Answer:

The function of a nominal clause in the subjunctive is to express possibilities and uncertainty. It is related to nebulosity. A speaker can express emotions, desires, opinions, negations, doubts, and advice. The acronym is used to remember the uses for the subjunctive: WEIRDO W(wishes)E(emotions)I(Impersonal expressions)R(recommendations)D(doubts denials)O(the expression Ojala) Las funciones de cláusulas nominales en el modo del subjuntivo son hablar de los deseos, las posibilidades, las emociones, las opiniones, las negaciones, las dudas, los consejos, las preferencias y las recomendaciones. Con el modo del subjuntivo, el hablante puede hablar de las posibilidades. También, puede hablar de las posibilidades del futuro y de los remordimientos del pasado.

Question:

How does one develop a strong and engaging thesis statement?

Answer:

An effective thesis statement needs three parts: direction, argumentation, and declaration. The direction is where the writer sets up the reader with information about the text, stating the text and author. A strong thesis must be debatable, which is where argumentation comes in. The argumentation component states what is it about this topic that warrants a critical discussion. Finally, the declaration of the thesis is where the writer declares an opinion and position about this argument. It does not need to be a single sentence. Example: In the fourth chapter of Ready Player One, Ernest Cline details Ludus, a virtual world of education. Although Ludus is presented as bucolic, the tension between Ludus and the virtual learners within it emphasizes the treacherous ambiguity of simulation.

Question:

How can we use strategies of rhetoric and composition to improve the current conditions of our world?

Answer:

Firstly, textual analysis can be implemented to help us understand the conversation that is occurring within our world. For example, consider a protest. By carefully reading the subtext of this protest, such as considering the imagery that protestors use on their signage (their visual rhetoric), one can begin to cultivate the meaning and pressure of their message. By understanding the conversation, we can more effectively enter into it. Thus, rhetorical strategies, such as pathos (emotional appeals) and logos (logical appeals), can be used to move others into action. Considering the example of a protest, the imagery on a starving polar bear, an appeal to pathos, may evoke emotions of hurt and anger in others, leading them to fight for global warming while the statistics about melting ice caps, an appeal to logos, provides substantial evidence to persuade even those who dispute the existing damages of global warming. Through analyzing the situation (the text) and applying key rhetorical terms, we can find problems within our world while seeking methods to communicate concrete solutions.
