Davis So LIN 306 1/25/10 Homework Assignment 2 2. a. Word Comparison 1. Liberty and Freedom are similar in that they both signify “rights” in democratic states. However, the words differ in that freedom means, “a state of being ‘free’” and liberty is more defined in “autonomy” or “independence.” Liberty is similar in the sense that there is a certain degree of freedom; however, it is more a right rather than a state of being like freedom. 2. Parrot is similar to a Canary in that they are both a certain type of animal: a bird, but they are a different kind or species of bird. 3. Abroad and overseas are similar because of the connotative use of describing distance and sometimes are used interchangeably in society.
