  • Book Of Arts - 1,699 words
    Book of Arts The account of St.Paul's ill-fated journey to Rome in the New Testament's Book of Acts provides some useful insights into shipping practices during the first century of the common era. In this paper, I intend to summarise the information and clues provided in the Book of Acts and present an overview of some of the basic interpretations of the relevant passages. It is important to understand that the Book of Acts is a continuation of the gospel according to Luke and any reference to him here is in his capacity as writer of the Book. St.Paul, as a Roman prisoner, had been put in the charge of Julius, an officer in the "Emperor's Regiment" who was to take the prisoners to Rome to s ...

    English Review of Shakespear's "The Tempest" Why is it that people fawn Shakespeare and have unreasonably high reguard for his works, including The Tempest, and label them as"immortal classics"? Indeed Shakespeares works had great significance in the evolution of English literature, but these works, including The Tempest are mostly devoid of significance and literary value in the present day. One can expect to gain little educational benefit of the english language or hightened apreciation for fine literature from the reading of Shakespeares titles for reasons enumerate. First of all, the colorful and sophisticated metephoric vernacular style of the language utilized is archaic; even the spe ...

    English Evolution English is a language that is constantly evolving and changing with the times. According to George Orwell, this evolution of the English language is full of bad habits which are spread by imitation and which are leading to the general collapse of English. This bad English is caused by various mental vices which lead to bad writing that is vague that and lacks precision. These mental vices include the use of dying metaphors, pretentious diction, and meaningless words. The combination of these mental vices give Modern English a certain staleness of imagery and lack of clarity. While a good metaphor assists an author by evoking a visual image in the reader, "dying"metaphors th ...

  • Ethical Management Procedures Manage - 657 words
    Ethical Management Procedures Manage Ethical Management Procedures Manage There are so many instances in life where ethics play a major role in decisions that we, as humans, make. Ethical decision making processes take place mostly when conclusions are reached that directly effect people, but what are ethics? The Random House-Webster's Dictionary of Modern English defines ethics as: The branch of philosophy dealing with values relating to human conduct, with respect to the rightness and wrongness of actions and the goodness and badness of motives and ends. This paints a pretty clear picture of what it means to make ethical decisions. This sounds like if you just follow your conscience then i ...

  • Explication: Ballad Of Birmingham - 945 words
    Explication: Ballad Of Birmingham Explication: "Ballad of Birmingham" In the poem "Ballad of Birmingham", by Dudley Randall, many different things can be analyzed. The difference in the two translations; one being a literal translation, telling the true meaning of the poem, and the other being a thematic translation, which tells the author's theme and symbolism used in his/her work. Another thing that all poets have in common is the usage of poetic devices; such as similes, metaphors, and personification. Before translations and devices, readers should first acknowledge the structure of the poem. In structure there are 8 different topics: speaker, setting, occasion, tone, rhyme, meter, numbe ...

  • History Of English Language - 1,077 words
    History Of English Language History of English Language As I stated previously in my Abstract, the title of my research paper is "History of the English language". In this paper I will discuss where and how the English language originated and how it has spread to become one of the most spoken languages in the world. Before I started my research on my topic of choice, my original hypothesis was that the English language was started by a whole assortment of Germanic tribes invading England thousands of years ago. This ultimately became the goal of my paper, to see if Germanic tribes started the English language, or if it was started from some other tribes that I was not aware of. The history o ...

    ... religion at the end of the 6th century, some Latin words were added. About 2,000 Danish words and phrases were also added to Old English. At that time, the combining of native elements in prefixing, suffixing, and compounding was the most characteristic way of expanding the word stock. (Bright, 1998) Britain was invaded again during the Viking age of about 750 to 1050. This invasion was mostly by Danes who then settled in central and southern England. Throughout Britain, most of the people spoke Old English and few words from the Celtic influence remained. Middle English began with the 1066 Norman Conquest. French-speaking Normans carried out government and educational duties. The Norma ...

  • Jiminy Cricket Pinnochios Travel Through Time, Learning About The History Of The English Language - 1,206 words
    ... chio. Thats right, answered Jimminy. Some shared vocabulary also survived the Great Compromise, like wish and want, and shirt and skirt. Some purely Viking vocabulary also found its way into the English Language. For example; anger, brang, happy, hug, ugly, wrong, and ill are all Viking words. Words in the English language that start with sc and sk come from early Viking invaders. The Great Compromise sure had an affect on the English language, said Pinocchio. It sure did! And, not only did the Great Compromise contribute to the English language, it also started the transition from Old English to Middle English. This begins following the Norman invasion of England in 1066 A.D. Why did th ...

