It is a formal and often lengthy discussion of a topic,
where concepts and insights are arranged in an
organized and logical manner.
It refers to the way how language is used to convey
meanings to propel action or provoke a specific
response.
It is often associated with speech, but it may also be
written.
It usually serves as a writer’s or a scholar’s analysis
of a concept or theory proposed by another writer.

proposed claim or
solution is better than
any other proposal.

FACTORS AFFECTING A DISCOURSE
1. Culture
The beliefs, customs,
attitudes, language,
and other things that
define culture may
influence the author’s
perspective on several
issues.
Knowing about the
culture the author
belongs to, the reader
may understand his or
her biases.
2. Social
Environment
The author’s physical
surroundings and
social relationships,
as well as the culture
of the time may have
influenced his or her
writing.
3. Experiences
Personal accounts or
first-hand experience
of events, though
subjective, establish
credibility and
reliability of
information
presented in any
discourse.
TYPES OF DISCOURSE
1. Argumentation
The writer aims
to persuade the
audience or
readers.
He or she
presents valid
claims or
counterclaims,
each supported
by evidence, to
prove a point.
In proving
claims, the
writer presents
studies,
experts’
opinions, and
statistical data,
among others.
Argumentative
discourse
should appeal
to logic or
reason instead
of emotion.
A recent study confirmed that playing video games may
cause children to become violent. However, this is only
true for some children. Dr. Charlotte Cooper and Dr.
Markey Vitasa of ABC University explained that
children who manifest a combination of three
personality traits―high neuroticism, disagreeableness,
and low levels of conscientiousness―are more likely to
be aggressive toward others after playing video games.
1. Argumentation
TYPES OF DISCOURSE
2. Description
Based on the main
impression of the
author about the
topic or subject.
His or her
impression is
influenced by prior
knowledge,
culture,
environment, and
experiences,
among others.
As the writer
describes his or
her observations,
it triggers sensory
images among
readers.
When I first saw my childhood friend Margarette, she
was about my younger sister Viv’s height. Her hair was
curly and dark, and her skin was pale. But what really
struck me when I first saw her was her big round blue
eyes.
2. Description

clarify, and explain

something is and

I remember the time when I learned how to swim. I was
only eight years old and afraid to bathe in a pool. I
envied the kids who played with inflatable balls and
animals. Whenever my family would visit the
clubhouse, I would sit beside the pool and never really
jump in to join them. A summer camp opened in our
neighborhood, and my mom thought of enrolling my
brother and me in a swimming class. Two days before
the class started, my mom gave me a pep talk; that
made me realize that I did not want to miss out on the
fun just because I was afraid.
4. Narration

Medea is portrayed as an empowered woman in the Euripides’ play. It is a
far cry from how women were viewed and represented in the Ancient
Greece. Women then were mainly portrayed as in charge of producing
children, taking care of them, and being a mistress of the household.
Medea’s character defies and challenges conformities. Her deeds, though
evil in nature, stem from the strength of her mind… Medea, although
elicits pity from the audience during the first part of the play as an
abandoned wife and mother, in the end, is feared and abhorred as she
proves to be aware of how wicked her deeds are and yet would not have
it the other way around: “I understand what evil I am about to do but my
wrath is stronger even than my thoughts…” (Euripides 27).
GENERAL FORMAT OF ACADEMIC DISCOURSE
• the writer states the significance of the topic and the issues that need to
be addressed
• the writer mentions the objectives of the discourse and how it may be
beneficial or detrimental
Introduction

• he or she then presents the findings and interprets them
• he or she formulates arguments and supports them with evidence
Body

Conclusion

linked logically.

organization and
development of the theme.
There is use of repetition, reference,
conjunctions, connectives and other
transitional devices.
“There are three reasons I don’t have a credit card. The first reason is that
using a piece of plastic instead of cash makes it too easy for me to buy things I
can’t afford. For instance, last week I saw a 4,000.00 php pair of pink sandals in
my favorite shoe store. Of course, I don’t need pink sandals, nor I can afford
them. With a credit card, however, I would now own those sandals and be
worrying about how to pay for them. The second reason I don’t have a credit
card is that I would end up in debt like my friend Sara, the shopaholic. Sara got
a credit last year, and she already owes 30,000.00 php. She buys things that
she doesn’t need such as jewelry and designer sunglasses. She will be in debt
for years. The third reason I don’t have a credit card is the difficulty in
understanding the fine print in the credit card contract. If I don’t read the fine
print, I can be surprised. For example, some credit companies will raise my
interest rate if I make a payment even one day late. To sum up, credit cards
may be a convenience for some people, but for me, they are plastic tickets to
financial disaster.”

Whenever my family would visit the clubhouse, I would sit beside the pool and never really jump in to join them. A summer camp opened in our neighborhood, and my mom thought of enrolling my brother and me in a swimming class. Two days before the class started, my mom gave me a pep talk; that made me realize that I did not want to miss out on the fun just because I was afraid. 4. Narration

  • 18. Medea is portrayed as an empowered woman in the Euripides’ play. It is a far cry from how women were viewed and represented in the Ancient Greece. Women then were mainly portrayed as in charge of producing children, taking care of them, and being a mistress of the household. Medea’s character defies and challenges conformities. Her deeds, though evil in nature, stem from the strength of her mind… Medea, although elicits pity from the audience during the first part of the play as an abandoned wife and mother, in the end, is feared and abhorred as she proves to be aware of how wicked her deeds are and yet would not have it the other way around: “I understand what evil I am about to do but my wrath is stronger even than my thoughts…” (Euripides 27).

  • 21. “There are three reasons I don’t have a credit card. The first reason is that using a piece of plastic instead of cash makes it too easy for me to buy things I can’t afford. For instance, last week I saw a 4,000.00 php pair of pink sandals in my favorite shoe store. Of course, I don’t need pink sandals, nor I can afford them. With a credit card, however, I would now own those sandals and be worrying about how to pay for them. The second reason I don’t have a credit card is that I would end up in debt like my friend Sara, the shopaholic. Sara got a credit last year, and she already owes 30,000.00 php. She buys things that she doesn’t need such as jewelry and designer sunglasses. She will be in debt for years. The third reason I don’t have a credit card is the difficulty in understanding the fine print in the credit card contract. If I don’t read the fine print, I can be surprised. For example, some credit companies will raise my interest rate if I make a payment even one day late. To sum up, credit cards may be a convenience for some people, but for me, they are plastic tickets to financial disaster.”
