Charlie Chaplin is a great comic for his native land Britain, but even more so for the world. On the
stage he often wore tiny moustaches, huge pants and tai 1 coats that were perhaps more characteristic of
Europeans and may be not much of the British. Since more than half of the roles Chaplin played were
in silent films, people throughout the world had no difficulty understanding his films. With sound
movies, Chaplin created a nonsense 1anguage that sounded 1ike no known national ity and was accepted
and appreciated by people al 1 over the world. For most of his 1 ifetime he did not stay in his mother country; he traveled throughout the world to appear on stage for people of different nationalities Unit 3 Section A Vocabulary HI.

Compare the new welfare system with the old one and you would find a world of
the two. Under the new welfare system, the law encourages welfare clients to work on their own for a
gradual shift away from welfare, and this is not the case i n the past. Wei fare cl i ents now can develop
their talents to make money. In the past, they often cheated to bleed the system for a few extra dollars.
Now caseworkers wi11 gladly help their clients find appropriate jobs rather than act
like detectives to
try to seek out any unreported properties. Today many welfare clients have made a choice to live a life
of complete honesty and they tell the truth to caseworkers and declare any extra income they make.
In cases like this, caseworkers will feel greatly relieved because they don't need to search for any cheating as in the past.

XV. Some people prefer to live alone whereas some others have to live alone for one reason or another.
Those people believing in inspirational solitude argue that no companion is more companionable than
solitude. Literary giants such as William Wordsworth, John Milton and Henry Thoreau enjoyed living
alone on purpose. Hunters or explorers enjoy themselves as they venture out to tame the great wild
areas. On the other hand, there are some other people who have to 1ive alone due to various reasons:
being divorced, widowed or never married. Many of them feel bitter to live in solitude. They have no
one to talk to and as a result they talk at length to themselves and to their pets and to the television.

Smal l in size and 1 ight in weight, electronic dictionaries are convenient to use. They are easy to carry and students can take them anywhere they go. Whenever they come across a new word in reading, they can find out its meaning wi the help of an electronic dictionary. An electronic dictionary usual 1y contains
the information of several paper dictionaries. When students have one such dictionary, they actually
have more than one dictionary in hand. Meanwhile, electronic dictionaries are time-saving. They save
students from turning pages over to find the word. Instead, they only need to key in the word and the
meaning will appear on the screen. Considering all the above factors, no wonder more and more students
are using electronic dictionaries nowadays
