Thurgood Marshall and Opposition to the Death Penalty
This week’s Paper of the Week on AcaDemon is paper #145206, “Thurgood Marshall and the Death Penalty”. This paper was selected as the Paper of the Week in honor of Justice Marshall, who became the first Black Supreme Court Justice in the US. The focus of the paper is the death penalty and Justice Marshall’s opposition to it. This analytical and well thought out paper examines Marshall’s position on the death penalty, his reasons and arguments for that position, and the opinions of the paper’s author regarding Marshall’s arguments. Our Power Your Document Podcast host, Dave, introduces us to this paper in this month’s PYD Podcast, Episode 46. So don’t miss Dave’s discussion or the paper!
All Things Relative…
Well, maybe not all things relative. Let’s just focus on the relative clause. That’s what Dave does in Section Two of PYD Episode 46. He provides a nice little explanation of relative clauses and relative pronouns, so be sure to check in and brush up on your grammar and writing skills in Section Two.
And, finally in Section Three, Dave tackles that word that no one can pronounce - onomatopoeia. That’s right - words that sound like the sound they are describing. Onomatopoeia, what they are, and how to use them, is the topic of Dave’s discussion in Segment Three of PYD Episode 46.
And to conclude this blog and fulfill Dave’s promise of a list of onomatopoetic words that are onomatopoetic in origin even though most of us would never guess that they were, here’s the list!
