Ling 101 Chapter 15 Homework 4. Closings: It was nice seeing you. We should do this again sometime. I really should be going, I have a class now. Particularly effective closings provided some pretext or reasonable excuse for ending the conversation (for example, a commitment, such as “I have a class now” or “I have to get going.”). Other effective closings offered a compliment or positive message to the other person (“It was nice seeing you”). This was more effective than simply stating a desire to leave because it indicated respect and reciprocity in the interaction rather than making the other person feel as if they were being dismissed (as might be construed by the last example, in the list above, depending on the tone). 5. a. In an article in Time magazine, the euphemism “ incident ” was used in place of a more precise and direct term such as “crisis” or “disaster” to describe a roadside bombing of Marines in Haditha in Iraq. Ostensibly the euphemism was used so as not to stir up panic and hysteria in the American citizens reading about the event.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
