Unit 5 The Tapestry of Friendship
Key to the Exercises Text comprehension I. Decide which of the following best states the author's purpose of writing. C II. Judge, according to the text, whether the following statements are true or false. 1. 2. 3. T (Refer to Paragraphs 1 and 2.) T (Refer to Paragraph 3.) F (Refer to Paragraph 4. The shift was not simply from men to women. It

represented in depth a shift from one type of friendship to another. In other words, female friendship depicted in movies nowadays was distinct in nature from male friendship portrayed in earlier movies.) 4. 5. T (Refer to Paragraph 8.) T (Refer to Paragraph 16.)

III. Answer the following questions. 1. Refer to Paragraph 2. She thought it was a trivial movie, particularly with regard to its dull plot. At the same time she found it gentle and affecting on the grounds that the movie described in detail the characteristics of the friendship between two women. 2. Refer to Paragraph 3. Because in the past men were the exclusive images of friendship depicted in movies and they were presented as the only inheritors of a primitive capacity for friendship. Women, on the other hand, were portrayed as incapable of friendship, taking their pleasure in making critical remarks about each other. Nowadays, however, female friendship was becoming a fashionable theme of movies, taking the place of male friendship. 3. Refer to Paragraph 7. Male friendship, i.e. the bonding relationship between buddies, is established on the need for cooperation in the activities that men are engaged in or in the adverse situations they are confronted with. In other words, without the need to do things together, there would probably be no buddies at all. In contrast, female friendship borders on love, the need for mutual emotional support. Women friends desire to be together as a result of spiritual attachment, regardless of whether they are involved in the same act or not. 4. Refer to Paragraphs 8?0. Men become buddies only when they have undergone together competitive, adverse or dangerous situations like sports games and wars, but women are not real friends unless they have exchanged three loathsome secrets. This fact shows again that the male friendship is activity-oriented while female friendship is

emotion-rooted. 5. Refer to Paragraph 17. Because what men described as friendship was nothing of the kind at all to the woman. As she saw it, when two women see each other only once a year, they cannot count as best friends; when two women do not call each other long distance without a real reason, they don't count as intimates; and when two women don't have dinner together alone without the company of their spouses, they don't count as chums. But in such situations, men can still describe themselves as bosom friends. IV. Explain in your own words the following sentences. 1. 2. 3. 4. Slowly, the movie gave a panoramic picture of the characteristics of friendship. This was not simply a shift from one fashion to another, but a trend toward more The tendency to present only men as capable of true friendship was challenged by Buddies act tough to show off to each other, so would not reveal weaknesses; friends

realistic and natural depictions in cinema-making. the appearance of a more subtle approach. show their need for each other and are ready to confess weaknesses. Structural analysis of the text We can summarize the author's viewpoint with the following sentence: A buddy is a fine life-companion but a friend is that part of the race with which you can be human. The parallel sentences used to show the major differences are: Buddies bonded, but friends loved. Buddies faced adversity together, but friends faced each other. Buddies seemed to "do" things together; friends simply "were" together. Rhetorical features of the text 1. Joining clauses with a coordinator: Buddies bonded, but friends loved. (Paragraph 8) Buddies faced adversity together, but friends faced each other. (Paragraph 8) 2. Joining clauses with a subordinator: Men affect each other in the reflection of noble or friendly acts, whilst women ask fewer proofs and more signs and expressions of attachment. (Paragraph 7) Men often keep their buddies in these categories, while women keep a special category for friends. (Paragraph 9) 3. Joining clauses with a punctuation mark: Buddies hang tough together; friends hang onto each other. (Paragraph 11) Buddies try to keep the worst from each other; friends confess it. (Paragraph 12) Note that in these sentences the semicolon cannot be replaced by a comma.
