Read the following text and choose the best answer for the questions below The Roman alphabet took thousands of years to develop, from the picture writing of the ancient Egyptians through modifications by Phoenicians, Greek, Romans, and others. Yet in just a dozen years, one man, Sequoyah, invented an alphabet for the Cherokee people. Born in eastern Tennessee, Sequoayah was a hunter and a silversmith in his youth, as well as an able interpreter who knew Spanish, French and English. Sequoyah wanted his people to have the secret of the “talking leaves” as he called his books of white people, and so he set out to design a written form of Cherokee. His chief aim was to record his people’s ancient tribal customs. He began by designing pictographs for every word in the Cherokee vocabulary. Reputedly his wife, angry with him for his neglect of garden and house, burned his notes, and he had to start over. This time, having concluded that picture-writing was cubersome, he made symbols for the sounds of Cherokee language. Eventually he refined his system to eighty-five characters, which he borrowed from the Roman, Greek, and Hebrew alphabets. He presented this system to the Cherokee General Council in 1821, and it was wholeheartedly approved. The response was phenomenal. Cherokees who had struggled for months to learn English lettering school picked up the new sytem in days. Several books were printed in Cherokee, and in 1828, a newspaper, the Cherokee Phoenix, was first published in t he new alphabet. Sequoyah was acclaimed by his people.
  2. In his later life, Sequoyah dedicated himself to the general advancement of his people. He went to Washington, D.C., as a representtative of the Western tribes. He helped settled bitter differences among Cherokee after their forced movement by the federal govement to the Oklahoma territory in the 1930s. He died in Mexico in 1843 while searching for groups of lost Cherokee. A statue of Sequoyah represents Oklahoma in the Statuary Hall in the Capitol building of Washington. D.C.

Signals, signs, symbols, and gestures may be found in every known culture. The basic function of a s ignal is to impinge upon the environment in such a way that it attracts attention, as, for example, the dots and the dashes of a telegraph circuit. Coded to refer to speech, the potential for communication is very great. Less adaptable to the codification of words, signs also contain meaning in of themselves. A stop sign of a barber pole conveys meaning quickly and conveniently. Symbols are more difficult to describe than either signals or signs because of their intricate relationship with the receiver’s cultural perceptions. In some cultures, applauding in a theatre provides performers with an auditory symbol of approval. Gestures such as waving and handshaking also communicate certain cultural message. Although signals, sings symbols, and gestures are very useful, they do have major disadvantage. They usually do not allow ideas to be shared without the sender being directly adjacent to the receiver. As a result, means of communication intended to be used for long distances and extended periods are based upon speech. Radio, television, and the telephone are only a few. 51: Which of the following would be the best title for the passage? A Signs, signals, and symbols B Gestures C Communication D Speech 52: What does the author say about the speech?
