In any content writing assignment or article, you need to take care of three things -

1) Emotions: Readers like your creation only when they can relate to it emotionally at some level. Higher the emotional engagement, more are the chances that your writing would be appreciated.

2) Human story - Irrespective of the channel you use, style of capture, the topic you write on, the ultimate objective is to communicate with people. People make the primary actors and thus the involvement and consideration is of prime importance. Creating a story that has human involvement gives you an edge as your readers would be able to visualise and relate to their experiences through your content.

3) Curiosity - Your writing should provoke the reader into thinking such that after reading, they should ask questions to themselves - what is happening? How does it work? Why is it like that? When did it happen? Where did it happen? Etc.

How to use these essentials?

1) Emotions: We need to generate many feelings in people through numerous articles in a blog so that people can relate and connect with us in various ways. Once they feel many emotions with us, they think compared to us and are more open to listening to us when we are selling.

If you have a friend who takes care of you (love emotion), fights with you (anger), does your work (comfort), you feel more connected with him, and whenever you look for buying a new cell phone, you would take the views of this person.

Just the same way, you need to connect with your audience.

An example of how emotions can be generated in a bland research material

Research says, “Indians take only 4297 steps daily while Americans walk more with over 6880 steps taken daily.”

Emotional Appeal, “Indians among laziest people in the world” - you may be

Upset or irritated - why are we so lazy?

Or angry - how can they call us lazy

2) Human Story - We spoke to a manager in a big

The writer in the case of the article mentioned above used a positive story about an Indian.

Story: Delhi-based dietician Ritika Samaddar suggests at least 10,000 steps a day to remain fit, "People feel that if they have walked for an hour in the morning, they have got their share of physical exercise done. But you need to be active throughout the day."

3) Curiosity?

Ex. 232% obesity increase for females versus 67% increase for males.

Will, you do not have the curiosity to read on if you are a woman?

 

Exercise for you:

Take this topic: Understanding the impact of communication technologies on customer retention

Now think of communication technologies and customer retention as keywords, and answer the following questions -

Who is your audience?________________________________________________________

Write your Answer here: (Hint: Identify age, gender, occupation, education, designation, & interests)

What emotions can you use with your audience?___________________________________

Write your Answer here: (Hint: Identify their pain points)

Can you think of a human story around communication technologies and customers?______

Write your Answer here: (Hint: Imagine a customer using a communication technology)

Can you make your readers curious about something?_______________________________

Write your Answer here: (Hint: Think what can make you curious if you were in the place of the audience)

 

What content can you think of covering in the article after knowing your audience, their emotions, and unique ideas?

Write your Answer here: (Hint: Think facts, stories, figures, content, ideas, etc.)

Ivanka Trump launches 'Complicit' a word of the year:

Dictionary.com is a web portal dedicated to English language. Every day they come up with a word of the day. This website closely work with the development of English language and current developments in writing in press, periodicals, books and other material.

Yesterday they have declared 'complicit' as its word of the year.

Complicit: The particular word is used by Ivanka Trump for the fragrance she launched. Scarlett Johansson in a glittery gold dress launched it. The other developments like, Russian election influence, the ever-widening sexual harassment scandal, mass shootings and the opioid epidemic increased the use of the word "complicit”. Dictionary.com then chosen it the word of the year for 2017.

Lexicographer Jane Solomon told revels the meaning, "This year a conversation that keeps on surfacing is what exactly it means to be complicit," she further added, “Complicit has sprung up in conversations about those who speak out against powerful figures in institutions, and those who stay silent."

March 12. "Saturday Night Live" launched the sketch starring Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka Trump in a glittery gold dress peddling a fragrance called "Complicit" as it reveals "She's beautiful, she's powerful, she's complicit."

I remember a quote of David Crystal, “A feature of English that makes it different compared with all other languages is its global spread” I remember he used it in the preface of his book, ‘‘Stories of English’ David Crystal. He goes further and explains how English is spread across the globe and how it’s form, syntax is different from each other. Sir David Crystal is lexicographer of Cambridge encyclopedia and is the only senior most authority alive today.

