Homework Help: English

Posted by Soh on Monday, October 3, 2011 at 1:08pm.

I have to analyze the use of diction and syntax in three authors specific works, but I'm unsure of how to anazlyze/explain these, exactly. I know that diction is the author's word choice and syntax is sentence structure, but I don't know how to pinpoint one's diction and syntax. For syntax could I just put something like "Old-English" with an example from the text? For diction I'm totally lost.

Thank you for the help
