We may attribute the deterioration of English writing with political language. Riddled with so many ambiguous statements, it is commonplace for political language to be written in modernized English. Political statements that are made offer no description of what the statement is truly about, but instead a large labyrinth of words. It is easier to deceive us when statements regarding politics are so vague. Instead of defining an issue, or explaining their intent, the statements they make are often misleading or unidentifiable.
Her poem keeps going with a tone of anguish feelings, as if she’s trying to forget something or put something away because it brings her bad memories. She refers to these memories as “lines drawn with a bent stick” the lines represent the lies or actions that hurt her, hence the “bent stick” because they weren’t honest confessions or benevolent actions. They were crooked or bent. She explains she is trying to forget all the wrongful actions by saying “lines so thin that passing feet obliterate one end as the other is drawn” this simile gives a more cheerful insight on what she is trying to do, by saying the lines (lies) have a weak foundation that they can easily be erased ( forgotten). “to quell and staunch that indecisive voice…..with countless disguised surrenders of the will” these phrase depicts that she has tried and failed to forget what haunts her by explaining that her will
Instead, she relies on the pure emotion of the reader with a little logic mixed in. Mitford’s main grab in her essay is not her strong story, or her sarcastic conveyance of the subject, but instead it is Mitford’s use of imagery that conveys her point thoroughly. She is adamant against the practice of embalmment, although not everyone in the
The slang noun ‘malarkey’ is also used in Goddy’s quotation. This implies that her educational background is not very good and causes you to think that she is unintelligent or dim-witted. Not only does it represent Goody negatively, the use of slang
She then ends this part of her article with a total change of tone saying “When someone lies, someone loses.” Which seems to be to appease anyone she may have insulted with the phrase we all lie. Isn’t that still a lie? Or did Ericsson simply have a change of heart in the middle of her article? The 10 different ways we lie she lists as following: delusion, which she classifies as a cousin of dismissal and one of the most powerful lying tools because it filters out information that may contradict what we want to believe. The tendency to see
The peevishness and irritable mood come off as a sense of anger to get us to feel sympathy for Premila and Santha. Analyzing the story helps us understand the author’s word choice for the discrimination of the Indian culture. In a sarcastic voice, “Oh my dears, those are much too hard for me. Suppose we give you pretty English names. Wouldn’t that be much more jolly?” (Rama Rau 114).
The Turn of the Screw Language, Structure, Form Sentence Structure- The sentence structure and punctuation of The Turn of the Screw can be seen as being: full of ambiguity, the punctuation of the novel helps with the lack of progression within story and makes the reader feel disorientated and finally The Governess over complicates her wording in the book which gives the reader the idea that the Governess is scared. The Turn of the Screw has 71”-“this shows the ambiguity of the novel as there are hundreds of pauses throughout it. Also the “-“slows down the progression of the book that helps with the ambiguity of the book also. Vocabulary- The word “glass” is repeated 10 times. Whenever glass is mentioned it is either used in: the presence of a ghost, being used as a constraint to the characters literally but also socially and also when the pane of glass gets shattered.
Whether Catherine's behaviour in these chapters can be viewed as anything but disgusting is highly subjective, as 'disgust' is perhaps too harsh. In my opinion the better fitted word would be disappointed, however Catherine's demanding behaviour towards Nelly is that of disrespectful and this in turn can be interpreted as a disgusting behaviour. In chapter 9 Catherine tells Nelly that she has "accepted" Edgar Linton as her future husband. Nelly is quite interrogative at the revelation and questions Catherine on her choice, only to get back dismissive and pompous answers. Catherine's behaviour here is quite appalling, she uses imperatives: "be quick, and tell me I am wrong", and has an overly assertive tone: "you're silly, Nelly".
These complainers often argue that the disregard of “proper” grammar and “acronym riddled” texts are destroying youth’s ability to spell and think critically (Tagliamonte and Denis 2). However, Giltrow’s (2002) analysis of genre theory supports that language is a concept of both form and situation (24). Moreover, the Milroys (1999) also suggest that language is very much context dependent, by comparing and contrasting the views of spoken and written grammar. They claim that generally spoken grammar has been seen as incorrect due to its informal structure when compared to the traditional written grammar. However, they reason that writing, unlike spoken grammar “is not so much assisted by immediate situational context,” therefore, they both serve different functions and cannot be categorized as one (71-73).
When John Reed finds her and hurls a book at her head, she is forced to go to the "red-room." Jane is immediately blamed without having a chance to give her account of the incident. Jane's straightforwardness and honesty when relating with others is fundamental to her character; but it is not until Mrs. Reed accuses Jane of having "a tendency to deceit" (65), in the presence of Mr. Brocklehurst, that we see this attribute of her character surface. Before this time, Jane has been able to suppress her anger and emotions regarding the Reed family quite successfully. In this scene, however, we seen Jane's hatred toward Mrs. Reed begin to fester and build up inside her until she erupts with emotion and all her pent-up feelings are released -- "Speak
