For my "Register" piece of homework, I have been asked to create a formal/informal argument. Fox hunting and smoking

Extracts from this document...


English Homework: Register. Introduction: For my "Register" piece of homework, I have been asked to create a formal/informal argument. For my formal argument, I've decided to base it on fox hunting. My 'argument', will be more of a debate. But, I will persist in using formal language through out. I will have an opposing argument, which will constantly try to diminish the other opposing argument. This will remain in a formal manner through-out! For my informal argument, I've decided to base it on the smoking. I will try to keep a constant flow of informal language. This argument will be based on a friend smoking, and an opposing friend will try to talk them into stop smoking. As you may have noticed, both of these topics have been frequently in the newspapers recently. Formal Register: As summer was coming to an abrupt close, the distant, ice-cold wind travelled abruptly over the neglected heath. A drowsy silence lay over the large, houses of the enclosed street. ...read more.


Rapidly, the wind howled with an unforgivable anger. It has fortunately passed, as soon as it arrived. And it was gone once more... 'No, I don't want to hear it. I've heard it all before, you've always claimed fox-hunting shouldn't be banned. Alas, you still fail to recognize how inhumane it is, to kill a fox'. Said the other man; in a slightly exasperated voice. 'Oh, be quiet. He said. 'You always take that route; you just try to claim the honorable position here, without even explaining why it should be banned.' 'Oh - well - I guess you're right. I suppose...' He retorted cowardly... Silence fell upon the room. There was noise no more, not even a single tap. Alas, it was as though he had no more retorts. No more reports to justify why this despicable act should be banned... ... Then suddenly... 'I would like to make it quite clear that we cannot proceed on banning fox hunting because it's unnecessary. ...read more.


As they say "Ignorant is bliss". You want to die, do you? You'll never see your cowing grandchildren grow up. The alternative to that is cancer, so I disagree with your comment. Who the hell would want cancer... the murderer without a conscious. You still haven't answered my question, do you think it's 'cool'? Does it make you look 'big', 'n' hard, in front of your mates? Mathew: Do you think I give a crap? I couldn't give a damn whether it made me look "cool", "hard", or whatever! Why don't you bugger off? Scott: Whatever man... you're an idiot. A fool, you know they talk about you, right? Everyone's saying you smell 'n' stuff like that... See, smoking does that. But, I suppose you "don't give a damn"? Mathew: Yeah, that's right. Glad we got that stupid crap out of the way. Scott: Your answer to everything isn't it, "Yeah, that's right"? Why don't you bugger off? I don't want to have someone smoking around me, do I? Mathew: Well, why you still here then? I don't want you here, bugger off. Scott: Why don't you just quit? It's not good for you... ...read more.
