扬州市2018-2019学年上学期期中考高三英语作文 感叹号的滥用

  请阅读下列材料,并按要求用英语写一篇150词左右的文章。
People use more than one exclamation mark (“Sounds good!!!”), and all caps (“GREAT IDEA!”), and repetition of letters (“soooo tired”) in social media. These are the three main ones that show enthusiasm, according to Deborah Tannen, a professor at Georgetown University. It is the same for the Chinese character “ 哈(ha)”, which we use to represent laughter. We usually text two, three or more of these characters to indicate how happy or amused we are. Using many of these kinds of symbols and characters is clearly becoming a cultural phenomenon.
“HEY STEVE!” someone recently emailed me. Both my name and “Hey” were in caps, and all five sentences in the message ended with exclamation marks. At first glance I assumed the message was a loved one writing from a plane that was going down. It turned out to be someone I hardly knew, discussing minor household chores and thanking me for something that had taken no effort on my part.
I hate it, that if we don't put six exclamation marks in an email or text we sound like a 13-year-old girl. But when used too much, the exclamation mark makes no sense to the receiver, losing its intended meaning.

Possible version 1(支持):
Today there goes a cultural phenomenon that people use many exclamation marks, caps and repeated letters or characters to express their strong emotions in social media. Some people support it while others don't.
Generally, I'm totally in favor of this phenomenon. To begin with, using these symbols and repetition of letters or characters contribute to a better mutual communication among people, because it shows how close and concerned you are. Moreover, it can mirror the genuine sincerity while chatting with your friends or colleagues in social media because there is no need for you to be that formal, otherwise your emotions like enthusiasm and happiness would in a sense not be smoothly and fully expressed and accepted. Last but not least, we should be open to new expression to keep up with fashion trends.
So it's quite safe to conclude that this phenomenon makes for an effective and sincere communication. 
Possible version 2(反对):
With people using many exclamation points, caps and repeated letters or characters to express their strong emotions in social media, the public are divided into two opposite groups: “For” and “Against”.
I tend to take the “Against” side for three reasons. Firstly, using these symbols and repetition of letters or characters, senders may make it difficult for receivers to understand what they really want to convey, especially when they are not very familiar with each other. Secondly, we will definitely leave others an impression that we are so naive when communicating with others in this way. Thirdly, it's a kind of offence to receivers especially on a very formal occasion because it is not that widely accepted.
In short, not only will the practice cause misunderstandings among users, but it will even sound a little bit offensive to the receivers.
