Chandni Jounija (1st draft) Commentary on editorial The chosen audience for my editorial are not just supposedly people interested in politics and education, as I wanted it to appeal to a wide range of people, so even those with a basic knowledge of state and private schools, and politics would appreciate it. I have done this, because I believe my editorial is expanded in such a diverse way, that it not just involves, but engages many people. The primary purpose for my editorial is to persuade, although it has an important secondary purpose to inform the society about the discrimination that is being prolonged in our democratic state. I chose to write a persuasive as well as an informative article, and aimed it at a wide audience spectrum, because the purpose will embed many rhetorical features, and also allow me to use an almost sardonic, yet sarcastic tone, to engage my intended audience. ...read more.


And so gives my editorial a logical structural argument, in which heightens my statements and opinions. I have noticed that a key feature for broadsheet articles is the tone itself. Mixing formal lexis establishes a relationship between the writer and the reader, whilst settling on a much informative tone suitable for an educated audience. And therefore prior to this, I used several sophisticated lexical choices. "However, politicians on the other hand are a bunch of hypocritical elitists who have all been privileged to a superior education," I emulated this personal tone by adopting an almost chatty and sardonic tone.

The reader would also need to consider familiarity with the specific meanings in the semantic fields, which may also include politician names. Phonetic representation of colloquial terms such as "damn", and "cabinet boys", also help to give the piece a structure and hints on humour. Lexical cohesion is also formed throughout the text with fluidity to continue the lyrical theme and patter of phonology by using poetic and lyrical themes throughout conveying real emotion, 'poor souls'. Rhetorical questions 'where does the equality exist in that?" Alliteration, 'posh private political parliament." The use of these alliteration helps to give my my piece an almost transitive flow As a whole I believe that my article has not just produced a statement, but also has developed a great argument, over a topic so conterversial in our current society. ...read more.
