Question description

Resemblance argument essays are essays based on comparisons. The purpose of a resemblance argument essay is to explain why X is or is not like Y. The X is usually solid while the Y is more typically an opinion You'll pick a word that has multiple meanings in multiple contexts.OR you might pick a concept. For example...

Courage. Courage has a foundation definition we can look up in the dictionary. But if you think about it, courage is defined in the moment based on context and other's perceptions. We could say it's courage that leads our fire fighters into burning buildings. We could say that it's courage that leads our soldiers into battle. We could say it's courage that leads the students from Parkland, FL to march for their beliefs. BUT some people would say it's not courage that leads people in any of these contexts. It's duty. It's valor. It's required. It's that they misunderstand because their beliefs are wrong. In other word's there is no "right" meaning to a word. Definitions of words are based partly on logical reasoning, which is the dictionary definition, and partly on reasoned opinion.

In this essay, you will explore a word's or a concept's meaning by starting with the dictionary definition and then look at how the word is used in our lives. You'll discuss the multiple meanings given to the word and the purposes of the multiple meanings
