Differences between spoken and written Finnish? Puhekieli vs kirjakieli explained through examples!
Hello People! [TO SKIP THE INTRO GO TO 2:44 - PLEASE READ THE FIRST COMMENT FOR CORRECTIONS!] In this video I offer some better examples (than I did in my previous Finnish video) concerning the differences between colloquial / spoken Finnish, or "puhekieli" on one hand, and formal / written Finnish, or "kirjakieli", on the other. Please note that this does NOT mean that everybody will ALWAYS speak that way, because there are regional differences and there's also a personal component to many of the forms featured in the video, but let's just say that if you actually talk with Finnish people in daily-life situations, you're going to hear such forms get used quite often. I hope you enjoy, and if you're learning Finnish I hope you can take away something useful! See you guys in the next one! PS: I did edit out A LOT of coughing xD

It's much easier to learn fusha - there are more books on it and most newspapers and radio stations broadcast in formal Arabic. In this video we look at a short clip which contains both slang gulf dialect Arabic and formal spoken Arabic spoken by the narrator. I made this video to help highlight or introduce you to the differences between the sounds of the two styles of speaking. Hope you find it interesting - please leave me a comment and like if you did!

√ Essay Style Essay Writing | English
#iitutor #English #EssayWriting https://www.iitutor.com/ Essay style means the way you write an essay. The way you use language in an essay is different from how you write in other tasks. In this lesson, we will go through what you write and how you write in an essay. Formal language means that you use ‘proper English’. This means: Grammar is always correct, Do not use contractions, No expressions or colloquial language. You need to change what you write to make it look like it is not your opinion. For Example: Before: I think it is important that we stop the horrible violence in schools. After: Violence needs to be stopped in Australian schools. An essay needs to be very clear and easy for someone to understand it. You need to: 1. Get rid of adjectives. (e.g. this amazing machine). 2. Use specifics: Specifics mean that you point right at what it is you are trying to say. (e.g. something happens → the gears make it move). Every paragraph of an essay should carry on with the same point you started that paragraph with. This means you stay on topic. e.g. Turtles are creatures that live under the sea. Dogs live on the land. Turtles may go from the sea onto the land to lay their eggs. They live in mostly shallow water… Good essays use many complex sentences. This means they have two or more parts. They must have a main idea, and a detail(s) which support it. Essay Style Checklist: correct grammar, no contractions, no colloquial language, no I, you, or we, no feelings or comments, no adjectives, be specific, be on topic , use complex sentences.

