Composition on “Linguistics”

Most of us know the linguistic mystery “you can not pardon execution.” From where the comma will be put, in a literal sense, the life of a person depends. We’ll postpone after the “execution” – we will witness the tragedy, put after the “impossible” – save from death. This example demonstrates most clearly the relevance of using commas in writing.

Sometimes commas almost do not affect the meaning of the sentence, but make it more understandable and expressive. Just as in oral speech, we sing out the most important and important thing in voice, just as in a letter this grateful role is given by a comma. Consider this sentence: “It’s amazing how wonderful the beginning of the day when the sun just rises above the horizon, like a ripe orange.” If you remove all commas from this sentence, then the reader will have to run several times through it with his eyes, so that a meaningful text will turn out from a set of words.

Commas in writing are necessary to correctly convey the meaning of the statement and facilitate reading. They provide an opportunity to determine where to pause, and also indicate the end of a simple sentence as part of a complex one.

One of the priceless properties of the Russian language is the ability to convey the subtlest semantic nuances. Therefore, in our speech, we so often...use synonyms. Their abundance allows you to choose the exact word for the object, the sign, the action. Let’s try to prove the relevance of the use of synonyms for illustrative examples.

To begin with, you need to remember what synonyms are. These are the words of one part of speech, similar in their lexical meaning, but different in spelling / sound. They can form sufficiently long synonymous series (some are calculated in several dozen variants). Therefore, we can always choose the most suitable word that accurately conveys a certain connotation of meaning. For example, consider the possible synonyms for the word “complex”: intricate, ornate, ingenious, quirky, sophisticated, intricate, pretentious. Which of the following synonyms is best for describing a complex pattern of embroidery on clothes? I believe that it is “intricate”. And for a complex puzzle? I think that it is “intricate” or “cunning”.

In addition, synonyms adorn our speech. In order not to repeat the same word several times in the text, it is better to choose another one – close in meaning. Suppose, instead of “for example” in this sentence, I just used a different introductory word. As well as “other” replaced “other” – and all within a single paragraph.

It can be concluded that synonyms allow you to convey the subtlest shades of values, and also help to avoid repeating the same word in the text.
