EFFECTIVENESS OF THESE TECHNIQUES/STRATEGIES

 THE STRATEGIES IN THIS ESSAY WERE: comparison and


contrast eg ‘and Roger thinking....and Elaine is thinking,
hyperbole eg “We’re talking about different planets in
completely different solar systems”, anecdote eg ‘Let’s
say a guy named Roger....(this can also be an example)
Conversational tone eg “So that means it was....let’s
see...”, analogy ... to a car, truck tyres, warranty, tune
up,..simile, repetition, allusion to Fairy tale romance,
humor

 THE WRITER’S PURPOSE IN THIS PIECE WAS TO PUT


FORWARD ARGUMENTS TO SUPPORT HIS IDEA THAT MEN
AND RELATIONSHIPS ARE VERY COMPLEX AND NEAR
IMPOSSIBLE TO DEVELOP AND SUSTAIN

MODULE 2 LANGUAGE AND COMMUNITY


 REMEMBER THAT DIALECTAL VARIATION MEANS....the standard
of the country’s English eg Trinidad Std English, and the Creole
of the country..eg Trinidad Creole which can now have Acrolect
(nearest to the Std but not the Std!!), mesolect and the
basilect.

 DIALECT IS NOT A DIALECTAL VARIATION...every country has


dialects, but only countries where slavery was eg in the USA
there is Creole eg in the deep South, New Orleans etc but in
England there is no Creole but there are dialect!!!

 REMEMBER TO GIVE AN EXAMPLE FOR EVERYTHING THAT THEY


ASK YOU FOR..

 FOCUS ON ACCENTS IS a non-linguistic factor