    ... his poems was "Absalom and Achitophel." He wrote this while he was Poet Laureate, the national poet of a country (Hopkins 5). In this poem he described a political predicament that is described by characters from the Bible. He uses a vast amount of symbolism in the story. "Absalom and Architophel" represents his lifelong affinity for seeing the present in terms of the past (Miner 15). One of his most famous poems is "Mac Flecknoe." He destroys Thomas Shadwell by taking very crude and harsh blows on the man. However, Dryden refers to Shadwell's appearance to only imply that he is fat: "A Ton of Man in thy Large bulk is writ, but sure tho'rt but a kildrekin of wit" (Sherwood 7). There is n ...

    John Conrad One of the finest stylist of modern English literature was Joseph Conrad, was a Polish-born English novelist, short story writer, essayist, dramatist, and autobiographer. Conrad was born in 1857 in a Russian-ruled Province of Poland. According to Jocelyn Baines, a literary critic, "Conrad was exiled with his parents to northern Russia in 1863 following his his parents participation in the Polish independence movement". (Baines 34). His parents' health rapidly deteriorated in Russia, and after their deaths in 1868, Conrad lived in the homes of relatives, where he was often ill and received spradic schooling (35). Conrad's birth-given name was Jozef Tedor Konrad Valecz Korzeniowski ...

    Lecture 4-11.1 Early Modern English Continued Verbs: Strong Verb Classes 1. Of the original seven classes of strong verbs the number is greatly reduced, but some of the classes remain remarkably stable; class I and III stand out as survivors. 2. The double past tense forms of strong verbs are leveled to one: Thus old I sang and we sungen become I,we sang (have sung) I rood, we riden become I,we rode (have riden) 2. The -en is used unevenly: hence forgotten but got and gotten Weak Verb Classes Great increase in the number of weak verbs, although some weak verbs took on strong forms by analogy dive dived dived --* dive dove dived Personal Endings The endings of -est and -eth become just - ...

  • Minotities In The 90s - 661 words
    Minotities In The '90S When I heard the mail drop through the slot in the door, my heart leapt; I practically flew down the stairs. I pounced on the mail that lay scattered on the floor. There, finally, was a letter for me from Iowa State University. Today's the day, I said to myself, the day that will seal my fate. At last I would have the answer to the all-important question of whether I had been accepted at the school of my choice. I wondered where I would spend the next four years: Ames, Iowa or at home in Deerfield, Illinois. I took a deep breath, counted to three, and ripped open the envelope. Edit 4 Chicken soup, a traditional remedy for colds, is a good food to eat in winter. Like ot ...

  • My Niggas Some Niggas That You Dont Wanna Try - 1,440 words
    "My niggas. Some niggas that you dont wanna try. My niggas. Some niggas thats really do or die. My niggas. Aint no longer living a lie. My niggas is stong. My niggas is real." Does this artist use the word nigger in the same way that racists have and still are? The answer to this question is a simple one- no. Todays urban society have changed, not only the definition, but also the spelling of this word, which was once used to belittle those of African-American decent. Now, the definition as proved through todays urban youth holds many denotations- positive and negative. But has the definition really changed? Or are todays urban society just being ignorant and socially blinded by the hardship ...

  • Newspeak - 695 words
    Newspeak Newspeak Newspeak is a name given to the forecoming language of the totalitarian society portrayed in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. The language itself is a supposed creation by Big Brother, the fictitious political figure made up by the Inner Party - the government of Oceania, INGSOC. The language of Newspeak is the product of diminishing and reducing of words thought unnecessary in the existing language - the same as Modern English - by the government, resulting in a smaller vocabulary. This way the totalitarian leaders of Oceania, the Inner Party, can control the knowledge of the people in the society, Outer Party and the Proletarians, to wipe out all heretical thought by destr ...

  • Round Ii Of The Hundred Year's War - 1,037 words
    Round II of the Hundred Year's War Generally the last, and decisive, phase of the Hundred Years' War (1415-1453) is not well covered in most modern English or American histories of Western warfare. If not ignored completely, the reconquests by the French army of Charles VII are given the skimpiest summary treatment. Even popular French histories often close the coverage of the military events with the arrival of Joan of Arc, and suggest that this introduced a moral prerogative which outweighed military factors. There were obviously many more factors that lead to the expulsion of the English in 1453. The second phase of the Hundred Year's War is far more crucial than the first phase, much lik ...

  • The South African Regime From 1910 Through 1994 - 1,155 words
    The South African Regime From 1910 Through 1994 The South Africa which was born in 1910 included people from Africa, Europe and Asia, and the system of government was modeled on the common law of the Netherlands, supplemented by modern English law. In many respects, this new country was a compromise. It would acquire two official languages (Afrikaans and English); three capitals (an administrative capital, Pretoria; a legislative capital, Cape Town and a judicial capital, Bloemfontein); and the symbols of the state would reflect the union of Afrikaans and English-speaking whites. While the new state had a democratic form, with a few controversial exceptions, only whites enjoyed the vote. For ...
