This book of One-Liners is the third in the '501' series. It contains a selection of one line thoughts and ponderings, many of which are amusing and some of which are profound. This offering is aimed mainly at writers and authors as a reminder pad of situations and observations seen through the eyes of someone with a sense of humor, or someone who has taken the trouble to actually sit on that mountain peak ... somewhere, and think! The format is similar to '501 Writers Useful Phrases' and '501 More Writers Useful Phrases' in that the content is divided into ten sections with 50 'one liners' in each section and 51 in the final section. If this little book does nothing more than bring a smile to your face at three o'clock in the morning, slaving tirelessly over the ending of Chapter Four, after a full day of looking after the kids or holding down a high pressure job for ten hours, then it will have been worth it. However, if only one of the offerings within these pages jogs a memory button, allowing you to construct that searched for finished phrase, then this can only be considered a bonus. If you like this latest production in the '501' series, then why not catch up with the other two? Hopefully, you the reader ... and more importantly, you the writer, will gain something from this latest edition of phrases, sayings and one-liners. It will hopefully make a great reference alongside the other two '501' books in the series, not only at the initial manuscript stage in the production of your next epic novel, but at the tough edit stage where just one small phrase adjustment can make all the difference to flow, pace, excitement and character definition. Good Luck!

ESL Readers and Writers in Higher Education describes the challenges ESL students in U.S. postsecondary institutions face when studying in a second language, and offers suggestions for how teachers, advisors, tutors, and institutions might provide support that meets the reading and writing needs of this very important student population. Because the ESL profession as a whole, including what professionals are doing in the classroom, sits under the umbrella of an institutional response to a language-related challenge, some solutions aimed at helping students achieve optimal proficiency lie outside of the classroom. As such, this book is based on the assertion that language development support is not the sole responsibility of language teachers. Everyone on campuses that hosts ESL students bears some responsibility for these students' language development. Chapters are therefore, intentionally adapted to appeal to a wide variety of readers from classroom teachers, and teachers in training, to admissions officers, academic advisors, and international student advisors.

The Scott, Foresman Handbook for Writers, 6e continues its tradition of innovation with ground-breaking coverage of grading, service learning, document design, and research. Already the most imitated book in its field, SFH/6e becomes the first handbook to offer a full chapter on "Evaluating Writing," covering both traditional and portfolio systems of grading. The new chapter answers many of the questions about grading principles, criteria and procedures that instructors face every term. There's more, too, in this edition about the kinds of writing more and more college writers are doing in their professional and civic lives or in service-learning courses. Already a leader in technology, SFH now expands its first-ever treatment of document design into a fully illustrated section that explains document design as a process like writing itself. There's a thorough new chapter with full coverage of Writing for the Web and a portfolio chapter of four-color model documents. Coverage of research continues to set the standard for college projects with new material on designing research projects, evaluating sources, and working with online materials. A series of "E-tips" here and throughout the volume directs writers to helpful online materials to enhance their thinking and research. But the edition has not neglected more traditional elements of writing. Every chapter has been reworked to enhance clarity and to polish the notably friendly style of SFH. No handbook addresses writers more cordially or helpfully. A new, cleaner design makes all materials more accessible and frequent photos and images make the entire package more student friendly. Now updated to include the latest information on APA documentation style.

Vague words, like "tall," "rich," and "old," lack clear boundaries of application: no clear line divides the tall people from the above average, or the old people from the middle-aged. Because they lack clear boundaries, these ordinary words cause logical and semantic problems in various disciplines including philosophy, decision theory, and the law. Philosophers and linguists have proposed several theories of vagueness to handle these difficulties, but none has been widely accepted. Raffman contends that virtually all previous treatments of vagueness have made two crucial mistakes: they have supposed that a semantic (non-epistemic) theory must abandon bivalence, and they have paid insufficient attention to the character of ordinary speech using vague words. She develops a new theory of vagueness-the multiple range theory-that corrects both of these errors. The new theory begins with the observation that ordinary speakers seem to apply vague words in multiple arbitrarily different but equally competent ways, even when all contextual factors are held fixed. Raffman interprets this feature of their use as evidence of multiple ranges of application in the semantics of vague words, where a range of application is a range of properties whose instances satisfy the word in question; for example, a range of application of "tall" is a range of heights, a range of "old" a range of ages, and so forth. The fundamental idea is that a vague word has multiple ranges of application, and applies to things relative to those ranges, even given a single fixed context. The fact that the ranges of a vague word are arbitrarily different-there is no reason to favor any particular one-is key to solving the notorious sorites paradox. The multiple range theory preserves bivalence and is more intuitive than other approaches. It is also simpler; for instance, it has no need of a definiteness operator, and it rules out the possibility of higher-order borderline cases, both of which introduce severe complications into other accounts. Some of the evidence Raffman draws upon in constructing her theory comes from a new psychological study of the way ordinary speakers actually use vague words.
