Improve your Writing: Show, Not Tell
 
06:08
Become a better writer, no matter what you're writing! I'll show you how to take simple, boring sentences and turn them to vibrant, expressive writing. As you practice this technique in your writing, you will find it carries over to your everyday spoken English as well. Before you know it, you'll be a more dynamic, compelling speaker and writer. Next, watch this video to improve your vocabulary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxjsWwgPjwM Take the quiz on this lesson at: https://www.engvid.com/english-writing-show-not-tell/ TRANSCRIPT Welcome back to engVid. Here we are with a writing lesson. We are looking at the skill of showing, not telling, and it's going to transform your writing as long as you put it into practice afterwards. "Show, not tell. What's he talking about?" When we're writing we want to avoid simple statements that don't really add any description or flavour. For example: "The man was stressed." [Snores] Boring. Instead, I want you to paint a picture, I really want you to describe the man is stressed without telling me that he is. So how can you do that? We're kind of trying to avoid this word, and describe it instead. So what's he doing? "The man was fidgeting. Ah, he's fidgeting. He's so stressed, he can't sort of stay still. And biting his nails." Okay? So pick out a couple of details that show how the person was. Next one: "The room was messy." Again, it's a simple, simple sentence. It's just one sort of main clause and it's not very interesting. Much better to describe the items in the room that make it messy. For example: "There was a leftover pizza, dirty clothes were strewn"... I'll write that word for you. That means they were covering the floor. "...and there were dirty plates and cups". Okay? These details give us the idea that it is messy. Example three: "The woman was confident." Okay, but it would be much more effective if you described how she was confident. So, how does she move? How do other people react to her? "She strode", that means she walked, but with purpose. Okay? So I've picked an interesting verb. "She strode into the room, and everyone turned their heads to notice her." Okay? Much clearer, more vivid idea of confidence than just saying she was confident. Example four: "The boy was careful." Tell us how he was careful. "He placed his favourite magazine in the top drawer of his cabinet." Okay? So we need to say exactly what he is placing, the object there has been missed out. "He placed"... There's no room for me to write it. You get the idea, he places his favourite book or magazine, and look how specific it is: "the top drawer of his cabinet". Next example: "The stadium was full." Again, I'm bored with this simple sentence construction. We need to make it more interesting. "The sound from the stadium was deafening", okay? And then give us some main action perhaps: "The sound from the stadium was deafening as the crowd rose up to chant the player's name." Okay? Give the sense that the stadium is full from what you can see and what you can hear. Okay? A couple of ones to describe weather. "It was hot." Okay? Well, a very young child could write a sentence like that, so if you're sort of a teenager or an adult, it's time to raise the bar. How can we tell that it is hot? Well: "The sun was causing damage to", "The sun was melting", "The sun was burning", "The sun was causing the lady's skin to turn red". Okay? Pick out details that show the effect. "It was cold. It was cold." How do we know it was cold? How cold did it feel? What can you see? "Drainpipes were freezing, ice was as thick as"... I don't know. "It was three inches thick." Whatever, you've got to show details rather than just stating things. -"It was windy." -"The umbrella was totally bent out of shape. The umbrella"-you know for keeping the rain off us-"was totally"-that means fully-"bent"-Yeah? Bent-"...out of shape", out of its normal position. "He found it funny." Right? How funny did he find it? Okay? Better to... For us to get the idea to picture what he was doing: "He was rolling around the floor in hysterics." Okay? When you're so... Find something so funny, you're like: [Laughs]. Okay? He can't control his body he finds it so funny. "Hysterics", that means like totally lost control. "Hysteria". Okay? Hysterics. "In hysterics" means finding something really, really funny. "The castle was captured." Right. I want to get a sense of drama. I want to imagine what's happening there at the castle. Is the king having his head cut off? Are the new army marching in? What's happening? "The new flag was hoisted up on high, greeted by a cheer from the crowd." Okay? Paint pictures, pick out details. Okay? It's good to have a range of adjectives, but how can you show those adjectives? How can you describe them instead? Thank you for watching today's video. Have a go at the quiz after this, and I'll see you very soon. Remember to subscribe. Bye.

