  1. CHECK YOUR CATEGORIES PLEASE, PRINCESS.
    THIS WILL NOT SHOW UP AS A COMPLETED EXERCISE IN SEARCHES FOR YOUR USERNAME OR THE SAFE SAWS ASSIGNMENT

    2a. Customers says “I note the people opposed to sawstop don’t own one. I own 2. Jobsite and contractor. Used professionally, and I won’t let anyone on a jobsite use another saw.”

    2b. the people opposed to saw stop don’t own one

    2c. opinion

    2d. The claim is true because how can you judge something you have never used.

    You’re mixing up your reactions here, Princess. The speaker makes several claims. In 2b you focus on the evaluation or opinion claim that people who oppose SawStop do not use SawStop.

    In 2d, you suggest that the author has made the further claim that the people who don’t use SawStop don’t have the knowledge to judge its effectiveness. I agree that is the implication we can draw from the speaker’s remark. But it’s not what you said you were evaluating in 2b.

  2. 10. Claim is opinion, ethical and catergorical. Opinion because it is what he believes. Ethical because it makes you feel sympathy for th man and want to prevent someone else from getting hurt. It is causal because it says if this can save one person from suffering than it will be a world class accomplishment.
    4. Claim is factual, opinion, causal. Factual because status is of injuries given by consumer safety advocates. Opinion because a gadget could fix that. Causal because if we can get the gadget then we could save a lot of fingers.
    11. Opinion, insinuation, persuasive. Opinion bc it is what he believes, insinuation because it is the underlying statement that paying for a new blade is a price he would pay for keeping a body part. Persuasive because it compels the viewer to favor putting sawstop in place.
