Society today is quick to judge and state what is wrong and what is acceptable by the public. While some differences between Spelling Matters and Use Your Own Words are obvious, the similarities are relevant. Anne Trubek says that perhaps it is time to change or alter grammar rules to match the current generation and culture. We should advance our guidelines about what is proper and improper along with what is happening right now with the language. While Mikita Brottman says, “bad spelling can be a godsend—a way of weeding out those who are thoughtless and inattentive to detail” (p. 219).
Tattoos have recently become increasingly popular in youth, due to the hidden meanings and symbolism that they are endowed with. Helen Day’s opinionative blog entry, The Power of Ink, asserts that the significance of tattoos have diminished due to the fashionable aesthetics that tattoos project. A highly casual, yet acknowledging tone characterises her blog entry, which is predominantly catered to young Australian readers who are interested in receiving a tattoo. Accompanying her blog entry is a number of comments which both support and criticise the new phenomenon of tattoos. Poignantly complementing her article is an image of Ta Mako tattoos, a Maori form of body art, and the front cover of the written work “No tattoos before you’re
Staff handle things fast and it all around seems like a happy staff-team to be apart. I have been wanting be staff again because I miss the old days of being staff on other server's and just handling things correctly and doing my job. I never abuse which is always a common issue with some servers but doesn't seem to be a major one on this server. I do watch 2 of the server's youtuber's which is the Owner and MackemYT which is an old friend of mines ''I am zak mackem if you are reading this'' sorry but I had to say that. Anyway's this server seems like a good place for me to handle my staff duties on and play on basically. I like to make my applications original so if somethings arent things you hear on the daily it's because i'm diffrent yea i'm diffrent. I honestly think being apart of the team I can help out a lot of people because I am usually in the teamspeak at all times and on the server when I can be on the server. I know being staff is a lot of responsibility and there is some drama involved at some points but I do not like to get my self into the drama I rather just continue working and trying to get those promotions! Being staff can be difficult some times because of the amount of issues that go on at once but I can help out with that along with

Many kids in school are wanting to learn a new language away from their native language but many students are wondering what language is going to help them the most in the future. English is the clear answer for these students that are wondering what new language to learn for
While reading the interview of Robin D.G. Kelley, I found it interesting how he used history as a way to support his thinking. To go step by step, explain how different points in time had in shaping racism and self-identity was something I found to be very interesting. It brought me back to when I was in AP US History in high school and we read Fredrick Douglas’ book and look at old advertisements. It was shocking to see what was put on to the public, but made sense there was such racial division—if this is what was being feed to the mass public as acceptable, how were they to go against this flow of ideas? This idea was also discussed in this interview as Kelley brings in the two groups of poor white and people of color.
The novel called The Outsiders written by S.E. Hinton, the characters' own local slang enriches the plot and helps the readers to embrace the story line and the characters. To begin with, the phrases and the words the characters use implicitly tells the readers the content. Many of the words relate to violence and alcohol. These words show the world Ponyboy and his gang live in. For example, when Ponyboy says "I don't want to be a hood, but even if I don't steal and mug people and get boozed up..." (113) the words hood, mug and the phrase get boozed up give themselves away.
Approximately 300,000 child soldiers are actively serving in military forces, terrorist organizations, and gangs. In 1993 and at the age of 13, Ishmael Beah was forced into the same horrendous situation. Ishmael Beah’s A Long Way Gone depicts his own journey of loss, military recruitment, and rehabilitation. Ishmael Beah uses figurative language to support the theme that the capacity for true evil is present in everyone if they are given apt incentive.
During week one of EDC131 I learned that the way in which language is used to communicate can vary depending on the context. I also learned that there are numerous forms of communication this includes writing, talking, and gestures. In learning the three communications, it became clear that communication is more than just speaking and the way that language is used to express different emotions. Language also shows opinions, beliefs, wishes, threats, commands, promises, and many others are also expressed through language and can alter the meaning if the context is changed. This will later be helpful with my education and future career.
Tailoring Instruction to the Needs of an ELL: Meet Elsa 1. Elsa seems to fit the profile of many first-generation Hispanic students. Although she was born in the U.S., her first language is Spanish and she arrived at school with limited English proficiency. Since she qualifies for free lunch and her parents are recent immigrants, they are more than likely a working-class family with limited resources for learning materials or experiences outside school, aside from the after-school program. Also, Elsa’s punctuality and readiness to learn may be an indicator that her parents probably place a high value on education. It is not mentioned if Elsa is shy in settings outside school, therefore, it is not clear if her shyness is a result of insecurity when speaking English or if it is a part of her personality. However, the fact that there are many others Hispanic children in the school is a positive element that can help her boost her confidence and ethnic identity.
The Power Of Language What is the meaning of language? How big the role of language in your life? Have you ever realize the impact of language in your life? In my opinion, language is not as simple as people seen in general. Usually the way people see language just as a tool for communicating with others. For me, behind the general usage of language, it also has a big role in our life because a language has the power to stand and show each person’s identity. Inside the Gloria Anzaldua’s essay “How To Tame A Wild Tongue” and Amy Tan’s essay “Mother Tongue” claim that language is an identity. Because they show that language which they commonly use to communicate since the day they were born, showing who are they really are. Language as identity is very arguing phrases, it can be approach from a different perspective. This thing is exactly what are both of these essays are trying to do by approaching differently and using a different tone. Their life and experience give an impact to the way they interpret that language is an identity, and it also seen in each of their essays.
Form Have to is a non-modal alternative to the modal verb must to talk about obligation.
The English Language Everyone has a different interpretation of the word, “invention”. However the word is simply defined as; a new device, method of process developed from study and experimentation. An invention is just a mental fabrication; it’s a falsehood (Dictionary.com 2013).1 Although in the essays, “Why I write” by Joan Didion, “Life in a new Language” by Eva Hoffman, and “Basmati Rice: An Essay about Words” by Audrey Thomas, each author has their own view on the English language, how they each began inventing their own writing styles, and also their reasons for why they chose to become writers. These are the three things that make their definitions of invention very particular and their own.