Steven Pinker on Good Writing, with Ian McEwan
 
01:18:03
http://www.intelligencesquared.com/events/steven-pinker-ian-mcewan-good-writing/ Filmed at the Royal Geographical Society on 25th September 2014. Steven Pinker is one of the world’s leading authorities on language, mind and human nature. A professor of psychology at Harvard, he is the bestselling author of eight books and regularly appears in lists of the world’s top 100 thinkers. On September 25th 2014 he returned to the Intelligence Squared stage to discuss his latest publication 'The Sense of Style', a short and entertaining writing guide for the 21st century. Pinker will argue that bad writing can’t be blamed on the internet, or on “the kids today”. Good writing has always been hard: a performance requiring pretence, empathy, and a drive for coherence. He answered questions such as: how can we overcome the “curse of knowledge”, the difficulty in imagining what it’s like not to know something we do? And how can we distinguish the myths and superstitions about language from helpful rules that enhance clarity and grace? Pinker showed how everyone can improve their mastery of writing and their appreciation of the art. Professor Pinker was in conversation with Ian McEwan, one of Britain’s most acclaimed novelists, who has frequently explored the common ground between art and science.

Improving Your Cursive Handwriting

A couple of quick tips to improving your cursive handwriting -- which seems to be something almost everyone wants to do after they get their first fountain pen. The pen I'm writing with is a Pilot Metropolitan with a Fine nib. The writing style is something I derived from one commonly used in the age of dip pens -- when it was important, if not imperative, to be legible since it was your only option. I call it CJ Roundhand.

Top 5 Tips to Develop Your Fiction Writing Voice
 
07:47
Aspiring writers often wonder how to develop their writing voice. In this video I go over my top tips for developing a strong voice that works well for your novel. This video is part of my Novel Boot Camp series. A new video will be posted every weekday in July. The FULL SCHEDULE can be viewed here: https://ellenbrockediting.com/2016/06/22/novel-boot-camp-free-novel-writing-course-workshop-in-july/ Please like, subscribe, and share my videos! It really helps me out. Thanks for watching! VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS - Reading a wide variety of novels is essential in creating a strong voice. - Avoid stealing or mimicking another writer's voice because you will struggle to maintain that voice over the long run. You will likely get frustrated and quit writing. Five Tips for Developing Your Writing Voice 1. Write with Intention - Think about the emotion and tone you want to convey to readers and make sure your word choices reflect it. If you want to create a tense or scary tone, don't compare clouds to fluffy pillows. If you want to create an uplifting tone, don't compare a mountain range to the edge of a serrated knife. 2. Experiment with Point of View - Writers often stick to one point of view because they are comfortable with it or because they believe their genre requires a specific point of view. Experimenting with point of view and choosing the one that works better for you can significantly improve your voice. 3. Edit - Some writers believe that a strong voice means you get everything right the first time, but this is not the case. All writers need to edit their work to bring out their voice and to replace sloppy similes or poor word choices. Editing is a great way to pull out the voice you're shooting for. 4. Know the Basics - A "weak voice" often just means that the writer hasn't mastered the basics. Make sure you understand point of view, passive speech, and tense. It's also important to recognize and avoid cliches, filtering, and telling. Learning and applying the basics can move your voice from weak to competent. 5. Relax - It takes a long time to develop a strong voice so try to be patient. You can also relax because a strong voice is not nearly as important as most writers think it is. So long as your voice is competent and isn't blatantly weak, it is probably strong enough to be successful so long as the story itself is worth telling. A voice that simply gets the job done is sufficient in most genres and most stories.

