Which of the following lines from John Muir's "The Calypso Borealis" shows an example of dialect? The flower was white and made the impression of the utmost simple purity like a snowflower.
No other bloom was near it, for the bog a short distance below the surface was still frozen, and the water was ice cold.
"I wish you would write me, say once a year, so I may keep you in sight."
"Mony a puir body has been lost in that muckle, cauld, dreary bog and never been found."

Answers

Answer 1
Answer: Dialect is the particular form of language that is specific to a certain region or group of people. For example people in one region would say call soft drinks "Pop", but people in another region would call it "Soda".
So in the answer, we are looking for a form of speech. Now we can get rid of options A and B, because they have to forms of speech.
Option C has speech, but it has no slang, or peculiar words....Now option D, however uses  the words "muckle, cauld" which aren't words used globally. They are dialects.
The answer is the last one, option D

What is the central idea of the first six chapters of Dickens's Oliver Twist? Support your answer with examples from the novel.

Answers

The central ideas of the first six chapter might be that he was born in a workhouse and his mother died after giving birth to him. But the nurse argued that she was found dead the night before. He was sent tho a branch workhouse for juvenile offenders were he really suffered. at his 9th birthday he was sent back the the first workhouse. He suffered for starvation. He attended Mrs Sowerberry´s funeral. Finally and epidemic occurred and he gained a lot of experience in the undertaking business.

The central idea of the first six chapters of Oliver Twist is the mistreatment of the poor and the helpless by society in general and by public officials in charge of orphanages and workhouses in particular. These chapters show the severe abuse, exploitation, and daily suffering to which orphans such as Oliver were subjected throughout their childhood.

The suggestion that "Oliver should be 'farmed'" indicates that the parish officials viewed orphans and the poor more as animals than as humans. The outcry at Oliver’s request for more gruel also highlights the deep-rooted lack of humane treatment in the workhouse system. The officials' callousness and hard-heartedness is evident when they consider giving Oliver to a chimney sweeper as an apprentice. They are not concerned with how dangerous the job is and how brutally chimney sweepers treat the boys who work for them. Dickens’s depiction of the officials' cruelty and hypocrisy are bitingly sarcastic, as is evident in these lines:

For a week after the commission of the impious and profane offence of asking for more, Oliver remained a close prisoner in the dark and solitary room to which he had been consigned by the wisdom and mercy of the board.

In describing Oliver’s woes, Dickens reminds readers how people (whether rich or poor) treat those they believe are inferior to them. For example, even Noah Claypole, who is himself a "charity boy," mistreats Oliver because he considers Oliver lower than himself in the social order:

The shop-boys in the neighbourhood had long been in the habit of branding Noah in the public streets, with the ignominious epithets of “leathers,” “charity,” and the like; and Noah had bourne them without reply. But, now that fortune had cast in his way a nameless orphan, at whom even the meanest could point the finger of scorn, he retorted on him with interest.

How does the narrator's attitude toward the raven change between the time the bird first appears and the end of the poem? Give specific examples from the poem to support your answer.

Answers

The raven quickly piques the writer's interest and delight, as the narrator describes, “Then this ebony bird fooling my dismal mind into laughing.”

What raven change, the bird, appears in the of the poem?

In the first line of the poem, he tries to study a “book of forgotten lore” to get out of his gloom, but the raven interrupts him. As soon as he starts asking it questions about Lenore, the raven's “nevermore” response causes him to become even more depressed.

However, the presence of the raven at his door and its ability to speak fast make him uneasy, and his original attitude gradually transforms into one of uncertainty and rage.

The word “Nevermore” is used by the raven in reference to a new request or query from the narrator each time, hence its significance alters.

Therefore, He responds to the bird, who appears to be saying that he will never leave the narrator.

The Mississippi River Without question America's greatest river, the Mississippi, has made major contributions to the physical and economic growth of the nation. Coursing through the heart of America, it supplies water for the cities and industries that have located along its banks. In 1705 the first cargo was floated down the river from the Indian country around Wabash. This was a load of 15,000 bear and deer hides.. The Mississippi River is the main stem of a network of inland navigable waterways which form a system of about 12,350 miles in length. from The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, by Mark Twain Tom’s mind was made up now. He was gloomy and desperate. He was a forsaken, friendless boy, he said; nobody loved him; when they found out what they had driven him to, perhaps they would be sorry; he had tried to do right and get along, but they would not let him; since nothing would do them but to be rid of him, let it be so; and let them blame him for the consequences—why shouldn't they? What right had the friendless to complain? Yes, they had forced him to it at last: he would lead a life of crime. There was no choice. (Tom is now joined by Joe)…As the two boys walked sorrowing along, they made a new compact to stand by each other and be brothers and never separate till death relieved them of their troubles. Then they began to lay their plans. Joe was for being a hermit, and living on crusts in a remote cave, and dying, some time, of cold and want and grief; but after listening to Tom, he conceded that there were some conspicuous advantages about a life of crime, and so he consented to be a pirate. Three miles below St. Petersburg, at a point where the Mississippi River was a trifle over a mile wide, there was a long, narrow, wooded island, with a shallow bar at the head of it, and this offered well as a rendezvous. It was not inhabited; it lay far over toward the further shore, abreast a dense and almost wholly unpeopled forest. So Jackson's Island was chosen. Who were to be the subjects of their piracies was a matter that did not occur to them. Which statement supports information from both passages?
A) Tom and Joe became pirates on the Mississippi River, stealing cargo from Wabash.
B) The Mississippi River is an imaginary, but powerful symbol of energy and freedom.
C) The physical and economic growth of Tom and Joe are foreshadowed by the setting of the Mississippi River.
D) The Mississippi River places the novel's characters in the heart of America, while supporting the boys' idea of becoming pirates.
