Question 1: This is sentence #3 in the Kennedy statement and is the end of the prologue
“After proceeding for approximately one-half mile on Dike Road I descended a hill and came upon a narrow bridge. ”
This sentence is not deceptive on its face because it is 20 words long. What are some of the semantic issues in this sentence and what do they indicate?
Question 2: This is sentence #2 in the narrative.
” I was unfamiliar with the road and turned right onto Dike Road, instead of bearing hard left on Main Street.”
The sentence is 20 words and so is not deceptive on its face. What are some of the semantic issues in this sentence and what do they indicate?
Question 3: I am posting the first sentence in Kennedy’s statement below
” On July 18th, 1969, at approximately 11:15 P.M. in Chappaquiddick, Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, I was driving my car on Main Street on my way to get the ferry back to Edgartown. ”
We know this sentence is deceptive on its face because it is 30 words. What semantic issues do you see in this sentence and what do they indicate? I will give you one to start – Kennedy only mentions himself in this sentence as if he was the only person in the car. What are some other issues?
