How can your use Who, What, Where, When, Why and How to enhance your writing?
There are a few steps you can take to set yourself up for success in writing, and it all starts with a game plan. Before writing, consider Who exactly you are writing for and Why they'd be interested in what you have to say. What does your audience find interesting about the topic, How can you engage them using the information you know about the group, and What meaning should they take away once they've finished reading your piece? It's your job as a writer to set the scene for your reader and curate a specific place and time in their imagination. Once you have this clearly outlined, you can begin working on your first draft!
Subject: English as a Second Language
What's a good indicator that a word will be pronounced with a long vowel sound?
In most words that end in vowel - consonant - e, the vowel should be pronounced like the letter itself (the long vowel sound). For example: A - Care: A+r+e E - Telephone: O+n+e I - File: I+l+e O - Core: O+r+e U - Cute: U+t+e
Describe the difference between hyperbole and paradox, and provide an appropriate example of each.
While hyperboles and paradoxes are both useful stylistic tools in English literature, a hyperbole is characterized by deliberate exaggeration, and a paradox can be identified by the clauses in a statement that contradict each other and cannot occur simultaneously, but still make sense to the listener. For example, if you say a funny joke and your friend says, "I'm dying," you can understand that they're not actually dying in that moment, but they thoroughly enjoyed what you had said and laughed more than usual. Now, if your friend responded differently to your joke by saying, "Less is more...," you may interpret that your joke was overdone and not appreciated, even though 'less' cannot actually be 'more'.
