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. For my Mills & Boon romance I chose the title 'A Seductive Encounter' because it has connotations of love and romance.

When I was writing both pieces I tried to create an authentic style, therefore the article had to resemble the style of a real tabloid article, and my romance novel had to resemble the style of those published by Mills & Boon. To achieve this I used the tabloid article we were given to analyse as my model to base my article around. 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 ?? ?? ?? ??
