text analyse; genre, field, tenor, mode
I have three different texts and you need to provide each text’s GENRE, FIELD, TENOR and MODE descriptions. You need to write and academic paragraph for each description.
I already write the GENRE types of each texts and I also provided below explanations and questions that will guide/help you when you write the paragraphs. Your paragraphs will be the answer of below questions. No need to REFERENCE!
