“Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power.” -Patrick Rothfuss. Everyone in uses figurative language in someway, you could be writing a paper, yelling at your sister, or maybe just talking to yourself. But you use it in someway, shape, or form. In the stories, The House of The Scorpion and “Two Kinds” by Nancy Farmer and Amy Tan the authors used figurative language to develop the setting and mood.

The significance of this, implies metaphors are “central to thought and to our knowledge and expectation of reality” (Foss 188). Although others may see metaphors as a difficult expression. Metaphors provide the ability to view a specific content and relate to connect with involvement, a physical connection to view the context with clarity. As so used in Alice Walker’s literary piece, In Search Of Our Mothers’ Gardens. In Walker’s writing, her metaphoric message is expressed as a journey to understand elders cruel unjust past life, searching for a connection for her own
Languages are complex because they are made up of many components. Some components include the culture, meaning, and interpretation. The way people understand language has to do mostly with their culture and their understanding of what is being said. Also, depending upon where someone is raised, the pronunciation of certain words can be different and therefore it influences the understanding. My goal in this paper is to demonstrate that language and culture are intertwined. There wouldn’t be cultures without languages, and there wouldn’t be languages without cultures. To prove this point, I will connect two readings and a tv episode that explain the components of the English language.
Driscoll (2000) model) consists of three stages (What, So what & Now what) completing one cycle help me to improve my caring practice continuously and learning from those experience for better practice in the future. The cycle starts with a description of the situation (“What”), which include analysis of the incident. “So what” evaluate the experience, including the analysis to make sense of the experience, and the final stage “Now what” is a conclusion of what else could I have done better and an action plan to prepare for, if the similar situation arose again.

“It is possible to become discouraged about the injustice we see everywhere. But God did not promise us that the world would be humane and just. He gives us the gift of life and allows us to choose the way we will use our limited time on earth. It is an awesome opportunity”. A quote said by Cesar Chavez, which means that either one sees the bad qualities in life or the good qualities in life, and that the decision is totally up to the human being. Cesar Chavez was a man who had dedicated his life to improving the lifestyles of farm workers by leading marches and boycotts. Similarly, Martin Luther King Jr. was very aware of the rough qualities in life and wanted to encourage people to join him in improving the lifestyles and injustices of colored
What makes a story enjoyable? Is it the plot? Or is it the methods the author uses to connect to the reader? Plot is a big thing, but it is the literary devices that bring the story together. In the three stories, “The Tunnel” by Sarah Ellis, “The Skating Party” by Merna Summers and “The Bicycle” by Jillian Horton all have unique literary devices to make each story more intriguing and to give them the feeling of being part of the story.
Throughout our daily lives, we communicate and interact with other people that we do or do not know. While we are communicating, we are saying and using many types of language like examples, quotes, and metaphors. In this world that filled with so many cultures, each culture has its own beliefs, norms, traditions, understandings, and its own metaphors. The cultural metaphors can consider as a cultural system or use of language that shared within people with the same culture and values. Moreover, the use of a certain metaphor in a culture can be not understandable and doesn’t make sense for another culture due to the difference in values and beliefs. The metaphorical meanings in different cultures motivate and state
“Figurative language can give a shape to the difficult and the painful. It can make visible and ‘felt’ that which is invisible and ‘unfeelable.’” -Mary Oliver. Mary Oliver says that figurative language can say something difficult or painful, and it is also something that is felt. In the stories “Here’s Herbie” by Mike Feder and The Pigman by Paul Zindel, the author uses figurative language to develop the reader’s point of view of how the character looks and how the characters are like.
The impact of this figurative language in Abuelito Who is to figure out the meaning of the words. The meaning of figurative language is language that uses words or expressions with a meaning. There are similes that we read in the story that compare one thing with another of a different kind.

How has artwork transformed itself with the use of metaphors? With many different artwork pieces we have seen through museums or within our textbooks, most would include an underlying meaning.

Language is a system of communication consisting of sounds, words and grammar, or the system of communication used by the people of a particular country or profession. Even animals communicate. Birds use sound and movement to transfer information. Likewise human beings use sound and movement like speech and gesture to communicate. Language is the fundamental factor leading and affecting communication. Language is communication and vice versa. It can also helps with everyday tasks such as, explaining issues and procedures exchanging ideas or learning ideas. Being knowledgeable about language is a key for successful communication in relationships and in the workplace. I would say that without language, we would not be able to communicate.
Communication is sharing process which involves expressing ideas, thoughts, feelings or sending the right message that is also being correctly received and understand by the other person/s who is receiving it on the other end.
Language is an important part of our life. Language and communication cannot separate. People use the language as a means of communication to express their ideas and feelings. They communicate either with each other using language in every social interaction; communicate with others directly or indirectly in the spoken and written form. Therefore, language is an important thing of communication in social life. In the social life, language and society are two things that support each other. It is impossible if there is society without language and there is language without society, because language is a device to communicate one to another (Adam J.H, 1982; 3). There is the study to organize between language and the society that is called sociolinguistics.