ENGLISH SLANG – 15 trendy fashion words
Learn new vocabulary about beauty and fashion. Just like fashion trends, the words we use in English to talk about makeup, clothing, hair, and style, change quickly. The words that are used today are not the same as five years ago. There is a whole world of beauty vloggers and fashion hauls on YouTube. If you’re into fashion, you’ll want to look en point when wearing items from your most recent haul. If makeup is your thing, you’ll be wearing a red lip or using a palette to get a smoky eye. You’ll be sporting balayage or ombre hair (don’t worry -- I’ll teach you how to pronounce those new French-origin words too!). Watch and never forget the boyfriends of Instagram. Then take the quiz at https://www.engvid.com/english-slang-15-trendy-fashion-words/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, everyone. In this lesson we're going to look at trendy fashion words. These are words that I'm hearing used a lot now around our times, so let's have a look through the words and learn them one-by-one so we can sound really cool and fashionable. Let's start with: "en pointe". If something is en pointe, it means perfect, it looks so good. What you're wearing today, that dress, your dress is en pointe. It's so fashionable, it's so, so hot right now. Very similar meaning to something being "on-trend". If we think about the word "trendy", it means fashionable. But to say something is trendy isn't fashionable enough anymore, we have to change it and say: "on-trend". We could also change it and say: "bang-on-trend". If it's bang-on-trend, it's even more now, happening right this minute. Next, if we're talking about makeup... When I was younger we used to talk about wearing lipstick or wearing red lipstick, or a pink lipstick, but now instead of saying the word "lipstick", it's described as: "I'm wearing a red lip today." And the same thing, instead of saying: "eye shadow", "Oh, I bought this eye shadow. It's blue. Look at it on my eyes", you don't say that because it doesn't... Doesn't sound... Doesn't sound fashionable enough, it doesn't sound like you know about makeup. So, what people who know about makeup say is they say: "Oh, today I'm wearing a smokey eye." I'm not wearing a smokey eye, I haven't got anything on, but a smokey eye is when the eye shadow looks grey or dark, and it's most often worn at night when you're going out. You get your eye shadow these days in "palettes". And instead of wearing just one eye shadow, like, wearing a pink eye shadow, the eye shadow palette comes with about... Well, as many as you want I suppose, but from 4 to 12 eye shadows, and what they do is they put on the different eye shadows from the palette. So, they will talk about creating the smokey eye from palette number three, or whatever. Next is a makeup term that's been around for a few years. This makeup term came from when the Kardashians got famous because the kind of makeup Kim Kardashian would use was a kind of makeup that shades her face to give it a certain... To make it look like there's more shadow on the face and a more dramatic kind of foundation, which is done with different brushes. It's a kind of makeup technique called "contouring". Apparently it comes... Apparently it's a makeup technique that's been around for ages, but before, drag queens used to use it, men who... Men who were still men, but dressed up as women mostly for performance and being in shows and things like that. So it originally comes from there. And I did experiment with contouring. I once watched a few too many YouTube videos, and it all went terribly wrong, so moving on from contouring. Next we have "drugstore makeup". In England we don't have drugstores, we have pharmacies where you go and buy your medicine, and you can buy toiletries, but we don't have drugstores. We have chains of drugstores, for example, Boots or Superdrug, and you can go in there and buy makeup, but we never call those places drugstores. Yet, when people talk about makeup now, the younger generation, they will... They will talk about buying drugstore makeup, which means the kind of makeup that only... Only costs you a few pounds to buy, it's not the really, really expensive makeup, and you can... You can buy it easily, close... Close... Close where you live. So, drugstore makeup is the kind of makeup you can do that doesn't cost you so much money as the really expensive brands. So that's an American term, but it's being used a lot here now in England. The next... The next two terms are about hair. These are newer fashionable techniques for dying your hair, and the two words come from French. In the English pronunciation we'd say: "balayage".
√ Practising the Essay Style | Essay Writing | English
#iitutor #English #EssayWriting https://www.iitutor.com/ Like all things, the more you practise your essay writing, the easier it gets. In this lesson, we are going to look at a sample of writing and change it into an essay style. How to Get the Essay Style Right. Now, we are going to practise writing in an essay style. In the first lesson, we looked at an example question: ‘Are pigs able to fly?’ Here is another answer to that question. I think that pigs are too stupid to fly because they don’t really have any way of being able to fly. Like, all they do is sit in mud and mess around all day and get fat and it’s because they’re so fat they can’t fly. Let’s go step-by-step to re-write it an essay style. Step One: First, let us get rid of all the contractions that are in this answer. I think that pigs are too stupid to fly because they do not really have any way of being able to fly. Like, all they do is sit in mud and mess around all day and get fat and it is because they are so fat they cannot fly. Step Two: Then, we get rid of all the colloquial language and expressions that are in this essay. I think that pigs are too stupid to fly because they do not really have any way of being able to fly. All they do is sit in mud in leisure all day and get fat and it is because they are so fat they cannot fly. Step Three: Now we can rid of feelings and comments. We will also get rid of ‘I’. Pigs cannot fly because they do not really have any way of being able to fly. They are fat and it is because they are so fat they cannot fly. Step Four: Now, we can start to be specific. That means we can add extra information and make our point better. Pigs cannot fly because they do not have wings. They are fat and it is because they are so fat they cannot fly. Step Five: Finally, we must try to keep our answer on topic. Pigs cannot fly because they do not have wings. Without wings, they are unable to fly like birds can.

