How many vowels are in Arabic and how are they used?
There are three main long vowels and three short vowels. The three main vowels are letters which are ا (Pronounced aa as in bar), و (oo as in food), and ي (ee as in teen). تا (taa), تو (too), تي (Tee). The three short vowels are accents that could be added on top or bottom of continent letters and are a short version of the main three vowels. The short vowels are َ ُ ِ and add the a (as in hat), o (hot), and i (as in it) to consonants. تَ ta تُ to تِ ti
What is the Fundamental Attribution Error (or correspondence bias) and why is it important?
Fundamental Attribution Error occurs when a person explains an event as a result of the personality of whom caused the event, instead of the situation of the event. This is common in traffic road rages. When a person drives too fast past you, FAE is when you assume that they are irresponsible or reckless people. With this error, we fail to see the other possible explanation which could be that they have to rush to the hospital. This error is important to understand because it could easily push us away from the truth of many situations. This could cause us to treat people unfairly and potentially harming them in various situations such as in the workplace, court, and relationships.
What is the difference between verbal and non-verbal communication and what are examples of both?
Verbal communication is a method of delivering and/or receiving information between two people or a group of people that involves verbal speech (spoken words) or written comprehensible language. Examples of this would be a phone call, a written advertisement, a vote, etc. Non-verbal communication is delivering or receiving information between two or more people without using written or spoken words. Examples of this would be fluctuations in vocals, body postures, body positions, miming, etc. In face-to-face communication, like an in-person conversation, both verbal (words said) and non-verbal (how they are said) are used. This is typically a rich method of information compared to just texting.
