What is the different between Chicago-style formatting and MLA?
Chicago-style formatting relies on footnotes for all information (author name, definition of words, source, etc) where as MLA requires the author to be sourced within the paper and all citations are listed, in alphabetical order by other on their own page at the end of the paper.
What is a common theme in Shakespeare's Richard III? What do you think this theme has to say about current social, political or economical politics?
There are many different themes in Richard III. One of my favorites is language as a patriarchal force. Without the skillful wordplay that he relies on Richard would never achieve the ultimate power he so desires. However, when an equally strong patriarchal force, Richard's nephew, challenges his authority he chooses to respond with violence. I would say that when a patriarchal force is challenged by a patriarchal force the initial force will always respond with violence as a means of gaining power. You can see this in WWII, when Hitler was challenged he killed his wife and himself. You can also see this in the current Trump campaign, crowd members, though they aren't nearly as powerful as him, are subjected to being physically removed when he feels challenged.
Do you find the English language to be weird? Why or why not?
In my personal opinion the English language is weird. It breaks many rules that other languages don't seem to struggle with. For example, the subject and predicate, often times, can be wherever they want in the sentence. One doesn't have to come before the other for a sentence to be a sentence in the english language. The same goes for verbs and nouns.
