The brim of this funnel is structured by words and phrases such as “NOT GUILTY” and concepts of race being the leading factor in his acquittal. Burke says in A Grammar of Motives (1969), that “what we want is… terms that clearly reveal the strategic spots at which ambiguities necessarily arise” (xviii). With this in mind, the text which is being analyzed reveals something interesting. The author brings up the public’s perceptions and ideals about the Simpson verdict through language and inferences, and directs them towards astonishment because beforehand, the verdict seemed to be a simple conclusion of “guilty.” In this way of reading this particular text, it can be seen as a simply biased text which uses the symbol of language as an “action.” This action is a human motive which gives substance to the writer’s thought that Simpson was obviously guilty. After the verdict was revealed, the author of this text attempted to rationalize the decision and demonize not only Simpson, but the jury as well.
The nature of power may be explained as the possession of domineering influence. Such influence is brought upon by the exploitation of certain factors which as a result espouse fear or question in the minds of those being exposed to power. The beholder experiences, change in mind set, and values. Through the study of my chosen texts, the nature of power will be deconstructed to divulge the legitimacy in which the fickle nature of power results in the fact which, humanity rejects the pinnacles of our ethical values for other forms of power. It is the allusive factors between power and rationality which dramatically affects the stability of decisiveness.
As Terry continues with his supper, he is asked by his uncle what he’s been up to. They argue back and forth about his uncle going up to the attic to check out what he’s been doing up there. His uncle says he better not have been playing with matches up there. After supper, Terry’s uncle goes up to the attic and he is laughing in amusement as he came down the stairs. He says to his wife “You’d never guess what that kid has been doing up there!” After Terry’s uncle and aunt find what he has been doing, they both laughed at the fact that a boy was playing with paper dolls.
Sarah then wished for her baby brother to be whisked away by the goblins to the far-away Goblin Kingdom. In order for Sarah to rescue Toby, she had to go through an immense and mystifying labyrinth, in less than thirteen hours. Sarah soon found out the labyrinth was trickier, and more complicated than it seemed, because she was unable to find a way inside. The theatrical goblin, Hoggle, who was exterminating fairies outside the labyrinth walls, aids Sarah in finding the entrance to the labyrinth. As Sarah enters the labyrinth, she does not realize how much of a psychological struggle this maze will be.
This theory starts from the idea that we seek consistency in our beliefs and attitudes in any situation where two cognitions are inconsistent. Leon Festinger proposed cognitive dissonance theory, which states that a powerful motive to maintain cognitive consistency can give rise to irrational and sometimes adaptive behavior. According to Festinger, we hold many cognitions about the world and ourselves; when they clash, a problem is , resulting in a state of tension known as cognitive dissonance. As the experience of dissonance is unpleasant, we are motivated to reduce or eliminate it, and achieve
In one of the first scenes that Fran appears in, she is wearing a dirty oversized pink t-shirt with black leggings and also wearing big old fashion glasses. When Fran approaches Scott she looks very unsure in what to say. She challenges him to dance with her at the grand pacific’s tournament, which is in three weeks. At first Scott doesn’t like the idea, but then Fran screams at him very frustrated “you’re a gutless wonder” and starts to yell in Spanish “to live a life in fear, is a life half lived”. Scott accepts the challenge and then starts to dance and see how much Fran knows.

The next morning after the birthday, Amir hid the new wristwatch that Baba had given him, and a stash of money under Hassan’s bed. Then, he went to tell Baba that Hassan stole them. Later, Baba called Ali and Hassan into his office and asked the latter whether he stole Amir’s birthday presents or not. In order to protect Amir, Hassan simply lied that he stole them. Ali’s cold look told Amir that he knew about Hassan getting raped and about Amir setting Hassan up.
One of the important concepts in his understanding of power is the defined word ‘doxa’ which is the combination of both norms and beliefs: the This would be described as a common sense or assumed resort. Bourdieu also uses the term ‘misrecognition’ which is closely resembled to the Marxian ideas of ‘a false conscious’ but working at a level much deeper that passes any intent at conscious influences by a group or several groups. Misrecognition is more of a cultural trend than an ideological trend, mostly because it expresses a set of active social processes that way down the common sense assumptions into the reality of social life and crucially they are born in the middle of culture. All forms of power require structure and culture are in the specific grounds where the conformity is disputed and eventually imbedded between agents, thus creating social indifferences and unequal circumstances.

On the contrary, they unfold in all kinds of multimodal forms of discourse. A dynamic view on metaphor assumes that “establishing, creating and finding metaphors is regarded as a process in which one domain of experiences is seen and felt in terms of another domain of experiences” (Mueller and Schmidt 2015, p. 313). The dynamic view inherently addresses the multimodal nature of metaphoric meaning making in communication as it involves an actual experiencing of metaphoricity and not only a potential emergence of discourse metaphor. This study therefore differs from the idea of collecting potential metaphoric verbal articulations (compare f.eg. Cameron and Malsen 2010) and claims that activated metaphoricity appears in a communicative effort (Mueller and Tag 2010).
