  • Dear Mary,
    I am interested in your post because it discusses the important topic of the effects of social media on our everyday lives. I think that many people do not realize how largely affected we all are by social media. I like how you mention that “speaking trends on social media will eventually begin to appear in the way one speaks.” I thi…Read More

    How Language Affects Perception

    Some evidence has revealed that language can affect perception and thought. The “linguistic relativity hypothesis” from the 1930s states that language shapes ideas and greatly affects how people perceive the world. By the 1960s, many scholars rejected this idea...

    • Speaking from experience– you are right, Kaylee! I do think of “ghalazio” and “ble” as two totally different things. In fact, when I was in Greek school, and I’d refer to the stripes on the Greek flag as “ble,” I’d get scolded! What I perceived as just a difference in semantics, my Greek school teacher perceived as a lack of respect/patriotism/decorum/attention to detail.

      Really cool topic for your blog!

  • Dear Zhelanea,
    I am interested in your post because it draws attention to the issue of low voter turnouts from younger generations.

    Kaylee commented on the post, Immigrants in America

    Dear Litzy,
    I am interested in your post because it highlights the benefits of welcoming immigrants to America. I like how you mention that immigrants “come with nothing and have to deal with the barrier of a foreign language.” This is important because I think that many people do not understand the difficult challenges faced by many imm…Read More

  • Dear Gus,
    I am intrigued by your post because I think that the question you are answering is a growing concern for many people. As we begin to use an increasing amount of technology in our daily lives, it is important to reflect on the restrictions that should be put in place for technology companies. One thing you said that stands out to me is:…Read More

  • Dear Nicholas,
    I am interested in your post because I think it does a great job of highlighting some of the most important effects of the coronavirus pandemic. I like how you pointed out that unemployment because of the virus “has caused many families excessive financial stress and in a few cases has probably caused much more damage to p…Read More
