I want to know about the ways of using English in advertisement. Could you please give me some websites to take some more references?
Thank you so much
Thank you for your help. I tried the information you gave me, and they're really wonderful. Could you give me some further details of the ways using words in advertisement, 'cos I find that the topic is so wide for me to make a home assignment. I want to narrow it. For example, the ways of using nouns in advertisement etc.
Thanks in advance.
How about approaching it another way- you choose a couple of ads from the internet and put links up and then we can look at the language being used together.
- "I'm lovin' it."
- "Coke adds life."
- "Drive happy!"
- "Drivers wanted."
I want to know some common way of using nouns or noun phrases (maybe the verbs or adjectives for instance) in advertisement, or sometimes they only use the phrases to express what they like. For example "make the impossible possible", "when diamonds are no longer enough" etc. Why do they use them? How do they can be used in an advertisement (operators, modifier, or subject etc) ?
P/S: I'm tending to make an assignment on ESP. And I find it's hard to start. So I chose this topic. But because it's too broad, and I cannot think of anything else. Now I don't know what to do. My assignment only has about 23 to 30 pages, cannot be longer. So please help me to begin.
P/s again: I thought about this topic just by chance. If you could suggest me a more interesting one, and if you could help me in finding references for it, I would change my topic.
Thank you so much.
I presume they use ellipsis likethis because the answer is obvious,or requires thought. As the idea of an advert is to grab the reader, viewer or listener, using an incomplete sentence, knowing that it will be completed, is gaining a foothold in the mind of the target consumer.Originally Posted by thanhhienmt
