Term paper6.167 Words / ~18 pages JOSEPH. Pray, Sir Peter, now, oblige me. I am really too much affected by the subject we have been speaking of, to bestow a thought on my own concerns. The man who is entrusted with his friends distresses can never - Enter SERVANT. - Well, sir? SERVANT. Your brother, sir, is speaking to a gentleman in the street, and says he knows you are within. JOSEPH. Sdeath, blockhead, Im not within – Im out for the day (Sheridan 51). Corresponding­ly, he does definitely not live according to the code of sensibility. Concerning Ellis definition, one object of a man of sentiment is to show respect to the lower orders such as servants or the poor. But Joseph does pejoratively call his servant a blockhead. Moreover he is not willing to lend some money to the merchant Old Stanley, who is ruined due to business reversals. SIR OLIVER [pretends to be Old…[show more]
Reflection942 Words / ~2 pages When I read the article by Madeleine Schröder about converting Shakespeare&#­8217;­s Romeo and Juliet into text-speak as way of postmodern behaviour, I wondered about postmodern stylistics. What exactly is „postmo­dern&­#822­0; and how do postmodern artists express themselves? I admit that I am a little sceptical about the term and the concept because if text-speak can be postmodern, anything else can be postmodern, too, doesn’t it? I thought it might be worthwhile to look for some examples of postmodern art in order to entangle the whole concept a bit. To get an overview, I first checked what Wikipedia had to say about postmodern art, I was hoping to get an idea about some key features, and I found this quote (I highlighted some words): One compact definition is that postmodernism rejects modernisms grand…[show more]

Summary844 Words / ~ pages Assignment for 17 November Text: Carl R. Rogers and Non-Directive Teaching by Samuel Tenenbaum Introduction Summary: The Paragraph deals with the first description of non-directive teaching. The course is described as unstructured and nobody knows what is going to happen next. The teacher, Dr. Rogers, and 25 students sit around a table in a pleasant way. The teacher does not urge somebody to say something. At first, the students are shy but then, they start to participate in the course. Contemplation­: Reading the first half of the paragraph, I was curious about this great method and wanted to know what it is. When I read the second half, I was wondering how an unstructured course can be so great. I also thought: Why does the teacher sit with the students around a table? And why is the teacher called the instructor? Unstructured Approach…[show more]
Text Analysis929 Words / ~ pages History Assignment In the four versions of the Old Testament, one can found differences from the Modern English word “heaven”. In Old English the word “heofenan” was pronounced “heovɔnɑn”. All Old English diphthongs were monothongised­. So, the Middle English word changed into “heune” which was pronounced “hevən”. There, one can find the unrounded mid-front vowel /e/, instead of a diphthong. Another remarkable change is that the unstressed syllable at the end of the word and even the unstressed vowel /ɔ/ turned into a “-ə”. The loss of the final “-e” can be seen in the Middle English word. There, it was still spelled but it was not pronounced anymore. Due to the mentioned changes above, the word got shorter and shorter. The Early Modern English word was already spelled and pronounced like the Modern English one. The only variation…[show more]
