Fredic s duality is seen in how he is talking about staying happy in lofe with Catherine and then has a pessimistic view on the future and on the war anding. Hemmingways use of short sentences(syntax) takes out the emotion of the conversation. Hemmingway also leases out who is saying what for the majorit of Catherines and Frederis converstion. By doning this it is almost like the characters mesh and it becomes hard to determine who is saying what. The
Different perspectives of ideas are presented in the two texts in order to accomplish their purpose. Text 1 A is presented as an autobiography, “I lived in Master Hugh’s family about seven years” (text 1 A Line 1). The use of the words “I” 1st person singular, “mine”, “my” and “me” creates a strong trusting connection towards the audience, since it is personal. However it can also have disadvantages, since it is bias it can cause unreliability, which is unlikely because the effect of using a pronoun (I) in this text is that it captures the reader’s attention and lets one be able to imagine it, due to the tension that is created. In this extract Frederick Douglass structures his story by discussing his process of learning “The first step had been taken”.
Weir highlights the potential for communities to compromise different values, through his representation of the peaceful Amish community, set against the declining American society. The film commences with a panoramic view of long, lush grass with the Amish emerging from it soon after, accompanied by natural and ambient lighting. This establishes the Amish effectively as peaceful people, harmonious with nature. However, this view of the Amish is soon juxtaposed in the next scene with the English. Weir effectively uses a long shot of a train station with everyone independently travelling along with harsh and artificial lighting.

It provides feedback from the facial expressions of those in the audience. I feel that often times I make the correct facial expressions during a speech, however, like most people I would stay that posture seems to be my downfall with body movements. I know that of the few speeches I have had to deliver and very few that sometimes I would notice myself standing straight almost stiff. I know that this is probably due to fear, however, there are times during a speech which you would want a more relaxed body posture. I do make appropriate use of gestures that relate to my speech and would help deepen the understanding.
Task: Consider the features in the following table of spoken and written language. Create a new table for text message language, selecting features from both sides of the table. Spoken Language | Written Language | uses pitch, volume and pace to aid communication | is ephemeral (it disappears as soon as it is said) | uses punctuation and sentence structure to aid communication | is a permanent form of communication (it is written and exists in a physical form). | is often informal | is often spontaneous | is often formal | is often planned | may not be structured in sentences | is often viewed as more unique to an individual – style is more personal | is usually structured in sentences | is often viewed as more standardised, less personal or unique | is often interactional (conversations between speakers) | is often viewed as having lower status | is often transactional(conveying information to readers). | is often viewed as having higher status | Are there more features from spoken or written language in your new table?
“If you haven’t struck oil in your first three minutes, stop boring!” George Jessel Public speaking is certainly an art. Not only does it require some skills but it also implies genuine talent. Nevertheless, there some maneuvers that can help you to navigate through pitfalls of the public speaking. Knowing how to introduce yourself and how to begin your speech is extremely important for it is your jumping-off point to command the attention of the audience. Should you fail to engage them from the very beginning, your speech is doomed to be a burden for everyone in the hall.
• Peterson – Peterson study supports the theory because it shows that if rehearsal is prevented, the information is removed from the short-term memory in seconds. Which shows long-term and short-term memory is separate. Arguments against: • There is evidence, for ample from the case of FK, to suggest that material in short-term memory is analysed for meaning, and not just for sound. This suggests that the Atkinson & Shiffrin (1968) view of short-term memory is wrong. • There is evidence from the cases of Jon, HM and FK, to suggest that there are several separate store of long-term memory, for example for facts, events and skills.
Lewis then goes on to explain the protagonist’s friend (A guess however not 100% proved due to the limited detailed text provided), Ransom, furthering the development of the setting. It should be highlighted that his choice of diction in regards to the narrators friends name, Ransom, leaves one with a bucketful of interpretations. The name could symbolise who this person may be, someone in which the narrator must return a favour too and may bear consequences if such is not completed. It could be a friend’s nickname or last name from a childhood or college. The list of possibilities is endless, yet with this specific extract, and the emphasised theme or madness, it leave one to think that this “friend” may in fact not be a friend.
Minnie Schwarzenegger HOW DOES FRAYN CONVEY TENSION AND FEAR ON P130 Frayn uses a number of language techniques and descriptive methods that engage the reader, enhancing the effect of every technique and sense, as well as purposely drawing attention to detail and his particular choice of words. Through this, Frayn is able to create a tense atmosphere and actively engage the reader, conveying the underlying theme of fear and tension in this passage. The first of Frayn’s language techniques is his use of the narrative. Stephen’s narrative of the “Barns” is entirely detached from Keith, with no mention of him until the very end. This prevents distraction from his stream of consciousness like narrative, the focal point shifts from what he is describing – to how he describes it; in the present tense, as if his memory were taking him back to his childhood, this helps to involve the reader, which automatically heightens each idea and motion.
