Word choice will also remind authors to check their vocabulary and how they worded their sentences. Word choice will help the author sound more professional.

Now it is so much easier and quicker to reach out to those who live far from us. I can call my family whenever I want to and wherever I want to. The Internet also uses Wifi and now people could use it so much quicker than what it used to be. Wifi had a big impact on us winning World War 2. Thanks to Hedy Lamar and the frequency hopper we aren 't under Hitler 's rule.
One of the most significant advances in technology in recent times has been the invention of the cell phone. Cell phones have become a massive part of the world that people live in today. The ability to communicate with anybody in any part of the world whenever possible has been a substantial improvement to the way individuals live. Technology has allowed people to connect in more ways than ever before, but it is currently disconnecting people from the world right in front of them. Paul Goldberger’s essay “Disconnected Urbanism” incorporates multiple persuasive methods to be successful in effectively convincing its audience that cell phones have taken people away from the places around them.
Rhetoric helps us accept and introduce new scientific discoveries which are then accepted or denied in our culture and our communities. The way we try to persuade and convenience new discoveries is used in Rhetoric to try to gain a better understandment in new discoveries. We might be ambiguous with scientific knowledge because we are too comfortable and “secure” with our technologies. We feel that we could look up anything on our phones, but without them we are very vulnerable. Like with the exercise we did in class, we tried to guess but just to be sure some of us looked for the answers on Google.Another possible explanation is that there are many sources that say different things that we don 't know who to believe.
Fish's answers in both cases, is no. He declares that "the premise of secular humanism (or of just old-fashioned humanism) is that the examples of action and thought portrayed in the enduring works of literature, philosophy and history can create in readers the desire to emulate them." But Fish sees no practical benefit in delving into great works of literature and impressive philisophical treatises. He supports this contention by saying that "if it were true that arts and humanities are beneficial, then the most generous, patient, good-hearted and honest people on earth would be the members of literature and philosophy departments, who spend every waking hour with great books and great thoughts. .
Being logical is important to Baron as he professed his purpose that not everyone is capable of writing. Historical figures such as Martin Luther reasoned that “you just read one good book, which you can read over and over-the gift that keeps on giving-not a lot of bad books that will just fill your head with error just to confuse you”(Baron 709). If a book is exceptional, it should make its readers read it over and over again. This is a topic that is endangered when too many books or materials exist. The issue of unimportant logic comes into play when too much is created.
The writing style Roth likes to use involves lots of positivity, possibly even too much. Some critics claim that the topics could even be described as “common sense”. Critic Bashira said, “If you take to reading self-development books, a lot of his concepts--you'll realize--are hardly new.” Bashira does touch and expose Roth’s writing in a positive matter however, giving Roth the true credibility he deserves as a creative author. Bernard Roth’s story The Achievement Habit, included chapter two, “Reasons Are Bullshit”, which was a great chapter to give affection and impact on all the rhetorical appeals he ended up covering. The ways Roth expanded on the topics showed how creative and intelligent the Stanford professor truly is.
But what is even more staggering is that this scattered narrator may be what truly brings the message of the book to life. Reliability of a narrator tends to fixate on the information that the narrator is exposed to and what they divulge to the readers. In the case of Slaughterhouse Five, the dependability of the narrator is questionable seeing as the soundness of their mind is an iffy debate. This argument is unexpected seeing as the narrator is most often expected to carry all knowledge of their world, but in this novel the information they indulge the readers with is scattered and seemingly a hallucination at times. It all started with one of the first lines of the fictional portion of the book: “Billy Pilgrim has come unstuck in time” (23).

One definition of ‘trust’ as defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary (2004) is “dependence on something future or contingent.” The lack of trust on Lecioni’s (2007) fictional team leads to false pretenses, lack of follow-through, and absence of conflict. The author explicitly describes what power foundation of trust holds. For a team to be effective, the members need to rely on one another and reliance implies a level of liability and risk. Much like a circle, accountability causes follow-through and conflict when differing opinions arise, and honest conflict in a safe environment creates more trust. In the beginning of the novel, the executive staff is much like a group of individuals working for their own best interest deprived of a group vision or end goal.