I wonder if other languages also practice the same thing, they will get enriched and will remain in use for more years. Else the touch screen reality and ever changing diction will make any established language irrelevant within 10 years.

Surprisingly on April 5, Ivanka, Solomon said. It was the day after she appeared on "CBS This Morning" and told Gayle King, among other things: "I don't know what it means to be complicit."

The other development on Oct. 24, Arizona Republican Jeff Flake harshly criticizing President Donald Trump and urging other members of the party not to stand silently with the president. He used 'complicit' word as follow.

"I have children and grandchildren to answer to, and so, Mr. President, I will not be complicit," Flake said.

I soon will be writing on the words which have become absolute in 2017. As this year has been a year of heavy political turmoil and political upheaval like never before. This year also is the year when many writers surfaced their talent in writing in revival style. The movies, music, dance, drama, public relations, advertising and political arena went on revivalism raga.

As fashion changes every season and so do the language. Let us get updated with in vogue new terminologies.

Out-Of-Use Words In 2017

As we are approaching the fag-end of the year 2017, it is time to take a look back at language.

Every year when we read news paper new words are added and some old words are removed from use.

The devout news paper readers observe it with relish. They hone their language with razor sharp usage of words. They are the people who win the hearts during public speaking.

We can call them the lost words in English during year 2017

1. Ambodexter, n: One who takes bribes from both sides

2. Betrump, v: To deceive, cheat; to elude: This particular word is used this year by only The Asian Age in India and Spectator in west. This is used for the news from US and Latin US.

3. Coney-catch, v: To swindle, cheat, deceive

4. Hugger-mugger, n, adj, and adv: Concealment, secrecy; clandestinely

5. Nickum, n: A cheating or dishonest person

6. Quacksalver, n: A person who dishonestly claims knowledge of medicine

7. Rouker, n: A person who whispers or spreads rumors, this particular word is used this year the most acclaimed daily The Asian Age and spectator in west.

8. Man-millinery, adj: Suggestive of male vanity or pomposity

9. Parget, v: To daub the face or body with powder or paint

10. Snout-fair, adj: Fair-faced, comely, handsome

11. Slug-a-bed, n: One who lies long in bed through laziness

12. Losenger, n: A false flatterer, a lying rascal, a deceiver

13. Momist, n: A person who habitually finds fault; a harsh critic,

14. Peacockize, v: To pose or strut ostentatiously

15. Percher, n: An ambitious or self-assertive person

16. Rouzy-bouzy, adj: Boisterously drunk

17. Ruff, v: To swagger, bluster, domineer.

18. Sillytonian, n: A silly or gullible person

19. Wlonk, adj + n: Proud, haughty; splendid

20. Fumish, adj: Hot-tempered, irascible, passionate

21. Awhape, v: To amaze, stupefy with fear

22. Hugge, v: To shake with fear or with cold

23. Merry-go-sorry, n: A mixture of joy and sorrow

24. Stomaching, adj: Given to cherish anger or resentment

25. Swerk, v: To become dark or gloomy

26. Teen, v: To vex, irritate, annoy, anger

27. Tremblable, adj: Causing dread or horror

28. Wasteheart, int: Used to express grief, pity, regret

29. Dowsabel, n: Sweetheart, ‘lady-love’

30. Ear-rent, n: Figurative cost of listening to trivial talk

Unfamiliar they may be now but at least one could be returning to modern use as part of a campaign to highlight how long-lost words are still relevant today.

These 30 words are selected by language experts at the University of York as being ripe for revival. Senior Lecturer Dominic Watt and his research team spent three months scouring historic texts and etymological dictionaries to create the list.

They are grouped into themes which Dr Watt in Forensic Speech Science at the University of York, he undertakes forensic phonetic casework on a part-time basis.  Dr Watt co-designed and delivers the MSc in Forensic Speech Science at York, the only course of its kind.  He has degrees in linguistics and phonetics from the Universities of Edinburgh and Newcastle, and has held teaching and research positions in the speech sciences at institutions throughout the UK and in Germany.

