    I am slightly perplexed if in Question 2 of the Language paper, are you awarded marks if you talk about the typography? For example; its bold and stands out to the reader.

    If this is regarding the AQA Language paper (4705), then yes you will; however I recommend you don't talk about the typography as that is very basic and the marks awarded 'I think' would be sustainably low. I suggest you think outside the box and use devices of oxymoron, & contrasting words etc.. Also when talking about the headline explain why it's also effective.

    Best Of Luck!

    You can but I think it's considered very band 1ish. It's better to focus on the language and features used

    For example, lets say the title is 'Joy & Misery'. Here you would state the use of 'juxtaposition' straight after this you would give your opinion on why it is effective, "It gives a hindsight that article may express the side of the positives and negatives." and relate to the article and reader as well.

    Kinda hope that helps!

    Sure would! I also would recommend you to watch a selection of videos from 'Mr Bruff' he's great at this language course.

    NEVER SAY THAT. My teacher said you won't be awarded if you say that.
