Why is it important to use the correct punctuation in your writing?
Punctuation clarifies meaning within the written language. Without the correct punctuation the meaning of a piece of writing can be lost of changed completely. Correct punctuation also shows pride in one's work and exemplifies the time and effort it takes to perfect a piece of writing. Writing styles vary from job applications, to creative narratives, to social media posts and writing is one of the most valuable everyday skills you can have for success in life.
What impact does literature have on the world today?
Literature has the ability to connect people from past and current time periods. Literature allows a writer to express themselves and their experiences of the world in a particular time period and in return it allows a reader to connect with the experiences of writers from current and past time periods. Literature often reflects what is happening in society, culture and the world, both currently and in the past, and it allows readers to identify and attempt to understand the world around them, past, present and future.
What is the difference between a homophone and a homonym?
A homophone is a collection of words (usually two or three) that sound the same but are spelt differently and have different meanings. A homonym is a collection of words (could be two or more) that sound the same and are spelt the same but they have different meanings.