Hemingway's Writing Style and Voice: The 10-Point Discussion
 
08:51
Heay! Josh here, welcome to the WriteRightRite (: All literary critics understand that Hemingway as a minimalist writer, and that his style — his voice was one of the most unique writing styles of the time, and still is. But our question is, how can I write like him? How do I find the voice and style of the minimalist writer, like Hemingway? This list of 10 ways Hemingway wrote like a minimalist should point us in the right direction. 1. The "Hard Boiled" Style Hemingway wrote in a masculine, scientific, and at times rigid and abrupt way... 2. Be Efficient Hemingway despised superfluous literature... 3. Write the Truth "All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know." 4. Find Solitude "Although far from a recluse, Hemingway always wrote in solitude or near solitude when conditions didn't allow. In A Moveable Feast he recalls the cold of his room, warmed by sticks in the winter: "It was either six or eight flights up to the top floor and it was very cold and I knew how much it cost for a bundle of small twigs, to make a fire that would warm the room." 5. Write Standing up In 1958 a reporter named George Plimpton interviewed Hemingway. He writes: "A working habit he has had from the beginning, Hemingway stands when he writes. He stands in a pair of his oversized loafers on the worn skin of a lesser kudu -- the typewriter and the reading board chest-high opposite him." 6. Find a Secret Writing Place This is not just a place of solitude, but a different place than your normal haunts. 7. Write With Pencil and Paper It's not everyone's forte, especially in the modern world of laptops and wi-fi. But this was Ernest Hemingway's way. 8. Short Sentences Are Successful Hemingway was once challenged to write a story using only 6 words. He wrote: "For sale: baby shoes, never used." 9. Use Language Aggressively That doesn't mean cuss every other word, although at times Hemingway did that too. The more energetically forceful words are, the less need there is for more of them. Consider these 10. Keep the Good, Trash the Bad In 1934, Hemingway told F. Scott Fitzgerald: "I write one page of masterpiece to ninety-one pages of sh**. I try to put the sh** in the wastebasket." -Josh Photos by: Thanks for the great photos! - Marie-Lan Nguyen http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boiled_egg#mediaviewer/File:Egg_spiral_egg_cup.jpg Janet Ramsden https://www.flickr.com/photos/ramsd/11075130845/in/photolist-7anDgu-aAvh9L-jvULdT-9YdeZ4-iae6-jVhfXr-4jRfvE-54yxHY-5osiWk-mAGz83-6Ewshz-hSEWxP-da4Pmd-kx2b3k-5U3ihF-6nzWoW-nazkHt-7F8ukc-jmNcZi-iKqkQc-bo1UfR-fMfTmm-doH1wo-nmpsYt-6y65Ha-6y5UsB-7hFHDj-cKczVA-9SBogZ-fKhf8J-dXXEdW-d1pogh-fK1FYo-4NFgXf-7EVvgf-6MWhZA-mjqpwg-a55puw-B78H8-6tERqT-RC5ZR-tRTwU-5DeHyu-9GJP3P-61sd5t-jGvqiG-6RFNzH-6pkj4W-2Vb39b-sCTj Improvana http://improvana.tumblr.com/ Geraint Rowland https://www.flickr.com/photos/geezaweezer/13519812124/in/photolist-7anDgu-aAvh9L-jvULdT-9YdeZ4-iae6-jVhfXr-4jRfvE-54yxHY-5osiWk-mAGz83-6Ewshz-hSEWxP-da4Pmd-kx2b3k-5U3ihF-6nzWoW-nazkHt-7F8ukc-jmNcZi-iKqkQc-bo1UfR-fMfTmm-doH1wo-nmpsYt-6y65Ha-6y5UsB-7hFHDj-cKczVA-9SBogZ-fKhf8J-dXXEdW-d1pogh-fK1FYo-4NFgXf-7EVvgf-6MWhZA-mjqpwg-a55puw-B78H8-6tERqT-RC5ZR-tRTwU-5DeHyu-9GJP3P-61sd5t-jGvqiG-6RFNzH-6pkj4W-2Vb39b-sCTj Tobias Vemmenby https://www.flickr.com/photos/toobydoo/11350433966/in/photolist-hyH1UN-cResdL-6fWNYP-9aXQzK-6YEhtv-fhCMtq-jUqYE-4uLWG6-4MfCNH-7SyD2r-cUv4i3-6YJjjy-4f2GNe-btBcgy-cXfuvm-8uAuod-ihZWzm-84G99h-8gVDyg-jg1yUu-9EwYzB Laura Ritchie https://www.flickr.com/photos/lauraritchie/7874958188/in/photolist-cZTdHb-b3JagT-5b7m8i-7GHQjM-6iriP7-74kT37-iTBuer-aafHex-fUw3tp-b18J7g-8FDhnK-atwsgk-73EYvL-dVr5uX-963van-9vNiDT-9vZQbU-6CAqjw-6tbFKY-8kCy1P-6KDN3R-aNgqzX-7fw487-ax9Wxo-6FdyvF-8rEo7Q-ar28sq-ba2bue-b18FWx-6KDvJR-74gcCn-b18JHa-aubwL4-azLAn1-6w5iMm-jeNbbb-bifZjM-mmjP9P-8Z25y7-aiuSwC-613NTr-eetGE3-81uiaD-6zMFTc-6tbFU3-9WhLYe-6NjxHx-iAn97x-9TfHCw-8KffUP

