An Analysis of Neutral Tones by Thomas Hardy - An Analysis of Neutral Tones by Thomas Hardy      "We stood by a pond that winter day," (1) This line indicates a still quietness, with lack of the movement of life. There is a vast difference in appearance and movement around a pond in winter and a pond in the midst of summer. This indicates no leaves, and no visible signs of life. The poet is painting a stark and lifeless scene. "And the sun was white, as though chidden of God,"(2) This is indicative of the modernist approach to light as being too harsh and not a positive factor....   [tags: Neutral Tones Essays]

Gender-Neutral English Language - Gender-Neutral English Language The English language has evolved through history in a male-centered, patriarchal society. The male orientation of English carries two complementary implications: being male is normative and natural; and therefore, not being male is abnormal and unnatural. The shifting of our language from masculine to gender-neutral may be awkward at first, and our children may wonder what all the fuss was about. The English language is always changing and the future will hold a gender-neutral language....   [tags: Papers] 2950 words

Gender Neutral Society - Gender Neutral Society New style manuals imposed on students today in English classes across the globe tell them to avoid generic "he" and rewrite their sentences in other ways. A great lesson and a leap forward in removing the very roots of our self-made patriachical society. The English language is changing whether we like it or not, and generic 'he-him-his' may not even exist in 5 or 10 more years.

Compare Aurora Leigh and Neutral Tones - Compare Aurora Leigh and Neutral Tones      The frenzied growth and progress of the Victorian Era had worked itself into a ferment at the birth of the Modern Age. Whereas the Victorian authors and poets seemed to attempt to hold onto themes of the Romantics, emulation of the Classical Age and the application of epic format, the Modernists used more conversational language, but similarly to Romantics, turned to introspection as an inspirational source. However, most striking, is the change of mood of the literature from that of optimism and expansion of the 19th century, to that of early 20th century's "pessimism, sadness, and gravity" (Agatucci, 2001)....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Even though the general theme, the loss of love, is the same, many features such as tone, imagery, language and rhyme scheme differ from each other. Hardy emphasises more on his feelings towards his break up.

A Risk Neutral Framework For The Pricing Of Credit Derivatives - A Risk Neutral Framework For The Pricing Of Credit Derivatives 1. INTRODUCTION Considerable research effort has gone into Credit Derivatives since the early 1990’s. The roots of credit derivatives can be traced back to the notion that the credit risk of a firm can be captured by the credit rating ascribed to it. This premise is also the cornerstone of loan pricing and credit risk management models the world over, including J.P. Morgan’s CreditMetricsTM.

Neural Interfacing - Neural Interfacing In the motion picture “RoboCop” scientists during a future time implanted a human head into the body of a futuristic robot creating an almost unstoppable police officer. During 1987, when this movie was produced, the idea of man combining with machine was considered pure fantasy. However, advances in technology in the year 2000 and further studies in recent years have proven that this idea may, in time, become a reality. On October 13th 2003, sciencedaily.com in their article, Monkeys Consciously Control A Robot Arm Using Only Brain Signals, reported that researchers of Duke University had successfully taught a monkey to manipulate a robotic arm using only her brain signals and a video display.[1] Though the theory behind the idea of somehow connecting human tissue to electronic devices is relatively simple, the processes needed to create the experiment are very complex....   [tags: essays papers]

The Importance of Color - ... Once again, we see what dominance color holds in our everyday life. We use colors to describe many things from moods to plants. Through our culture is how we decide these associations and connotations. When it comes to neutrals Stephanie Hoppen is a pro, she tell us, “Although I love the sense of calm that a pale and neutral can evoke, I have for a long time believed that in every color there are many shades, and quite a substantial portion of these shades are neutral. And in describing these colors as neutral, I mean that they go with most if not all colors extremely well” (Hoppen 6)....   [tags: Art]

The Cause of An Insignificant War: War of 1812 - The War of 1812 was one of the most insignificant wars in U.S. history which despite its failure to accomplish its strategic goals, the country showed the world that the U.S., military could stand up to the British on land. Bradford Perkins presented a short but brilliant account on the root cause of the war, by offering two thesis’s to support the claim that the land hunger, the loss of commerce, and national honor were the main causes. Right from the start Perkins argued that the war of 1812 was the product of resentment at various British actions which challenged American sovereignty on sea, and on land....   [tags: War of 1812, USA, history,] 2483 words

An Analysis of Nagel's Personal Rights and Public Spaces - ... Thus, Nagel distinguishes between agent-neutral and agent-relative values to attempt at explaining the paradox. An agent-neutral value is consequentialist in form: if x is bad or wrong then it implies that we all work together toward a common goal to reduce or minimize x. In this case, it means that it is permissible to commit x to anyone if that contributes to the common goal of reducing x. On the other hand, an agent-relative value is deontological in its form: if x is bad or wrong then what is implied is that the agent himself is not permitted to commit x to anyone, although it doesn’t govern whether x occurs to someone because of what other people do....   [tags: Ethics ]

Scientist - Scientists and the products of their work are far from ‘neutral.’ Rather than embodying neutrality, scientists are inextricably connected to the existing distribution of interests and power. White, male scientists over the centuries have attempted to use science as a medium for all their findings, which inevitably support their personal beliefs. In my experience, scientists are extremely intelligent, but particularly one-sided. Hearing the words ‘scientist’ and ‘neutral’ in the same sentence disturbs me--after all, scientists have tried to ‘prove’ an unlimited amount of times that blacks are innately less intelligent then whites, and that women are innately weaker and possess less natural ability in math and science than men do ....   [tags: essays research papers] 656 words

As noted above the debate surrounding gender-neutral language centres on two distinct issues, these being the use of feminine forms for deity and the replacing of masculine forms such as the `generic he, his, him and man' or `father, son and brother' with gender-neutral forms in both liturgy and the Biblical text....   [tags: World History] 2126 words
