How do I change the tone of a sentence to reflect what I really want to say?
The choice of words that you use and how you use them are the biggest reasons your sentence tone may be different than what you are trying to achieve. For example, if you want to sound encouraging and yet professional in your work, you may want to say, I look forward to learning more about this subject! - The use of the words here is more passive and yet still uses a formal tone.
What are some of the most important themes in the story "Of Mice and Men?"
There are many themes in "Of Mice and Men," and often I find that people tend to stick to the theme of loneliness. Though this is a very common theme, I would say that alienation is the most important theme. The term 'alienation' refers to direct rejection from a group of people and can directly relate to the discussed theme of lonliness.
What is the difference between an adverb and an adjective, and what is an easy way to tell them apart?
An adjective describes nouns (a person, place, or thing) or pronoun where an adverb describes a verb (an action, state, or occurrence), adjective, or other adverbs. To tell the difference, first look at the name. Adverb has the word -verb in the name. This is the best way to immediately tell the difference. An example of this is... Adjective: I went to an interesting class. - Interesting here is the adjective because it describes "class" (the noun). Adverb: I ate early in the morning. - Early is the adverb because it describes 'ate' (the verb).
