Project #47278 - 5 page assignment

  1. Read the article attached below titled "You Are What You Speak."
  2. Using the various examples (Whorf, Bali boy, Chinese/Native American/French/German/Matses languages, Guugu Yimithirr) as evidence from "You Are What You Speak,” agree or disagree with the writer, Guy Deutscher, who claims that our mother tongue is NOT "a 'prison house' that constrain[s] our capacity to reason."  
  3. Use a library/academic database. Search the various examples listed above (Whorf, Bali boy, et al) for more information about them, and follow other leads to help you find further evidence that augments your thesis.
  4. Essay itself should be a minimum of 4.5 pages long. It will have an intro, body paragraphs, and a conclusion.  The intro must introduce your topic, give a brief background, and give a thesis stating your position on the subject.  The body paragraphs should each open with a transition and/or a topic sentence.  They will contain quotations from the article and from your online sources. 
  5. Stylistically, your conclusion may be a synthesis of your earlier points into a final revelation; it may offer a final, coup de grace argument; it may challenge the reader; it may answer a question raised in the intro; it may ponder the future of this issue; it may contain your personal opinion about the issue, and why that opinion is relevant.  You're real writers now--you've learned the art of rhetoric, and now you are free to exercise your intelligence as you see fit.
  6. At end of essay will be "Works Cited," which will include your references--not only the article