I personally admire Dr Watt as a Professor of Mass Communication. I appreciate this passion and study in the language domain. I shoulder his view on its importance in modern life: post-truth (deception), appearance, personality, behavior, and emotions.

A few simple procedures to follow to improve your English:

1. Reading simple children's storybooks to start off with understanding word placement and sentence construction.

2. Write out short essays to judge your grip on the language.

3. Copy down paragraphs from newspaper articles to understand advanced word placement and sentence construction.

4. Make a note of words in the copied paragraphs and find their meanings and how these words are used in a sentence.Online dictionaries or generic over the counter dictionaries should help this process.

5. Use a thesaurus to find out words that have a similar meaning to the words you just found the meanings to using a dictionary.

6. Readout sentences aloud. The paragraph which you copied from newspapers can be used for this process. You can also select paragraphs from magazines, textbooks and other sources of English prose.

7. Use an online dictionary to find out how words are pronounced.

8. Watch the news from both national and international channels. Do note that you do not have to pay attention to the content of the news but to the manner in which words are pronounced and the style of speaking English. You will notice that there are two dominant methods of speaking English, the British accent and the American accent, there are other accents (for example English with an influence of Arabic, or French or Russian in various news channels).

9. Write out more complex essays based on an article that you have read in the newspaper or magazine or from any other source of prose.

10. Read, copy and find the meaning of words of articles found in the Editorial Section of newspapers as senior journalists write the articles on this page. The end result of these procedures will leave you with a better grip on the English language both written and spoken.

English Grammar – Apostrophe

We all learn English grammar in school and they we forget to follow the rules, today when Indian education system has reached to its ugliest end. Students do not want to study, parents are busy in their daily job or business. Teachers are marginally paid and not been trained to develop and cater their craft.

Result: A girl who knew nothing stood first in Bihar last year, this year 70% are failed and acquired 1 or 2 marks. The rest of the states also share this miserable reality. Only they did not flash in headlines.

The harsh reality is reflected in employment numbers, Indian fresh doctors, engineers and many other professionals failed to acquire job today and foreign companies do not want to recruit them as they lack in basic English speaking with written communication.

Today we will learn the use of Apostrophe, we use apostrophe to show the possession in English language. It is interesting to read the complete usage of this apostrophe.

Apostrophe is a valuable tool given to us by English. We use –‘s in singular and –s’ in plural form. Nouns ending with‘ s ‘ adds   ‘s  to form singular possessive. In plural possessive nouns with ending‘s’ we add ‘es’ to it.

Names ending with es pronounced iz.

Linguistically anarchy: While writing Jesus’ is correct by Hart’s rule p.31. Jesus’s is also used in revised English Bible 1989.

Be careful in following usages

  1. A fortnights’ holidays 
  2. A two weeks’ holiday
  3. A rupee’s worth            
  4. Two rupees’ worth

Your money’s worth. One should place it correctly. There is no need of apostrophe for go to or take to usages like

"I am going to Chitale stores", "He will take me to Candy shop".

When we use pronoun and establish the entity then we do not need to add the apostrophe.

In country like India, we always read and watch the names of hotels or shops, Quality Walls’s ice cream, or Talvalkar’s gym. It should be Quality Walls ice cream and Talvalkar gym.

Apostrophe is not used for plural non-possessive like, Possessive pronouns: its hers, ours, theirs, yours and whose.

Last and important tip: There are no words such as - her’s, our’s, their’s, your’s.

Indian English Language Mistakes Part -2

Linking Verbs

Normally we use following verbs as linking verbs

Appear, be, become, feel, get, go, grow, look, prove, remain, seem, smell, sound, stay, taste, turn.

These verbs are often followed by adjectives instead of adverbs. In these sentences the adjective describes the subject of the sentence and not the verb which is why an adverb is not possible.

