Persuasive Essays

If you are required to write persuasive essays, you should start with the choice of the topic and initial research.  Why do you need to do the research?  Research gives you an opportunity to enrich your knowledge of the topic and expand your understanding of the opposing views. Follow this simple guide for writing persuasive essays:

Step 1:  Choose the specific topic (abortion or marijuana are not specific topics; while legalization of marijuana is)

Step 2:  Conduct the thorough research (one article published somewhere in the personal blog online is not the thorough research; read at least 5-6 articles from reliable sources)

Step 3: Decide on your position regarding the topic (will you support or oppose the debated issue? Why?)

Step 4:  Write down the plan (organize your thoughts logically; better if thematically starting with the strongest argument)

Step 5: Start writing your persuasive essay!

The most successful tongue of the a priori type came in 1817, and was the creation of the Frenchman Jean-Fran?ois Sudre. It was called Langue Musicale Universelle, or Solresol, and was based on the international names of the musical notes, all words being formed out of combinations of the syllables do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, si. Statistically, these combinations would yield 7 words of one syllable, 49 of two, 336 of three, 2,268 of four, 9,072 of five, which was as far as Sudre cared to go. Shifts of accent from one syllable to another would then yield the possibility of changing the function of a word from noun to verb or adjective or adverb. Sudre further pointed out that his syllables could be abbreviated to their initial consonant for purposes of speedwriting, using s for si and so for sol; that the language could be sung or played or hummed instead of spoken; that it could be written as music; that knocks, or even colors, could be substituted for the syllables for communication at a distance, as by flags; that it could be used by deaf-mutes, who would tap their message. Sudre's vocabulary was, naturally enough, completely arbitrary, although a principle of classification according to thought appeared, with do standing for man, moral or physical, dodo indicating a subclass, dododo a subclass of the subclass; but the logical classification obviously breaks down as the composition of the word becomes more complex. Of the seven original monosyllables, do stands for "not," si for "yes" (a concession to some of the Romance languages, perhaps?), re for "and," mi for "or," sol for "if." But dore is "I," domi is "you," redo is "my," doredo is "time," and doresol is "month." Some attempt is made to show opposites by reversing the order of syllables: domisol for "God," solmido for "Satan"; sollasi for "go up," silasol for "go down." A phrase like "I don't love" is "dore do milasi." The grammar of Solresol, as one might expect, is quite complicated. The plan, first conceived in 1817, was presented to the Academy of Fine Arts in 1827, and gained wide acceptance, being sponsored by such figures as Victor Hugo, Lamartine, Humboldt, and Napoleon III. Sudre died in 1862, but his language continued to find followers, such as Gajewski, who published a book about it as late as 1902. Even on the eve of the First World War, despite the Volap?k and Esperanto that had appeared in the intervening years, devotees of Solresol continued to air their views.
