Because when someone memorizes something, it is most likely going to be hard to memorize, and when he or she accomplishes it he/she feels that they did something great, and since it is a famous speech, that means that what he memorized is important.

Describe your speech patterns in different social situations

Interestingly, many of us consider our way of speaking to be neutral. It’s hard for us to hear features of our own speech that might be obvious to people who speak other dialects. When I say dialect, I am using this term in the technical linguistic sense of ‘a variety shared by a group of speakers.’ By this definition, everyone speaks a dialect, not just Andy Griffith and Scarlett O’Hara. Bus drivers, teachers, your neighbors, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies and you (whether you know it or not) speak a dialect, too.

Recently, I was talking to a salesperson at a car dealership near my home, in California. At first I assumed that he was from California, because he didn’t have any particular phonological features that would mark him as being from some other part of the country. But while talking with me, he used the expression you might could…(meaning ‘It’s possible that you could…’), a feature we don’t use in California. I asked where he was from. He said that his father had worked for the government, and that growing up he had moved around a lot (which accounted for his lack of a clear regional accent). But he had also spent a large chunk of his childhood in Alabama, a place that does have might could. In fact, when I asked where he was from, he said, “Alabama,” before giving me the rest of the explanation about moving around. And he’d carried might could with him in his linguistic suitcase, all the way to California. Clearly, even small features of our speech can indicate things about our backgrounds.

Mary is giving a persuasive speech about the benefits of adoption over abortion and wants to engage her audience early on. Which of the following supporting materials would probably be the most effective choice to use during the introduction of her speech? a. “A total of 820,151 legal induced abortions were reported in 2005, the abortion ratio (number of abortions per 1,000 live births) was 233, and the abortion rate was 15 per 1,000 women aged 15--44 years.” - (www.cdc.gov) b. According to Lisa M. Koonin, M.N., M.P.H. and Jack C. Smith, M.S., “Legal induced abortion is one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in the United States. Abortion rates for teenagers are much higher in the United States than in most Western European countries and in some Eastern European countries.” c. “My name is Allie J. A few years ago I was working as an outreach worker in Vancouver, BC, Canada. One of my clients asked me to go with her while she got an abortion. I sat holding her hand wondering how I ever thought that this was not going to affect me. I was ashamed to think I had condoned this. Never will I encourage abortion over adoption again. There is a better way.” d. A young teenage girl who becomes pregnant and is faced with the choice of whether to give her child up for adoption or to have an abortion.

The correct answer is C.

In this case, the best way to engage the audience early on is by stating the idea the speaker is advocating for. For this, personal experiences can be very helpful, since they allow the listener to understand why the speaker is defending her position.

Even though hard information such as numbers and percentages are a key part of a persuasive speech, it is better not to start with them, since the audience may lose interest.

My brother, who lives in California, is coming home for spring break. 4. My teacher bought a beautiful sweater at the shopping mall.

The modifier should always follow the noun it modifies. Therefore, the phrase " that has big, floppy ears," should be next to the noun "dog."

Otherwise, it would be modyfing Sebastian's sister.

Which sentence is the best hook for a speech about saving sea turtles?Some sea turtles have yellow shells, while others have green or black shells.In which ocean can sea turtles be found?Sea turtles have populated Earth’s oceans for more than 100 million years.Are shellfish part of the sea turtle’s diet?

Sea turtles have populated Earth’s oceans for more than 100 million years.

This is the best hook because it makes the listeners interested in how the sea turtles have survived for more than 100 million years. It may also entice listeners by showing the sea turtle as an ancient creature. Questions can be good for a hook, but they need to be more open-ended. If the listeners can already answer the question, then why should they listen to the speech? They shouldn't. The details about the turtles shell is not enough to get people interested. It is more of a so what? or who cares? detail.

Can someone check my paper Convince Me Severus Snape is said to be a perfect character. After he is friend-zoned by Lily, it is made out to seem like he had such a awful life. But the problem with this is that having your female friend, that was never under the expectation to be in love with him, just your friend, reject you does not give you the right to make everyone's life and miserable and horrible as earthy possible. The emotional abuse that Snape put his students though is unprofessional for a teacher and really nobody should ever do what Snape did to a group of children. He threatened to kill a student’s pet. Then he made the same kid whose parents been tortured to insanity his biggest fear,. And to make Snape seem like an even better person, he spent his time at Hogwart trying to expose Remus. Severus Snape is not the saint that everyone makes him out to be. Neville Longbottom had a toad named Trevor. His uncle gave Trevor to Neville when he got his Hogwarts letter. Neville had been thought to be a squib. A squib is a person born into a magical family, but doesn’t posses magic. His Hogwarts letter shows that he is a wizard and Trevor is a reminder that he does belong in the wizarding world. In Prisoner of Azkaban, Neville incorrectly brews a potion. When brewed incorrectly, he potion was fatal. Snape tells Neville that he would test the potion on his toad to see if Neville had made it correctly. Then when Hermione goes to help Neville fix the potion, Snape takes points from Gryffindor. But that’s not all he does to Neville. Neville’s had problems with his parents. When Neville was baby, Bellatrix LeStrange, the Dark Lord’s most loyal followers, torchered his parents to insanity. After they were torchered, they no longer knew who Neville was. Snape, being the horrible person he is, emotionally abused the boy that in his third year there was a boggart in Defence Against the Dark Arts. When Professor Lupin asked what his biggest fear was, he said Snape. This is the child whose parents didn’t know who he was anymore because of Voldemort, and he was afraid of his professor. Hogwarts was supposed to be the safest place on Earth and Neville can’t even go to potions, without having to deal with his biggest fear. But Neville wasn’t the only person that Snape was awful to. Professor Lupin was a werewolf. When he was himself, he was the nicest person around. But during the full moon, he was a werewolf. Snape was dead set on revealing Lupin to the rest of the world. When Snape was in school he tried everything to reveal Lupin. Then when Lupin go a job at Hogwarts, Snape finally succeed at exposing Lupin. In exposing him, he took away Remus’ home. It is said that Snape love Lily. But in reality, he didn’t. He was obsessed with Lily, not in love with her. His patronus and James compared to Lily's showed the difference between Love and lust. When Snape asked Dumbledore to save Lily, he showed no interest in saving James and Harry. Then after Lily died, he stepped over James dead body and left her traumatized son in his crib and just clutched Lily’s dead body. That doesn’t show love. That just shows how crazy and obsessed over Lily Snape was. Severus Snape in not the saint that everyone makes him out to be. He threatened to kill a child's pet, became the biggest fear of a child whose parents had been tourchered and didn’t remember him anymore, and messes a man who finally felt at home and got rid of him. Severus Snape is not a good person and Harry really needs to rename his child.

I don't know a lot about papers but for examples, the sentence that says "Then after Lily died, he stepped over James dead body and left her traumatized son in his crib and just clutched Lily’s dead body."

The word JAMES should have an apostrophe.


"Severus Snape is not a good person and Harry really needs to rename his child. "

Instead of saying good try something like "pleasurable" or "delightful"

The correct answer is D. Using AND between the search terms.
