For this Discussion Board, please complete the following:
You are probably already familiar with the idea of “tone” in speaking, as in “tone of voice.” For example, the tone you use when you want to motivate someone can differ from when you are trying to apologize.
Tone is just as important in writing, where it can be impacted by our word choice, punctuation, and more.
For example, we all receive text messages every day. Text messages are unique—people use punctuation, abbreviations, emojis, and other writing choices to get their point across and convey a specific tone. Consider the following ways to say thanks at the end of a text message or in reply to someone:
- Thanks =)
- Thanks a lot!
- Thank you?
- Thank you!
Select two of these examples that you think convey different tones and explain what makes them different?
What is another word or phrase you’ve seen (in texts, emails, or other written communication) that can sometimes convey different tones to the audience?