Mastering Style: The Learning and Teaching of Writing
 
01:15:52
The Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching (HILT), in collaboration with the Harvard Writers at Work Lecture Series, welcomed Professor Steven Pinker and Visiting Professor Jill Abramson on December 9th, 2014 in a talk at Harvard titled, "Mastering Style: The Learning and Teaching of Writing." The discussion, inspired by the recent publication of Professor Pinker’s book, The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person’s Guide to Writing in the 21st Century, was focused on the teaching and learning of writing, associated challenges, and practical recommendations. The starting point of effective writing, Pinker shared, is for the author to determine a mental model of the communication scenario between the writer and the reader. Pinker shared the “classic style” theory of interpreting writer/reader communication from literary scholars Francis-Noel Thomas and Mark Turner. Classic style aims to help the reader see objective reality, which can be accomplished by focusing on the thing being shown and not on the activity of studying it, as well as by avoiding clichés and “metaconcepts” (concepts about concepts), among other recommendations. Academic writing, in contrast, is frequently written in postmodern or self-conscious style, one that includes apologizing and hedging.

Subscribe for regular science videos: http://bit.ly/RiSubscRibe Watch the Q&A here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rYAnYXIhL0 In this brand-new talk, introduced by Lord Melvyn Bragg, Steven argues that style still matters: in communicating effectively, in enhancing the spread of ideas, in earning a reader’s trust and, not least, in adding beauty to the world. Steven Pinker is an experimental psychologist and one of the world’s foremost writers on language, mind, and human nature. He is Professor in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University and conducts research on language and cognition but also writes for publications such as the New York Times, Time, and is the author of many books, including The Language Instinct and How the Mind Works. Melvyn Bragg is a broadcaster, writer and novelist. He was made a Life Peer (Lord Bragg of Wigton) in 1998.

(Correct) There is an exhibition at the hotel. (Incorrect) The hotel is holding an exhibition. (Correct) • Avoid using unnecessary words in your sentences like very; really, a lot instead use better vocabulary.

Exam skills: 6 tips to help you with writing exams
 
02:26
Your writing is one of the aspects of the English language you'll be tested on – so as the exam approaches make sure you know what to do. Watch this video to find out six top tips to help you in your writing exam. Then visit our website and test your understanding in our quiz: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/course/english-you-need/unit-15/session-1 Transcript Rob Your writing is one of the aspects of the English language you'll be tested on – so as the exam approaches make sure you know what to do. Listen to our top tips to help you on your way! Well before the exam day, familiarise yourself with the structure of the writing test – do plenty of practice tests, preferably in timed conditions. This will help you look at the timing and the type of writing you're expected to produce. But don't just do them – get feedback on your writing and act on it so that you learn from it. Try to rewrite your work based on this feedback. Once you're in the real exam, keep calm! This is examiner, Mark Shea's advice… Mark Shea, Examiner Doing an exam successfully is to a large extent a question of good time management. If you’ve done practice exams before, you should have a good idea of how long each part should take you, and when you have to hurry. Rob So manage your time – know how long you have for each question. Now, read each question carefully - paying particular attention to instruction verbs such as discuss, examine, compare, contrast. Next, make a plan before you start writing – you could possibly write down all your ideas and arguments and plan how to use these in your writing. Now it's time to start writing – as you write, don't forget to keep the appropriate structure in mind and when you've finished, make sure you read what you've written and correct any mistakes you've made – and that you've actually answered the question! Remember the feedback you received for your practice papers and make sure you've acted on this in the real exam. Follow these tips and hopefully everything will go smoothly. Good luck!