Real English Conversation & Fluency Training - Music & Movement - Master English Conversation 2.0
http://www.englishanyone.com/speak-fluent-english-confidently-in-6-months-EA5/ Start expressing yourself clearly and confidently in English today with our complete 6 month fluency training video course! :) Welcome to REAL English conversation! No scripts. No actors. Just watch, understand and practice speaking the natural, English Anyone way. Keep reading to learn more about how you can become a great speaker... Even after years of studying, are you disappointed with your English level? Can you read and write English well, but still not speak confidently? Do you have trouble thinking of the right words to use in conversations? Are you nervous, self-conscious and afraid around native speakers? Is it hard for you to understand the idioms, slang and expressions they use? Do you worry that you'll make mistakes, or that you won't be able to respond to native speakers in conversations? Imagine what your life would be like if you could: Communicate powerfully and confidently in English, on the phone and in person, without hesitation... Feel EXCITED when talking with native speakers, instead of shy, embarrassed and fearful... Express the REAL YOU, and demonstrate your value and skills in English, without translating... Sound like a native English speaker with clear and smooth pronunciation... Understand different English accents, and use slang, idioms and real English expressions... Speak grammatically correct English without having to think of confusing grammar rules... Meet native English speakers to practice speaking with no matter where you live in the world... And achieve the level of English fluency you've been working so hard for (finally!!!) I understand exactly how you feel, not because I've helped thousands of learners just like you speak English confidently, but because I was a frustrated language learner too. I've lived through the same confusion and pain you're experiencing, and I'm proof that speaking success is possible. If you're ready, the unique fluency formula I uncovered on my own journey to becoming a confident speaker can become yours, and you can begin an incredible adventure that will take you from where you are to where you want to be... Here's Why You Struggle To Speak Conversational English... It's not you... Your learning methods are KILLING your spoken English fluency. First, traditional language learning methods actually STOP you from learning naturally. Because these methods usually introduce too much new information at the same time, or give you lists of grammar rules and vocabulary words to memorize, your brain can't absorb knowledge automatically. Second, traditional language learning methods don't teach you the real, conversational language of native, spoken English. Textbooks and listening practice CDs teach you the proper, grammatically correct English used for writing, NOT the idioms, slang and popular expressions found in everyday conversations, TV, music and movies. Third, typical language lessons give you unnecessary stress. Lessons pressure you to speak perfectly and fear mistakes, so you become nervous around native speakers and can't build your speaking confidence. Finally, Traditional language learning methods don't actually teach you how to meet and practice with native speakers. You may understand a grammar point in a textbook, but if you don't learn how to meet native speakers and use what you learn in conversations, you'll never become a great English speaker. In truth, getting fluent in English is really quite simple and easy. You just need to match your methods with your goals. Textbooks are fine for passing tests, but if you really want to speak excellent English powerfully, you need a system that teaches you conversational English, helps you learn automatically and then shows you how to get out and speak confidently with native speakers. If you're ready to be understood, really enjoy English conversations with native speakers and explore our world with confidence, join me, and learners just like you all over the world, on a unique English fluency video course. Master English Conversation 2.0, a complete English speaking and fluency membership program will help you learn naturally, speak confidently and get out and practice in the real world. Simple video lessons make learning fast and automatic, and you'll really feel yourself improving! http://www.englishanyone.com/speak-fluent-english-confidently-in-6-months-EA5/ Start expressing yourself clearly and confidently in English today with our complete 6 month fluency training video course! :)

How to READ FASTER: 2 tricks
Did you know that reading is one of the best ways to improve your speaking? On the other hand, many students don't enjoy reading because they believe they are too slow, and it discourages them. Some students even say they forget a sentence as soon as they've read it. If you want to improve your reading and your speaking, this video is for you. I will teach you two techniques you can use to read faster and more efficiently: grouping and pacing. If you follow the tips in this video, you can cut your reading time in half! TAKE THE QUIZ: https://www.engvid.com/how-to-read-faster-2-tricks/ WATCH NEXT: 1. How to remember anything: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfHNo9HlC8c 2. Use mind maps to understand and remember what you read: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1rwf370z5E #engvid #SpeedReading #LearnEnglish TRANSCRIPT Man, I really have to read this book and I just don't have the time. Hi. James from engVid. If you're like me, you have to read a lot of material. If you are studying English or you're learning English, you probably don't like to read, which is too bad, because reading is one of the fastest ways to improve... Well, let's go to the board and find out. As you can see, E is running very quickly, here. Right? And he's trying to read. So, we're going to learn to read faster today, and I'm going to teach you how to read faster with two different techniques, and I'm going to teach you... You'll start to enjoy your reading. So we'll go to the board and we'll talk about reading, why it's important, and what we can do about it. The first thing I want to talk about with reading: Reading helps to do a couple of things. Number one, it helps you to learn new things. When you read a book about philosophy, it teaches you about somebody's new idea or a new invention. It gives you new vocabulary. Many words... In fact, they say if you don't understand 90% of the material, you won't understand it; but even just reading something, if you have a dictionary, will help you go and learn new vocabulary to understand material, so it gives you new words; it gives you a better or a wider way to speak. It helps you to understand. Sometimes when someone says something it's a little too fast, but then when you read it, you have time to read it, go back, read it, go back, read it, and go: "I got it." Right? It gives you time to look at the picture; the mental picture or the written picture. It gives you new ideas. Remember you learn new things? Well, when you start adding idea from this book, idea from that book, you get new ideas of your own; you become more creative. Your world becomes a richer place to live. And, finally, because we're doing English, you learn how to speak a language. Like: "Stop. What do you mean? How do I learn to speak by reading?" Well, for you people who are learning to speak a language-okay?-reading shows you the structure that people use when they speak. Reading shows you new vocabulary, or it shows you what we call the colloquial; the common person's way of speaking. You get all that from reading; how to say it, where to put the verb and the noun or the adjective. Right? Cool? That's what it can do, and that's what's important to us. Our reading is going to teach us how to speak, but also it's good to be able to read in a country, because I often say: If you cannot read in a language, you're stupid. And if you wonder what I mean, think about the guy who when you give a simple sentence, like: "The cat went in the house", cannot read it and he reads it like: "The cat went in", you go: "The guy's stupid." Don't be stupid. Don't be stupid in your language; don't be stupid in my language. So today we're going to work on a process to help you with reading. Now, as much as I said all these great things about reading, there are a couple of things to be aware of, or... Actually, I don't have to tell you. You know, but I want you to know that I understand, so I'm putting it on the board so you know what I'm going to teach you will help you overcome or help you solve that problem. Problem: Reading takes a long time. Well, in your own language it takes some time, but if you're learning another language, it will always take you much longer to read because you have a problem of translating, or skipping back and translating. Translating, you know what I mean; you translate from the language you're looking at into your own language to understand it, and then translate it back to that language - that's a lot of work. And if you think about how long that takes, that's like two different trips, like: In, out; in, out; in, out for every word. That will take... Something that takes four minutes to read - make you read it for 20 minutes. And who wants to read one paragraph or five sentences, and it takes 10 minutes, and you still don't understand it? That's a problem. Another problem: You don't remember what you read. Do you remember when I said to you: "You're reading up and down"? […]

