A portmanteau is a large suitcase. By extension, a portmanteau word is one that packs two meanings into one word: brunch (breakfast and lunch); smog (smoke and fog); slithy (slippery and lithe); slanguage (slang and language) Portmanteau words are also called "blend words" and "telescope words."
I've seen obituaries in the newspapers. As I noticed, it includes the anouncement of death, of somebody's death, often with a short biography. It is also includes the mass offering schedule, interment schedule and sometimes a little thank you note or a message from the bereaved family for those who condoled.
English is not a tonal language like Chinese, so rising and falling tones depend more on the context and on the emotions the sentence is trying to express. For example: Why did you do this to me? The emphasis when saying it would be on "why" and then on "do." But it could also be on "me" if the person asking thinks other people were treated better and only the speaker was treated unfairly: Why did you do this to ME? The same with a sentence like How may I help you? There is emphasis on the word "How" and also on "help." But if a sentence is not conveying any emotion, you may find there is no special emphasis on the question word: What are you reading? (The emphasis ends up on the last word-- "reading.") When will we have lunch? (Again, the emphasis is on the last word, "lunch"). Sometimes the question word will be said in a questioning tone of voice, but this is not always the case. Most listeners understand that a question is being asked because they hear the question words (who, what, why, etc).
If English is not your first language, I would advise that you go to a website where you can hear English spoken, and it will become very clear which tones are used when asking a question, and which words receive emphasis. I enclose a link to a very useful site at the Voice of America.
== == It is "Goldilocks and the Three Bears". That story has missing porridge, broken chairs, and messy beds!
I read in a book about dr.suess that it is pronounced Guyzel
what is different between poems and expository
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by dialect.But it is not old english.It is very plain oout modern easy to read book for teens as long as you have a good vocabulary and reading comprehenion you will be fine.
You can consider the dialect to be of a middle-aged conservative LDS woman. Also it can be known as 'thesaurus rape' but more commonly called purple prose.

The term for a miser or skinflint is correctly spelled scrooge, from the Dickens character Ebenezer Scrooge. It may or may not be capitalized Scrooge, depending on style.
It is used as one word.
people rember him because he wrote books and bought a joy to
Niccolo Machiavelli is best know for a book he wrote entitled "The Prince." It is examined as a political treatise from a time when there were many princes ruling their own regions of a greater nation, each vying for their own chance to rule the whole. The book is infamous for his very cold, callous and ruthless approach toward dealing with the rival princes surrounding him.
The Japanese language originated in Japan around 400 CE, but it was a combination of several things from outside sources. The ancient Emishi (Jomon) people, who were thought to have spoken an Austric language, made a contribution; the Ainu were Uralics who joined the Emishi.
The Kumaso and the Hayato of ancient Kyushu were a combination of Emishi and Polynesians (from Guam and Luzon, but the Hayato were from the Ryukyus), and gave Japanese its Polynesian look.
From Shandong and Jiangsu, the Altaic Jiuli people (Dongyi) moved to Kyushu and started the Japanese Imperial House (Himiko said she was descended from Duke Tai of Zhou). Some of the people of the Korean kingdoms of Gaya and Paekche (the Kofun culture) invaded Japan.
Some say Japanese is closest to the extinct Altaic language of Buyeo, which was spoken in northern Korea. All in all, Japanese can be described as a mixture of Old Korean, Polynesian, and Austric Emishi.
The Japanese did.
No one 'invents' languages--not ones that an entire country uses, at least. No one can say exactly when the spoken language of Japanese first came to be, of course, but the earliest written Japanese text is dated at about the early 8th century.
In Japan of course. But Chinese widely influences it from hundreds of years ago. And now English plays a big part in the vocabulary. But (arguably) it started (originated) from Japan.
Nobody made the Japanese language. It evolved naturally from earlier ancestral languages.
The newspaper reported on the recent deaths.
Jane austen was a very famous author in the 19th century. Her work included pride and prejudice, sense and sensibility, mansfield park, Emma etc. Austen died in 1817.
Many people say it like Vo-shur-e or the Vol-chur-e Well that's not right. It's actually pronounced VOL-2-RE it's a long e with the line over it
== == When there are two or more words that are spelled the same and have different pronunciations or meanings, they are called heteronyms.

The Inchcape rock is based on the idiom "What goes around comes around" or even "Tit for Tat"! the poem speaks about a huge and perilous rock , known as the Inchcape rock near the coast of Scotland . During sunny days it could be easily noticed but during a storm , the ships would meet their death because of it .
To solve this problem, the Abbot of Aberbrothok placed a bell upon this rock. The bell would be heard loud and clear during a storm & hence worn the sailors that the fatal Inchcape rock was near .
Now a pirate called Sir Ralph The Rover enters the story. The bell was a great disadvantage for him because he looted the ships that were wrecked by the Inchcape rock. So one day he decided to cut the bell from the rock. He was very happy now since there was no bell there was a lot more loot !
Soon he was very rich and came back near the shore of Scotland.It was a very stormy day . There was a thick haze, a strong gale and it was nearing nighttime. It was so dark that they could not see land . Sir Ralph tried to give his sailors courage by saying that the moon would soon appear and that they would be able to see .
However, they still cant see and everybody wishes they could hear the Inchcape bell . The ship soon strikes the rock and everybody is in despair . Sir Ralph was cursing himself as the ship was sinking beneath the tide .
Even as he was dying , Ralph could hear one dreadful sound . It was as if it was the warning sound of the Inchcape bell, it was as if it was the sound of the Devil ringing his knell.
(btw the knell is the sound that signifies death, disaster or more importantly - the end of something)
what is the plot of the story of shadow and solitude

Planes don't fly.
Planes are woodworking tools, used primarily to smooth rough timber.
Aircraft, on the other hand, do fly.
They do so by utilising nature's abhorrence of a vacuumn.
Simply put, as an aircraft is pushed forward, air flows over and under its wings.
A basic wing, or aerofoil, is flat underneath and curved on top.
As air flows over & under the aerofoil, the air flowing over the upper surface has to travel further, because of the curve.
As nature dislikes differential pressures so much, both the air flowing over the wing and the air flowing under it have to arrive at the rear - or trailing - edge of the wing at the same time.
In order to do this, and because of that curved upper surface, the airflow passing over the wing travels faster than the air flowing under it.
If the air flowing over the wing is travelling faster than the airflow beneath the wing, the pressure of the air over the wing decreases.
Again, with nature disliking differences in pressure so much and with lower pressure over the wing than under it, the net result is a lifting force - which we'll call Lift - which actually supports the wing, thus anything attached to it.
And if you can increase the forward speed of your wing, to a point where this Lift force overcomes the weight of the wing and the airframe it's attached to, the whole aircraft becomes airborne...
be carefull of what you are doing just like the father of lam-ang. Because of her carelesness just a lettle goinf to fall.
For one we have people that do not live within their means. They think life is a magical place where everything revolves around them. We also have the knight in shining armour syndrome, where the girls believe everything that prince charming is telling them and get tossed over for the next beauty. Then we also have the truism of good and evil which I dont think classical fairy tales began but they sure do make people believe that once the evil witch/wizard is dead, we all live happily ever after.Our destiny is of our own making and cannot be written in a book.