The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person’s Guide  to Writing in the 21st Century
 
02:09:41
WHY IS SO MUCH WRITING SO BAD, and how can we make it better? Is the English language being corrupted by texting and social media? Do people write badly on purpose, to obfuscate and impress? Have dictionaries abandoned their responsibility to safeguard correct usage? Do kids today even care about good writing? In his latest book the Harvard linguist, cognitive scientist, bestselling author (The Language Instinct, How the Mind Works, The Blank Slate, and The Better Angels of Our Nature) and chair of the Usage Panel of The American Heritage Dictionary, Dr. Steven Pinker, answers these questions and more. Pinker applies insights from the sciences of language and mind to the challenge of crafting clear, coherent, and stylish prose. Filled with examples of great and gruesome modern prose, The Sense of Style shows how the art of writing can be a form of pleasurable mastery and a fascinating intellectual topic in its own right, that is also informed by science. A book signing will follow the lecture. http://www.skeptic.com/upcoming-lectures/sense-of-style-writing-in-21st-century/

The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person's Guide to Writing in the 21st Century
 
01:06:47
Why is so much writing so bad, and how can we make it better? Is the English language being corrupted by texting and social media? Do the kids today even care about good writing? Why should any of us care? In The Sense of Style, the bestselling linguist and cognitive scientist Steven Pinker answers these questions and more. Rethinking the usage guide for the twenty-first century, Pinker doesn�t carp about the decline of language or recycle pet peeves from the rulebooks of a century ago. Instead, he applies insights from the sciences of language and mind to the challenge of crafting clear, coherent, and stylish prose. In this short, cheerful, and eminently practical book, Pinker shows how writing depends on imagination, empathy, coherence, grammatical knowhow, and an ability to savor and reverse engineer the good prose of others. He replaces dogma about usage with reason and evidence, allowing writers and editors to apply the guidelines judiciously, rather than robotically, being mindful of what they are designed to accomplish. Filled with examples of great and gruesome prose, Pinker shows us how the art of writing can be a form of pleasurable mastery and a fascinating intellectual topic in its own right.

How to write a good essay: Paraphrasing the question
 
14:39
Do you sometimes struggle to begin writing an essay when taking an exam? Good news! There is an important writing skill that will help you improve your essay introductions. This technique is called "paraphrasing", and it means rewriting something using different words. In this lesson, I will teach you how to paraphrase successfully and how to change essay questions into your own words. These skills are very useful for university and high school students, as well as any students writing English proficiency exams like the TOEFL or IELTS. TAKE THE QUIZ: http://www.engvid.com/how-to-write-a-good-essay-paraphrasing-the-question/ WATCH NEXT: Essay Writing – 6 ways to compare: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8WSzwBD7GQ TRANSCRIPT Hi, there. My name is Emma, and in today's video I'm going to teach you something very important for if you're taking any type of test that has a writing component. So, if you are taking the IELTS, the TOEFL, the CELPIP, even just a university test, it can be any type of test, but if you're asked to write something like an essay or a paragraph, this video is for you. Okay? So I'm going to teach you a very important skill that will help improve your marks when it comes to writing on tests. So, let's get started. So, I have here an essay question. This question is actually... I've seen it on the IELTS. You know, you have similar types of questions on the TOEFL, sometimes in university. The question is this: "Education is the single most important factor in the development of a country. Do you agree or disagree?" Or maybe: "To what extent do you agree or disagree?" So, this is an example of a question you might be asked. Now, a problem a lot of students have is in their answer to this question. They see this, and they think: "Okay, education is the most important factor in the development of a country, yes, I agree." So then they... Or: "I disagree", and they start writing. And what do they write? Usually the very first thing students will write is this: "I agree that education is the single most important factor in the development of a country because..." So, what is the problem with this? Is there any problem to start off your essay with something like this, or to start off your answer? There's a big problem. So I want you to take a moment and think: "What could be the problem with starting your essay off with this sentence?" Okay, well, if you noticed, you have here the word: "education, education, is, is, the single most important, most important factor". If you notice, these are the same. They're the exact same, except for: "I agree that" and "because". The student, here, has used the exact same wording that is in the question. So, if you do this on the IELTS-and many students do this, same with on the TOEFL-you actually will lose marks, and same with in university, because you're not showing your abilities; you're just copying what somebody else has said or what the essay question is. So, in this video, I'm going to show you first off... First off, I'm going to tell you: Don't do this, don't copy. And I'm going to teach you ways in order to improve yourself and your answer by changing this wording. How can you change your introduction so it's different than what the question is? Okay? So, let's look at how to make these changes. Okay, so what we are going to do in order to change the question into a proper answer that doesn't just copy the question, is we are going to paraphrase. So, the word here is: "paraphrase". This might be a new word for you. What does it mean to paraphrase something? Well, when we paraphrase, it means we take a sentence that, you know... We take somebody else's sentence and we change it into our own words. Okay? So, we change the words of a sentence, we also change maybe the sentence structure, but we keep all the same meaning. Okay? So, the meaning from the sentence you copy, it stays the same, same meaning, but different words and different sentence structure. Okay? So it's in your words, but this other person's meaning. So, we are going to paraphrase this example of a question into our own words. So, first we're going to look at how to do that using vocabulary and synonyms. So, we have here the same question: "Education is the single most important factor in the development of a country." How can we put this into new words or our own words that keep the same meaning? Well, we can use synonyms. So, this might be a new word for you, too. A "synonym". "Synonyms" are words that have the same meaning, but are different words.
Sentence Structure: How to Write a Memorable Sentence І The Great Courses

