I believe that both triangles, but more specifically the rhetorical triangle, effectively illustrate “the balance of all three appeals that a writer should use for an effective argument” (“Reading: Rhetorical Triangle). From the diagrams, it seems that each individual rhetoric and communication component remains “as important as the others and too much of one is likely to produce an argument that readers with either find unconvincing or that will cause them to stop reading” (“Reading: Rhetorical Triangle). With the purpose of technical communication centered upon simplifying complex information, the use of both triangles in this form of communication seems more than necessary. For example, when creating any form of technical writing having an awareness of your “reason for the communication” and your identity as a “the creator of the communication” as well as to whom your writing is directed towards aids in communicating information in a more understandable manner for audience (“Reading: Communication Triangle). In addition, carefully finding a balance between all three
Metaphors are used as strategic tools of persuasion, which influences the uncritical readers understanding of reality. CDA as an analytical tool has a very broad spectre, though the tools used for this study are adapted from Fowlers book Language in the News (1991). Fowler (1991) recommends using appropriate linguistic tools to analyse, and referring to relevant historical and social context, can bring ideology, normally hidden through habitualisation of discourse, to the surface for analysis (p. 89). As mentioned CDA is a broad spectre of tools that can be used to analyse though the essential ones for this paper are brought forward
Framing is the use of differing words or phrases to describe a certain issue that needs to be solved. Ferguson claims that “Issue defining frames” (15) are powerful and provides reasoning, that the the way in which a frame is used points out certain problems. Such linguistic examples include; “Medicare Reform”, Social Security Reform” and “Lobbying Reform” (15). By detailing the linguistic basis of framing, it provides support to the main claim in that it can narrow the issues at hand, in effect limiting solutions. In developing their main claim, they are able to provide hypothetical situations that can be interpreted as evidence such as the “lobbyist problem” (16).
Multivariate Regression Analysis 1. Explain the reasoning behind your choice of variables We are interested in explaining why some countries are more democratic than others. Our proposed explanation is that an economically developed society allows people to have a certain level of education and economic stability, which gives them space to turn to other important freedoms in life such as democratic rights. We also think a society that has a low level of cultural diversity (CD) tends to be more democratic since people find it easier to trust one another and therefore are more willing to delegate negotiated power to the authority of the government. Thus, our hypothesis is: in a comparison
President Roosevelt approached the economic disaster at hand much differently from that of Hoover. Unlike Hoover, Roosevelt thought that it was the government’s job to protect and provide for the people during this time. To combat this immense issue occurring, FDR proposed what was known as the “New Deal”. This consisted of the proposition of many new agencies to provide relief, recovery, and reform. Historians called this the “3 R’s”.
Even though the essay has the three supporting points of the topic, those three points are not stated in one or two sentences. So there is a clearly stated thesis in the introductory paragraph, but I think it needs to be written together. 2. Yes, all the supporting paragraphs back up the thesis, so it helps understand what the author is trying to appeal on this essay. Also, the supporting point are agreeable by stating proper examples and reasons.
I have trouble identifying what is detrimental to me. Sometimes it can be my judgement about myself or people in my life. My thoughts can waste my time, since I will think of ways to fix something I did until I am content. My thoughts can also put things off. Another factor can be people.
In 1993, Scott Russell Sanders responds to an essay written by Salman Rushdie, to counteract the idea of “people who transplant themselves in ideas rather than places.” Sanders provides the American public with acknowledgements of counter-arguments, historical references, and patriotic appeals to convey his message that “movement is inherently good” isn’t as it seems from Rushdie’s point of view. Sanders respects Rushdie’s views on migration and uses them to strengthen his argument through countering Rushdie’s views. Sanders cites Rushdie’s claim that “migrants must, of necessity, make a new imaginative relationship with the world, because of the loss of familiar habitats” (47-50). Sanders acknowledges Rushdie’s view on migrants opening up to new ideas due to them leaving their homelands. Sanders counters the argument by stating that “migrants often pack up their visions and values with the rest of their baggage and carry them along” (50-52).
Immigration Argumentative works are written to persuade the audience that the writer’s idea is valid, or more valid than someone else’s. Ethos, pathos, and logos are three types of persuasion that are used to persuade the reader to feel a certain way on array of topics from minor affairs to contentious matters. Immigration, for example, has become a controversial topic that many have strong feels about on both sides of the argument. “My Life in the Shadows” by Reyna Wences debates for support of immigration reforms, while “Unskilled Workers Lose Out to Immigrants” by Steven A. Camarota argues that immigration should be restricted. Based her use of ethos, pathos, and logos, Wences does a better job in convincing her readers that immigration reforms should be backed.
The parties view each other as adversaries, and can withhold information that may hinder the negotiation. One of the major downsize of power based negotiations is that the parties may lose sight of the real issue. Personal Application As a
Cognitive biases are tendencies to think in certain ways that can lead to systematic deviations from a standard of rationality or good judgment. This bias occurs when people are processing and interpreting information in the world around them and attempting to simplify it would skew the processing while making decisions. Not all biases are bad, however they can lead to errors in situations such as social pressures, emotions, or individual motives that would limit the human thinking. Perceptual bias is a tendency to perceive or notice some aspects of an available image or piece of data while ignoring others. Perceiving expectations while focusing attention on a particular set is remaining selective and can be distinguished by emotional connotation,
