Key Points • Persuasive writing includes a different point of view, reasons, and validation or justification • In persuasive writing, the speaker has a different point of view and tries to convince you to change yours • The speaker gives clarifies his point of view and ask you to take a stand and do something about the situation (this is called a call-to-action).
In addition, to his masterful use of persuasive appeals he brings pathos, ethos, and logic to his essay and utilizes all three in a fluid manner. Meanwhile, his tone throughout his essay captures the reader by being relatable and his word use unifies himself with the readers. At the same time, the structure he chose is extremely effective because of it simple bullet style main body that builds on the emotions of the reader. While the conclusion brings out a since of pride and patriotism to unite the people with a common goal. For these reasons, I believe that Thomas Jefferson and the Declaration of Independence set the bar high for what I means to write a persuasive
The linguistic features I found were: verbs, emotive language, pronouns, repetition, synonyms, idioms, metaphor, imagery, rhetorical question, connotations, metaphor and slang. When the author uses the phrases: ‘set an example’, ‘don’t ask your child to hand you your cigarettes or alcoholic drinks’, the verbs were used to command an action and the pronouns used also in these example ‘protect your child’ were to win the reader´s emotion and to address the reader directly to create a personal connection trough an informal yet serious text. I also presumed that text was informal because of the use of slang to make readers to understand the matter in a simple way instead of using many terminological words. In the text I could identify a few examples such as ‘smoking pot’; ‘tik’ and
Abstract: Language is the medium by which one’s psychological experiences, emotions and imaginations can be recreated in the minds of the reader or listener. Through ages language has been the vehicle with which humans have communicated ideas to each other. Language has not only the power to heal and to comfort but also to retrieve the suppressed experiences of an individual from the past. This paper seeks to discuss Toni Morrison’s novel A Mercy as a text that explores the common language uncommonly well in using it as a double edged sword. She subverts language in a rather complex play of words employing it as a powerful tool for the survival and continuance of existence for the voiceless.
The types of writing that I enjoyed the most are the Late Start Supported Opinion Paragraph and Persuasive because I like to inform or explain the subject to the reader and stating my opinion to influence the reader. The types of reading that I found difficult are narrative because sometimes the author wouldn’t give a clear explanation such as the events and where the setting takes place. I can use the writing process to generate and organize ideas and produce first drafts, revised drafts and final polished pieces of writing because I would organize my ideas on my rough copy before proceeding to the good copy. I have knowledge of various writing forms: summary, opinion, news report and a reflection because I would search it up to get an idea of the writing forms before I start to work on it. I am working on the ability to communicate with different audiences and purposes because sometimes I would get confused with my topic and I wouldn’t know what I am doing.
But do these devices actually act as a checks to the information gained by our instinctive judgements? This is what I shall explore in this essay. To communicate our judgements and observations, must use language as a medium. Language can come in many forms - verbal and nonverbal, represented in words, objects, or images, and continue subtleties such as tone, gesture, and symbolism. What is essential, however, is that both the sender and receiver are able to understand the words, the non-verbal cues, and references made.
It has been a debate for many years as to whether authentic materials can be used for the lower level learners. While some language teachers are of the opinion that they can be used for intermediate and graduate level students, others feel that primary and secondary level of students can also get exposed to authentic material. They feel that it might not expose the students to comprehensible input at the earliest stage of language acquisition. Authentic material might also contain difficult vocabulary items and complex language structures which might demotivate the learners specially lower level students. It is also time consuming for the teachers to collect, select and sort the materials for the course objectives.
In addition, there should be a proper arrangement of the structure of an argument. Moreover, style is important as it determines how to present an argument while using rhetorical techniques hence, adequate words should be chosen in order to have the greatest impact on the audience. It is better to memorise the speech in order to make it sound natural and afterward, for the delivery of the speech it is fundamental to make effective use of voice and and body language. Body language plays a vital role in public speaking, to make the audience feel comfortable and interested in the speech, a relaxed and upright posture should be adopted. However, lack of conviction or tension are felt by the audience.
Methodologists devise some new methods in the world of Language teaching, which focus on all aspects of Language (intensive reading), without focusing on learners’ interest. Teaching reading skill via intensive materials is, to some extent different and more difficult than teaching reading via extensive materials. Extensive teaching approaches are more useful not only for teaching aspects of language, but also to make learners interested to improve their readings’ ability. Day and Bamford (1998) “the term extensively in referring to a large amount of reading with a focus on the meaning of the text” (pp.34). So, by regarding to above mentioned point this approach and method should be devised and applied in teaching reading
