Heath the reader. “ Her long blonde hair gave her chiseled features the simple frame they required” and “Her stringy bleached hair accentuated her harsh features” In the first one they writer wants to paint a picture in our heads of this beautiful blonde girl who has a very chiseled and simply pretty face. While the second one suggests that her hair is gross and she is not a very pretty girl. In both paragraphs there is a sentence that is almost the exact same sentence but the only difference is by two words. “She smile as engaging smile as she accepted a cigarette from her escort.” Then the second one reads, “She smiled an insane smile as she took a cigarette from her escort.” Engaging and insane say two completely different things about the girls appearances. While accepted and took suggests that the girl in the first paragraph is polite while the other is almost rude. Its important for writers and others to be aware of charged words, because you want to deliver the right response from your reader. Using charged language unknowingly can cause unintentional pursuation. The whole point of using charged words to get the reader to think a certin way about something to if you do this unknowingly it could cause some biased issues. Some difficulties of living in a world with charge language are its use in “dishonest proganda.” It can also cause misunderstandings or even cause people to take things the wrong way.

    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.
