Topic: The Catholic University of America: Climate Change
Assignment 5: Definition Due: 10/26
Using a complex word that is central to your argument—for example, “womanhood,” in the article about Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner—define the term in your own words without the help of a dictionary. Then, compare your definition to the ones found in the Oxford English Dictionary (go to libraries.cua.edu, click the “Databases” tab, and type in OED in the search bar. It’s the second entry). What are significant problems or potential misunderstandings with your definition? With the OED’s?
Combine the best parts of each definition (yours and the OED’s) and write an improved definition—one that aims to overcome the flaws in the original definitions. What makes your super-definition so super? Despite its super-status, does it have any residual shortcomings, such as areas that could still be misunderstood or hypothetical situations where your definition might not hold up?
Using Parts One and Two as evidence (at least for your initial conclusion), what are some benefits and drawbacks of definitions? What are its problems and uses?
- Support with evidence.
- Challenge your conclusion.
- Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.
Grammar/Style: In your essay, highlight in bold one example of each of the following literary techniques:
- Varying sentence length. Look back over the Jenner article and note places where Burkett writes long sentences followed by short ones and vice versa.
- Parallelism. We looked at a number of places where Burkett used parallelism well. Imitate her techniques here.
