...the Harry Potter world that my mother began taking me to academic conferences focused on the books. Beginning with The Witching Hour in 2005, through Lumos, Prophecy, Portus, and Azkatrz in 2009, I have attended presentations about the Latin etymology of terms and spells, the mythical tales of the artifacts, and the idea of literary alchemy. These books opened my eyes to the whole world, and to knowledge itself. They were the stimulus that kept my brain working over the summers. More importantly, they helped me adopt the philosophy useful in school and beyond, that there is always another way to do something, or to perceive an issue. With uncertainty and doubt, comes innovation and new ways to look at problems that may result in new, different, faster and easier solutions. And all this came from a little “magic,” from a book that many people see as a series for children. Along with fans and students from many countries, I attended lectures about Ms. Rowling’s ability to beautifully craft the saga, with every painstakingly small detail connected to something else. For example, Dr. John Granger, a “Potter Pundit” who has written several critical and religious-based analyses of the books, reminded the audience that Harry’s (and his mother Lily’s) green eyes owe a literary debt to Dante’s Beatrice. From Jonathan Swift to Chaucer to Dickens and Austin, I learned that like all great books, Rowling’s stories fostered a connection across mind, body, and soul. Although the series......

Book Review of Word on the Street: Debunking the Myth of a “Pure” Standard English

...LIN 307.01 Word on the Street: Debunking the Myth of a “Pure” Standard English In Word on the Street: Debunking the Myth of a “Pure” Standard English, John McWhorter does just that. He aims to help the public understand those ideas that until now have only been studied by linguists so that their distorted perception of language may be altered. He divides the book into three main sections, going from a general description of basic principles, to specific examples of how these principles apply to everyday language, with an introduction that paints a clear picture of why this book is an important read. With slyly injected humor, McWhorter is able to take difficult linguistic concepts and present them in a way that provides a delightful read for all audiences. Part one centers on one specific idea: that language change is not decay. McWhorter spends many pages trying to convince the reader that changes in language are natural and an expected part of the history of every language in the world. He uses specific examples from English so that even someone with no background in linguistics can understand the points he is trying to get across. He delves a little bit into history to show how and why different dialects arise, and why there is no such thing as a “bad grammar.” McWhorter then goes on to explain how languages mix together and how this also brings about change. He tries to illustrate how modern Standard English came to be what it is from a mixture of many languages......

Introduction to the Verbal Reasoning Measure This document describes the types of questions contained in the Verbal Reasoning sections, gives you strategies for answering them, and presents some worked examples. Purpose and Format of the Verbal Reasoning Section The Verbal Reasoning section of the GRE measures your ability to analyze and evaluate written material and synthesize information obtained from it, to analyze relationships among component parts of sentences, and to recognize relationships among words and concepts. Verbal Reasoning questions appear in several formats, each of which is discussed in detail below. About half of the section requires you to read passages and answer questions on those passages. The other half requires you to read, interpret, and complete existing sentences, groups of sentences, -1- or paragraphs.

Gre Method

...to Earn a High GRE Score The following is a guide to scoring high on the GRE test. If you follow these steps, your GRE score will improve. 1. Relax: Preparing for the GRE can be stressful. Try to focus on the task at hand and not so much on everything else you have to do. If you take GRE test prep step-by-step, day-by-day, and give yourself breaks when your body needs them, you'll be able to concentrate on GRE studies a lot better. 2. GRE Diagnostic Test: Begin GRE test prep with a GRE practice test to find out what you're good at, and more importantly, what you're not good at. Correct your completed practice test and evaluate the questions you missed. What kind of questions did you miss? Are they mostly Quantitative or mostly Verbal? What score would you give yourself on Analytical Writing? Did you miss a lot of analogies but do well on reading comprehension? With this information you'll be able to focus your GRE test prep studies on your weaknesses. 3. GRE Study Plan: With your GRE weaknesses in mind, make a very specific study plan for yourself. You should know what, how, and when you are going to study for the GRE test. Put your study plan somewhere in plain view, and make sure you stick to your plan. Try to keep GRE test prep interesting by planning to study different things in different ways. For example, study GRE vocabulary from flash cards one day, from a list the second day, and by reading and learning words in context the third day. 4. GRE......
