Hello,


Can you please help with English Semantics. This discussion board's With the topic of gun control? Attached you will find complete instructions on the assignment.

Things to Do. This discussion board's purpose is to give you practice for what I expect from your essay (particularly paragraphs 3, 4, 5) and to show you different view points Read through the 3 questions below and consider how you would answer them for the topic of Gun Control. Your discussion post should answer questions 1 and 2 completely, while addressing only 3 or 4 concepts from question 3. With the topic of gun control, answer the following questions as comprehensively as you can 1. Phrase this issue as a two-valued argument. Then describe what each position believes. Our goal here is to describe, not to offer judgments on those positions or personally argue for a position. (Remember Hayakawa tells us in chapter 3 that judgments stop thought). http://www.rijnlandmodel.nl/achtergrond/algemene_semantiek/hayakawa/ch03_judgements_tho ught.htm 2. What different definitions are embedded in this argument? For example, is the argument about different definitions of "safety?" Does each side have different beliefs about what the role of the government should be? How so? 3. Discuss how any of the following course concepts factor into the two-valued argument. You might consider: http://www.rijnlandmodel.nl/achtergrond/algemene_semantiek/hayakawa/ch13_two- valued_logic.htm Concepts from question 3 How does power factor into the argument? What role do intensional and extensional orientations play? http://www.rijnlandmodel.nl/achtergrond/algemene_semantiek/hayakawa/ch04_extension al-intensional-meaning.htm Is this a two-valued argument that should be multi-valued? How does the language of one or both sides slant the position of their opponents? Are there "purr" and "snarl" words regularly associated with either side's positions? What do these reveal about the arguments themselves? How do abstraction or indexing factor into the argument? What inferences are being made? What role does report language play?
