Avalon’s attitude to the bullying and cyber-bullying was not very delightful nor helpful. One example is when Avalon received a text saying “FILTHY SLAG WATCH OUT” also, another quote word for word is “The words screamed at me from the screen. The sight of them hurt my ears. It was all I could hear.” Avalon had been taken by surprise with this text
Both Auden and Watson effectively form representations and perspectives through the implementation of techniques within their texts. Auden actively uses poetic techniques to display his own negative perspective regarding the power of dictators in "Epitaph of a Tyrant". Auden immediately creates an ambiguous environment as the first line states how dictators are after "perfection, of a kind". The slight pause after perfection satirises its positive connotation casting doubt upon the reader questioning what type of perfection that the dictators wanted. In addition, Auden further demonstrates his negative perspective through the comment on the amount of knowledge the dictators know; "[Dictators] knew human folly like the back of [their] hand".
Summary: 2b or Not 2b Author: David Crystal The author of this article, David Crystal, effectively adopts the rationale about the evils of texting expressed by authors, John Humphrys and John Sutherland. The author advances the argument of the evils of texting by includes John Humphry’s quote, which describes texting as an act of vandalism and savagery; a massacre of the language. And thus; he argues, the practice should be stopped. John Sutherland equally decries texting as the decomposition of the written language and admonishes in his summation that texting is a tool used by illiterates. Mr.
A reader with even slight knowledge of the Holocaust or of Nazi Germany, would understand that sciences practiced during the Holocaust on prisoners was inhumane and as a whole un-scientific. The fact that some of the same procedures used in a time of moral darkness, were being used in America, is unnerving. The idea that Nazis were eugenically sterilizing thousands of people for the same reasons as Americans should unsettle the reader, making them uncomfortable to condone this behavior. The text “Carrie Buck’s Daughter” by Stephen Jay Gould is a successful persuasive text because Gould uses allusions, intellectual language, comparisons, sarcasm and statistics to provoke the reader’s thoughts and make them want to agree with
The media connected Malcolm X with a negative image of power by using terms such as demagogue, evil, followers, fiery, icon, rival and split. These terms helped to shape the negative image of Malcolm X. Most of the terms can be seen from the Newsweek article. Compared with the other two reports, Newsweek showed biasness when describing Malcolm X. Malcolm is called a "demagogue" in the Newsweek article. This title of power could be viewed as fearful power.
In all of these points of views, the same idea persists, that texting is destroying the English language. He states how John Humphrys compares texters to what Genghis Khan did. He accuses them of “raping the English language. Other sources that Crystal provides, go on to say “it masks dyslexia, poor spelling, and mental laziness.” (pg.335) With the shorthanded writing and abbreviations that are caused by texting; it makes sense that it masks problems people may have, like dyslexia. Overall they believe that texting is a burden to the English language and that it hurts literacy.
This upsets me as the reader and it clearly upsets the author, with her attitude clearly saying that if it has come to this, something needs to be done. But not everyone feels this way; some people believe “the word is being overused, expanding, accordion like, to encompass both appalling violence or harassment and a few mean words” (Munk, page 1). But how can a word be overused when people are dying? When kids are so sick of being bullied they kill
Moreover, the war is so chaotic that it infects the basic abilities, not the least of which is verbal, of humanity itself. By showing how the First World War deleteriously affects the syntax of language, Remarque is able to demonstrate how the war irreparably alters the order of the world
Linguistic Terrorism is the partisan misuse of language in an effort to support an immediate political objective or viewpoint. Linguistic Terrorism is the use of force or threats to pressure those of other nationalities to speak a common language. I look at linguistic terrorism as a way of depriving someone of their language, because if you talk down on someone for speaking their language that’s just like you saying you are racist. Although I do feel that if you are going to come to America to live and work you should be required to learn at least the basics of our English language. We should ask ourselves these questions “Have people of your heritage ever been put down or threatened because of the language you speak, or is it that people
Certain elements, such as acronyms, initialisms, incomplete sentence structure, or the omission of vowels, included in abbreviated messaging technologies (sometimes referred to as “textese”), have contributed to the English language, reflected in the literature and writing skills of the people who use these media. As a response to the skepticism as to whether text messaging is more detrimental or beneficial to the English language, one reviewer comments “f u cn rd ths thn wats th prblm?” (Crystal
