Why do you think the ivy leaves meant so much to Johnsy?
Weegy: The Last Leaf of the ivy vine had the power to sustain Johnsy's life and Berhman had the power to sustain the last leaf by creating it. [ This art gave Johnsy the power to sustain her 'hope' to live and indeed, until hope persists, The last leaf is the symbol of 'hope' that empowers a person for having the strength to fight death. Johnsy's believe that the last leaf would make her life too cease with its fall was so firm that no miraculous drug could save her against her rigidity. Behrman's wait for the right time to make his master-piece that he had fancied for so long was over the moment he realized that he had the ability to save a life by inflicting 'hope' in that person's mind. ] (More)

A young woman from a small town in the Ozarks (where she spoke the regional dialect of the area) goes to college and becomes a manager of a major bank in Boston. Years later, she returns to her home town for a visit, using exclusively Standard American English. Her old friends reject her and find her snobbish. Using what you know about language deviation, why do you think this occurred? Answer in complete sentences.
Weegy: Well, I would assume that they perceived her as rejecting them and their (formerly her) culture. They probably thought that she was putting on airs by talking in a "better" way that they couldn't, or pretending that she actually was better. [ IDK, you're that one talking the class, right? Use that and put into your own words using the class format. ] (More)

From your working definition of "language," is the commonly referred-to concept of "body language" really a language? Why or why not? Answer in complete sentences.
Weegy: This depends on your definition of language... [ If the criteria for a language is that "a language must have differing audible sounds that convey different meanings depending on how the sounds interrelate that is also generally understood by the speakers and listeners of the group" then "no" sign language is not a language.

In what sense is language arbitrary? Answer in complete sentences.
Weegy: The U.S. linguists Bernard Bloch and George L. [ Trager formulated the following definition: “A language is a system of arbitrary vocal symbols by means of which a social group cooperates.” With respect to linguistics, refers to the fact that the sounds of words typically have no relationship to their meanings. There is no relationship between the sounds associated with the word and the physical object or action that the word signifies. For example, there is no natural reason why a MAN should be associated with / m n / in English or [mesa] in Spanish. In terms of grammar, there are many different strategies possible for marking the relationship between the different nouns of a sentence. The order in which we place words within a sentence is also arbitrary and it is not based on any natural reasoning, but depends on how languages have naturally evolved. ] (More)
