linguistics relativity

This assignment requires reading. The reading is attached. Also, the guideline is also attached. You can find the readings in google too for better quality. There are three different topics that you can write about, you can chose anyone you like. Also, you might not need to read all the reading. However, it is important to show that you have read the readings in the essay. A) In the essay "Politics and the English Language", George Orwell writes In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible. Discuss some of the techniques used to 'defend the indefensible' - those considered by Orwell and those we considered in class. Be as specific as you can; discuss as many particular examples as you can. It might be useful to look again at "Standard English and the Complaint Tradition", by Milroy and Milroy. Make sure to relate your essay in some detail to the concepts of linguistic relativity discussed in class. B) What does Deborah Cameron (supplemental reading) mean by 'verbal hygiene'? Be as precise as you can, and cite as many examples as you can. Much of what Cameron discusses is commonly known as 'PC speak'. Talk to your friends and relatives about 'PC speak'. How do they understand this notion? (Do they give examples?) What emerges from this talk? Does this topic elicit any derision, annoyance, or anger? Any other reactions? Why do you think this is? In your opinion, are the feelings justified? Make sure to relate your essay in some detail to the concepts of linguistic relativity discussed in class. C) Assess linguistic re-appropriation. In class we mentioned that some groups are attempting to reappropriate or reclaim words historically used against them. Give a description of how this movement originated and what it's goals are. Critically assess these goals in terms of linguistic determinism and relativity.
