TYPES OF TEXT: TRADITION, FORM & FUNCTION - THE POEM Every day we encounter thousands of words. They come at us, and from us, in many forms. How do we understand the message based on the form in which it comes? How do we decide which forms to use? We study some of the different types of text around us, and their conventions. This unit covers poetry and poetic writing.
