Smolla writes about the First Amendment in his essay, "Speech Overview". He discusses what freedom of speech is, why Americans hold the First Amendment in such high regard, and how it can be conflicting to many American's "social instincts". The main idea that Smolla is arguing is that Americans embrace freedom of speech and individuality, even though it may cause conflict. He recognizes that some limitations must exist, but the freedom to express our thoughts is the American way.
Dr. Claud Anderson is an incredible speaker that understands the difficulties African Americans face in today’s society. He brought up several relevant points that every black should understand in order to fix the problems we face. First, we have to know what the problem is to be able to improve the situation. Many civil rights activist like, Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King Jr., have tricked our minds into thinking that civil rights is the root to all of the struggles African Americans face. In reality, the problem is blacks are in the same position as they were after the civil war. In 1866 blacks were free from slavery without any resources, but had to compete with whites in every industry. How could that be possible if blacks were behind 400 years? In order to be free, slaves had to receive 40 acres of land, a mule, and $100, but only a few had received those resources, which made the majority of blacks still slaves Blacks were thrown into a real life monopoly game and were expected to compete without money. Before starting a monopoly game, everyone should get the same amount of money, but blacks did not get their fair share. This
This source was written in 1542, and this speech was given to the people of the country of Spain. The Martolome De Las Casas, the lord Prince of Spains don Felipe gave this speech to the people. Giving this speech, the Prince shows how horrid the idea of the Christians killing and destroying the Indies. The Christians represent the English and the Indies are the Indians. The Christians invaded North America and stole the Indians’ gold, food, and killed a multitude of them: “The cause for which the Christians have slain and destroyed so many and such infinite numbers of souls, has been simply to get, as their ultimate end, the Indians’ gold of them, and to stuff themselves with riches in a very few days, and to raise themselves to high estates... owing to the insatiable greed and ambition that they have had, which has been greater than any the world has ever seen before” (2 Bartolome De Las Casas).
A language sample analysis (LSA) is a tool that generates the coding and transcriptions of a language sample to document the language used every day in various speaking situations (Miller, Andriacchi, & Nockerts, 2016). Language samples are typically 50-100 words in length and are voice-recorded and then transcribed by the clinician. Language samples are done using spontaneous speech, such as typical conversation, or narrative contexts, such as story or event recalls (Miller, Andriacchi, & Nockerts, 2016). The speech-language pathologist (SLP) will take the recording and write out, in the exact words of the child and clinician, every utterance (Bowen, 2011). The SLP will then "code" the sample. Coding the sample consist of marking inflection
On the 27th of October in 1964, Ronald Reagan gave a speech called “A Time for Choosing” on behalf of Barry Goldwater. His speech was so popular that it is also known as “The Speech”. Afterwards, Ronald Reagan ,also known as The Great Communicator, was thought of by many people as a great political speaker. This speech was given to endorse the Goldwater campaign, even though Goldwater lost the election. The Speech launched Reagan’s political career into action and he later went on to be the Californian governor and President of the United States. Reagan used passion, logic, and his great reputation to build up his and Goldwater’s careers.
With anti-communism being the dominant political issue during the Cold War, hysteria and paranoia spread throughout the minds of Americans. The “Enemies From Within Speech” delivered at Wheeling, West Virginia in 1950 by Senator Joseph McCarthy focused on worsening that national fear. Senator McCarthy used ethos, metaphor, and hyperbole to create the notion of disloyalty within the federal government.
The various ideologies of love mentioned by speakers in Plato’s Symposium portrayed the social and cultural aspect of ancient Greece. In the text, there were series of speeches given by Phaedrus, Pausanias, Eryximachus, Aristophanes, Socrates, and Agathon about the idea of love, specifically the effect and nature of Eros. Within the speakers, Agathon’s speech was exceptional in that his speech shifted the focus of the audience from effect of Eros on people, to the nature and gifts from the Eros. Despite Agathon’s exceptional remarks about Eros, Socrates challenged Agathon’s characterization of Eros through utilization of Socratic Method.
Many civil rights leaders have spoken out about their controversial views of how to address injustices. For instance, during the Civil Right Movement, Kathie Amatniek and Harvey Milk both spoke to voice that their societies that are directing injustices towards gays and women. Using pathos and metaphors, Amatniek wants America to rid of traditional views of gender. Meanwhile, Harvey Milk uses using pathos, diction and humor to connect with his mainly homophobic audience to abolish the negative stereotypes of gays. In both Amatnieks Funeral Oration for the Burial of Traditional Womanhood and Milks The Hope Speech similar rhetorical appeals and stylistic devices are used to say what the audience, as an individual, should change social injustices.
The tongue for every language is that inside the mouth, speaking words, meanings, and sentences. Both articles, being, “How to Tame a Wild Tongue” and “The Mother Tongue”, touch on this subject. We see how these articles describe how language varies around the world yet both articles are different in describing this; both taking a deeper approach. Language has become a powerful tool used around the world and peoples interpretation of these various languages can shape that of who we are/how we view the people speaking them, shown throughout both articles. We see a perfect description of language in the first article, being that of, “A language which they can connect their identity to, one capable of communicating the realities and values true
Chapter nine of David and Goliath talks about strength, how the difficult situations that we face in life, provide us with courage, tenacity, but above all, leave the feeling of being invincible, there is no fear. Gladwell tells the story of the town of Le Chambon, this town offered asylum to Jews who were persecuted by the Nazis during the Second World War. The Huguenots challenge the impositions of the Nazis, help the Jews and emerge victorious. Gladwell argument is that the Nazis, under no circumstances could defeat the resources that the Huguenots had.
King was the leader of the civil rights movement in the United States during the 1950 and 1960. His nonviolent approach to social reform and political activism, characterized by mass marches and large gatherings designed to demonstrate both the widespread acceptance of the tenets of civil rights and the barbarism of those who opposed them, contrasted with the confrontational methods espoused by Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam. King's Letter from Birmingham City Jail (1963) and the 1963 speech in which he declared "I Have a Dream" are considered the written landmarks of the movement. Today they are counted among history's great statements of human right.
Crucial Conversations also address uncomfortable conversations that can occur between an administrator and teachers, or other community stakeholders. These types of conversations encourage people to speak up and let their opinions be heard. An administrator’s goal with Crucial Conversations is to engage in dialogue with fellow school or district employees. Richard Pound, who wrote the article, “Breaking the Culture of Silence and Crucial Conversations,” says that the emphasis of dialogue results in good and informed decision-making. It also prevents employees from feeling “de-motivated, disengaged, and disinterested” (Pound 2). Too many people avoid engaging in the conversation process until their emotions, which have been bottled up because
There are roughly 6500 spoken language in the world today. People mostly spend their life talking and destining and advanced society reading and writing. The use of language is an intrinsic part of being human. It is clear that language and abstract thought are very close to each other but many people think that these two characteristic distinguish human being from animals.
As little kids, we would draw scribbles with pen and paper, and around the age five or six, we start to learn how to read and write letters. As a child, I never thought about the importance of writing. It never crossed my mind that I was learning something that will greatly affect me in the future. The idea of being able to jot down some of my thoughts on a piece of paper amazed me. A year later, I started writing sentences, which eventually turned into paragraphs, and finally, around fifth grade, I was able to write an essay. The
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.
