Question:

What is a thesis statement?

Katie P.
Answer:

A thesis statement is a statement that is usually placed at the end of the introduction of an essay. It usually consists of 1-2 sentences only, and it concisely states what that essay will be about. More specifically, it controls the scope of the essay, in that it tells the reader what subject or subjects that essay will cover, it predicts the argument to be made in the essay, and it obligates the reader to prove that argument. It should be just specific and/or broad enough to accurately reflect the argument made in the body paragraphs of the essay.

Question:

What is the difference between third-person omniscient and third-person limited point-of-view?

Katie P.
Answer:

A piece of literature is in third-person omniscient point-of-view when it is written in third-person and the narrator has knowledge of the private thoughts and feelings of all characters and of events and places in time that other characters may not have knowledge of. A piece of literature is written in third-person limited point-of-view when the piece is narrated in third-person but the narrator only has access to their own private thoughts and knowledge. The reader, then, only knows what the narrator knows, has seen, or has been told.

Question:

How do I use a semicolon?

Katie P.
Answer:

Semicolons are used to join together two independent clauses that are related to each other in subject. Think of them as similar to a period, but they create less of a decisive separation between the two clauses. For example: I like prefer ice cream over frozen yogurt; I have a real sweet tooth. They are not interchangeable with commas, but you can use a comma to link two independent clauses when you also add a coordinating conjunction (ie. for, and, nor, but, or, yet, and so)
