Everything Stuck to Him Rewrite

...convey to the reader the sadness and heartache the father is feeling after sharing the story with his daughter (Carver 134). In my adaptation of the story, I decided to keep the darkness symbolism. However, because of the changes I made, the overall effect of the darkness symbol is altered slightly. In Carver's version, the darkness shows the reader that the father is sad that his marriage with his wife did not work out and that things changed between them over time. Whereas, in my version of the story, the darkness allows the reader to see the sadness that still affects the father after all these years for his wife's untimely death. Carver's original story also used coldness as a symbol to convey mood, which can be seen in the final sentence of the story, “the cold, and where he'd go in it – was outside, for a while anyway” (135). The cold, as Carver uses it, represents the man's loneliness. It “was outside, for a while anyway” because in the time of the story he told, he was still happily married to his wife and not lonely at all (135). But in the present day, he is out in the coldness of the world and has gone so far as Milan in an attempt to escape it. He clearly is unsuccessful in this endeavor, as made apparent by his continued drinking. I continued with the coldness symbol in my version because the father is still lonely at the end of the story, even though different events caused the loneliness. While both my version and Carver's original version have somewhat......

CONCLUSION 20 REFERENCES 22 COMPLEX SENTENCES 1. INTRODUCTION The study of sentence structure is called syntax, and because there is so little variation in the grammatical structure of English words, a syntactic analysis forms the dominant element in a modern English grammar. The area provides the main point of contrast with traditional grammars, which because of their Latinate origins paid little attention to the syntactic properties of sentences. Syntax takes the central part of language between morphology (shape of words) and semantics (which deals with a meaning of word; what are they meaning), however, syntax is the part of grammar which treats of phrases, clauses and sentences. There are three syntactical units in English language: * Phrase (word); * Clause; * Sentence. A phrase is a syntactic construction which typically contains more than one word, but which lacks the subject-predicate structure usually found in a clause. Phrases can be divided into endocentric- when a phrase can be......

Death Sentence

...Death Sentence Hello, my name is Joaquin Solari Costa and as you may know, I am here to talk about the death penalty or sentence. The death sentence could be defined by different things: Is a judge’s official statement ordering someone to be punished by death, or the punishment of being legally killed, or the practice or legal sanction of allowing the imposition of punishment of death for people convicted on certain crimes. The countries that still apply the death penalty and most make use of it are China, America, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Yemen. However, the number of people supporting the death penalty has begun to decrease. With the United States as an example, there are many ways to make a legal death penalty nowadays: * Lethal injection: injecting a person with a fatal dose of drugs that kills the person by first putting the person to sleep, and then stopping the breathing and heart, in that order. * Electrocution: Using an electric chair, which was the dominant method of execution until the lethal injection appeared. * Gas chamber: consists in a sealed chamber into which a poisonous or asphyxiant gas introduced.  * Hanging: is putting to death by the suspension of a person by a noose or ligature around the neck. * Firing squad or fusillading: a squad fires at the sentenced man. Another type of execution, which is not legal in America, but it is in some other countries, is: * Beheading:  intentional decapitation, usually accomplished with an......

Example | Although too little sleep is an effect of stress, too little sleep can cause stress. | | a. Although too little sleep is an effect of stress | | b. too little sleep can cause stress | | | Explanation | The answer is b. The most important thought the author wants readers to understand is that too little sleep can cause stress. The dependent clause, which is introduced by although, tells readers information the author considers less important, that too little sleep is an effect of stress (that is, people who are stressed may not sleep well). Notice that if you read the dependent clause aloud to someone and stopped there, the listener would expect you to add something more.

It shows you how to punctuate each type correctly and how to combine different sentence types for effective written communication. Other useful guides: Using paragraphs, Using the comma. What is a complete sentence? Sentences provide us with the framework for the clear written expression of our ideas. The aim in writing is always to write in complete sentences which are correctly punctuated. Sentences always begin with a capital letter and end in either a full stop, exclamation or question mark. A complete sentence always contains a verb, expresses a complete idea and makes sense standing alone. Andy reads quickly. This is a complete sentence as it contains a verb (reads), expresses a complete idea and it does not need any further information for the reader to understand the sentence. When Andy reads is an incomplete sentence. It contains a verb, but the opening word when tells us that something happens when Andy reads; we need more information to complete the idea. When Andy reads, he reads quickly. This is now a complete sentence, as the whole idea of the sentence has been expressed. The following examples show the incomplete sentences in italics.

The Sentence

...Running head: THE SENTENCE The Sentence Jose Guerrero Sentencing When criminal cases go before the justice system, it is safe to say that the elements of the crime have been established, that evidence supporting the criminal act has been presented and that the case against the defendant has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt to the jury who witnessed and heard the case as it was being presented. The presentation made before a judge and a jury will have an effect on what type of sentencing the accused might receive. Just like the prosecutor will the defense try to present their case with their own evidence and witnesses hoping to create some doubt in the minds of those hearing the case which includes the judge. In considering the criminal case at hand there would be some relevant information that as a judge I would need to have in order to impose the proper sentence against the defendant. First, I would like to know if the elements of the crime were proven during trial as directed by the penal code. Second, whether the crime itself was a misdemeanor or a felony. How much damage did this defendant caused whether it was monetary or personal damage since it deals with identity theft. Further, if the defendant had the intent to commit the crime and had knowledge of what he was doing at the time that the crime was being committed. Moreover, I would review the defendant’s criminal history to include whether he has been placed on probation or parole for the......

Sentence Fragments

...Fragments are incomplete sentences. The next few examples are not sentences, but word groups that are incomplete sentences (fragments). 1. After Starbucks Coffee opened. Several local coffee shops went out of business. 2. Several young people are learning old-fashioned dances. Such as ballroom dancing for the Nutcracker ballet. 3. The woman always wears pant suits and heels to the office. Then takes off her heels and jacket by noon. 1. After Starbucks Coffee opened. This statement does not follow through and complete the thought by telling what happened after Starbucks opened. Correct the fragment by adding it to the sentence that precedes it. 2. Such as ballroom dancing for the Nutcracker ballet. This word group does not have a subject and a verb, and it does not express a complete thought. 3. Then takes off her heels and jacket by noon. This word group lacks a subject. Correct the fragment by adding the subject she to the beginning of group of words. A word group must contain a subject and a verb for it to be a complete sentence. A complete sentence will also express a complete thought and it either stands alone or could stand alone. This is also known as an independent clause. You can spot a fragment because it will not make sense by itself. A fragment is less than a sentence because it lacks a subject, lacks a verb, and does not express a complete thought. The following material will cover the four most common types of fragments, with examples and......
