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?