Hijab stalls in Indonesia
Colourful Hijab stalls in Sumatra, Indonesia. This shop sells burkha or veil units. Women in hijabs come and check out burkha wares, and other street-side market goodies! A Hijab is a traditional head scarf worn by Muslim women and stands for modesty, privacy, and morality. In Indonesia a Hijab is known as jilbab. According to Wikipedia, the hijab is a relatively new phenomenon in Indonesia. Even before Western influence, most Indonesian women (especially Javanese) rarely covered their hair except when praying, and even then the hair was only loosely covered by a transparent cloth. In Indonesia, the term jilbab refers to the hijab. Under Indonesian Law, female head-covering is entirely optional and not obligatory. However, male and female head-dress is a near universal Indonesian cultural and status-marking accoutrement, including areas devoutly Hindu, Protestant and even animist, which may be mistaken by the uninformed observer as the Muslim hijab. Indonesia has the largest single global population of Muslims. In daily practice, the jilbab is more of a fashion accessory and status symbol. Wealthy women use the hijab as an excuse to wear their latest prêt-à-porter designer label scarves. Some women may elect to wear a headscarf to be more "formal" or "religious", such as the jilbab or kerudung (a native tailored veil with a small, stiff visor), especially for formal or cultural events especially such where the Muslim religion may be involved -- such as official governmental events, funerals, circumcision (sunatan) ceremonies or weddings -- although wearing this "Muslim" attire to Christian relatives' funerals and weddings and entering the church is quite uncommon. Culturally to the Javanese majority, plain, Saudi-style hijab, the niqab or socially worse yet the indigenous peasant kerudung (known in North Sumatran languages as tudung) is considered vulgar, low-class and a faux pas -- the traditional Javanese hijab are transparent, sheer, intricately brocaded or embroidered fine silk or lace tailored to match either their sarung or kebaya blouse. Young females may also elect to wear the hijab publicly to avoid unwanted low-class male attention and molestation and thus display their respectability as "good Muslim girls": that is, they are not "easy" conquests. Additionally, Islamic private school uniform code dictate that female students must wear the jilbab (commonly white or blue-grey, Indonesia's national secondary school colours), in addition to long-sleeved blouse and ankle-length skirt. While Islamic schools must by law provide access to Christians (and vice-versa Catholic and Protestant schools allow Muslim students) it is worn without complaint by Christian students and its use is not objected to in Christian schools, as nuns in Indonesia also wear habits. Many nuns refer to their habit as a jilbab, perhaps out of the colloquial use of the term to refer to any religious head covering. The sole exception where jilbab is mandatory is in Aceh Province, under Islamic Sharia-based Law, granting Aceh special autonomy and through its own Regional Legislative body Regulation, as enacted per Acehnese plebiscite. This Acehnese Hukum Syariah and the reputedly over-bearing "Morality Police" who enforce its mandatory public wearing are the subject of fierce debate, especially with regards to its validity vis-a-vis the Constitution among Acehnese male and female Muslim academics, Acehnese male and female politicians and female rights advocates. Compounding the friction and often anger toward baju Arab (Arab clothes), is the ongoing physical and emotional abuse of Indonesian females in Saudi Arabia, as guest workers, commonly maids or as Hajja pilgrims and Saudi Wahhabi intolerance for non-Saudi dress code has given rise to mass protests and fierce and fiery Indonesian debate up to the highest levels of government about boycotting Saudi Arabia -- especially the profitable all Hajj pilgrimage -- as many high-status women have been physically assaulted by Saudi morality police for non-conforming head-wear or even applying lip-balm -- leading some to comment on the post-pan Arabist repressiveness of certain Arab nations due to excessively rigid, narrow and erroneous interpretation of Sharia law.

