From readings of Language and Meaning – Michael Clarke- 2007.
Naming – Giving something a title that it can be recognised by.
“Fundamental activity of language” (Clarke. Michael 22)
Describing – Explaining details of something.
“Describing our visual experiences is, perhaps the most familiar practice…” (Clarke. Michael 22)
Context/Contextualising – Put in place to give understanding.
” Identifying the context of the object of attention is to locate it in a particular time and place… to include information of this kind in a commentary os to enlighten the reader and this can be useful especially when the object is from an earlier time, another place or both” (Clarke. Michael. 24)
Analysing – Critically examining something with logic and thought.
“Another way in which we are often made aware of significant aspects of an artefact…” (Clarke. Michael. 24)
