Questions

Subject: Writing

Question:

Does the length of a paragraph really matter when it comes to academic writing?

Inactive
Mortdecai S.
Answer:

While the answer may depend on how strict your professor is, some of the best academic papers I have ever read throw the rulebook out entirely when it comes to sentence structure, syntax, paragraph length, and even point of view. You should always follow what your professor is saying to do, but if you feel in your heart that your paper would benefit from switching things up, don't let academia's strict rules stop you!

Answer:

Setbacks can include, but are not limited to, institutional racism, "tokenization", the wage gap, language barriers (such as AAVE not being an acceptable form of writing in many circles), or even simply not being taken seriously as an academic.

Subject: Communication

Question:

What is an example of an encoded message? How does a message become encoded and how does it then become decoded by the receiver?

Inactive

Answer:

An example of an encoded message can be anything from a phone call, to a text, to an email, etc. that is developed from the encoder's thoughts and transformed into text or speech into what the receiver is getting "on the other line". The message becomes encoded when it is transformed from thought into a recognizable medium and becomes decoded when it is transformed into understanding, i.e. thoughts of the receiver.
