anecdote- it makes the argument easier for the reader to relate to because it stops relying on abstract logic and becomes a concrete example or situation.

alliteration- draws attention to particular words, more effective because it stands out. Why does the writer want to emphasise these words?

rhetorical q-  engages the reader. the reader is more likely to respond to the argument since they are forced to think. can also be used in a satircal manner (sarcastic) to make the opposite argument look ridiculous. be careful not to over use them though because then they are not effective

This is just off the top of my head- not exam board or anything, and just GCSE.

If you want any more, I am happy to respond :) good luck with any upcoming exams
