly worded and strict grammar, a way she only talked around certain people but never her mother. She realized that this English isn’t bad either, but neither is her mother tongue. While slightly wrong, it’s how she learned English and gained her love of the language to the point that she knew she wanted to write professionally.
Some readers might view that minor characters as irrelevant in the story or have a minimal part that will affect the story and the main character. The whole plot is focused on the main character only. However they do play a big part towards the main character in the story. Main characters do not only develop independently and throughout events and conflicts of a plot of a story. Authors use the literary techniques of minor characters to help develop the main character’s actions and how they are portrayed at the beginning and at the end of the story.
Both Edgar Allan Poe and John Green are able to do this remarkably. As a way to connect the reader with the story, both authors provide different types of conflict in their stories, using them like keys, opening certain locks specific to a character’s personality that can only be shown by the specific conflicts. PvS can show a character’s more inside feelings about themselves, rather than their attitude and behaviors towards others. Another aspect Poe and Green have in common, is their use of deeper meaning behind characters. This not only paints a clear picture in the reader’s head, but can also help the reader be more sympathetic with the character, and use that kind of development, question, and philosophy in their own writing, or even their own life.
Chastain (1988) claimed " The audio-lingual method had the major influence on language teaching and learning from the 1950s into the 1970s" which was based on "mimicry-memorization" (p.87). Audio-lingual method was established based on rote learning. Structuralists also believed that languages are made from different components what later called as "formalist models" of languages (Mitchell, Myles & Marsden, 2013). One of the fundamental issues in ALM was that any error should be prevented and repressed during learning because it would be fossilized and form a bad habit. Freeman and Anderson (2011) stated that "student's errors should be prevented , through the teacher's cognizance of the area that learner may have problem, and limitation about the material which they are
