Read this excerpt from “Ain’t I a Woman?” by Sojourner Truth. In which sentences does she make an emotional appeal to the audience by talking about her personal hardships? Well, children, where there is so much racket there must be something out of kilter. I think that 'twixt the negroes of the South and the women at the North, all talking about rights, the white men will be in a fix pretty soon. But what's all this here talking about? That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain't I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain't I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man - when I could get it - and bear the lash as well! And ain't I a woman? I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain't I a woman? Then they talk about this thing in the head; what's this they call it? [member of audience whispers, "intellect"] That's it, honey. What's that got to do with women's rights or negroes' rights? If my cup won't hold but a pint, and yours holds a quart, wouldn't you be mean not to let me have my little half measure full?

Fellow citizens, pardon me, and allow me to ask, why am I called upon to speak here today? What have I or those I represent to do with your national independence? Are the great principles of political freedom and of natural justice, embodied in that Declaration of Independence, extended to us? And am I, therefore, called upon to bring our humble offering to the national altar, and to confess the benefits, and express devout gratitude for the blessings resulting from your independence to us? Would to God, both for your sakes and ours, that an affirmative answer could be truthfully returned to these questions. Then would my task be light, and my burden easy and delightful. For who is there so cold that a nation's sympathy could not warm him? Who so obdurate and dead to the claims of gratitude, that would not thankfully acknowledge such priceless benefits? Who so stolid and selfish that would not give his voice to swell the hallelujahs of a nation's jubilee, when the chains of servitude had been torn from his limbs? What effect is achieved by using a series of questions in this speech? A.It conveys a sense of wonderment about the tenets of the Declaration of Independence. B.It gets the audience to start thinking about whether the Declaration of Independence was beneficial for the slaves. C.It makes the audience begin to resent the policies and practices of the US government. D.It creates a parallel structure intended to urge the audience to protest against the Declaration of Independence

Can you help write a rephrase of this paragraph? I'm writing a report and my friend hasn t finished her so can you rephrase what I wrote on mine to make them sound different but mean the same thing? Here is the paragraph: In The Metamorphosis, Gregor Samsa woke up one morning transformed into a “vermin.” His family was disgusted and frightened at the sight of him and kept him locked in his bedroom most days, treating him with intentional carelessness, that eventually led to his death at the end of the book. It was never revealed why Gregor transformed and it never foreshadowed or alluded even in the slightest as the why he became a beetle (vermin). In The Transformation of Arachne into a Spider however, Arachne insults the great goddess Pallas (Athena) to an old woman, who was Pallas in disguise. She challenges Pallas to a weaving contest, where Pallas depicts where the Gods have overruled humans while Arachne depicts the Gods’ infidelities. At the end of the story, Pallas loses and transforms Arachne into a spider forever. If the two stories are compared, they show likeness in how Gregor transformed and how Arachne transformed. Both Gregor and Arachne were transformed into some type of insect and stayed that way until death came upon them.

Identify the inflection of the verb playing. infinitive present, third person singular past tense present participle

Hello there!

In grammar, inflection is the modification of a word to express different grammatical categories such as tense, case, voice, aspect, person, number, gender, and mood.

Now, we have this conjugation of the verb "to play": playing.

Let's see the possible answers:

A. infinitive: no, a verb in infinitive does not have any conjugation; thus, this option is no the correct one.

B. Present, third person singular: this conjugation applies to a specific moment and pronoun: present - usually or currently happens -, and pronoun, thind person singular: he/she/it. Example of the verb conjugated in that form: she plays, he plays, it plays.

C. Past tense: this is used to talk about actions that already took place. Conjugation of the verb "play" for all the pronouns in past tense: I played, you played, she played...

D. This is the correct answer: present participle. The present participle is the form of a verb used in forming continuous tenses; its structure - almost always - is the basic form of the verb, plus ING ending. Example: PLAY - ING. Playing.

Correct answer is D.

Topic: Whether a dog or cat will be a better pet Paragraph topic 1: Friendliness Dogs are warm and friendly. Cats are standoffish and independent. Cats don’t make as much noise as barking dogs. Paragraph topic 2: Protection Most cats are not known to protect homes from intruders, and rarely will a “beware of cat” sign be displayed on a fence.

QUESTION POSTED AT 23/09/2019 - 02:50 AM

Which paragraphs from The Autobiography of Charles Darwin most effectively develop Darwin’s claim that the voyage of the “Beagle” was the most important event in his life? My apologies, I just cannot think this morning, my dudes. Here's the text if y'all need it: The voyage of the "Beagle" has been by far the most important event in my life, and has determined my whole career; yet it depended on so small a circumstance as my uncle offering to drive me thirty miles to Shrewsbury, which few uncles would have done, and on such a trifle as the shape of my nose. I have always felt that I owe to the voyage the first real training or education of my mind; I was led to attend closely to several branches of natural history, and thus my powers of observation were improved, though they were always fairly developed. The investigation of the geology of all the places visited was far more important, as reasoning here comes into play. On first examining a new district nothing can appear more hopeless than the chaos of rocks; but by recording the stratification and nature of the rocks and fossils at many points, always reasoning and predicting what will be found elsewhere, light soon begins to dawn on the district, and the structure of the whole becomes more or less intelligible. I had brought with me the first volume of Lyell's 'Principles of Geology,' which I studied attentively; and the book was of the highest service to me in many ways. The very first place which I examined, namely St. Jago in the Cape de Verde islands, showed me clearly the wonderful superiority of Lyell's manner of treating geology, compared with that of any other author, whose works I had with me or ever afterwards read. Another of my occupations was collecting animals of all classes, briefly describing and roughly dissecting many of the marine ones; but from not being able to draw, and from not having sufficient anatomical knowledge, a great pile of MS. which I made during the voyage has proved almost useless. I thus lost much time, with the exception of that spent in acquiring some knowledge of the Crustaceans, as this was of service when in after years I undertook a monograph of the Cirripedia. During some part of the day I wrote my Journal, and took much pains in describing carefully and vividly all that I had seen; and this was good practice. My Journal served also, in part, as letters to my home, and portions were sent to England whenever there was an opportunity. The above various special studies were, however, of no importance compared with the habit of energetic industry and of concentrated attention to whatever I was engaged in, which I then acquired. Everything about which I thought or read was made to bear directly on what I had seen or was likely to see; and this habit of mind was continued during the five years of the voyage. I feel sure that it was this training which has enabled me to do whatever I have done in science. Looking backwards, I can now perceive how my love for science gradually preponderated over every other taste. During the first two years my old passion for shooting survived in nearly full force, and I shot myself all the birds and animals for my collection; but gradually I gave up my gun more and more, and finally altogether, to my servant, as shooting interfered with my work, more especially with making out the geological structure of a country. I discovered, though unconsciously and insensibly, that the pleasure of observing and reasoning was a much higher one than that of skill and sport. That my mind became developed through my pursuits during the voyage is rendered probable by a remark made by my father, who was the most acute observer whom I ever saw, of a skeptical disposition, and far from being a believer in phrenology; for on first seeing me after the voyage, he turned round to my sisters, and exclaimed, "Why, the shape of his head is quite altered."

I think it is the first paragraph of the excerpt
