  • Allititration - Makes the text catchy - quick to read - grabs attention.
  • Emotive Language - The attitude and emotions of the aurthor are trensferred or made clear to the reader.
  • Imagery,Similes,Metaphors - All Imagery gives the person/animal/thing being described the characteristics od something else. It therefore enlivens descriptions by helping us to see these people/animals/things in a new light - in a way we may have never seen them or thought about them before. Metaphores are more compact and tighter in their comnparative discription than similies.