The Greatest American Essays: Saul Bellow (Herzog, Seize the Day, Humboldt's Gift) (1998)
Saul Bellow (June 10, 1915 -- April 5, 2005) was a Canadian-born American writer. For his literary contributions, Bellow was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, the Nobel Prize for Literature, and the National Medal of Arts. His books: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=tra0c7-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=ab0e5e685f7b86870169736dd3efa00f&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=saul%20bellow He is the only writer to win the National Book Award for Fiction three times and he received the Foundation's lifetime Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters in 1990. In the words of the Swedish Nobel Committee, his writing exhibited "the mixture of rich picaresque novel and subtle analysis of our culture, of entertaining adventure, drastic and tragic episodes in quick succession interspersed with philosophic conversation, all developed by a commentator with a witty tongue and penetrating insight into the outer and inner complications that drive us to act, or prevent us from acting, and that can be called the dilemma of our age." His best-known works include The Adventures of Augie March, Henderson the Rain King, Herzog, Mr. Sammler's Planet, Seize the Day, Humboldt's Gift and Ravelstein. Widely regarded as one of the 20th century's greatest authors, Bellow has had a "huge literary influence." Bellow said that of all his characters Eugene Henderson, of "Henderson the Rain King," was the one most like himself. Bellow grew up as an insolent slum kid, a "thick-necked" rowdy, and an immigrant from Quebec. As Christopher Hitchens describes it, Bellow's fiction and principal characters reflect his own yearning for transcendence, a battle "to overcome not just ghetto conditions but also ghetto psychoses." Bellow's protagonists, in one shape or another, all wrestle with what Corde (Albert Corde, the dean in "The Dean's December") called "the big-scale insanities of the 20th century." This transcendence of the "unutterably dismal" (a phrase from Dangling Man) is achieved, if it can be achieved at all, through a "ferocious assimilation of learning" (Hitchens) and an emphasis on nobility. In 1989, Bellow received the Peggy V. Helmerich Distinguished Author Award. The Helmerich Award is presented annually by the Tulsa Library Trust. Bellow attended the University of Chicago but later transferred to Northwestern University. He originally wanted to study literature, but he felt the English department was anti-Jewish. Instead, he graduated with honors in anthropology and sociology. It has been suggested Bellow's study of anthropology had an influence on his literary style, and anthropological references pepper his works. Bellow later did graduate work at the University of Wisconsin--Madison. Paraphrasing Bellow's description of his close friend Allan Bloom (see Ravelstein), John Podhoretz has said that both Bellow and Bloom "inhaled books and ideas the way the rest of us breathe air." In the 1930s, Bellow was part of the Chicago branch of the Works Progress Administration Writer's Project, which included such future Chicago literary luminaries as Richard Wright and Nelson Algren. Many of the writers were radical: if they were not members of the Communist Party USA, they were sympathetic to the cause. Bellow was a Trotskyist, but because of the greater numbers of Stalinist-leaning writers he had to suffer their taunts. In 1941 Bellow became a naturalized US citizen. In 1943, Maxim Lieber was his literary agent. During World War II, Bellow joined the merchant marine and during his service he completed his first novel, Dangling Man (1944) about a young Chicago man waiting to be drafted for the war. From 1946 through 1948 Bellow taught at the University of Minnesota, living on Commonwealth Avenue, in St. Paul, Minnesota. In 1948, Bellow was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship that allowed him to move to Paris, where he began writing The Adventures of Augie March (1953). Critics have remarked on the resemblance between Bellow's picaresque novel and the great 17th Century Spanish classic Don Quixote. The book starts with one of American literature's most famous opening paragraphs, and it follows its titular character through a series of careers and encounters, as he lives by his wits and his resolve. Written in a colloquial yet philosophical style, The Adventures of Augie March established Bellow's reputation as a major author. In the late 1950s he taught creative writing at the University of Puerto Rico at Río Piedras. One of his students was William Kennedy, who was encouraged by Bellow to write fiction. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saul_Bellow Image By MDCarchives (Own work) [CC-BY-SA-3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0) or GFDL (http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/fdl.html)], via Wikimedia Commons

