Introduction

Hong Kong Introduction: I'm writing a report about two documents that I have read and analysed. One of the documents is obtained from the internet and the other is paper based. Both of them are about Hong Kong but of course the style of language used in both documents is different. Aims: * To write a 1000 word report/essay * To compare the similarities and differences between two documents * To identify the linguistic features within both documents Background: I had to do task one and task two in order to obtain information for writing this report. I selected two documents about the same subject which I read, synthesised and highlighted important information. Then I picked out 1000 words from each to compared and identified similarities and difference between them. I searched for relevant images and pictures to create a power point presentation. Findings: Title of 1st document The book that I read is called "The Insight Guide to Hong Kong" which is edited by Scott Rutherford and Brian Bell. ...read more.

Middle

into an elixir for immortality. A painting of god was brought to Hong Kong from China in 1915 and was first place in a small temple in Wan Chai, before being moved to Wong Tai Sin Temple. Backed by the formidable Lion Rock and facing the sea, geomancers agreed that this new site had favourable feed back from the god. By raising money from the temple's donation boxes, the old temple was demolished and a new temple was constructed. Title of the 2nd document The internet web site from which I fetched the second document is www.discoverhongkong.com. This document is represented with a lot more colourful images and description of each image. There's so much to see and do in Hong Kong no matter what time of the year it is. Therefore, you should never miss out on any opportunity to visit Hong Kong. It is certainly a city of stunning contrasts where you find anything from traditional types to modern types. ...read more.

Conclusion

It is because it explains the history of Hong Kong, culture and the life style. Most of its linguistic features were easy to understand but there were a few Chinese words used as well which did not have explanation next to them, hence making it a difficult piece of document. The second document is better in its linguistic features than the first document because it is straightforward to read and empathize. The colourful and magnificent images of the attractions add to the interest of the reader. It provides most of the information that a tourist will need for example the information about the hotels, restaurants, transport and the must see attractions. Recommendations: Hong Kong is a small place but don't misunderstand! Within this small city, you can find anything at all. Hong Kong is the largest shopping paradises in the World. You can also find any food from any country in the Restaurants in Hong Kong. In fact, one of the most striking characteristics of Hong Kong is this interweaving of seeming contradictions and of the exotic and the technically advanced. There are as many skyscrapers here as you are likely to see anywhere. ...read more.

    For example, many restaurants and security companies have no choice but to increase their charges to offset the burden of higher labour costs.
