‘Perspective’ is a tricky concept. When you’re writing, it’s easy to forget that words don’t always mean the same to others as they do to you. Here’s a poll I use in my classes to get students thinking about perspective-taking, but it works just as well for we-writers to see the confusion that can result from what we might think is clear. Check all the definitions of the word ‘turkey’ that apply to you and leave me a comment with what is the most obvious definition (from your perspective).
When you checked the results, were you surprised?
