Emotional Appeal: "Six gut wrenching attacks."

Audience effect: These are words that provoke an emotional reaction from the audience.

Evidence: "...local Tadashi Nakahara lose his life at just 41 following an attack at Shelly Beach."

Audience effect: This helps support the argument, but also makes the argument stronger and easier to believe/agree.

Negative connotations: "These predators have been spotted within 50m of the shore, lurking, ready to say hello and take you as an afternoon snack..."

Audience effect: Negative connotations overexxagerate and effect the audience positively or negativity. This would put a negative view on sharks for the audience.

Figurative language: "...enjoying the beauty and tranquillity of the ocean."

Audience effect: This helps paint, or create, a picture on the readers mind.

Colloquialism: "...if his fighting instincts didn't kick in..."

Audience effect: This creates a conversational tone between the author and reader.

Rhetorical Question: "...one of these sharks thought your loved one looked like a tasty morsel and took them down in a murderous attack. Would that be ok?

Audience Effect: This can effect on how it helps lead readers to a particular conclusion.

Inclusive Language: "We can't hold back the tides, we can't stop erosion or turn off storms and we cant kill off all the sharks in a given region."

Audience effect: This helps involve and connect the audience to the argument, and author.

Family Values: What if you were at the beach with your son or daughter, your partner or your mother, and one of these sharks thought your loved one looked like a tasty morsel and took them down in a murderoues attack? Would that be ok? How would you feel then?

Audience effect: This connects the issue or point to the readers family values and opinions.

Euphemism: "...but instead given a life sentence."

Audience effect: The purpose of euphemisms is to substitute unpleasant and severe words with more genteel ones in order to mask the harshness, and this changes how the reader sees the point.

Tricolin: "Human callers, Leg maulers. Life destroyers."

Audeince effect: This is repeating three similar adjectives to emphasis a point that will often effect the readers emotions or make a point stronger,
