A quick acronym which I always refer to in my paper two is AFOREST:

Alliteration.
Facts.
Opinion.
Repetitive/rhetorical questions.
Emotive language.
Shock tactics.
Triples.

When doing a comparative answer you can generally use all of these things to write about and compare as all writers use these techniques so you can be sure most of them will be in the pieces you're given.

Hope this helps You can always ask me more questions if you need help, I'd be happy to! good luck with your exam x

Hey, I'm not sure, but wouldn't this be counted as language analysis which would be A02 though? Question 2 in the language paper only asks you to compare extracts (and quotes) and infer the meaning, which is A01. I don't think you'd get marks from talking about things such as alliteration, as this would be A02.

I agree and examiners in the past have said that many people make that mistake every year

Yes of course!, that's why I said it was good for comparitive, however, I also said about how all of these things will be featured in a text and you can pick and choose what you use from the list, therefore for question two things like fact and opinion can be used, whereas the rest can be picked for any question. Sorry for any confusion!

You shouldn't talk about language features because you won't gain any marks for them. Maybe research past examples of the question and analyse the things the person has commented on. The AFOREST is a good acronym as it list persuasive techniques but don't use it for this question. You should write about similar themes or points the writer coveys and quite the lines that show this but don’t comment on how. Hope this helps.
