Formal Essay

Your second formal essay incorporates a dictionary definition of any word of your choosing, followed by a detailed example of what you believe the word means (whether you agree or disagree with the definition). This essay is worth 10 points – 5 points for formatting, 5 points for content. You MUST use the Oxford English Dictionary as your source. The OED is available online through the UCL (library site): From the BC home page, under “Student Resources” near the TOP LEFT on that drop-down menu under “Academic Services,” select Library from the menu. On the LEFT of the Library page, click on “Locations and Hours” Click on the title “University/College Library” Under the title “Finding Articles,” click on “Databases by Title” On the blue alphabet bar near the top middle, click on “O” Scroll down to Oxford English Dictionary – click on it This will prompt you to sign in with your ID/password Click on blue bar “Go to Database” You are there – look up your word. Be sure to choose the definition that you believe is most appropriate to your essay. As always, when using exact words from a source, you MUST use a signal phrase and include the dictionary definition in “quotes.” Furthermore, in this case you must use this attribution phrase: According to the Oxford English Dictionary,… The word you are defining goes in italics in the sentence where you give the definition (but nowhere else). You must also include a detailed explanation of an incident of stereotyping (a concrete example). This essay must follow the correct format (see page 8 of your course reader) – it must be typed with a heading, pagination, an original title, double spaced, proper paragraph indentations, and be in Standard Written English (no abbreviations, text-speak, misspellings, or grammar errors), and be at least ONE fully developed paragraph, but no longer than ONE page. SAMPLE: Being a Nerd Most people have been subjected to stereotyping at some point in their lives. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word stereotype means “a preconceived and oversimplified idea of the characteristics which typify a person, situation, etc.” In my case, being stereotyped as a nerd has had some disadvantages; specifically, it has impaired my social life. I have been thought of as too studious, which people associated with being boring. Some have even avoided talking to me because they didn’t want to be considered a nerd by association, as if being a nerd were some kind of disease. The most notable example of my impaired social life was the junior prom. At my school, the prom was the most important social event; everyone went, and all went accompanied. I hadn’t realized how far down in the social pecking order I was until just a week or so before the big event. I was the only person I knew who didn’t have plans to go and hadn’t been asked by anyone. I discretely inquired around to learn that even the bottom-feeding boys had gone elsewhere rather than ask me; even the one guy in the class who never had dates—tall, dorky-looking, with big ears and a devastating case of acne – had gone across town to the local Catholic girls’ school for his date. Needless to say, I missed the prom; however, I look forward to the day when my intelligence will be equated with being an interesting person worth getting to know, a different stereotype altogether.
