Parallelism is used to add balance to sentences. It assists authors in persuading their audience by creating rhythm and flow throughout a sentence. Jefferson uses it when he repeats the phrase, “He has,” (Jefferson, page) at the beginning of multiple sentences. Be that as it may, while it creates rhythm, it is very redundant. Henry uses parallelism in his famous line, “Give me liberty or give me death.” (Henry, page) Henry uses parallelism perfectly in this sentence because it is smooth and has balance.
Lewis’s impact on society bears no measure. For Lewis, the only dependable critic of a writer’s value is time, and the only reliable measure is the enjoyment that results from reading that writer’s works. By this measure, the fact that Lewis became ten times as popular with the generation after his death proves his incredible talent and significance. What our next generation will make of him is ultimately up to us. Lewis will most likely remain a controversial figure, and many individuals will twist his words.
In the book, ‘The Death Cure’, by James Dashner there are an adequate amount of figures of speech which are pretty interesting.Figures of speech is a good strategy writers intelligently manipulate in order to keep interest and suspense. James Dashner mainly used hyberboleshyperboles, metaphors and personification since it lets the reader close their eyes and imagine them being in the book. Figures of speech helps the reader feel like they are understanding what the characters are experiencing. First off, Dashner used personification to let the reader experience the scene. “Minho ignored him, fighting tooth and nail until the group finally stopped in front of a door’’ (page 39) .
“I hope you’re having a pretty good time here. I know I kind of dragged you away at the point of a gun, but after all you can’t come to the shore with just anybody and you can’t come by yourself, and at this teen-age period in life the proper person is your best pal. Which is what you are.” (Knowles, 40). The whole narrative is said awkwardly, which is odd since it is conveyed to the reader only by text. This is a sign
Therefore, in their eyes, the fact that they did not share the same linguistic and cultural competences of their school teachers was of little consequence. Academia was deemed both irrelevant to their working class future, and emasculating to their conception of masculinity (Newburn, Stanko, 2013). An aggressive style of masculinity was thus an important feature of the lads' collective identity. As Willis (1977, p.34) pointed out, 'Violence and the judgment of violence is the most basic axis of 'the lads' ascendance over the
He mocks the fact that nothing lasts but instead becomes a fad. In this quote it is plain to see that his targeted group is young adults. He shows how just a few years ago this was relevant and the rave but now it has no impact and very insignificant to us. Proving exactly what Sternberg was trying to
He could achieve this because he was good at coinage. According to Oxford dictionary, coinage is the invention of a new word or phrase. Shakespeare particularly was very skilful at borrowing words from Latin and transforming them. He did this by keeping the stem that belongs to one language and the prefix or suffix to the other. Examples of these words are accommodation, fixture, pious, generous, educate and so on.
The millennial generation is often criticized for being the laziest generation, one that never does anything. This generation is often looked down upon as a disappointment, but it has shown that it is more than capable of achieving great accomplishments. Through social media platforms, the young people of today have created movements and have educated many people around the world. This generation has learnt to be politically correct. This generation had learnt to be aware of the struggles people are facing around the world.
Fortunately, words span the known world. After all, without words, expressing ourselves would become much harder. Not surprisingly, words are powerful, and when words are put together, they can have exquisite meanings. After reading, Learning to Read and Write, by Frederick Douglas, I was astounded by his use of words (not to mention how he learned to use them). The grouping of the words was wonderful and powerful.
All of this together creates a valid argument and leads the reader to agree with Boroditsky and her theory of language and its influences. Boroditsky wrote this argument to present to the reader a better understanding about language and culture and the effect that those two elements have on a person’s perception. The reader really walks away from this article with a better understanding and knowing that a person’s language does indeed influence a person’s perception of the world around
