Process Writing on Descriptive Text

08 May


What is Factual Descriptive Text?

It describes a particular person, place, or thing. Its purpose is to tell about the subject by describing its features without including personal opinions. A descriptive text differs from an Information Report text, because it describes a specific subject rather than a general group. Examples of Factual Descriptive texts include:

  • Description of a particular building,
  • Description of a specific animal,
  • Description of a particular place, and
  • Description of a specific person.

Structural Features of Descriptive text

Typically, a Descriptive text has an opening paragraph introducing the subject of the description, followed by a series of paragraphs (in form of text) or information (in form of paragraph). Each of them describes one feature of the subject. There can also be a final concluding section that signals the end of the description.

Grammatical Features of Descriptive text

Descriptive texts usually include:

  • Verbs in the present tense
  • Adjectives to describe the features of the subject
  • Topic sentence to begin the paragraph and organize the various aspects of the description.

Scaffold of Descriptive text

  • The statement introduces the subject to the audience.
  • It can give the audience brief details about when, where, who, or what of the subject.
  • The paragraph usually begins with a topic sentence.
  • The topic sentence previews the details that will be contained
A series of information (Body of paragraph)
  • An information should describe one feature of the subject
  • The paragraph builds the description of the subject
A concluding statement (Closing)
  • The concluding statement signals the end of the text.

      Hi Pratiwi..
      according to me your text is interesting. It has complete for information and the sentence is good.
      From it, I can know about Selekta clearly. It fit with purpose.
      But.. I just correct you’re writing.
      You should write ‘af’ with ‘of’ -> “if the all of flower in blossom is very beautiful..”
      just a bit mistakes..

    Provenance of durian from Asean. Durian also coming under temporary fruit.
    The shape of this fruit is oval. But sometime we find it with circle shape. And the skin of this fruit unflawless like apple and orange , but he has thorny peel.
    When every people smell this feature of Durian from long distance, they can know if in their around within a durian. Because the durian’s smell is special.
    But, even there many weakness in Durian from the peel and smell, but don’t be on a doubt that the taste is very delicious. And every one gave chase to find it.
    And from this fruit, we can take the moral for our life. That, don’t see someone from their outside performance. But from inside their hearth.

    Durian is fruit chased by most people because the feature of delicious taste.

      hmmmp, i think your discriptive text about durian is good. it is interesting for me. you can discribe durian clearly, as your purpose. there is no part that can make me confused. but, i think there is a little mistake. you shouldn’t explain about the moral value from durian. it just diskriptive text. i also don’t agree if you say that durian has delicious taste. cause i really don’t like it,,hehe^_^.
      so far, it can give me an interesting information….
      thanks a lot 🙂

All of the people exactly know if sushi is famous food in japan. We can found it in japanese restaurant and absolutely expensive price. All of people and chef were agree if sushi is both delicious and healthy food as well as has nutritious because it is low fat and high in omega-3 fatty acids; the Nori/ seaweed contains iron, the vegetable contain vitamins, and the rice contains complex carbohydrates. Sushi has 3 main ingredient, they’re: shari, nori/ seaweed, salmon. Shari is japanese rice mixed with dressing consisting of rice vinegar, sugar, salt and occasionally kombu and sake. Nori is black seaweed wrappers and type algae. The last, Salmon is rich in Vitamin D. Sushi usually can be main coast or dessert.
