Read the excerpt from “mother tongue.” lately, ive been giving more thought to the kind of english my mother speaks. like others, i have described it to people as broken or fractured english. but i wince when i say that. it has always bothered me that i can think of no other way to describe it other than broken, as if it were damaged and needed to be fixed, as if it lacked a certain wholeness and soundness. what best supports the inference that tan believes nonstandard english is no less valid than standard english? tan spends a lot of time thinking about her mothers fractured english. tan has trouble thinking of descriptive words when she is writing. tans american education makes it difficult for her to understand her mother. tan winces when she describes her mothers english as broken.

[ad_1]

Answer :

The following option best supports the inference that tan believes nonstandard English is no less valid than standard English :

Tan winces when she describes her mothers English as broken.

Tan winces because she considers her mother’s nonstandard English as her mother tongue. It is perfectly clear and natural to her. It is full of vivid descriptions, clear observations and imagery. Nonstandard English is close to her heart because it is the language that helped her to make sense of the world.

[ad_1]

Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 05:29 AM

He would claim that it was proof of superiority. Social Darwinism is an idea that people or countries who succeed in life and who become rich did so because they could adapt to the environment and that those who are poor are inferior to them because they couldn’t. In country leading, the idea is that the countries that became wealthy were superior and thus easily became rich while poor countries are inferior in their opinions.

There are many refranes in Spanish with similar or nearly identical translations in English.

[ad_1]

You can stay connected to Spanish and its culture in the future by continuing to take Spanish classes, listen to Spanish music, cook Spanish recipes, or downloading the Duolingo app to further learn the language.

Learning the Spanish language makes you look diverse academically, you can cover your college language credits if you take enough in high school, too. Personally, you are helping your brain to grow and connect regions of your brain by learning and figuring out the language that can’t otherwise be connected except by learning a language. Socially, you can connect and talk to people in Spanish, professionally you may be the chosen hire and be paid double if you know a language such as Spanish. These are a few examples, I hope they help!!

Well; You have the classics

1984, you might have been asked to read this one already in school, if not I suggest going ahead and reading it; its fun to be ahead of your class. 

Originally published in 1949 by George Orwell, 1984 depicts a dystopian world of the ‘future’. The book is less of a prediction more then it is a warning of what could be. It follows one character who is desperately trying to remember what real life is like, and gets tangled up in all sorts of messes along the way.

You could read Alice in Wonderland or Mary Poppins, theres a million great classics out there Im sure you can find on any website. 

Personally I prefer fantasy novels; 

Brandon Sanderson’s The Rithmatist 
This book follows a young student through a steampunk style, magic infused world. It takes a moment to not chuckle at the concept of monsters that are essentially drawings, but its a very well done book with beautiful writing and mental scenery 

Patrick Rothfuss’s, The Name of the Wind 
This is my favorite book of all time. Patrick Rothfuss’s work is honestly amazing in this book. Mind you its probably not all that wise for the feint of heart through perhaps the second chapter; but it really is amazing. The sculpting of the world, the depth of the characters its utterly masterful. The story opens with Kote, a fairly normal seeming innkeeper and his dark haired companion Bast. Fairly normal until a man happens upon the inn, looking for a certain Kvothe, a man thought to just be a legend and a story… and Kote’s past is drug up, and other things that should probably be better left alone.

Which pair of statements best compares the roles of Martin Luther and John Calvin in the Reformation? A)Martin Luther’s criticisms of the Catholic Church sparked the Reformation; John Calvin created a new denomination that promoted good works. B)John Calvin’s criticisms of the Catholic Church sparked the Reformation; Martin Luther created a new denomination that promoted good works. C)Martin Luther broke from the Catholic Church over an annulment; John Calvin translated the Bible into English and started the Church of England. D)John Calvin broke from the Catholic Church over an annulment; Martin Luther translated the Bible into English and started the Church of England.

[ad_1]

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner. 

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony. 

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world. 

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too. 

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way. 

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again. 

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it. 

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies. 

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists. 

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out. 

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

Karl Marx developed the economic theory of communism.

Further Explanation:

One of Karl Marx’s most famous contributions came in his book the Communist Manifesto. This book explained Mark’s views on government, the economy, and ultimately lead to the creation of communism as an idea.

A communism system is one that is economic and political in nature. In this system, the government would control the means of production, the distribution of goods and resources, and would overall have significant control over society. This system of communism is the opposite of the capitalist/democratic system used in America today. These two ideologies would clash during the mid 20th century in what is now known as the Cold War.

Marx’s ideas were based on his observations of the world around him. He felt that the mistreatment of labor by industry and private corporations would ultimately lead to an uprising by angry laborers all over the world.

The correct answer is – alms.

The alms is the pillar that is referring to giving to the poor and needy. It is practiced by lots of Muslims, and it is considered as an act of solidarity towards the followers of the faith that are in dire need of it. This includes giving money, food, and clothing, though occasionally it may even include shelter. It can be performed in person when some people go to the people that they want to give something as aid, to invite some person in need or that is poor at their homes, or it goes as donations in the mosques which afterwards take the responsibility to deliver them to the poor and in need.

Fairly normal until a man happens upon the inn, looking for a certain Kvothe, a man thought to just be a legend and a story… and Kote’s past is drug up, and other things that should probably be better left alone.
