Euphemism and Quotes
As I was reading the use and misuse section on pg. 56 of the "genteelism" the tone seemed to be what is redefined in the newswriting world. We angle to use more precise words that grab the reader that shorting delema and substites as jargon. We only use euphemisms on the bases of " used to doll up an emotionally stark but otherwise unexceptional fact of the human condition. You want to balance and tone which can be a struggle. I found it interesting the relationship of words that are used in the instead of one another such as expecting for pregnant.
Hmm I would just use pregnant! Note: it is also stated that you can lead into a bad habit with the force of style and tone. You must let "Fine Writng" do it's thing. Listen and Understand the balance.
Quotations are my favorite thing. Do I have fun with them? I have a field day with them.
It was really helpful to read and understand the basics of quotations. I found the section on Expltive Deleted to find a fine line between profanity, vulgarity, and obscenity. The society has become alot more involved with the the usage of the terms and words that are inapproriate. Though what do you think about the allowance of obscence language in theaters, music, film, public eye? In regards to newspaper personally I think it is great that they don't use such terms. Also, while reading I found that is good AP policy to avoid the casual profanity and vulgarisms. Though the exceptions very from newpaper to newspaper.
Do you think that in future writing that newspapers will have a bigger allowance of direct quote in the freedom of speech to direct quote? I mean of course theres regualtion but this day an age at this point it is hard to tell.