Try a Free Trial of The Great Courses Plus and watch Building Great Sentences: Exploring the Writer's Craft here: https://www.thegreatcoursesplus.com/show/building_great_sentences_exploring_the_writers_craft?utm_source=US_OnlineVideo&utm_medium=SocialMediaEditorialYouTube&utm_campaign=136230 Recently, I asked the students in my Prose Style class to think of memorable first sentences from novels. The results were actually a little disappointing, as almost everyone in the class came up with the same two or three first sentences, but only a couple of students could think of more than that. Of course, "Call me Ishmael" made almost everyone's list. "This is the saddest story I have ever heard," the very revealing sentence with which John Dowell opens Ford Maddox Ford's The Good Soldier popped up on several lists. Not surprisingly, the one opening line everyone in the class remembered was "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times," that supremely balanced sentence that begins A Tale of Two Cities. Dickens made that opening so memorable by exploiting in just a few words almost all the strategies of syntactic balance: "It was the" before the comma is mirrored by "it was the" after the comma, and the fact that each clause starts with the same words exploits the classical rhetorical trope of anaphora. The first clause ends with "times," as does the second clause, exploiting the classical rhetorical trope of epistrophe, and that both first and last words of these two clauses are the same makes it an example of yet another rhetorical trope, symploce. The only difference between the first clause and the second clause is that the word best before the comma is changed to worst after the comma, creating a simple but effective antithesis. It's hard to imagine a more perfectly balanced sentence! What my students did not remember is that "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times" is not the first sentence of A Tale of Two Cities but is instead only the first of a string of balanced clauses and conceptual balances that combine to form a first sentence that keeps on going for 118 words. And Dickens doesn't stop there, following this superbly balanced long sentence with even more balances. There were a king with a large jaw and a queen with a plain face, on the throne of England; there were a king with a large jaw and a queen with a fair face, on the throne of France. In both countries it was clearer than crystal to the lords of the State preserves of loaves and fishes, that things in general were settled for ever. Dickens balances the English king with a large jaw against the French king with a large jaw, the English queen with a plain face against the French queen with a fair face, the throne of England against the throne of France. Then in the next sentence, he exploits the duple rhythm of clearer than crystal and the pairing of loaves and fishes and creates a subtle parallel between the three-word phrase things in genera" and the three-word phrase settled for ever. One can almost imagine Dickens performing these sentences, emphasizing their on the one hand/on the other hand structure with the regularity of a metronome: this/that, this/that, this/that. What makes this famous opening of Dickens's novel so memorable is variously referred to as its balanced form, or its extended parallelism. These two concepts exist in a kind of chicken-and-egg relationship: either balance is the heart of parallelism or parallelism is the heart of balance. It is easy to specify what makes a formally balanced sentence: A balanced sentence hinges in the middle, usually split by a semicolon, the second half of the sentence paralleling the first half, but changing one or two key words or altering word order. Dickens's first sentence in A Tale of Two Cities doesn't exactly fit the bill for a formally balanced sentence, but each of its seven initial paired clauses could, reminding us that sometimes a comma does the work of a semicolon in these constructions. But, while this sentence strings together a sequence of parallel balances, there are so many of them that we become more focused on the sentence's parallels than on each of its binary oppositions.
