The paragraph also introduced how the initiative of King James to translate the Bible into English had revolutionized and changed the language to its present form. The second paragraph that also summed up the whole chapter can be found in page 53 to 54 that stated “no corner of the English language has remained protected from changes: sounds, meanings and structures all seem to have suffered from a curious inability to stay still. This paragraph is intertwined with the paragraph in page 46 that introduced the evolution of the English language because it provided the conclusion to make idea complete. Indeed, the version of English that we used today is a product of generation of improvement to make the language more comprehensible and more coherent as a tool of communication. And this phenomenon is not only exclusive in the English language but is a phenomenon in other languages such as French and German. In the paragraphs stated, Deutscher made use the technique of story telling and quotation. The story telling came from Deutscher narration of how the English evolved from its old form and how King James revolutionized the language to its present form. He made The thesis of Deutscher that language changes over time is agreeable and well argued. The ideas purported by his thesis have been very convincing. In the paragraph chosen, he used story-telling to make his point coupled with direct quotations. The story telling involves how the English language changed over time. It is supported by direct quotation from the Bible to demonstrate how the language changed. He however, also argued for exactness and propriety of the language in the same chapter. Although his recommendations were valid, it sounded illogical when taken as a whole because he also contradicted himself by proposing how the language should be exactly used. In the previous chapter, he discussed the arrangement of words to convey a clearer meaning and the correct hierarchy of sentence. For instance, he cited how the article “The” should be used by citing a gaffe in a newspaper head line that bannered “Lawyers Give Poor Free Advice”. In this example, Deutscher demonstrated how the headline failed to convey its true meaning. Instead, the headline was misunderstood because of the absence of the article “The”. The presence of this seemingly contradicting instruction before the chapter such as the proper arrangement of words in their proper hierarchy however clashed with his thesis that language evolves. This can be realized by using the comparison technique of comparing the ideas with a previous text. In using this technique, we realized that in the previous instruction, he talked of exactness of language while narrating relativity later that language changes. Each of this idea has its truths and validity but they clashed with each other and affected the coherence of the chapter making it a little harder to understand when they were compared. For instance, it seems incomprehensible for the student to be taught in the previous text about the proper usage of the words that make up sentences only to be told later that the English language change in usage, meanings and symbols. There is a need for chapters to be rearranged to make logical. It can improve by moving the second chapter in the first chapter that could serve as a backgrounder of the whole book. This can be done by employing the technique of checking into specific details to realize that it would be more coherent to talk of the
