Punctuality. Every businessperson knows that time is valuable. “Don’t waste my time!” snaps a manager at a slow colleague.

76.If you would like to live in Manhattan - the most famous part of New York City, where most of the tourist attractions are located - do some mathematical calculations first. Calculate your after-tax income. Expect to pay approximately 35 percent of your net salary toward housing. In Manhattan, the rental cost of a two-bedroom apartment will range from US$1,200 to US$7,000 a month. The apartments at the low end of the scale are located in the more dangerous parts of town. The most expensive apartments are the luxury apartments, located in the most exclusive parts of Manhattan. (In a two-bedroom apartment, be prepared to live with three people, in order to share the cost of rent.) Big Apple residents also must pay many different expenses. Residents shell out over 8 percent sales tax on most items they buy. Getting around town can be expensive, too. Most New Yorkers will buy a MetroCard for unlimited subway and bus use; this card costs US$63.00 a month.

81.Laser eye surgery is very popular. Each year, more than one million Americans have this type of surgery performed. In the United Kingdom, more than eight thousand people per week undergo the procedure. This is what happens: a very thin layer of the cornea is cut and lifted up. (Its thickness is approximately that of a human hair.) The cornea is never completely severed from the rest of the eye; it remains attached to the remaining cornea, just like a hinge. The exposed tissue is then lasered. When the lasering is completed - and it usually takes no longer than 30 to 90 seconds per eye - the cornea is placed back in its original position. The surgeon then replaces the flap in exactly the same position. No stitching is needed. Nothing is ever inserted directly into the eye. All these advanced techniques result in a very short, post-surgical recuperation period. The patient will experience minimal discomfort during and after the surgery, and, most often, the patient’s eyesight will be dramatically improved. No wonder this procedure is so popular!

86.Because a play presents its action before an audience, the experience it creates is a communal experience, and its impact is intensified. Reading a short story or a novel is a private transaction between the reader and a book, but the performance of a play is public. The spectator’s response is affected by the presence of other spectators. A comedy becomes funnier when one hears others laughing, a tragedy more moving when others are present to carry the current of feeling. A dramatic experience, in fact, becomes more intense almost exactly to the extent that it is shared and the individual spectator becomes aware that others are having the same experience. This intensification is partly dependent on the size of the audience, but more on their sense of community with each other. A play will be more successful performed before a small audience in a packed auditorium than before a larger audience in a half-filled one.

91.To this point, we have been concerned primarily with the factive aspect of language and cognition. However, much of what has been said applies as well to the emotive aspect of language use. Nonetheless there are contrasts in the coding of the two types of information. While factive information is coded primarily in distinctly verbal sequences, emotive information is coded primarily in gestures, tone of voice, facial expression, and the like. Whereas verbal sequences consist of a finite set of distinctive sounds (or features of sounds), syllables, words,
idioms, and collocations, and generally of discrete and countable sequences of elements, the emotive coding devices are typically non-discrete and are more or less continuously variable.

96.All of us have in our minds certain images of the way in which “typical” citizens of the major western European nations behave politically. We probably think of a Frenchman as intelligent and volatile, individualistic, disliking authority and regimentation, cynical about sweeping statements of principle, passionately patriotic, but hating his political opponents because they do not share his assumptions about the framework within which the country’s destinies are to be worked out. He has become inured to unstable government. We probably think of an Englishman as sensible and calm, feeling the need to act out principle, devoted to political freedom, law-abiding, content with social inequality, and willing to work in harness with even his bitterest political enemy since all agree on the basic assumptions about the country. He is accustomed to a political stability that is unparalleled elsewhere, and takes it entirely for granted. ... Such standard mental pictures are called stereotypes, and of course they are altogether unscientific.
