Elements of writing – the building blocks of a sentence or piece of writing:
- Adjective – “a word naming an attribute of a noun, such as sweet, red, or technical.”
- Adverb – “a word or phrase that modifies the meaning of an adjective, verb, or another adverb, expressing manner, place, time, or degree (e.g. gently, here, now, very). Some adverbs, for example, sentence adverbs, can also be used to modify whole sentences.”
- Noun – “a word (other than a pronoun) used to identify any of a class of people, places, or things ( common noun ), or to name a particular one of these ( proper noun).”
- Verb – “a word used to describe an action, state, or occurrence, and forming the main part of the predicate of a sentence, such as hear, become, happen.”
- Rhetorics – “the art of effective or persuasive speaking or writing, especially the exploitation of figures of speech and other compositional techniques.”
This piece is only here to support another of my posts: Food For Prose. Think of it as being Appendix A.
