Form and uses of language
In this section we will consider how language can be used in different ways for different purposes. To do this we will use the theme of memorial and commemoration.

Through this we will see how he conveys meaning in different ways for different audiences using different forms. Following this we discuss more generally how different meanings can be convered using prose and poetic language.
