Comments

Brendan Dunlop

Mispelling of 'onomatopoeia', 'repetition', 'rhythm' does not give this revision source credibility. Especially as it's English revision. I'd be embarrassed.

Toby

i agree with brendan, but otherwise helpful.

and 'juxtapose' is wrong, that is the verb form (to juxtapose), it should be 'what is a *juxtaposition*?

Alice

a good set of key words, but extremely poor spelling which lets you down and other people shouldn't rely on.

Jasmine Scurll

Again i agree with the above comments, however, if it wasn't for the mispelling of many of the relevant words, it is a good resource to use indeed.  

Darkest Vampire

its useful but not a lot of standard english hehe
