[SOLVED] Describing childhood experiences

[SOLVED] Describing childhood experiences

Essay of Definition
Length: approximately five hundred words
Format: typed, double-spaced

THIS ESSAY SHOULD BE ENTIRELY IN YOUR OWN WORDS (except for the dictionary definition you quote).

The dictionary tells us only so much about a word. Can you describe the meaning of a word as you understand it? In “Love Is a Fallacy,” Max Shulman defines love as unrelated to logic. Stephen Jay Gould emphasizes the hazards of defining animal behavior according to human characteristics or principles. Dick Gregory defines “Shame” by describing childhood experiences and their consequences. In “On Morality,” Joan Didion presents her own definition of “morality,” and she argues that presenting political objectives as “moral imperatives” is dangerous to society.
For this essay, you should define a word according to your perception of its meaning. Please provide a definition from the Merriam Webster.com Dictionary somewhere in your essay, and please include an entry for the dictionary on your Works Cited page. Instructions will be provided in class. In your essay, you can elaborate upon the dictionary definition, expand upon it, and possibly even refute it. Feel free to include examples, narration, comparison and contrast, or any other rhetorical strategy you believe will help you achieve your goal, which should be to present a clear, organized, coherent, and complete definition of your chosen word. Remember, your paper should be argumentative; you must attempt to convince your reader that your view of the chosen word is the “right” one.
Please consider the possibilities listed below. You do not have to choose from this list, but thinking critically about the different ways of defining some of these words might help. Can you stipulate the necessary characteristics associated with one of these words?

friendship fair
morality ethical
right sportsmanship
wrong justice
appropriate wisdom
inappropriate courage
conservative honor
liberal art
love freedom
professional beauty
simplicity fame
dignity compassion
You will be evaluated according to your sentence structure, your handling of mechanical aspects such as capitalization and punctuation, your clarity of expression, and your paragraphing.
