Read this excerpt from Frederick Douglass’s speech “The Hypocrisy of American Slavery.” Fellow citizens, pardon me, and allow me to ask, why am I called upon to speak here today? What have I or those I represent to do with your national independence? Are the great principles of political freedom and of natural justice, embodied in that Declaration of Independence, extended to us? And am I, therefore, called upon to bring our humble offering to the national altar, and to confess the benefits, and express devout gratitude for the blessings resulting from your independence to us?

Would to God, both for your sakes and ours, that an affirmative answer could be truthfully returned to these questions. Then would my task be light, and my burden easy and delightful. For who is there so cold that a nation's sympathy could not warm him? Who so obdurate and dead to the claims of gratitude, that would not thankfully acknowledge such priceless benefits? Who so stolid and selfish that would not give his voice to swell the hallelujahs of a nation's jubilee, when the chains of servitude had been torn from his limbs?

What effect is achieved by using a series of questions in this speech?

A. It conveys a sense of wonderment about the tenets of the Declaration of Independence.

B.It gets the audience to start thinking about whether the Declaration of Independence was beneficial for the slaves.

C.It makes the audience begin to resent the policies and practices of the US government.

D.It creates a parallel structure intended to urge the audience to protest against the Declaration of Independence.

Answers

I believe the correct answer is: B. It gets the audience to start thinking about whether the Declaration of Independence was beneficial for the slaves.

 

     In this excerpt from speech “The Hypocrisy of American Slavery” delivered by Frederick Douglass, former slave and abolitionist leader, on July 4, 1852, the effect achieved by using a series of questions is to make audience think about whether the Declaration of Independence was beneficial for the slaves.

     The types of questions used in this speech are called a rhetorical question, which represent the figure of speech in the form of a question that is asked to make a point rather than to elicit an answer. The proof that these questions make a point, rather than licit the answer, is the fact that Douglass says: “that an affirmative answer could be truthfully returned to these questions, then would my task be light, and my burden easy and delightful”, meaning that he does not ask of the an answer, but to give thought about whether the Declaration of Independence was beneficial for the slaves.

It makes the audience begin to resent the policies and practices of the US government.

What is a theme?

A theme is a topic that is the focus of a speech, a piece of literature, a person's ideas, or an exhibition. A theme is a significant notion that permeates a story. Something a little deeper is at play here rather than the narrative or the summary.

A text's action is connected to a central concept about our reality via a theme. The main idea or impression that is expressed in literature is typically referred to as the theme. The subject that is discussed or presented in writing is referred to as a topic.

Different types of themes are:

  • Beauty.
  • Good vs. evil.
  • Coming-of-age.
  • Loyalty.

Therefore, the correct option is A. Theme is the message in the story.

In at least fifty words, explain how the use of various clause types can improve writing.

Answers

A clause is a group of related words containing a subject and a verb A clause can be usefully distinguished from a phrase, which is a group of related words that does not contain a subject-verb relationship, such as "in the morning" or "running down the street" or "having grown used to this harassment." A review of the different kinds of phrasesmight be helpful.
Learning the various terms used to define and classify clauses can be a vocabulary lesson in itself. This digital handout categorizes clauses into independent and dependent clauses. This simply means that some clauses can stand by themselves, as separate sentences, and some can't. Another term for dependent clause is subordinate clause: this means that the clause is subordinate to another element (the independent clause) and depends on that other element for its meaning. The subordinate clause is created by a subordinating conjunction or dependent word.

Grammar clauses can be used alone or in combination with other clauses or sentences. Words and phrases are the parts of language that make up clauses. Clauses can be used  to improve both writing and reading. if you can't distinguish between a phrase, a dependent clause, and an independent clause, you will have trouble with writing fragments instead of sentences. Sentence fragments are confusing for readers, because they do not make sense they are not full sentences. Sentence fragments don't contain any usable information and no subject or anything that would help a reader follow what the writer is trying to say. Sentence fragments look like sentences but they are not. So knowing how to use clauses helps to make writing more understandable.
