Chow breaks the following 3 rules: never use a long word when a short one will do, never use a simile, metaphor, or other figure of speech which you are seeing in print, and never use a foreign phrase, a scientific or jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.

This rule is also broken when she uses the word gangrenous to describe flesh, instead of using a word that could create more imagery for the reader such as rotten or decomposed flesh, which is also easier to understand.

That’s how it was so easy for him to escape he thought about it on his own he believes that every can think on their own an no one thinks for another this is what allows equality to excel in life. 2. Ayn Rand contrasts about equality 7-2521 and the collective government by saying “they or we”

From the ancient Olympic Truce to the exclusion of Apartheid South Africa from international competition, sport has taken an indispensable part in international affairs and diplomacy in the long course of history.

A group in 19th century America called the Shakers did not believe in sexual relationships between people. They would meet to worship and perform elaborate dances that involved near-violent shaking.

Therefore, they were unable to participate in
