Okay so I have an English Language Paper 2 exam on Monday and i've got an adequate list of devices and examples of them ect. But just for revision purposes could you guys help me form a long list of possible devices which could show up in GCSE and also their effect on the reader and their purpose, thanks in advance😄

Strong adjectives/verbs etc = emphasis or immersion

Hyperbole = convey the writer's emotion

Metaphor = paints a visual image and/or immersion

Simile = same as above

Onomatopoeia = immersion

Semantic/lexical fields = immersion

Emotive language = invoke emotion in the reader

Rhetoric (Direct Address, Rule of 3, R. Questions) = emphasis/invokes emotion/strengthens argument

Alliteration = adds to tone of piece, immersing reader

Hope that helps! Feel free to add anything if I've missed it out! Hope all goes well on Monday!
