Variety of Expression

Sep 5, 2022
link

One of the finest ways to grasp a text is to articulate it properly, to deliver it with emotion that reflects what it represents. One must comprehend both the meaning of the words and the logic of each sentence in order to match the appropriate expression to each word or phrase. 

Expression is the act of expressing one’s feelings or thoughts. Expression in speech and reading refers to the pitch, tone, volume, accent, and rhythm used in speaking or oral reading

Different Variety of Expression:  

Emphasis  

  • The term “emphasis” refers to paying more attention to something in order to illustrate its importance. 
  • Bolding the typeface of a certain word in a document to draw attention to it is an example of emphasis. 

Tone

  • It is a literary phrase that describes the mood evoked by an author’s word choice and how the text might make a reader feel. 
  • The tone of a piece of literature can elicit a wide range of feelings and opinions.  
  • Tone can also be expressed in a variety of textual styles, ranging from terse to prosaic. 

Intonation

  • It is largely concerned with pitch change in the voice. 
  • It can be used to convey changes in emotional expression (e.g., surprise, rage, or pleasure), as well as grammatical functions. 
  • Falling intonation, rising intonation, and fall-rise intonation are the three basic intonation patterns in English.  

Strategy to read the expression  

  • When you are reading, you need to think about the character and narrator’s voice. 
  • When reading dialogue, you need to raise the pitch of your voice.  
  • When you are narrating, you need to lower the pitch of your voice.  
  • When it comes to questions, the pitch of your voice should go up at the end of a question. 
  • When it comes to exclamations, you need to raise both the volume and the pitch of your voice. 
  • Remember to pause. Longer pauses for full stops and shorter pauses for commas.
