28/12/2012 Grade 8 Language Assignment

Updates: In the past two weeks, we have analysed the themes and styles used in the ‘Old Man and the Sea’ preceded by sensory description/writing activity(writing using five senses), striven to write an ode to our favorite fruits and vegetables. We are currently working on understanding the connotations and denotation with a view to understanding the characters of the reader as well as author’s writing style with precision.

Task type: non research based

Date of submission: 02/01/2013

Activity: Understanding Connotation and Denotation

Note: You’ll require a dictionary and your reader “Old Man and the Sea” to accomplish this assignment.

Find out substantial adjectives/nouns/similes used for the characters- Marlin, Manolin, Santiago and the Sharks from the reader; which you think are not used in a literal sense (there are other meanings/perspectives attached). Then classify and analyse them as prescribed:

Adjective/Noun/Simile Denotation Connotation(s) Positive/negative
Eg. Salao Comes from the Spanish word salado means salty, bitter the worst form of unlucky Negative connotation

So don’t miss this opportunity and send your entries latest by 4th JAN. Looking forward to seeing you at the camps.

Best Regards
