Word choice gives Swift artillery to create satire in A Modest Proposal In A Modest Proposal Swift uses several different words to create satire one of which is the word breeders He uses the term breeders in reference to the women In several paragraphs he talks about these breeders and their role I calculate there may be about 200000 couples whose wives are breedersSwift 2 The way that he refers to the women as breeders instead of mothers wives or women creates satire Instead of talking about them he talks about what they do Or what they are supposed to do This makes good artillery because referring to the women as breeders gives them a significant role and satire is created because instead of being known as women and mothers they are now breeders In beginning his proposal Swift uses the word scheme before he gets into too much detail about what he has in mind This word is an excellent word to use to start off As to my own part having turned my thoughts for many years upon this important subject and maturely weighed the several schemes of our projectorsSwift 1 Scheme meaning A systematic plan of action very well describes the plan that is later laid out by swift to solve the issues he talks about There is likewise another great advantage in my schemeSwift 1 He immediately explains how his scheme will prevent voluntary abortions and that horrid practice of women murdering their bastard childrenSwift 12 Its ironic how he says that then a little bit further down he says I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London that a young healthy child well nursed is at a year old a most delicious nourishing and wholesome food whether stewed roasted baked or broiledSwift 2 Its pure satire to not abort the child so that they can be eaten at the age of one dont murder
