    Best answer: An Immigrant, per the USCIS, has followed our rules regarding immigration and granted some level of immigrant status.

    Before that, a person is either a "RESIDENT ALIEN" or "ILLEGAL ALIEN" and the insinuation of some impoliteness is just deceptive. It is NOT rude, mean, impolite to state that a person is "SINGLE" or "MARRIED". It's their status.

    If a person is an alien, they are technically an alien. NOT an immigrant per LEGAL language.

    Best answer: No. Try: "A number of civilisations (independently) invented paper".

    But you could use: "There were a number of civilisations which invented paper" Just the addition of that one word makes the sentence "correct", but I still think that most native speakers would use the shorter version quoted by me earlier.

    " Despite finding out her name, her biological parents wished her away with." Especially the "wished her away with" It sounded right in my head but I'm not sure how my English teacher would take it.

  • What really is "manipulation"? how it feels to be coerced and manipulated? or what is difference between "Coerced" and "manipulated"?

    Best answer: prime example [trump,repub's and fox news... For example, if I point a gun at your head and say "give me all your money!" That's Coercion. If I tell you a fake sad story about not having enough money to bury my dead wife and you offer me money. That's manipulation. As far as why, there are... show more
    Best answer: prime example [trump,repub's and fox news... For example, if I point a gun at your head and say "give me all your money!" That's Coercion. If I tell you a fake sad story about not having enough money to bury my dead wife and you offer me money. That's manipulation.

    As far as why, there are many possibilities, here are a few:
    1. A need to attain feelings of power and superiority in relationships with others
    2. A want and need to feel in control (aka. control freak)
    3. To gain a feeling of power over others in order to raise self-esteem...tricked,fooled,lied to.Both involve trying to get someone else or others to do what you want them to do. They are similar in meaning.
    Coercion implies more physical force and/or threats of the same. Coercion doesn't have to be for selfish gains. Coercion can be by a group as well as by a single individual.
    Manipulation is milder and is a sort of psychological persuasiveness and is used basically of one person trying to get another person to do something, and is often selfish.
    If I force you to go with me, like manhandle you, drag you along, that would be coercion or kidnapping. Kidnapping is extreme coercion.

  • How come in Canada they spell “favorite color” as “favourite colour” as in British English?

    Best answer: It's not just Canada that uses traditional English spelling, it's the English-speaking world except the USA. But since that's not what you asked, here's why.

    It all goes back to that Revolutionary War thing. The folks in the Thirteen Colonies were being taxed all to hell and back by the English crown, and they wanted to distance themselves from England as much as possible. Just like in conflicts today, the guys behind the revolt against the crown knew the value of psychological warfare. Changing the spelling and / or pronunciation of certain words was a way to insult their enemy.

    The folks in what is now Ontario (Upper Canada at the time) might not have been happy with the English taxes either, but they had a different problem to deal with. That problem was called France, who owned a whole big piece of the land up there and were openly at war with England. The English eventually won control of Canada from the French, after a series of nasty battles, and many French Canadians are still cheesed off about it.
