Around this time Afro-Eurasia became overwhelmed with drought which caused people to migrate from older communities to the new and recent empires such as the Neo-Assyrian, Persian, and the Zhou. Technological changes allowed communities to structure themselves, especially the communities devastated by the drought. Pack Camels, seaworthy vessels and iron tools for cultivation facilitated the rise of these empires. The final development driving change during this time were innovations in military and administrative control. For example, the Neo-Assyrian Empire made subject peoples send tribute in the form of grains, animals, raw materials, gold and lapis lazuli. They used this to build imperial cities and to enrich the royal treasuries.

From prior knowledge of language and culture relations, I fully recognized that it has simply always been understood that the culture of each human being influences his or her own language.

    “What the Mirror Said” by Lucille Clifton (page 202) narrates a girl convincing herself of her own worth. The repeated line, “listen,” indicates that she’s pleading with herself. The final line, “mister with his hands on you / he got his hands on some / damn / body!” concludes that this woman feels like she’s special and complex, and not “anonymous.” The only rhythmic quality is that refrain, but there is a unique poetic style to it in the way language is used. The grammar isn’t formal, it’s…
