    Throughout Homer’s Odyssey and Morrison’s Home, the different societies have their own ways of working together as a community. Even though the communities have similarities, there are many ways in which they are actually different. The major difference between the communities within the two stories is the way in which both of them are able to express their sense of unity in their societies.

    INTRODUCTION Language samples of children are helpful to see what stage they are at in their language development. By looking at different aspects of their normal speech you can get a pretty clear picture of where the child is at.

They are playing with some of her toys in a good environment. I feel that this is a good language sample because it is in an…

    In class on Wednesday, we went further with our discussion on language. We talked about how different languages have different rules and what these rules mean to the language as a whole. I am currently taking Spanish for the first time ever (I took sign language in high school for my language requirement) and of course in that class we are learning about the different rules and so on. On Wednesday morning, my professor asked a student who goes to North Central who is from Nicaragua to come talk…

Scents will merely give someone a pleasant fragrance or a horrid odor. In a synesthete’s world—that is, someone diagnosed with synesthesia—these interpretations tend to skew. The first notable case was published by Georg Sachs in 1812, based on the elucidation of himself (Jewanski, Jay, & Ward, 2009). SYMPTOMS As mentioned…
