A Brief Description of the Book Jem and Scout (Jean Louise) are growing up during the late 1900's. There father is a lawyer that has to defend negroes, now defending Tom Robinson, a black man falsely accused. Scout has to deal with becoming a lady, which she does not want to do and both of the kids have to deal with people who hate their father deeply. "Olden-Time" Language The language had a positive effect on the story, even though it was hard to interpret. I could use context clues for some of the words, (when it says "We were as squirmy as catawba worms," I knew that they were some sort of squirmy, worm-like thing) and others I had no idea about(I mean scuppernongs, really?).

Any guesses to what Yaw is?
Yaw-to deviate temporarily from a from a straight course Mrs. Dubose
Philipic-a bitter verbal attack
Appopletic-to behave as if on the verge of having a stroke. Overall, the text was amazing. It showed "The Norm" of that time period through the language. The story wouldn't be the same if it was "Like, omg! My brother who's 13 broke his arm!" instead of "When he was 13, my brother Jem got his arm badly broken,". "The whole place smelled like calomel..." "The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience," "Courage is not a man with a gun in his hand. It's knowing you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what," You should read this if you like challenges (like me). The author, through the language, was displaying the setting and mood of the story.
