How Shakespearean are you? | OxfordWords blog - 0 views

  • The words of Shakespeare are still held, nearly 400 years after his death, to be some of the most poetic ever written and his influence on modern English is indisputable. Contributions such as pound of flesh (Merchant of Venice) and green-eyed monster (Othello) are fairly well-known, but did you know that he was the first person to use the adjectives misplaced (from King Lear) or neighbouring (Henry IV, Part 1); or the adverbs obscenely (Love’s Labour’s Lost)  or out of work (Henry V)?
  • Enter some English text in the box below and click the button. Your words will be compared with all the words used by Shakespeare in his plays and our verdict will be delivered on its Shakespearean content. Why not paste song lyrics or dialogue from your favourite television show into the box to see how much overlap there is with Shakespeare’s English?

What's New, or What's Good: On Writing Connectively | Digital Is ... - 0 views

  • At its core, connective writing is the idea that digital writers using digital writing tools create an inherently different kind of writing.  This collection is an attempt to unpack the idea of connective writing, show what it might look like in practice, and explore whether, in fact, it is new and different, or an extension of what's come before.

These results reinforce findings from NWP's 2007 Survey on Teaching Writing (PDF), which confirmed that the American public believes good writing skills are more important than ever. The NWP survey also found that teachers and parents believe computers and other new technologies have a more positive than negative effect on helping students develop strong writing skills.
  • "As writing skills have become more important than ever in this age of e-mail, instant messaging, and texting, NWP teachers are keeping up with the times by using technology to improve their students' writing abilities."
