Writing to argue - Shawon Notes

English Language > Writing > Writing to argue


Useful techniques

  • Rhetorical questions are good for making the reader think eg "Do uniforms really create better citizens?" Keep these to a minimum though.
  • Emotive language appeals to the readers' emotions. It can help convince them.
  • Always counter opposing views politely.

An argument concerns an issue about which people, quite reasonably, hold different views. During the process of presenting your argument you should show that you recognise that opposing views exist.
