ELEPHANTS as Example of Report Text

Posted by Memahami Teks Bahasa Inggris on 28 December 2009

Banyak yang masih kesulitan mendapatkan contoh jenis teks report ini, termasuk saya juga hehe. Bukan karena tidak ditemukannya tulisan bergenre "melaporkan" ini tapi lebih karena jenis teks ini sangat mirip dengan descriptive text. Sehingga dianggap sulit mencarinya contohnya. Agar ada sedikit pencerahan, kita lihat contoh berikut!
Now let's see another example of  a report text. It is about elephants. A report text explains participants in general so it is not about a specific elephant.
Contoh-Example of report text-Elephant animal

An elephant is the largest and strongest of all animals. It is a strange looking animal which it has thick legs, huge sides and backs, large hanging ears, a small tail, little eyes, long white tusks and above all, elephant has a long nose, the trunk. An elephant is commonly seen in a zoo, it has hard found in it natural habitat.
The trunk is the elephant's peculiar feature. This trunk has various usages. The elephant draws up water by its trunk and can squirt the water all over its body like a shower bath. The elephant's trunk also lift leaves and put them into its mouth. In fact, the trunk serves the elephant as long arm and hand. An elephant looks very clumsy and heavy and yet an elephant can move very quickly.
The elephant is very intelligent animal. Its intelligence combined with its great strength makes an elephant a very useful servant to man. Elephant can be trained to serve in various ways such as carry heavy loads, hunt for tigers and even fight. An elephant is really a smart animal.

  1. confused... isn't it descriptive text instead of report text?
    will u gv me explanation...a deeper please...
    I'll be very thankful for it....
    hv a lovely day...

  2. Actually we are in the same boat. However the point from several sources says that report is describing general thing, group or class of thing while descriptive tends to describe the specific thing. Supposed we talk about the specific elephant, let's say my elephant, then it will be surely a descriptive text.
    However if u have another idea about what is descriptive, what is report text and how to differ them, I will be very happy if u let me know it in order to make better understanding about text types

  3. text report nya di ksih the purpose cama generis structure nya donk....

  4. ksih tetx generic strusture ny donk

  5. Report text is an informational text. It gives the detail information about the complete feature of the object
    Report text has the generic structure as:
    General classification: The general classification in that above text is the classification of animal called elephant. It is elephant in general not the elephant in certain place or certain elephant
    Description: it is the detail description of the "general elephant. in this report example, the elephant is described from physical appearance and the quality of "inside characteristics" such as smartness, well trained,etc
