In literature, rhetoric devices are used to add dimension, meaning, and depth to a text. Eric Warner and Graham Hough, the editors of Strangeness and Beauty: An Anthology of Aesthetic criticism, states that, “symbolism in literature really is: a form of expression” (page 242). Literature is seen as a form of communication for writers to convey their ideas. Symbolism provides a text to be read at two separate levels. The first level would be read superficially since interpretation is only done at surface level.
CHAPTER I INTRODUCTORY MATTERS TO THE EXEGESIS 1. Introduction In this chapter and the next chapter, I am going to carry out an exegesis of Hosea 3:1-5.

The introduction sets the tone of the work; it typically should grab the readers’ attention and put forward the essay thesis, that is, to justify the necessity of describing its object. The main body depicts the object of the essay while the conclusion recaps its significance.
The goal of this essay is to analyze Joan Morgan argument and her use of rhetoric. In order to analyze Morgan's argument and her use of rhetoric, I plan on critiquing the effectiveness of Morgan's
MB DAMANE 23242868 LPRA 322 ASSIGNMENT GILE’S EFFORT MODEL Introduction In my essay I am going to critically discuss Gile’s Effort Model. History Daniel Gille who is a theorist, proposed the effort model where he talks abot the difficulties and efforts that are involved in interpreting tasks and the strategies needed to defeat them.
Furthermore, the primary purpose of this study is to describe about the types of transitivity found in the. This study also attempts to deepen the analysis of transitivity verb and applying theory and its parameter which is proposed by Hooper and Thompson (1980). II. RESEARCH METHOD Research method is important to guide in analyzing the data and help the reader to understand the research. Library research was applied to this study which means using some books to analyze the problem.
Within the generic label of autoethnography there are a number of different sub genres which various theorists have conceived upon analysis of the patterns emerging in autoethnographical writing. Scholars chart out the presence of two main approaches of autoethnography in literature - ‘analytic’ and ‘evocative’. Evocative autoethnography engages the reader in the understanding of the narrative and analytic autoethnography not only calls for a personal understanding of the text but also makes visible how the researcher’s memories combine with social science theories to construct interpretations of certain events. Van Mannen in his Tales of the Field (2011) has distinguished three forms of autoethnographic studies-realist; impressionist and confessionist. While Carolyn Ellis and Richardson have talked about both the impressionist and the realist story, the terms of reference varied.
“Rhetorical Mode” is just a fancy way of saying “the way the author presents the subject.” Rhetorical Mode is related to organization and structure as well as to rhetorical strategies. Inductive, Deductive, Abductive, practical, and enthymeme are multiple types of Argument. An enthymeme is an argument that doesn’t give you enough information between the thesis and the conclusion.
There is a wide range of alternatives which may represent a particular relation, for example a chart with some data or a true-life picture. Similar to interpersonal, the ideational metafunction contains semiotic modes which “offer an array of choices, of different ways in which objects, and their relations to other objects and to processes, can be represented” (Kress & van Leeuwen, 2006, p. 42). The semiotic modes are responsible for the representation of an accurate meaning apart from the system in which they are created, that is they have to be understandable in the environment experienced by people. The last requirement – the textual metafunction is about how the text cooperate with other signs in order to create a coherent meaning. Due to the visual grammar, it can be distinguished “different compositional arrangements to allow the realization of different textual meanings” (Kress & van Leeuwen, 2006, p. 43).
Modal (Amod) which indicates the speaker’s degree of commitment to or viewpoint on what s/he is saying. It contribute to the interpersonal function and falls into two main groups. First, Comment Adjuncts which comment on the clause as whole and are separated off from the rest of the clause by commas such as ‘unfortunately’,' significantly',' admittedly' etc., as noted in Halliday and Matthiessen (2014, p. 191). Second, Mood Adjuncts signify hedging or modulating the proposition of a message
The general use of theory is to explain the questions of why, or why a particular event or phenomena occurs (Sutton & Staw, 1995). Theory in rhetorical criticism is the particular lens the critic uses to evaluate and craft an argument. This effects how a rhetorical critic uses evidence to support their argument. Collecting data, in the form of field notes or surveys, is important to methodologies like quantitative and qualitative studies, a strong argument is the support, logic, and evidence needed in rhetorical criticism (Christians, 2001).
Determine the central ideas or conclusions of a text; trace the text’s explanation or depiction of a complex process, phenomenon, or concept; provide an accurate summary of the text. 3. Follow precisely a complex multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks, attending to special cases or exceptions defined in the text. Craft and Structure (Question, Visualize) – How does the text say it?
Reading Gilgamesh was important because it gives the reader insight and an understanding of what was important to the people who lived during the time that Gilgamesh was written. It also allows us to see how things have changed from what we are used to reading to what we could have been reading before. Repetition in a story can sometimes seem a little annoying to the reader. However, I think it could be a very important characteristic when reading certain material.
