    I was thinking of doing my research project on Hiro Mashima’s Fairy Tail manga series. For those who do not know what that is, it is basically a Japanese comic book/TV series. I was going to write my paper on some characters’ dialogue and explain the quotes that they use and analyze them. I really want to use this for my topic because I really love Fairy Tail. I began watching the show 3 years ago on my spring break and I liked it so much that I started reading the manga series. This is why I would like to do my research on the Fairy Tail manga.

    In J.R.R. Tolkien’s books, the Elves and Dwarfs have hated each other for generations. In the Lord of The Rings, an elf and a dwarf, Legolas and Gimli, become great friends. My first idea will look at how Tolkien describes the interaction between these two characters.
    My second idea for this is focused only on the character of Legolas and how he is described throughout Lord of the Rings. He is described as a keen, great warrior.

    I was thinking of analyzing a comic or cartoon. I am tempted to write about a movie like Bee Movie, Shrek, Toy Story, Spongebob Squarepants, Adventure Time, Danny Phantom (especially the teacher who cusses in book titles), or a comic book like Doom Patrol, The Umbrella Academy, Archie comics, or Spider Girl (from like the 90s). The point of analyzing something like this would be to discuss the rhetorical effects of word choices and placement. Comics would probably be better for this because you can see the written word on the page paired with the image. Comics and cartoons are my whole personality so doing something that analyzes comics as a communicative art form is right up my alley.

    I am thinking about choosing a short story and I am torn between “Everyday Use” and “The Monkey’s Paw.” Both are stories that I remember enjoying when I first read them. “The Monkey’s Paw” was written in 1902 so the writing style is completely different from what you would see now. I know I can look at the narrator style and the character style in this story. Then with “Everyday Use” I could compare how the sisters and their mother talk and analyze the differences. “The Monkey’s Paw” has a much more interesting story to me so I’m leaning towards picking that one.

    I am thinking about doing my research project on the show shark tank. I enjoy this show very much and I feel like that this is something that I would be quite interested in. I could analyze the dialogue and the differences within the people who are coming to sale their products and the people whom they are selling them too. Bring up the context of how they use their words opposed to the others.

    I was going to analyze the book Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer . Then I decide to analyze the “Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation” or known as the “Infamy Speech”. It a memorable opening line to a speech and it was the first time an attack like that had been launched against the United States. It was the reason we entered world war ii. My grandfather fought in world war ii in Germany. I find the word choices he uses during the speech to be very interesting. Most the interesting words are adverbs and he uses repetition with one word particular throughout the speech. I think it is interesting that he wrote the speech himself. I will be analyzing the sentence length throughout the speech.
