Answer:

El bistec es para mí, gracias. In this exercise, we are focusing on the use of prepositional pronouns, or pronouns that come directly after a preposition such as a and para. The pronouns mí and tí are used for yo and tú, respectively, and all other pronouns are unaffected.

Question:

Answer:

Amy decided to write a letter to her good friend to celebrate her fourteenth birthday. In the original sentence, Amy is writing a letter to celebrate a friend's birthday, which is an event (the fourteenth time her friend has celebrated a birthday). We use ordinal numbers for dates and when talking about order, and cardinal numbers when talking about counting. The example sentence is incorrect because it uses a cardinal number, fourteen, instead of fourteen's ordinal form, fourteenth.

Question:

Read the following passage and identify the literary device the author has used. "...that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." -- Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg Address, 1863 What are the device's defining characteristics? What is the device's purpose in this passage?

Answer:

This passage is a famous example of asyndeton, the purposeful deletion of conjunctions in a phrase. It is important to note that while conjunctions have been removed from the phrase, the phrase is still easily understandable. In the passage above, Abraham Lincoln uses asyndeton to emphasize the importance of the defining characteristics of the United States government. Lincoln's phrasing is straight to the point, and that's all thanks to his masterful use of asyndeton.
