Which rhetorical devices are generally recognised by the AQA exam board?Watch
Would rhetoric such as traductio be recognised as a correct use of terminology? I'm somewhat hesitant as to using a term such as this in an exam in case I am to not get marked for this.
Thanks in advance.
There is an awareness that students of average ability can be taught lists of terminology, and are able to spot some examples in the given text, but only those of higher ability can analyse the precise effects of language choice on the reader. This higher level analysis will probably make some use of terminology, but that will not be the feature that secures most of the marks.
What would you suggest in regards to my methodology?
