The Clear Difference Between Report and Descriptive Text
Do you know what the difference between report and descriptive text is? I have an article posted discussing the differences between them. However some comments are still proposed to ask what a report text is actually, what a descriptive text is, and how they differ from each other.
I believe the article is good enough to build a better understanding about the variety of text types which this blog has been concerning since it published it first posts. The comments which are given in responses for some example of particular text types really attract me, especially who make note whether some texts given as the example belong to report or descriptive.
As stated in previous posts, descriptive and report text are written to present the caught picture of the object to readers. Both descriptive and report text functionally describe things, explain what and how they are.
To get clearer definition, I have browsed to find more vivid definition what descriptive and report texts are. Bellow are the sources which give more understanding of report and descriptive text and what the easy way to differ them.
Accoording to many experts, lessonplanspage.com explains that Information Report is classifying and describing general classes of phenomena. While Factual Description is describing a particular living, non-living or natural phenomenon.
For more complex explanation, descriptive reports give information about something; they describe what something is or does. They characteristically use technical terms and present tense, and they build technicality through noun groups. The structure of a descriptive report is General statement followed by Description.
