What is an Issue?

By issue, we mean a problem or question that people debate, such as, "How does the use of specific terms by the media affect our perception of the world?" We might ask, for instance, how the widespread use of the term "Generation X" has shaped the general public's perception of 18 to 30 year olds. In the previous assignment, you created a list of issues raised by your readings in Exploring Language and by your own experiences.
