ENC 1102 everythings an argument with reading


A)– re: from The Power of Words

This essay focuses on both denotation and connotation (with an emphasis on the effects of connotation). The writers give examples of both euphemism and dictionary definition when examining the language used by the United States government while detaining Japanese Americans during World War II and its aftermath. The essay explores why such language was used and the effects it had on how people thought about the treatment of Japanese Americans.

Use the Summary Table of Accurate Terms on p.674 as a source for denotative terms that can be substituted for the euphemisms used in the source article. Apply the replacement denotative terms to ONE of the sections of the article, replacing the euphemisms used by the government to make the position more palatable to the reader.

WRITE a brief explanation (one paragraph will do) of how the original language did change the impact of the announcement, and how the more accurate term gives a different impact. Include an opinion of why a writer would use euphemisms to influence a reader to accept a position that might be otherwise less acceptable.
