Select a document famous in American political history (example: Thomas Jefferson's "Declaration of Independence," Abraham Lincoln's "Gettysburg Address," or John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Speech of 1960). Read the entire speech and then evaluate it (either in its entirety or using selected portions of it) according or Orwell's standards, especially as summarized in paragraph 26-31 and defended throughout the essay. Determine whether or not the speech you have examined is either a good or poor specimen of English prose according to Orwell's standards. Paragraph 26-31 (i) Never use a metaphor, simile, or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print. (ii) Never use a long word where a short one will do. (iii) If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out. (iv) Never use the passive where you can use the active. (v) Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent. .
