Using little words like “the” and “a” make a big difference
o For example: Did you see THE broken glass?
This presupposes that there indeed was broken glass
“its differences that make a difference”
o if you use different words it can make a big difference
tag questions (“isn’t it” “weren’t you” “correct” “isn’t that true”) are questions that
ask for agreement or confirmation
o example: It’s a nice day today, isn’t it?
There are powerful and powerless people in the court
o Lawyers are very powerful in the courtroom
They controls the speaking etc
