Text Hortatory Exposition

Bila kita mempunyai perbedaan pendapat dengan lawan bicara, pasti kita akan berusaha untuk meyakinkan lawan bicara kita agar setuju dengan apa yang kita kemukakan. Nah, jika pendapat dan argumen tersebut kita tuangkan dalam teks, maka jadilah teks analytical exposition.


Text exposition adalah sebuah teks yang membahas sebuah isu atau permasalahan dan membahasnya dari satu sudut pandang. Exposition dapat dibagi menjadi 2 jenis, yaitu: analytical dan hortatory. Bila analytical exposition adalah teks exposition yang tidak disertai saran (hanya menyertakan pendapat dan argumen), maka text hortatory exposition adalah text yang disertai saran.


Berikut ini adalah contoh dari text hortatory exposition:



Dear Editor,


We are writing to complain about ads on TV. There are too many ads, especially during our favourite programs. We think they should be stopped for a number reason.


First, ads are nuisance. They go for long tme and there are too many of them. Sometimes there seems to be more ads than programs.


Second, ads are bad influence on people. They try to encourage people to buy unhealthy products like beer, soft drink, candy adn chips.And they make people buy things they do not really need and can not afford


Finally, the people who make ads too much to say in the programs people watch. Thant is because they want to put  all their ads on popular programs that a lot of people watch. Some programs which are not so popular get stopped because they do not attract enough ads, even though those programs may be someone’s favourites.


For those reasons, we think TV station should stop showing ads. They interrupt programs. They give bad influence to people and they arbitrarily stop people’s favourite shows. We are sick of ads, and now we mostly watch other channels
