First mode to develop because resemebles speech. Use of first person perspestive and the context is usually based on personal preferences.
5 of 15
Poetic
Develops gradually - requiring skills in crafting + shaping language but is encouraged early on because of its creativity. Phonological features such as rhyme, rhythm, alliteration as well as descriptive devices such as adjectives + similies = common
6 of 15
Transactional
Develops last - around secondary school age once children have finally dissociated speech from writing. In style of academic essays - more impersonal in stle and tone 3rd person used to create a detached tone.
7 of 15
Tranactional continued
Formal sentence structures + graphological features are used to signify seactions and ideas = structure tends to be chronological

P - ideas compliments R genres as these include examples of texts chronological and non - chronological
