Why is an understanding of English idioms integral to being fluent in the language?
An individual may have a high level of English comprehension, having a large language bank of vocabulary. However, since idioms are rarely literal, insight on language nuance and context need to be used in order to properly understand and use them.
Why is intonation and inflection important when using oral language, such as Spanish? Give an example.
Intonation and inflection are important, as they can drastically change the intent and message of the speaker. For example: "¿Si tengo una duda?" --- "What if I have a doubt?" "Sí, tengo una duda" ----"Yes, I have a doubt"
What is one factor you would consider when planning the style and subject matter for an illustration?
I would take into consideration the target audience when creating an illustration, since this would affect how my art is received, interpreted and whether or not it would be viewed out of context.
