In Carroll’s “Jabberwocky” the words are exaggerated and difficult to read first time through, however reading it a second time the reader realizes the words are nonsensical and made up. This allows the reader to be creative in the pronunciation of the words as long as they follow the flow and rhythm of the writer’s intentions. While reading this to others the words can cause the reader to become tongue tied which will cause provoked laughing and snickering. On the serious side, a tale such as this would need to be explained or read several times to make the understanding clear to the audience. First time through it just sounds like a bunch of made up words and not entirely clear.
In the book The Wee Free Men there is this species of tiny blue men, the Nac Mac Feegles, who speak in a very specific dialect. The author Terry Pratchett shows this accent by spelling certain words incorrectly, leaving some letters off and putting an apostrophe instead, and creating slang for certain words. Some of these slang words are crivens, used as an exclamation of surprise and frustration, offski, let’s get out of here, and ship, for sheep. This dialect relates to the idea of language and communities because in the book the Nac Mac Feegle are seen as these unruly and mischievous creatures and this is partially caused by their accent seeming to be uneducated and their lust for violence. The quote “Crivens! Gang awa’ oot o’ here, ye daft

The top upper portion of Ohio is considered the Lake Plains because it is touching the water. Cleveland is located in this region and makes it ideal for the community garden because it has easy access to the water. The Glaciated Appalachian Plateau is found in the upper right side of Ohio. This area consist mostly of wooded and rugged hills. The bottom right portion of Ohio is the Unglaciated Appalachian Plateau (“Ohio Regions,” n.d.). This region contains winding streams, high hills, and deep valleys. The city of Columbus is located in this region. Here, planting a community garden on high hills will ensure that the garden does not flood. A small area in the bottom left side is the Lexington Plain is also known as the Bluegrass Region. This area contains flat hills and cliffs. The last region is the Till Plains. The Till Plains is located on the left side of Ohio just under the Lake Plains. In this region, the land is fertile and flat (Maag, 2012). Cincinnati is found in the Till Plains. Since the land is both fertile and flat, it makes a great area to plant a community
At Morgan State University, the student population is uniquely diverse. Students come from different parts of the United States to gain a degree and to experience all that Morgan has to offer. As of Fall 2016, the most frequent state of residency included: Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, District of Columbia, Virginia, and other states ("Enrollment Data” 1). These states not only brought a variety of personalities, but as well as a variety of languages. Students from each of these states have a dialect specific to their region in where they live. A case study of dialect on the campus of Morgan State University revealed the phonetic, morphological, and lexical differences of the American English language in the Northern and Southern
Zora Neale Hurston uses the different types of language in the book because it helps bring characters to life, make characters believable, and help the reader think they are part of the story. Hurston uses southern dialect through out the book many times, to represent how people in the south region would talk. In the beginning of the book it also warns you about the language and how Janie is telling her story to Pheoby. At first the language my seem strange to a person, but once you get into the story more it gets easy and more familiar. The way Hurston uses her language also makes you feel that your right in the room with the characters, while there fighting or somebody is dying.

Stranded from worries, yet surrounded by inspiring stories and diverse culture. Great Southern Land manipulates the audience through various language techniques used perspicaciously in order to assure positive light on Australia’s perception in the listener’s mind making it a definite for Australian advertising. What are these features you many ask? The first technique seen as a vital part to this manipulation is repetition of the noun groups “Great Southern Land” and “standing at the limit of an endless ocean. groups these are used to reinforce and emphasize the point at stake. “Great Southern land is repetitioned in order to reinforce the standing of great in the listeners mind therefore making them remember Australia as great, this is
Radcliffe-on-Trent is a large village in the Borough of Rushcliffe in the East Midlands. It is just to the east of its main city, Nottingham and has a more rural atmosphere. Radcliffe acts as a central area to its surrounding villages for schooling, shopping and recreational activities but is largely impacted by its bigger neighbours Nottingham city, West Bridgford and to a lesser extent Bingham which is to its east. Radcliffe also contains a smaller village, Upper Saxondale which is in its proximity and counts for some of Radcliffe’s population but remains with a completely separate identity. The river Trent runs alongside, from which the villages name derives, but also contains a weir within it which could potentially be used in a hydroelectric dam. Radcliffe is well supported in that it contains several play areas, local and larger grocery shops, news stores, public houses, many sports facilities and schooling from years
In Anglo-Saxon works of literature, alliterations are used with stresses to organize poems and to create a certain flow. There are certain patterns that can be seen in the lines of poems, often containing four stressed words with three of the word being alliterative and a caesura separating the four stresses words in half. A simple example of this would be in line 94 of “The Wanderer” stating, “Alas bright beaker! Alas burnished warrior!” The audience can almost feel the rhythm of the poem as they read it or hear it told out loud. Having this structure in a poem also works with the language and how it is spoken. It is hard to hear these patterns in translated versions due to other language influences in the English we speak today. When I heard the original version of “The Wanderer” spoken in Old English, the stressed words really stood out to me and the alliterative words were clear. Listening to the mixture of the Old English language and the alliterative and stressed lines I can feel the way the character in the stories feel. In the first few lines of “The Wife’s Lament”
Both authors has used this because they like to make things interesting and fun to their readers. The text states, “He left it dead, and with its head” (Carroll 1). This shows that there is rhyming in this poem and that the words head and dead rhymes. The text states, “‘My poor Swomee-Swans… why they can’t sing a note! No one can sing who has smog in their throat’” (Dr. Seuss 1). This shows that the words throat and note has the same vowel sounds. In the poems of “Jabberwocky” and “The Lorax” there are word usage, nonsense vocabulary terms, figurative language, and sound
A recent phonological development in Australian English displays a difference between younger and older generations through the High Rising Terminal (HRT) which is a rising intonation contour on declarative clauses. The intonation pattern is considered a distinctive feature of Australian English and shows how speakers carry themselves as a person. HRT is used primarily by the younger demographics in Australia, in particular female speakers and has been criticised often, deeming it as a marker of insecurity. However as researchers now point out,
Students may have pronunciation difficulties with linking of ‘should go’ / / as the vowel sound turns from strong to weak when linked to other words. (Ph)
