Inciting incident in a plot is an event or a point that arrives at the beginning of a play, story book, or a film that disturbs the actions and life of a protagonist, and sets him or her to pursue the mission or quest; the inciting incident starts the action of a story, and establishes the main question readers want to know. Choose one example.
E.g. The inciting incident of Richard Connell's "The Most Dangerous Game" occurs in the evening, when Rainsford and General Zaroff dine and discuss hunting. It starts off as a friendly conversation about their hunting adventure; however, it ends with a confession by General Zaroff that he kills people as a "game," and for fun while hunting.
E.g. #2 In "Star Wars," the inciting incident occurs when Darth Vader attacks the ship of Princess Leia. Prior to this event, civil war was going on there. It happens when the Empire exhibits its true color by boarding a ship illegally, which is supposed to be on a "diplomatic mission."
a specialized set of terms and language used in a particular context and setting. It is especially common to find jargon in an industry, such as in law, medicine, academia, or an art or sport. People who are not a part of this industry or group may not be able to understand the jargon as the words are either obscure terms or have different definitions than the regular usage of the word.
E.g. The Ministry of Truth, which concerned itself with news, entertainment, education, and the fine arts. The Ministry of Peace, which concerned itself with war. The Ministry of Love, which maintained law and order. And the Ministry of Plenty, which was responsible for economic affairs. Their names, in Newspeak: Minitrue, Minipax, Miniluv, and Miniplenty.
(1984 by George Orwell)
George Orwell created some interesting examples of jargon in his dystopian novel 1984. In this quote from the novel, Orwell shows how the jargon both obfuscates the real purpose of each ministry and how their abbreviations can further make them incomprehensible to regular people.

E.g." Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."

E.g. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness,..." A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
a comparatively short, non-narrative poem in which a single speaker presents a state of mind or an emotional state; it retains some of the elements of song which is said to be its origin: lyric poems were usually accompanied by a lyre, a musical instrument resembling a harp; some of the best examples of lyric poetry come from Italian and English sonnets;, the mood is musical and emotional. The writer of a lyric poem uses words that express his state of mind, his perceptions, or his feelings.
E.g. William Wordsworth's "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" is also a lyric poem:
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
