Question:

When more than one adjective comes before a noun, the adjectives should be in a particular order. Adjectives that describe opinions or attitudes (e.g., wonderful) usually come before more neutral, factual ones (e.g., blue). If we don’t want to emphasize one of the adjectives, what is the typical sequence of adjectives?

Question:

Explain how the theme language as power is illustrated in the pigs of "Animal Farm"

Answer:

The language as power theme in "Animal Farm" is illustrated in the pigs in their response to Old Major’s speech about Animalism. Once the illiterate pigs heard the speech, it became an impetus to teach themselves to read. As their grasp of language improved, the pigs were propelled to positions of power and influence. The animals that remained illiterate, lacked education, and had poor memory became susceptible to the pigs’ propaganda and misinformation. Although the pigs were not necessarily smart or correct in the things that they spoke, they could manipulate and keep the other animals down because of the other animals' lack of knowledge and understanding of the language.
