Annotating structure

Look at the overall text to begin your annotation. Can you spot patterns in the structure? Look out for:

  • paragraph lengths
  • repeated words introducing paragraphs
  • signpost sentences introducing paragraphs (like 'Firstly...', 'Secondly...', 'In addition...')
  • headings and subheadings
  • time and place

Once you have spotted structural features of the text, make a note of the feature used. Then, to develop your idea, add a note to briefly consider the effect of that feature - why has it been used? What is the writer emphasising or highlighting by using it?

Annotating language

Don’t highlight all the language features you spot – you’ll end up highlighting the whole text. Pick out the first example of each literary device you see, and after that, only the more interesting ones. They might be interesting because they’re unusual, or because they’re doing a particularly good job of creating an effect linked to purpose or audience.

Do pick out individual words which you can explore closely – ones with particular connotations, for example, or ones which seem especially significant. These are usually adjectives, or phrases that have used particular techniques to conjure up a specific image.

В этой встрече было что-то нереальное - нечто, заставившее снова напрячься все его нервные клетки. Он поймал себя на том, что непроизвольно пятится от незнакомцев. Тот, что был пониже ростом, смерил его холодным взглядом. - Сюда, мистер Беккер.
