Commentary for two language production pieces: Mills & Boon and tabloid article The audience of my Mills & Boon romance is people who like to read romance novels. The purpose is to entertain, and the form is an extract from a novel. The audience of my tabloid article is people who are interested in news. The purpose is to inform and to persuade.

Thus I looked at the sentence types, use of bias and many other linguistic techniques to form my own article. We were also given a passage from a Mills & Boon novel which I used as my model, by examining the techniques, such as objectification and use of verbs. 595 words ?? ?? ?? ??
