Assignment 3: Watch the movie clip, "V's speech" (below). Rewrite the speech, replacing all of the "V" words with synonyms. Voila! In view humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin, vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that its my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V.
Assignment 4: a. Look at assignment 3 first: Record your new speech (can be a video), and make a Wordle with your speech. b. Make a ThingLink with your Wordle picture, and add your new speech recording. c. Then, record yourself saying V's original speech, and add it to your ThingLink. d. Also, add a tag that links to the movie scene with V's speech. Does your speech sound as good using different words?
