What Really Matters
The following story uses words that contain four, five, and six syllable words. The syllables within these words contain various phonetic elements previously introduced.

Avoid generalizations about people. Try not to say someone is unreasonable just to have something to say. Or do not pretend you are incredulous over someone’s actions when you really are not so flabbergasted. This kind of overreaction is actually preposterous and can also be irresponsible. You do not want to stereotype a person. As an example, the scientist left his laboratory to become a politician. Is that right or wrong? Only he can decide. Some athletes have earned professorships. Does that seem ludicrous—not at all. The truth is that each person must make his own decisions. Read biographies. A person can start as a technician and become a physician. What is desirable for one would be an extraordinary mistake for another. Don’t give consideration to a person’s religious denomination or accent. Give people full consideration, and especially take the time to get to know the most splendiferous person of all: you!

A Scandalous Commentary
The following story uses words that contain four, five, and six syllable words. The syllables within these words contain various phonetic elements previously introduced.

This communication is preposterous, extraordinary, reactionary, incomprehensible, and irresponsible. I am incredulous that such a derogative and questionable document can be so passionately and intoxicatingly pitched with such an unmitigated lack of sagacity. This supposedly biographical and empirical presentation contains a preponderance of false generalizations and incomprehensible and indefensible innuendo. This document is an unfortunate and intellectually illegitimate publication. No consideration is made of the qualifications or intellectual capabilities of others. I am flabbergasted by this unprecedented acquiescence to and preoccupation with the interests of a tiny minority. The majority, on the other hand, endures tribulations and unprecedented pandemonium. Is it not unreasonable to ask us to give consideration to a commissioner whose sole interest is in the reinforcement of and the continuing establishment of a depersonalized bureaucracy? If we are ever to experience a rejuvenation, we must eliminate deficiencies.
