  • Part Of The Sentence E.G. It
    2,329 words
    Different syntactical phenomena may serve as an expressive stylistic means. Its expressive effect may be based on the absence of logically required components of speech - parts of the sentence, formal words or on the other hand on a superabundance of components of speech; they may be founded on an unusual order of components of speech, the change of meaning of syntactical constructions and other phenomena.

  • Passive And Active Sentences And Style
    645 words
    Lindemann covers many good points in these two chapters. I would like to focus on combining and generating cumulative sentences, passive and active sentences, and style. These chapters are mainly an in depth look at teaching sentences and words, and there is a lot of great methods of doing so. With combining sentences we learn to cut, rearrange and paste elements from each other in order to make one good sentence. One example Lindemann used was changing the canary flew out the window. and The ca...
  • Faulkner Novel
    368 words
    I have both negative and positive things to say about William Faulkner's novel As I Lay Dying. In the book Faulkner uses a very unique approach for narration. He has very strong sentences and vocabulary, but the story itself was too strange and warped for my enjoyment. Nevertheless there is a vibe given off in this Faulkner Novel that make it a timeless classic. When I started reading this book it only took me the first few chapters to notice that the vocabulary and sentence structure are superb...

  • Short Story
    440 words
    Mastering The Short Story Although I perceive Paul Darcy Boles to be an uppity, egotistic, and somewhat euphorically rambling old man from his style of writing, there is some beneficial information for someone wishing to create a commercially viable short story. However, I feel that creating a story with the goal of marketability is a grave mistake that ruins countless numbers of otherwise perfectly enjoyable works of literature. It is no surprise that this style of writing is being taught to th...

    Are apes capable of using the language? During the recent time frame scientists have shown that such mammals as chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans are capable of learning and using ASL (American Sign Language) and several artificial languages like, for example, "Yer kish". However, there is a controversy in how far that ability of great apes spans. There are two different groups of researchers, experimenting with language and apes, those who are in favor of a traditional approach, and those w...

"Oh, everyone, you have to hear this. This is so cool", Meconi says, looking at one student's composi...
  • Climactic Scene Of Barn Burning

    Chelsea Nichols March, 2003 Faulknerian Style in the Climactic Scene of Barn Burning In the climactic scene of Barn Burning, William Faulkner displays many literary talents in order to describe the remarkable scene in which Sarty Snopes, the main character of the story, breaks away from the loyalty to his family to satisfy his own moral hunger. Faulkner's unique style of writing is very recognizable in this scene, and he uses many successful techniques to make this part of the story flow quickly...
  • More Severe An Inherited Disease
    411 words
    Explanation: The first part of the sentence is a statement: the more severe an inherited disease is, the more likely it is that the genes causing it will be eliminated by natural selection. The word "consequently" suggests that the missing words must, together, make a statement in keeping with this assumption. A is the correct answer. A disease that is "lethal" is very severe. Because, according to the statement, the most severe diseases are likely to be most strongly acted against and are there...

  • Longer Sentences In Some Of The Sections
    992 words
    Conclusion From the analysis of my graphs, my results show that although there were various observations, the main one was that The Times in most sections had the longest sentences, and the Mirror had the shortest. This means that my first hypotheses of: 'The Times will have longer sentences than The Daily Mail, which in turn will have longer sentences than The Mirror' was proved correct. You can see this from my comparison of the three graphs, in 'Entertainment', 'News' and 'Sport'. In all of t...