Look at these examples:

Rupali seemed tired. (not tiredly)
Amar seemed angry
The lassi tastes fine.
The sbattery is low.
Vishal grew tired of listening.
The cake all went bad.
He remained calm.

However the verbs in the list are not always used as linking verbs.

The cake went bad. In this sentence the verb 'went' is being used to link the adjective 'bad' to the noun 'food'.

The game went badly. In this sentence the verb 'went' is used to mean 'progressed' and the adverb 'badly' is explaining how.

Amar grew angry. In this sentence 'grew' is being used to link the adjective 'angry' to 'Amar'.

The wheat grew quickly. 'Quickly' here does not describe the wheat but the speed at which they grew. Here 'grew' is not linking the noun, 'Amar' to the adjective, 'angry'.

Types of Interviews

While doing job or business we come across many different types of interviews methods and techniques. If you are a fresher then you might experience a combination or all of these.

Screening Interviews:

They are used for a large number of applicants and employer has a very less time to shortlist them. Screening interviews are usually done by phone, they are very short in nature, the questions focuses on basic qualifications.

Telephonic Interviews:

These are used to overcome the geographic obstacles. When the applicant lives in another city or state, Telephonic interviews are used they are longer and detailed in nature. Here are a few guide lines for you.

  • Be well prepared.
  • To focus all your attention on the interview.
  • Use a land line to avoid the possibility call drop or poor reception
  • Conduct the interview in a quiet private premise
  • Ask family members and friends not to disturb you during the interview
  • Avoid distractions and focus on the interview.

If you are busy then tell them you are busy and ask to schedule a time later in the day or week. Don’t worry, interviewers know they are calling you without an appointment and are very flexible – they will work with you.

One-on-One Interviews:

This is the most common interview method and involves you and the interviewer alone in a private office. Now your dress, appearance, non-verbal communication skills and other visual factors, as well as your verbal communication skills matters a lot. You need a to undergo a crash course of soft-skills to clear these type of interview.

Panel Interviews:

Sometimes the employer will have a “selection committee” or for some other reason there will be multiple people involved in conducting interviews. In these panel interviews you must connect and engage every member of the panel in you. You need to be smart while answering their questions. Always remember when one person ask you a question the others observe you. Each panel member has your resume and you know nobody from them. To win their hearts you need a wit and wisdom. That you learn in crash course of soft-skills.

Serial Interviews:

In a serial interview you will meet with several people throughout the day, usually back-to-back. They are physically and mentally tiring and often consume entire day. They are typically used for senior-level positions, but there are exceptions. You can learn the guide lines of behavior and reactions in soft-skill crash course. 

Lunch Interviews:

Sometimes the employer will take you to an interview lunch or even dinner. These interviews evaluate your social skills and manners. Really this is very tricky and most of the candidates fail during these interviews. These interviews are conducted only for prestigious posts. What and how you eat, who do you sit and how you describe the food and mood is matters a lot. What examples you put and how you appreciate is the most challenging part of it. Only after and ex-tempo lectures of mine can shape you ready for it.

Group Interviews:

The interviewer will ask questions of no one in particular in hopes that a “leader” will emerge. Group interviews are used rarely but they are used to find the leadership qualities in you. It is a challenging task to make realize other person what and how you are the best leader. Post soft-skills ex-tempo lectures of mine can guide you to prepare for these kinds of interviews.  

Stress Interviews:

They are used during all Indian government examinations for officers. This interviewer may make the room physically uncomfortable by turning up the heat, make the candidate sit in an uncomfortable chair or sometimes even stand, ask off-the-wall questions that have nothing to do with the job and possibly refuse to answer your questions. These interviews are designed to taste your talent and patience. An officer always works under pressure and interviewer wants to check you psychological level of stress.

Conclusion:

Employers always conduct different type of interviews to know the candidate inside-out. In the days of growing competition one must be well equipped to face the challenges of the world. I wish you best of luck. I urge you to learn what are soft-skills and communication skills. Today there is learned youth but they lack in communication and soft-skills.