Robert Frost: Biography, Poems, Quotes, The Road Not Taken, Education (1999)
Robert Lee Frost (March 26, 1874 – January 29, 1963) was an American poet. His work was initially published in England before it was published in America. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0805063412/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0805063412&linkCode=as2&tag=ub066-20&linkId=cf6d1d4a5a85efba516f64831d8b24d5 He is highly regarded for his realistic depictions of rural life and his command of American colloquial speech.[2] His work frequently employed settings from rural life in New England in the early twentieth century, using them to examine complex social and philosophical themes. One of the most popular and critically respected American poets of the twentieth century,[3] Frost was honored frequently during his lifetime, receiving four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry. He became one of America's rare "public literary figures, almost an artistic institution."[3] He was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in 1960 for his poetic works. On July 22, 1961, Frost was named Poet laureate of Vermont. In 2003, the critic Charles McGrath noted that critical views on Frost's poetry have changed over the years (as has his public image). In an article called "The Vicissitudes of Literary Reputation," McGrath wrote, "Robert Frost ... at the time of his death in 1963 was generally considered to be a New England folkie ... In 1977, the third volume of Lawrance Thompson's biography suggested that Frost was a much nastier piece of work than anyone had imagined; a few years later, thanks to the reappraisal of critics like William H. Pritchard and Harold Bloom and of younger poets like Joseph Brodsky, he bounced back again, this time as a bleak and unforgiving modernist."[24] In The Norton Anthology of Modern Poetry, editors Richard Ellmann and Robert O'Clair compared and contrasted Frost's unique style to the work of the poet Edwin Arlington Robinson since they both frequently used New England settings for their poems. However, they state that Frost's poetry was "less [consciously] literary" and that this was possibly due to the influence of English and Irish writers like Thomas Hardy and W.B. Yeats. They note that Frost's poems "show a successful striving for utter colloquialism" and always try to remain down to earth, while at the same time using traditional forms despite the trend of American poetry towards free verse which Frost famously said was "'like playing tennis without a net.'"[25] In providing an overview of Frost's style, the Poetry Foundation makes the same point, placing Frost's work "at the crossroads of nineteenth-century American poetry [with regard to his use of traditional forms] and modernism [with his use of idiomatic language and ordinary, every day subject matter]." They also note that Frost believed that "the self-imposed restrictions of meter in form" was more helpful than harmful because he could focus on the content of his poems instead of concerning himself with creating "innovative" new verse forms.[26] An earlier 1963 study by the poet James Radcliffe Squires spoke to the distinction of Frost as a poet whose verse soars more for the difficulty and skill by which he attains his final visions, than for the philosophical purity of the visions themselves. "'He has written at a time when the choice for the poet seemed to lie among the forms of despair: Science, solipsism, or the religion of the past century…Frost has refused all of these and in the refusal has long seemed less dramatically committed than others…But no, he must be seen as dramatically uncommitted to the single solution…Insofar as Frost allows to both fact and intuition a bright kingdom, he speaks for many of us. Insofar as he speaks through an amalgam of senses and sure experience so that his poetry seems a nostalgic memory with overtones touching some conceivable future, he speaks better than most of us. That is to say, as a poet must."' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Frost

Tibetan Colloquial Langauge Part 8 (Tibetan letter sounds)
Like other languages Tibetan language has its own style, articulation and diction. On the other hand it has some exceptions too. Such is the case with our phonic/letter sound. For instance, sounds/phonics of ལ་ད་ས་ and ན and many more has its regulation, but when these four suffixes comes after any root letter, one might experience some sound changes, and its normal too. So, i hope kids who are novice may reap the benefit and who are good will find a way to explain to next generation. May our language serve us and all the sentient beings.

FRENCH SLANG YOU NEED TO KNOW | How to use French slang
Hello future bilingual babes of the internets! So many of you have written me on Insta asking about my French language journey and if I would drop a French language/French slang video. So today I'm giving you a little French lesson on how to use French slang words, "cool" French phrases and expressions in actual conversation like a native French person would!! There are tons more but this is the list of the ultimate French slang you need to know! I put the subtitles in French and in English so you can copy the phrases directly and reuse them in your own French conversations. I also aimed to use real life example and just tried to have fun with this :) To be honest, most of this vocabulary and learning to sound French comes from living in Paris for the last four years and putting myself out there in language exchanges, so don't be afraid to just go for it if you really want to achieve French fluency. I'm also going to be talking to y'all about the special French slang called "verlan" which is really fun to use but challenging! I am obviously American so I still make mistakes, but I learned how to speak colloquial French and sound French by speaking it everyday (I speak French at home, at school and on the street) I am completely self taught in French (see my video on how I learned French) and never took any formal classes at a language school (I would consider myself bilingual C1, C2 level for the DELF/TCF test) so my speaking is about 150 times better than my writing, so if I made any mistakes be nice :) Here is a list of some of the phrases and words I used in the video: "grave", "kiffe", "wesh", "meuf", "j'ai le flemme", "je suis rincé", il m'a carotté", "je suis vénère", "chelou", "oim", "bof" and here are some links of more French slang (argot): I hope you enjoyed and don't forget to like and subscribe! bisous Instagram: @_purple_palace blog: www.witchyparis.com 1.)https://www.fluentin3months.com/french-slang/ 2.)https://www.thelocal.fr/20160712/verlan-frances-backwards-language-you-need-to-learn

