hey everyone!! i'm finally back
to make up for my lack of mx1 notes (eheheh) i'll share my english technique list
this is of course very useful for the common module reading task, but can also be useful for finding quotes in mod a, b and c too!

there are SOOOO many literary techniques here that i've sorted it into two groups, common and fringe – by no means should you memorise them all! this is just an overall guide to refer to whenever you want to sharpen your eye for discerning techniques :p

also, where there are fine distinctions between several similar techniques, i tried my best to explain the difference between the techniques!
further, i didn't include any techniques that i felt would not come up during hsc study, so as to not make the list too overwhelming 😣

each technique is also colour coded by "usefulness" although this really varies by person, so these are very rough gradings.

this took soooooo long to make, but i hope it can be something that can be passed down through many HSC years to help make a sometimes tedious process less bothersome

hsc is coming up really soon, so best of luck to everyone!!!!

yuki ^^
