    Hi,

    I'm about to do my GCSE Latin prose lit. exam on Monday and I'd like to know this: do you need to know the 'names' of the stylistic features used in the passages (eg. Pleonasm, asyndeton, chiasmus ) or is it enough to simply identify and explain them? I know that in GCSE English you are allowed to simply identify and achieve full marks for that point, so is it safe to assume it is the same with Latin?

    Thank you

    I think it will be more impressive if you know the names, but as long as your points are good, you shoudn't really lose marks for not recalling the word "asyndeton".

    In any case, I think it would probably look worse to misname a technique... include the ones you do know, but don't guess ones that you don't.
