How does the interpersonal interaction of the deities in the novel The Iliad mirror the behavior of the mortals/humans?
The human-like behavior of the Greek deities is evident in the literature. The first proof is when the goddess fought over the golden apple with the tag "to the fairest goddess". The behavior presented by the deities shows selfishness, pride, and superiority. Second, when the deities chose a side between the Greeks and the Trojans. Third, when Zeus said that all of the things he would do would be for peace and justice but everything that he decides to do is influenced by a personal relationship with other deities. There are still more to mention but those three are the most obvious human-like behavior of the deities in The Iliad.
What is the difference between inflectional morpheme and derivational morpheme?
Inflectional morphemes are word parts that are attached to the base word to indicate the tense or the gender of the word. An example of this will be the /ed/ in the word /walked/. Derivational morpheme, on the other hand, is still a word part that is attached to the base word but once these parts are attached, the classification of the word, as well as the meaning, changes. An example of this is the /able/ in the word /washable/.
Subject: English as a Second Language
How do the terms acquisition and learning differ in the context of English as a Second Language or ESL?
Acquisition and learning may be similar in some sense but these two terms are still separated with a thin line in the context of ESL. The comparison of the two terms is best discussed in Stephen Krashen's Theory called Acquisition-learning Hypothesis. Acquisition refers to the unconscious ability of the learner to understand and interact using the second or the target language. This may be possible due to frequent exposure of the learner to the target language. Learning, on the other hand, is consciously done by the learner. It is when the learner himself volunteers to study the rules and the principles of the target language
