October 31 – Sleep Tracking

Posted on Wednesday, October 31, 2012 in Sleep

If this is how I sleep, there’s no wonder I feel like shit when I wake up. I hardly get any deep sleep before Mia moves and I stir to check on her. This sucks. I can’t wait to get more data to compare.

Expository essay snippet

Posted on Sunday, October 21, 2012 in Linguistics

Chapter 4 of Schleppegrell discusses expository essays and describes them as a genre “through which writers present a point of view and support it with examples and evidence.” (Schleppegrell, p. 88).

Expository essays are characterized by an introduction that orients the reader with the position the writers sets out to explain, the essay’s purpose. This is done with a thesis statement. The body of the text is used to develop the thesis and elaborate it through examples that are generalizable and specific. The essay is finalized with a conclusion that summarizes the main points the essay argued. (p. 90) Schleppegrell further defines this structure, or macrostructure, as one of “foreshadowing, arguing, and summing up.” (p. 90)
