Cognitive load

In cognitive psychologycognitive load refers to the effort being used in the working memory. Cognitive load theory differentiates cognitive load into three types: intrinsic, extraneous, and germane.

Intrinsic cognitive load is the effort associated with a specific topic, extraneous cognitive load refers to the way information or tasks are presented to a learner, and germane cognitive load refers to the work put into creating a permanent store of knowledge, or a schema.

Cognitive load theory was developed in the late 1980s out of a study of problem solving by John Sweller.[1] Sweller argued that instructional design can be used to reduce cognitive load in learners. Much later, other researchers developed a way to measure perceived mental effort which is indicative of cognitive load.[2][3] Task-invoked pupillary response is a reliable and sensitive measurement of cognitive load that is directly related to working memory.[4] Heavy cognitive load can have negative effects on task completion, and it is important to note that the experience of cognitive load is not the same in everyone. The elderly, students, and children experience different, and more often higher, amounts of cognitive load.

High cognitive load in the elderly has been shown to affect their center of balance.[5] With increased distractions, particularly from cell phone use, students are more prone to experiencing high cognitive load which can reduce academic success.[6] Children have less general knowledge than adults which increases their cognitive load.[citation needed] Recent theoretical advances include the incorporation of embodied cognition in order to predict the cognitive load resulting from embodied interactions.

The Prelude, MA in English

The Prelude

The Prelude may be classed somewhat loosely as an epic; it does not satisfy all the traditional qualifications of that genre. The epic is customarily defined as a long narrative poem which recounts heroic actions.

commonly legendary or historical, and usually of one principal hero (from whence it derives its unity). The Prelude take its unity from the fact that the central “hero” is its author

The poem is written blank  verse, unrhymed lines of iambic pentameter with certain permissible substitutions of trochees and anapests to relieve the monotony of the iambic foot and with total disregard for the stanza from.

In the middle of the eighteenth century, there was an eclipse of interest in the rhymed  heroic couplet. A revival of interest in Milton led to the establishment of Miltonic blank verse as the standard medium for lengthy philosophical or didactic poetical works.

The resulting form came to be called the “literary” epic as opposed to heroic and folk epic. To this type, Wordsworth, with his unconventional ideas of diction brought a natural and conversational tone.

9th Class English, The Snake and the Mirror

Thomas Shadwell

Thomas Shadwell was born at either Bromehill Farm, Weeting-with-Broomhill or Santon House, Lynford, Norfolk, and he was educated at Bury St Edmunds School, and at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, which he entered in 1656. He left the university without a degree.

Thomas Shadwell

He joined the Middle Temple. At the Whig triumph in 1688, he superseded John Dryden as poet laureate and historiographer royal. He died at Chelsea on 19 November 1692. He was buried in Chelsea Old Church, but his tomb was destroyed by wartime bombing; however a memorial to him survives in Poets’ Corner in Westminster Abbey.

Mac Flecknoe

Mac Flecknoe

It is about Mac Flecknoe When Dryden wrote the poem the political scene of England was dominated by two political parties: The Tories and the Whigs. The Whigs were led by the Earl of Shafts bury who in 1979 introduced the Exclusion Bill in the Parliament following the revelation of a Popish plot to kill Charles II and put James, the the Duke of York, on the throne and also to bring the French army into England.Mac Flecknoe

The object of the Bill was to press the claims of the Duke of Monmouth an illegitimate son of Charles, to the throne. The Bill was passed in the Common but defeated in the Lord’s.

The Country was on the verge of Civil War. The king arrested Shafts bury and banished the Duke of monmouth. But the Jury of Middle sex rejected the treason charges against Shafts bury and released him immediately. To Celebrate the success the Whigs struck a medal bearing the head and name of their hero.

Dryden published his satire. The Medal criticizing the Whigs. There were several replies from the Tories. Thomas Shadwell wrote The Medal of John Bayes Which was actually an indecent and unfair attack of Dryden’s personal life Mac Flecknoe was Dryden’s reply to Shadwell.

Dryen’s poem is a satire. It’s tone is mock heroic and the poet uses irony with telling effect. Richard Flecknoe is ready to vacate his title as the world’s worst poet. A worthy successor has to be chosen. The choice falls on Shadwell. He is to be crowned the king of the realm of dullness.

