Week 4, Post A

1.) Vocabulary:

Fastidious- excessively particular, critical, or demanding; hard to please. Page 114

Eclectic- not following any one system, as of philosophy, medicine, etc., but selecting and using what are considered the best elements of all systems. Page 114

2.) Figurative Language:

Simile- "...his legs as thick as his arms were thin, getting him around the ice as fast as just about anyone," (page 114). This is a Simile because it's comparing two different things, with like attributes.

Onomatopeoia- "...and a sudden 'zoom!' was heard from the blistering shot of Ramsey..." (Page 121). This is an Onomatopeoia because it's a sound being described from a shot by Ramsey.

Quote- "You went to High School and hoped to get a job in the factory and then 25 years later, you would be counting down the days to retirement," (page 123). This is significant because it's a reaction of a player to another player.
One Emerging Theme- An emerging theme is the rest of the Gold Medal game between U.S.A. and the Soviets.

I voted on your two polls. I picked the Senators and Oatmeal Raisin cookies. Cool picture of the fighters.

Keep up the good work.
