    For question 3 on language paper one and i think paper 2 theres a question about structure. What different structure techniques are there? I know flashback, dual narrative, omission, catalyst, exposition, but I can't find any anywhere, i have a list at school but that won't help me right now as im not in school😂

    here’s some more :
    Repetition – of words, phrases or whole sentences.
    Connectives – eg meanwhile, finally, although. These could be used to shift the reader’s focus.
    Sentence types – eg multi-clause or single clause. For example, a multi-clause sentence could be used to build up layers of description to create a vivid setting.
    Sentence length – eg short to show tension.
    Paragraph length – eg single line paragraphs to focus the reader.
    Change of tense – eg from present to past.
    Fictional narratives may also follow an overall structure, which may fit broadly into typical stages.
    Exposition – the setting of the scene for the reader, this could be a description of setting or the backstory of a character.
    Crisis point or climax – an exciting or tense part of the text.
    Resolution – the conclusion of the narrative, where conflicts are resolved or meaning is revealed.