Flip The Script - Book Preview
UPDATE: JUNE 2013: With the short window between the launch of our kickstarter and the books launch party, we sadly did not make our goal. We did however send Christian to SF and Portland with some help from Upper Playground in April, 2013. You can continue to support the project by purchasing some goods from our webstore here: http://www.indiemerch.com/handselecta The project continues and to date, Christian has given a lecture on American handstyles to compliment the book at the Type Directors Club, Parsons School of Design, SVA, Stanford University, Portland Northwest College of Art and NY Center for Art and Media Studies. He can be contacted via www.handselecta.com of you would like to have him come speak at your institution. Thanks. ---- I'm really excited to announce that Flip The Script will be hitting store shelves March 8 2013. I just got my advance copy. This has been a project ten years in the making. Over the last few years I have been very fortunate to have so many amazing writers open themselves to share their art & talents, insights, histories and personal stories with me. The Handselect project and Flip The Script, the book has been a passion of analysing graffiti handstyles, interviewing artists from the different and most influential cities around the USA, placing them in a context that few outsiders understand and discovering some factoids that many of the best writers themselves were unaware of until we unearthed them in the process. Stay tuned for more leaks and hit up our mailing list over at http://www.handselecta.com facebook, instagram and tumblr. There will be different promotions on each of these networks in the coming weeks. Below is a short preview of the content and interviews that you can look forward to in more detail in the book. Acknowledgments and gratitude to ThanksCamera for the technical support for the video. ----------------------- 10 years in the making, Handselecta is pleased to announce the release of our first book, Flip The Script, published by Gingko Press. Part history book, part calligraphy manual. it will be sure to be a monumental tome in the culture of graffiti and colloquial design. - Distinctive hand style lettering is an essential skill for artists and designers. Deftly executed hand crafted letter forms are a nearly forgotten art in an age of endless free fonts. Graffiti is one of the last reservoirs of highly refined, well practiced penmanship. The most reviled and persecuted form of Graffiti, the Tag, is seldom appreciated for the raw beauty of its skeletal letter forms. Most tags are removed immediately, and thus the casual viewer seldom has a chance to discern the difference between entry level and advanced hand styles. Within the pages of Flip the Script, author Christian Acker has systematically analyzed the best graffiti hand styles, contextualizing the work of graffiti writers from around the United States. Acker presents the various lettering samples in a clean organized format, giving the material a proper, formal treatment evoking classic typography books. 224 pages, Hardcover, 7'' x 9'' (178 x 229 mm) 100s of 2-color illustrations, English ISBN: 978-1-58423-460-9 $35.00

Lakota language
One of my favorite Lakȟóta speakers, Leroy Curley (Lakȟóta name is Wičháȟpi Waŋžíla). He has a beautiful voice and flow of speech. In Lakȟóta, there are more or less two styles of speaking: colloquial and formal. In formal situations every word is pronounced fully and 'accurately', whereas in coloquial speech, different pronounciations and contractions occure frequently. In this recording, Leroy Curley uses a lot of colloquial speech and therefore it may be hard to follow. With help from others, I've a decent idea what he is saying and I have put it here in the description. It may be possible that there are still mistakes in the transcription and therefore I ask fluent Lakȟóta speakers to help me improve this. Hó Wakȟáŋ Tȟáŋka Tȟuŋkášila. Tȟuŋkášila iyótaŋ wakȟáŋ. Hó léčhiya aŋpétu lúta yuphíyakel hihúŋni na hé uŋ wóphila eyápe ló. Na Lakȟótiya wóglakapi na Lakȟól wačhékiyapi háŋtaŋš tókȟašniyaŋ akhé wičhóni waštéšte waŋúŋyaŋkapi kte.

Hó lé aŋpétu kiŋ hé čhaŋtéwašteya wóphila eyápe ló. Hó mitákuye oyás'iŋ. I'm far from being fluent in Lakota, but here is my attempt at translating the words. "Great Mystery Grandfather. Most sacred Grandfather. A red day came pleasantly towards here and for that reason it is appreciated. When they [people] speak Lakota and say Lakota prayers then, without any trouble, we will see good human lives again. For those things I express having faith in you all(?). Also for the generation we live in all the elders are thanked. Grandfather I am nothing. It is my people that I love and who I will always consider as such, and for that reason each and every day I will take courage and that is why I work. Today, with a good heart that is appreciated. All my relations."

