Part Three (Individual): The Extended Definition for Two Audiences
Use the technical term you selected for your Group Infographic and write two definitions of it, one for a lay (general) audience and one for a knowledgeable audience. For the lay audience, assume that your readers have a basic, well-rounded education, but no special knowledge of your field, except what they have been able to pick up from such sources as the popular press. For the knowledgeable audience, you should address fellow students in your field of study (or hobby, or club, or other group); they already have some familiarity with your subject, so they will be comfortable with terminology and more advanced discussions of your chosen term. (If you wish to address a different knowledgeable audience that you feel is more appropriate, please contact me first.)
It should be clear that neither of these is to be a standard “dictionary definition” of a phrase or two. (In fact, do not use the dictionary to create your definition.) Rather, you will be explaining the term, how and in what context it is used, and, in some detail, what it refers to. Therefore, you must present your information clearly and logically for the audience it is intended for. You may make use of whatever background information your readers can reasonably be assumed to have, but you must make sure that a correct understanding of the material does not rely on their knowing something that they may very well not know. In other words, if your definition relies heavily on the readers’ understanding of some additional material, make sure you explain that material unless it is common knowledge for those readers.
Each definition should include at least two (2) of the techniques found in TC (in the section on “Writing Extended Definitions,” pp. 537-541 in the 12th edition) on extended definitions: graphics, examples, partition, principle of operation, comparison and contrast, analogy, negation, etymology, and history of the term. Be sure to include a clear sentence definition for each audience (see textbook for more on sentence definitions). And at least some part of your definition should give your readers a reason for wanting to know what you are telling them (i.e. you must establish exigence for your paper).
For this assignment, you must use at least one secondary source, but not more than four; you MUST accurately cite ALL source material using MLA documentation style. Failure to do so will result in failing the assignment. Please contact me if you have any questions about documentation.
Use the template I provided to Canvas for MLA guidelines. You will be writing one paper with two sections, one containing your definition for a lay audience and the other containing your definition for a knowledgeable audience. Each section should be double spaced and given a title that indicates what term will be defined and who it will be defined for. Be sure to provide a title for each section.
Approximately 300-400 words for each definition (600-800 total)
Comments from Customer
When deciding how to cite your source, start by consulting the list of core elements. These are the general pieces of information that MLA suggests including in each Works Cited entry. In your citation, the elements should be listed in the following order:
2 Title of source.
3 Title of container,
4 Other contributors,
8 Publication date,

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
I got my order information wrong, can I change that?
Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (email@example.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.
Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?
Yes you can. Email Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