The venue for the coronation is in Barbican; a suburb notorious for its low and vulgar life. The Ceremony is performed with the usual rites now shown in a new, ludicrous light.

The Waste Land

The Waste Land

Eliot’s The Waste Land is I think the justification of the Movement of our modern experiment, since 1900. He wrote Ezra Pound shortly after the poem was published in 1922. T.S. Eliot’s poem describes a mood of deep disillusionment stemming both from the collective experience of the First World War. and from Eliot’s personal travails.

Born in St. Louis, Eliot had studied at Harvard, the Sorbonne, and Oxford before moving to London, where he completed his doctoral dissertation on the philosopher F. H. Bradley. Because of the war, he was unable to return to the United states to receive his degree.

He taught grammar school briefly and then took a job at Lloyd’s Bank, Where he worked for eight years. Unhappily married, he suffered writer’s block and then a breakdown soon after the war and wrote most of The Waste Land While recovering in a sanatorium in Lausanne, Switzerland, at the age of 33.

Eliot later described the poem as the relief of a personal and wholly insignificant grouse against life. Just a piece of rhythmical grumbling. Yet the poem seemed to his contemporaries to transcend Eliot’s personal situation and represent a general crisis in western culture.

One of its major themes is the barrenness of a post war world in which human sexuality has been perverted from its normal course and the natural world too has become infertile. Eliot went on to convert to a High Church form of Anglicanism, become a naturalized British subject, and turn to conservative politics.

The Waste Land was quickly recognized as a major statement of modernist poetics, both for its broad symbolic significance and for Eliot’s masterful use of formal techniques that earlier modernists had only begun to attempt. The critic I.A. Richards influentially praised Eliot for describing the shared post war “sense of desolation, of uncertainty, of futility, of the groundlessness of aspirations, of the vanity of endeavor.

and a thirst for a life-giving water which seems suddenly to have failed. Eliot later complained that approving critics like Richards said that I had expressed the disillusionment of a generation, Which is nonsense.

The Snake and the Mirror

The Snake and the Mirror

“HAS a snake ever coiled itself round any part of your body? A full-blooded cobra?” All of us fell silent. The question came from the homeopath. The topic came up when we were discussing snakes. We listened attentively as the doctor continued with his tale. It was a hot summer night; about ten o’clock. I had my meal at the restaurant and returned to my room. I heard a noise from above as I opened the door. The sound was a familiar one. One could say that the rats and I shared the room. I took out my box of matches and lighted the kerosene lamp on the table.

The Concept of Linguistic Sign

The Concept of Linguistic Sign

The concept of linguistic sign was given by the famous linguistic Ferdinand DE Saussure (1857-1923). According to him, the pairing of word-labels and meaning concepts produce a system of signs. Each sign consists of two parts: a signifies i.e. a label and a signified i.e. the concept. It is important to note that the actual sign is not one or the other or both; the sign is the association the blinds the label and the concept together. In the pictures below , we give visual illustrations of the signs for “tree” and “book”.saussure-sign

Notice that the sounds or letters involved in speaking or writing the words tree and book have nothing to do with the objects “tree” and “book”; any other set of sounds would do just as well. Hindi speakers, for example, use the sequence p-e-R for the object ‘tree’ and the sequence k-i-aa-b for the object ‘book’. However , once these correspondence are established, they acquire a fairly permanent place in out minds.

We often wonder how we would function if we did not develop this important mechanism. Imagine how you would feel if you were to coin a new word every time you see a new chair. And then different people in the same community may coin very different words for the same object and it may  become impossible to talk to each other. If i want to talk to you, then we must share not only the same words but also the concepts these these words denote. According to Saussure,

The concept of the linguistic sign of the linguistic sign is often used to suggest that our thoughts are entirely formed by our language. Hindi speakers have only one word barf for the object for which English speakers have at least two i.e. ice and snow; and Eskimos have more than twenty. So speakers of Hindi, English and Eskimo languages perhaps see the world very differently and their perception are conditioned by their languages.

Does everyone see the same number and kinds of colors?  Do two different communities living in the same environment classify and categorize the flora and fauna around them in the same way? Is there only one ‘Reality’ there? Or is it the case, that different languages produce different versions of external reality? What happens to people who know and use many languages at the same time?
