My Study Guide It’s important to remember that this midterm will not be about regurgitating facts, but about actually applying the concepts to the examples. These concepts include: The role of repetition draws attention, reinforces message, gives the person talking time to think of what comes next Focalization highlighting the similarities Erasure hiding, or not acknowledging the differences Metaphorical frames and entailments when a metaphor is set up, it has specific ideas and rules that go with it. War metaphor means armies and bombs, criminal metaphor means jail. Narratives more persuasive than discussion, puts you in a position of authority to set the mindset and gives an unfair advantage in a debate Indexes/indexing/indexicality referring to a specific set of circumstances that set a frame of mind Naturalization the idea that it exists that way in nature, is god given, etc Language ideologies attitudes, beliefs, opinions, or theories people have about language Linguistic details to pay attention to Personal pronoun distinctions switch from she/he/they to words like we can invoke sense of unity Demonstrative distinctions people are more likely to identify with “this” than with “that” Loaded vs neutral neutral statements don’t evoke the same level of emotion that loaded statements do Be familiar with the cultures from class, such as the Simoans, Khaluli, Arapahoe, etc Example questions from class At age 2, who would be a better lawyer? (in reference to cultures we discussed) As a consultant, referencing what we discussed in class, what would you say to a parent trying to raise the most successful child?
