Please write your name and Quiz 2 at the top of your paper. Then, for each of the following passages, identify one of the features of language discussed in class that occurs in the passage. Be sure to explain your answer. Each question is worth 2 points:
  1. From a newspaper headline, "Tiger Woods plays with own balls, Nike says."
  2. Don’t say ‘vomit’, that word is disgusting. I prefer, “involuntary personal protein spill.”
  3. A Worm-eating Warbler was discovered by Hazel Miller in Concord, while walking along the branch of a tree, singing, and in good view. That’s our Hazel—surefooted, happy, and with just a touch of the exhibitionist.
  4. From an ad, "New Furniture at a Fraction of the Original Price!!"
  5. The lure of imaginary totality is momentarily frozen before the dialectic of desire hastens on within symbolic chains.