Classical Arabic - the language of the Qur'an and classical literature. It differs from Modern Standard Arabic mainly in style and vocabulary, some of which is archaic. All Muslims are expected to recite the Qur'an in the original language, however many rely on translations in order to understand the text. 2. Modern Standard Arabic (اللغة العربية الفصحى / al-luġatu l-ʿarabiyyatu l-fuṣḥā) - the universal language of the Arabic-speaking world which is understood by all Arabic speakers. It is the language of the vast majority of written material and of formal TV shows, lectures, etc. Each Arabic speaking country or region also has its own variety of colloquial spoken Arabic. These colloquial varieties of Arabic appear in written form in some poetry, cartoons and comics, plays and personal letters. There are also translations of the bible into most varieties of colloquial Arabic.

The factors that affect tone of voice
Take a premium course at https://www.udemy.com/writing-for-business/?couponCode=DRCLARELYNCHYOUTUBE Please subscribe to the channel and leave a comment below! Read my blog, Good Copy, Bad Copy: http://www.dorisandbertie.com/goodcopybadcopy/ Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/DorisandBertie Whatever you’re writing, nailing the right tone of voice is one of the trickiest things there is. Get it right and your reader will feel an instant connection with you or your brand. Dave: ‘Oh, scrumptious bumptious smoothie, I don’t know what I love more. Your squishy squashy strawberries or your cutsey wootsey little wordies’ Get it wrong and you’ll completely alienate them. Dave as a professor reading out an essay: ‘Hegel’s account of Kantian dualism was, like, totally gnarly, innit, mate’? Here are seven factors that’ll affect your tone of voice. First off, sentence length. Generally, the longer your sentences, the more formal your tone of voice. Although even for really formal writing like academic essays, you’ll want to be careful not to make your sentences too long, because that’s going to affect how readable your writing is. But in a less formal environment, you may be able to get away with much shorter sentences. Used well, even one word sentences can help you get your message across powerfully and persuasively. Word choice, too, will affect your tone of voice. And again, the shorter the words the less formal the style. Compare for example ‘prerequisite’ versus the more colloquial ‘a must’ or ‘prior to’ versus ‘before’. Although again, even with academic writing, you don’t want to be using long words for the sake of it. As George Orwell famously said, ‘Never use a long word when a short one will do’. And if you’re working for a very modern, creative company you might be able to get away with slang or even swearing. I once worked with a firm whose four company values, stated in all the HR literature were ‘Brave, Smart, Humble and Give a Shit’. Another thing that affects tone of voice is the use of active rather than passive verbs. For example, compare: ‘personal development is encouraged’ sounds less friendly and more formal than ‘we’ll invest in your personal development’. But to quote George Orwell again, never use the passive when the active will do. All these factors will affect your overall readability. In general, the longer your sentences, the longer and fancier your words and the more you use the passive, the more formal your writing will sound. But even for academic writing or formal business writing you want to keep your writing as readable as possible. As a former editor of mine once said, even a lawyer will never complain that something’s too easy to read. Another factor is how ‘pronouny’ your writing is. For example, addressing your reader directly as ‘you’ rather than ‘the client’ or talking about ‘we’ and ‘us’ rather than ‘the company’. Another factor that affects tone of voice is the use of contractions – for example, “you’ll” and “you’re” sound more conversational than “you will” and “you are”. In an academic essay, you’ll want to spell out these contractions, but in a piece of business writing you’ll probably be able to get away with them. And the final factor that affects tone of voice is the extent to which you depart from traditional grammar rules ideas. For example, depending on your reader, you can probably get away with starting sentences with ‘and’ and ‘but’ in business writing because they’ll give your writing a friendly, conversational tone. But you’ll probably want to stick to the formal rules of grammar for more academic pieces. I’m Dr Clare Lynch. Subscribe to the channel for more quick writing tips.

Indru Oru Thagaval Thenkatchi Ko, Swaminathan Vol-2
Thenkatchi Ko, Swaminathan, a down – to – earth human being and an impressive narrator was the host of the daily programme “INDRU ORU THAGAVAL” over All India Radio Chennai. Millions of people across Tamil Nadu woke up to his voice and relished his unique presentation every morning for several years. Many still remember Thenkatchi Ko Swaminathan for his popular daily programme “INDRU ORU THAGAVAL” on All India Radio (AIR). This five minute talklet, presented in simple colloquial Tamil punctuated by anecdotes meant to make you smile and ponder over, was broadcast without break for 14 years from 1988 until his retirement in 2002. After completing his B.Sc in agriculture from the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University in Coimbatore, Shri. Swaminathan worked as an Agricultural Extension Officer for a few years. Later he joined AIR in 1977 and retired as Assistant Station Director. Before presenting Indru Oru Thagaval, he was involved in Pannai Illam (Farm & Home) broadcast which was an instant success with the farmers. Through this programme, he taught farmers modern agricultural techniques using his inimitable colloquial style.
