In these present times, English language is known as the universal language due to its importance. Furthermore, the study of English not only in the world but also in Vietnam is more accessible. When learning English, Vietnamese learners will have difficulty in acquiring grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation. Personal Pronouns, in particular, can be considered as the easiest and the most basic grammar point at the first stage of learning English, but learners cannot avoid making mistakes when translating them into another language, particularly Vietnamese. Therefore, I would like to present a contrastive analysis of personal pronouns between English and Vietnamese.

Sandra believes that our society is set up to believe the more masculine a person is the less feminine a person is and vice versa. Bem believes that leads to us teaching our society to produce very unbalanced people. Bem thinks that masculine and feminine exist are their own scale and to be a truly balanced person someone would want to have a high amount of both sets of qualities. This is why Bem created a way of…
intimacy. Poem Eleven depicts an informative lesson learned by a nameless woman while she experiences life with a man that deems her ‘difficult’ to love. The scenario is complimented as a narrator’s recollective perspective illuminates the ambiguous motif representing the dramatized conflict between the act of diluting self identity rather than harnessing the power embedded within feminine individuality. The poem opens with the use of the second person pronoun ‘you.’ This initial word choice…
This too, was something I never really thought about before that night but it a very important topic. We were asked to go around in a circle to say both our name and the pronoun we prefer. Most individuals used gender-neutral pronouns such as they, their, them. In the lecture Queer we discussed in class, Professor Riley stated, “The inner sense we have about being male or female, some of us have discordance between our bodies and that inner sense” (11/2). Who says you have to be one gender or…
They are both allomorphs of the morpheme ‘a’. The SLI child repeatedly says ‘a elephant’ and ‘a egg’, using the incorrect form. The reason I believe this is an effect of SLI is because the child with normal language is able to use the correct allomorph when needed, for example he says ‘an easy one to make’. With the examples provided it clearly shows that there is a significant developmental difference between children with and without SLI.
According to Brown (1973) children go through five…

The truth can be a hard thing to come by when you are dealing with any type of person. In “Theme for English B,” by Langston Hughes, the topic of truth is what lays the foundation down for his poem. Hughes is most likely the speaker in this poem giving the view of an entire group, which would be the colored student population. The poem starts off by sharing an assignment the instructor gave the speaker for their class. The instructor informs the class that if they let their literary work…
Words can be very manipulative and persuasive, if used right, they can be used to get people to feel different emotions and make people do things. But also, they can be used to make people do things that they might not have ever done without hearing that speaker say what they said to them. Rhetorical and literary devices are included when people are trying to persuade and manipulate people to more effectively change peoples minds. In certain situations, this can lead to really bad endings and…
