Before submitting a response here, on a separate sheet of paper–which I will check on Monday as part of your homework–paraphrase definitions for the following vocabulary words. They are: 1) importuning 2) sustenance 3) prodigious 4) misanthropic 5) deplorable 6) commodity 7) raiment 8) liable 9) per annum 10) papists 11) encumbrance 12) inducement 13) brevity 14) emulation 15) expedients 16) subsistence. These are this week’s vocabulary words. You will have a test Friday. 🙂
After you complete the vocabulary, read the introduction and Jonathan Swift’s “A Modest Proposal.” Then answer question two from page 401 here. Be sure to proofread for all of your current editing requirements (check your notes). Write your response according to what you know must be included. I suggest you handwrite your response before you type it.
