Yet, other countries do not coin “special names to refer to these local speech-ways.” Their second view regarding ‘Spanglish’ is that it is not a hybrid language because just by hearing the term it can be interpreted that it belongs to a hybrid language. The authors of this paper finds that there is no objective justification for the term and that by using this term Latinos in the US are giving people the right to discriminate against them. In the response paper that Otheguy and Stern wrote in 2013, they argued that the term Spanglish does more harm than good. Otheguy and Stern state that there are many Latinos that reject the term and that object to its perceived derogatory tone. Towards the end of the response paper, Otheguy and Stern offer an insight into why the term Spanglish does more harm than good.
First, Spanish speakers shouldn’t be ashamed to speak their language because of what the public might think about them. Although, when there are bilingual people talking in their language in public places we immediately assume they are talking about us. It only takes a matter of seconds for a person to recognize another person’s language. If they are either non-American or American people will notice the difference because the way they are speaking. That said people shouldn’t assume or jump to conclusions about what the non-American is saying because of what they hear when it is not an English language.
These “fighting words” are not protected under the first Amendment. Fighting words shouldn’t be a constitutional issue because people are allowed to speak, even is it will cause a flare in tempers. There is no society in which freedom of expression is absolute (Bangstad). In America, there are six different types of limitations on speech, and fighting words is one of them. The most confusing aspect of the Fighting Words Doctrine is that there is not a strict definition on what
This is not accurate because it is not one product that is causing these health problems such as diabetes and obesity. Getting rid of just soda will not take away health issues. The soda ban is a bad idea because it limits people's opinions. ¨Ban the Ban!¨ the opinion piece by SidneyAnne Stone quotes, ¨When you take away my option to order a soda a certain size, you have now removed my opinions.¨(Stone pg. 288).
1. Latinos as biggest minority in the US According to Juana Bordas “the Latino population in the United States grew by 43 percent in the last decade, accounting for more than half of the population gain” (IX). As a consequence the Latinos represent one of the largest and most diverse groups in the USA (cf. Saenz 352). The word Latino is often mistaken with the word Hispanic.
Whether known as Charlemagne, Charles the Great, Charles I, or even Carolus Magnus, there is no denying the extent of the first Holy Roman Emperor’s power, influence, and legacy on the former Western Roman Empire. Initially disparaged as an illegitimate claimant to power by the Byzantine court, during his reign, he would go on to reform the vast majority of Western Europe; eventually leading them out of an era marked by warfare, and a near abandonment of cultural achievements and emphasis on education. Despite Charlemagne’s illiteracy, he learned to speak both Latin and Greek, in addition to his native Old High German. Accompanying his proficiency for languages, he was an aficionado of rhetoric, religion, academics, culture, and both the
It has been argued that until the foetus is sentient, it has no moral status and has no psychological connection with their potential future; therefore they are owed very little in the way of moral protection. This is highlighted by the Supreme Court’s decision of Roe v. Wade. This case separated personhood from humanity as the judge agreed that a foetus was a member of the Homo sapiens but not a person in a moral sense. It could therefore be argued that a foetus is not a human in a full moral status and hence has no moral status. Indeed, this allows the permissibility of
The following pessimistic thing about creatine does not manage the supplement itself but rather the individual why should attempting take it and that is instructing yourself on it. To start with creatine does not influence your hormones level, I say this in light of the fact that such a variety of individuals let me know that they break out when they take creatine and I let them know that is not genuine on the grounds that one your body produces it normally and two it does nothing to your
