Finally… THE END…. :)

10 Jun

Alhamdulillah, thanks to Allah. After all the circumstances, I finally managed to finished the tasks that were given to be finished on this blog. First time i heard that we had to do tasks on a blog, i really thought it was just as easy as pie. But i am totally wrong. One of the thing that make this tasks hard for us was because of the internet. Sometimes we could not reach the internet due to the wireless connection problems. No internet, no survey monkey, no wordpress.

Anyway, it has over now. Now is the time for us to be focusing on the studies for the final exam. I sincerely thanks all of people who help me during the process to finished all the tasks in this blog, especially to my lecturers, Dr. Zaini and Dr. Zulkifli. I’m also sincerely apologized if my works does not really satisfying 😦

Not forgetting my beloved classmates and all my friends, thank you very much. Good luck in the final exam! See you guys in next semester! ^__^

  • Friend of respondent 1

Respondent 1 saw herself as a conscientiousness person. Coincidentally, her friend assume the same about her. Her friend saw her as a responsible, organized and persevering person that has a very tidy room. On social network, her friend saw her as someone who always shared important information with others.

  • Friend of respondent 2

Friend of respondent 2 had the same opinion as me. His friend saw him as someone who responsible, organized and persevering. He also been described as a person that able to deal with most problems. His friend also answered that his room condition is very tidy and when in social networks, he always shared important information with others. His friend’s answers match my opinion that respondent 2 is a conscientiousness person.

  • Friend of respondent 3

I assume that respondent 3 is suitable to be categorized in “extroversion” personality, but her friends thinks that she is more towards the “openness to experience” personality. Her friend states that respondent 3’s room was filled with her own creativity. When respondent 3 failed a paper in her exam, her friend saw her as someone who would take that as a challenge and do better next time. Her friend also answered that respondent 3 always post about her experience in activities while she was in social network.

  • Friend of respondent 4

He always involved in social activities and post about his experiences in social networks. His friend also answered that when working in a group, respondent 3 always appreciate and respect the other’s opinion.

Her friend states that respondent 5 ‘s room is almost empty and dull. Furthermore, her friend also saw her as someone who can easily feel anxious and moody, and that make her always post about her dissatisfaction in social network.

Survey Monkey Report : Respondent

  • Respondent 1

I assume that respondent 1 is suitable under ”openness to experience” personality. However, her answers in the surveymonkey are more towards the ”conscienstiousness” personality. She state that her room condition is very tidy. In social networks, she used to shared important information with others. When working in a group, she like to share the workload evenly.

  • Respondent 2

He always involved in social activities and if he failed in his exam, he would take that as a challenge and do better next time. Therefore, we can assume that my opinion about him was not correct.

  • Respondent 3

Based on her Facebook postings, I assume that  respondent 3 is categorized in the “extroversion” personality. However, her answers in the questionnaires are more towards the “openness to experiences” personality. For example, she saw herself as someone that curious, intelligent and imaginative. She also said that her room is full of her own creativity and she was interested in puzzle that require an alert mind.  Therefore, I can sum up that she is, in fact, an “openness to experiences” person.

  • Respondent 4

As what I see from his Facebook postings, respondent 4 is an “agreeableness” person. Luckily, his answers in the questionnaires prove that I am correct. He see himself as someone cooperative, helpful, and nurturing that suites him as an “agreeableness” person.

  • Respondent 5

From her Facebook postings, I see respondent 5 as a sensitive person and categorized her in “neurocitism”. In the surveymonkey, she state that she does not always involved in social activities. She also saw herself as someone who can easily feel anxious and moody. She would be moody for a few days if she failed a paper in exam, and tend to be the quiet one when working in a group. Based on her answers, it have been proved that my assumption was correct.

Let’s try it! English Pronunciation~

30 May

If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world. After trying the verses, a Frenchman said he’d prefer six months of hard labor to reading six lines aloud.

Dearest creature in creation,
Study English pronunciation.
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.

Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.
Just compare heart, beard, and heard,
Dies and diet, lord and word,
Sword and sward, retain and Britain.
(Mind the latter, how it’s written.)

Now I surely will not plague you
With such words as plaque and ague.
But be careful how you speak:
Say break and steak, but bleak and streak;

Cloven, oven, how and low,
Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe.
Hear me say, devoid of trickery,
Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore,

Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles,
Exiles, similes, and reviles;
Scholar, vicar, and cigar,
Solar, mica, war and far;
One, anemone, Balmoral,
Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel;

Gertrude, German, wind and mind,
Scene, Melpomene, mankind.
Billet does not rhyme with ballet,
Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet.
Blood and flood are not like food,
Nor is mould like should and would.

Viscous, viscount, load and broad,
Toward, to forward, to reward.
And your pronunciation’s OK
When you correctly say croquet,
Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve,
Friend and fiend, alive and live.

Ivy, privy, famous; clamour
And enamour rhyme with hammer.
River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb,
Doll and roll and some and home.
Stranger does not rhyme with anger,
Neither does devour with clangour.
Souls but foul, haunt but aunt,
Font, front, wont, want, grand, and grant,

Shoes, goes, does. Now first say finger,
And then singer, ginger, linger,
Real, zeal, mauve, gauze, gouge and gauge,
Marriage, foliage, mirage, and age.
Query does not rhyme with very,
Nor does fury sound like bury.

Dost, lost, post and doth, cloth, loth.
Job, nob, bosom, transom, oath.
Though the differences seem little,
We say actual but victual.
Refer does not rhyme with deafer.
Foeffer does, and zephyr, heifer.

Mint, pint, senate and sedate;
Dull, bull, and George ate late.
Scenic, Arabic, Pacific,
Science, conscience, scientific.
Liberty, library, heave and heaven,
Rachel, ache, moustache, eleven.
We say hallowed, but allowed,
People, leopard, towed, but vowed.

Mark the differences, moreover,
Between mover, cover, clover;
Leeches, breeches, wise, precise,
Chalice, but police and lice;
Camel, constable, unstable,
Principle, disciple, label.

Petal, panel, and canal,
Wait, surprise, plait, promise, pal.
Worm and storm, chaise, chaos, chair,
Senator, spectator, mayor.
Tour, but our and succour, four.
Gas, alas, and Arkansas.

Sea, idea, Korea, area,
Psalm, Maria, but malaria.
Youth, south, southern, cleanse and clean.
Doctrine, turpentine, marine.

Compare alien with Italian,
Dandelion and battalion.
Sally with ally, yea, ye,
Eye, I, ay, aye, whey, and key.
Say aver, but ever, fever,
Neither, leisure, skein, deceiver.

Heron, granary, canary.
Crevice and device and aerie.
Face, but preface, not efface.
Phlegm, phlegmatic, ass, glass, bass.
Large, but target, gin, give, verging,
Ought, out, joust and scour, scourging.

Ear, but earn and wear and tear
Do not rhyme with here but ere.
Seven is right, but so is even,
Hyphen, roughen, nephew Stephen,
Monkey, donkey, Turk and jerk,
Ask, grasp, wasp, and cork and work.
Pronunciation (think of Psyche!)
Is a paling stout and spikey?
Won’t it make you lose your wits,
Writing groats and saying grits?
It’s a dark abyss or tunnel:
Strewn with stones, stowed, solace, gunwale,
Islington and Isle of Wight,
Housewife, verdict and indict.
Finally, which rhymes with enough,
Though, through, plough, or dough, or cough?
Hiccough has the sound of cup.

My advice is to give up!!!
