What the Written Word Reveals
Our senses determine the way we experience the world around us. In the May issue of Analytical English , there are several stories about sensory input changing peoples' perceptions. Have you ever seen something that wasn't really there? Take a look at what happens to people as they get older and start to lose their vision in "Is Seeing Really Believing?" You definitely can't believe everything you see on the Internet. But that doesn't stop people from watching videos online, adding to "The Incredible Popularity of YouTube." To get a feel for something you can't experience through a computer screen, there's "Sensational Sintra," where you can see, hear, touch, smell, and taste all that Portugal has to offer. In case the food you find isn't up to your standards, add a dash of "The World's Most Expensive Spice" for more flavor. Portions that are too large can be used for "Feeding the Homeless with Leftovers." On the same plate with helping the less fortunate is how one "Supermarket Tones it Down to Help Autistic People" by lowering the volume of music and eliminating background noises for people with autism who are extra sensitive. Don't hesitate to use all five senses when reading this month's issue of Analytical English !
