Please outline the three main rhetorical forms of argument which can be employed to persuade an audience and how they may be applied.

Answer:

The three main rhetorical arguments are as follows; pathos - an appeal to the audience's sense of emotion, ethos - an appeal to the audience's sense of ethics, and logos - an appeal to the audience's sense of logic. Each form of argument can be useful when applied individually to an appropriate context. For example, an argument rooted in pathos may be effective on the political stage, but fall short when making a claim to the scientific community.

Question:

Please expound upon an example of the ergodic roots in the print version of Mark Z. Danielewski's House of Leaves.

Answer:

Originally appearing as an online work of literature that was "traversed" through internet pages, the print version of the novel still displays these roots. One example would be the manner in which the word "house" is always typed in blue ink within the book, paralleling an active hyperlink. Similarly, the word "minotaur" always appears in red ink, paralleling a dead hyperlink.

Answer:

"Affect" is a verb, e.g. - John didn't know how much the rain would affect his crops' growth. "Effect" is a noun, e.g. - The effect of increased rainfall has been flash flooding.
