To feel the sea breeze in my hair,
To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

B. Colon or semicolon: not, a semicolon would divide the whole sentence and it would be shorten; a colon would work but after requested, when there is already a comma.

C. Question mark or Exclamation Point Outside Rule: would not work, becase it is an very polite and affirmative sentence.

D: A comma or period inside rule: actually, just a comma would work. Please, Cooper’s dad requested, go… Cooper’s dad requested must be in between commas as it is a vocative.

What is it called when a poet directly addresses a person or thing that cannot respond? A. personification B. metaphor C. apostrophe D. assonance Please select the best answer from the choices provided A B C D


Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

BEST ANSWER GETS BRANLIEST AND FIVE STARS No roving foot shall crush thee here, No busy hand provoke a tear. What type of figurative language does Freneau employ in these lines from “The Wild Honeysuckle”? metaphor onomatopoeia paradox personification


The correct answer is A. Gerund; object of a preposition

Explanation:

In grammar, a gerund refers to a word formed by adding “-ing” to a verb, for example, the words playing, living and looking are considered as gerunds. Additionally, this gerunds can become part of phrases and create verbal gerund phrases by adding words that describe the gerund in a more detailed way. In the case of the section of the sentence that is on parenthesis or underlined “By looking through the telescope” the gerund is the word “looking” and the verbal gerund phrase is “looking through the telescope”. On the other hand, these type of phrases can work or function as adjectives, direct object, subject and others in sentences. In the case of the phrase “looking through the telescope” it functions mainly as an object of a preposition which means the phrase is preceded by the preposition which “by” and therefore the phrase becomes the object of it.

Thus, the type of verbal phrase, in this case, is gerund because the phrase contains a gerund “looking” that makes it a gerund phrase and its function is the object of a preposition as the phrase is introduced by the preposition “by” which means the phrase is the object of it.

Answer: C. As I pleaded my case, I imagined the blue haze that hung over the mountains, the breathtaking overlooks, and the smell of the pine-scented air.

Sensory language is that which intends to create images by appealing to our five senses. In this case, option A and B use sensory language. However, they do not use it in order to describe the setting. Option D, on the other hand, does address the setting, but does not use sensory language. Finally, Option C describes “the breathtaking looks” and “the smell of the pine-scented air” of Tennessee. This option describes the setting while using sensory language.

A counterclaim, in my own words, is a rebuttle to any comments one might have against your Claim and one of it’s reasons.

So! in order to fit this into your dilemma, you’re going to want to ask yourself
“What might someone have to say against my reason? (Pick one)” 

Then you should start the draft of your counter off by putting *If my readers where to question with “well what if___?” then i’d simply give them a reason / solution like—[COUNTER CLAIM]*

Now, onto my ideas for a good counter / rebuttle..

If they we’re to question your claim… (your choice!) …
along the lines of; why stop the use of pesticides? They prevent produce waste. Simply put: “Remember the ultimate goal of having a honey bee farm, to harvest honey, not to kill off pests with detrimental pesticides.
So if investment into pesticides is so important to the extent of having to use such risky methods. Why not invest in a more beneficial method? Such as sheltering the bee’s with an insect proof structure? Or do away with the whole idea of outdoor honey farms, and make a systematic facility with flowers, bees, sunlight, etc.”

Just did that by simply asking myself those questions above, you got this.
And you have my permission to use this work if need be, but you’ve made it this far. Like you said & im sure of it as well after reading your work; you can finish this on your own. GL
