Therefore, these types of non-fiction texts often have a good structure, so the reader knows what to expect and does not get confused.
Additionally, these types of non-fiction texts also use words which are not ambiguous, as it is important that the meaning of the text is clear to the reader.
The article plays a lot on pathos. It does so by writing about all the sad things that are happening in her life. e.g., at lines 11-15 page 2.
