According to Tugend's source Professor Earl Miller we can do a couple of things at the same time if they are routine, but when they demand more cognitive process it hinders our brain's ability to keep up. (Miller in Tugend, NY Times) In Tugend's article she talks about how David E. Meyer concluded in one of his 2001 studies that it took the participants a great deal of time to shift between more difficult tasks. "Although the time it takes for our brains to switch tasks may be only a few seconds or less, it adds up. If we’re talking about doing two jobs that can require real concentration, like text-messaging and driving, it can be fatal." (Tugend, NY Times) Doing anything other than paying full attention to the road ahead while driving can be fatal, not only to you but to the other individuals around you.
Because of the limited capacity of the STM, words from the middle of the list are thought to be lost completely or unavailable for recall. Case Study of K.F. - Shallice & Warrington (1970) I think that this study proves that the different parts of the multi-store model can be damaged separately because K.F's LTM was unaffected by the motorbike accident while his STM was severely damaged. Case Study of H.M. - Milner et al (1978) This study also supports the theory that the multi-store model can be affected as individual parts because while H.M's STM and LTM both worked almost normally, he lost the ability to transfer the information from the STM to the LTM, however he could recall information from the LTM to the
He gave participants two lists with similar or dissimilar acoustic and semantic words. He found that the PS had difficulty in recalling the acoustically similar words in STM, but not in LTM. This is the total opposite to the semantic lists, that where easily remembered in the STM test. In general, STM appears to story all information acoustically. However, some tests have shown that visual codes are also stored in STM.
Last year, sales rose by 18 per cent. This year, they have gone up by 22 per cent. There are many factors in favour of opening a new branch in Bellport. Firstly, it is easier to recruit staff in Bellport because the town is much larger than Causton. Also, the employment rate in Bellport is 10 per cent whereas it is only 3 per cent in Causton.
S varies his volume, pace and pitch at key moments in his speech. For example, line 66 “>But how could I< know\” is spoken quickly as it is more of an aside than a main statement. Line 25 “In <every (.) possible (.) way/>” is spoken quietly to enhance the effect and signal the end of the sentence.
Not ask the right questions? How did you overcome these challenges? Be sure to use the vocabulary of the writer!! Challenges I faced while writing this paper primarily consisted of procrastination. The truth is, I knew that I was going to use an old paper, but procrastinated on revision.
Critically analyzing these text gave me a better grasp of some of the more conceptual ideas about language and writing. Lederer’s “The Case for Short Words” helped me understand that often long, complex words are not always preferable. Whenever I was revising my papers I always looked for words that were unnecessarily so. Some of the essays we read didn’t directly tie into my writing but helped me understand how certain choices influenced my consumption of the written word. Carr’s “Is Google Making Us Stoopid?” and Naughton’s “The Internet: Is it Changing the Way We Think?” showed the impact technology has had on us related to reading and critical thinking.

Figurative Language versus Literal Language Domonic Lastoria Dr. John Becker Critical Thinking 4/28/2013 Figurative Language versus Literal Language In this assignment, I will be going over the misuse of figurative language. The misuse of figurative language a lot of times makes it rather difficult for others to think productively about certain topics and issues. Throughout this assignment, I will provide many different types of figurative language and describe how they are used and examples of how they could lead to misunderstanding. The first is Idioms. “An Idiom is a word or phrase that is not taken literally” (LoveToKnow Corp, 2013).
David Crystal indicates, “This is a form of language play... [the desire to] outdo what has been done before.” This type of minor changes of words are a prime example of the effects of text messaging media on the English language. Media with character restrictions have a large impact on the environment of the English language. They have changed the meaning of simple acronyms such as LOL, which the ordinary population employs in day-to-day communication without lending a thought as to where the phrase comes from or what its original meaning is. The effects of text messaging and other media with character restrictions on the English language illustrate change in many areas of verbal communication and literature, and even contribute towards a transformation in a general public attitude. 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.
