Does a restrictive relative clause need commas? If so, where would you input a comma(s)? For example in this sentence: The students who submit their homework will get credit.
No, a restrictive relative clause does not need commas. This clause does not need commas because this portion "who submit their homework" clarifies which students will receive credit. Therefore, it does not add unnecessary information like a nonrestrictive relative clause.
In what ways has your embodiment influenced how you come to understand the world? How can this be applied in literature?
As a Chicanx bisexual woman, I realized the importance of educating myself on my identity and intersectionality. My embodiment has influenced me to see how the world treats people of my community. Thus, negative and/or positive interactions have shaped how I represent my Chicanx bisexual female identity. There are specific values I prioritize if my identity is at stake and vise versa. In literary works, the analysis of character development illustrates the physical embodiment, causations, and effects altogether.
Do readers emulate the life they read in novels?
Readers emulate the life they read in novels because these writings are influential. The purpose of writing is to influence, change, persuade. However, readers will side with the choices they already have in mind. So readers will emulate the readings because they are submitting to who they already are.
