In the passage from “America Needs Its Nerds” by Leonid Fridman, he is advising the general population about America’s absence of help for the exceedingly wise and the individuals who look for information as opposed to having it constrained upon them. This is making America fall behind different nations scholastically. Fridman builds up this contention through his production of parallel sentence structure and the language inside them, and comparing the humans within society. Fridman’s main purpose is to underline how unfortunate it is that a great amount of people don’t care to be educated in the U.S. All through the passage Fridman uses little fragments of common dialect that have an intense effect. He mainly utilizes the conversational language to characterize the group of humans who do not care for knowledge nor education. In the second section Fridman expressed, “a freak biting the head off a live chicken.” (10). That was referencing how Americans have changed the importance of “nerd” or “geek” to ridicule somebody who is smart. This could likewise speak to the irony through the ones who wish to be uneducated. At the point when Fridman is giving the genuine meaning of “nerd” he utilizes “freak” to characterize it. “Freak” emerges and will stay with the reader and by making the correlation between the individuals who are intelligent to “freaks” it shows how they are seen. They appear just as they are outsiders. He wants people to learn that it shouldn’t be like this. The seventh through ninth sections have numerous comparisons that power the reader to think as well as increase Fridman’s argument that American culture is slipping from a scholarly point of view. He looks at the US to East Asia and baseball players to college educators. This features his thought that as a general public it is fundamental to change our perspectives and ethics. America should be the most elite, yet it won’t remain as such if its citizens don’t value knowledge like its rivals. Americans admire baseball players as their inspirations rather than college professors. Fridman is pushing for a change and closing the paragraph with the correlations is vital in light of the fact that the reader starts to make their own particular associations inside their own brain and examples, therefore trusting Fridman is right in his thinking. The first, third, and fifth sections are three main examples of parallel sentence structure which analyze the minority of those esteeming knowledge and the greater part of the individuals who don’t. The primary passage has the expression, “intellectually curious and academically serious”. It is essential to take note of the parallelism is toward the end if the passage verses the start. Having the parallelism toward the end adds more prominent attention to the expression as
