Definition of Report Text
The term report text often also known as informational report. Report, the Concise Oxford Dictionary 10th Edition, is defined as 1) an account is given of a matter after investigation or consideration. 2) a piece of information about an event or situation. If concluded, the language of the text is a text report serves to provide information about an event or situation, followed the investigation and careful consideration.
Definition of text report is also fairly similar to what is often mentioned in various books in English at the intermediate level, "Report is a text roomates present information about something, as it is. It is as a result of systematic observation and analyzes." [Report is a text which presents information about something as it is. This text is the result of systematic observation and analysis.]
Thus, the actual report and descriptive text have the distinction is quite clear, although they appear to be a "twin brother" though.
In essence, the report text is usually filled with facts that can be proven scientifically, OK ..
Generic Text Structure Report.
As with descriptive text, Report text also has only two common structures [generic structure] are:
General Clasification; statements that describe the common subject of the report, description, and classification.
Description: Tells what the phenomenon under discussion; in terms of parts, qualities, habits or behaviors; This section gives an overview of commonly occurring phenomenon, either of its parts, its properties, habit, or behavior. The point is the elaboration of scientific classification presented.
There is also some information on the generic text structure report, which includes:
Bundles of Specific Information
General information is the part that mentions the general information of the theme of writing. While Bundles of specific information, is the elaboration of general information.
I'm personally more inclined to agree with both generic structure, because it can make students more aware of the way to write text report.
Destination Report Text
Each article must have a purpose why the article was written. So is the report text. Some experts say that the purpose of the report is the text:
Its social purpose is presenting information about something. They generally describe an entire class of things, Whether natural or made: Mammals, the planets, rocks, plants, countries of region, culture, transportation, and so on.
If concluded, the purpose of the report is to convey information text observations and systematic analysis. The information described in the report text is usually general in nature, be it natural or buata like mammals, planets, rocks, plants, state, cultural, transportation, and so forth.
Grammar Patterns in Report Text
Each article must have its own characteristic language, if recount text and narrative text tend to have traits using simple past, then how to report text? Okay here's a common grammar patterns used in the text report, which includes:
Use of general nouns, eg hunting dogs, rather than particular nouns, eg our dog;
Use of Relating verbs to describe features, eg Molecules are tiny particles;
Some use of action verbs when describing behavior, eg Emus can not fly;
Use of timeless present tense to indicate usualness, eg Tropical cyclones always begin over the sea;
Use of technical terms, eg Isobars are lines drawn on a weather map;
Use of paragraphs with topic sentences to organisé bundles of information; repeated naming of the topic as the beginning focus of the clause.
General nouns, that is, an object (be it alive or dead) of a general nature. Just compare: Hunting dogs> <My dog. Hunting dogs are common, while my dog is special.
Relating verbs, the grammar is also called linking verbs. As to be [is, am, are: present], seem, look, taste, and so forth.
Timeless present tense is one time in the simple present markers such as "often, Usually, always" and others.
Technical terms, ie terms that include the text of the report. For example, on "music" then, the terms of the music should be there.
A kangaroo is an animal found only in Australia, although it has a smaller relative, called a wallaby, which lives on the Australian island of Tasmania and also in New Guinea.
Kangaroos eat grass and plants. They have short front legs, but very long, and very strong back legs and a tail. These are used for sitting up and for jumping. Kangaroos have been known to make forward jumps of over eight metres, and leap across fences more than three metres high. They can also run at speeds of over 45 kilometres per hour.
The largest kangaroos are the Great Grey Kangaroo and the Red Kangaroo. Adult grow to a length of 1.60 metres and weigh over 90 kilos.
Kangaroos are marsupials. This means that the female kangaroo has an external pouch on the front of her body. A baby kangaroo is very tiny when it is born, and it crawls at once into this pouch where it spends its first five months of life
2. What Is Thunder and Lightning?
Lightning is a sudden, violent flash of electricity between a cloud and the ground, or from cloud to cloud. A lightning fl ash, or bolt, can be several miles long. It is so hot, with an average temperature of 34,000° Centigrade, that the air around it suddenly expands with a loud blast. This is the thunder we hear.
Lightning occurs in hot, wet storms. Moist air is driven up to a great height. It forms a type of cloud called cumulonimbus. When the cloud rises high enough, the moisture freezes and ice crystals and snowfl akes are formed. These begin to fall, turning to rain on the way down. This rain meets more moist air rising, and it is the friction between them which produces static electricity. When a cloud is fully charged with this electricity, it discharges it as a lightning flash.
Many people call platypus duckbill because this animal has a bill like duckbill. Platypus is a native Tasmania and southern and eastern Australia.

Platypus lives in streams, rivers, and lakes. Female platypus usually dig burrows in the streams or river banks. The burrows are blocked with soil to protect it from intruders and flooding. In the other hand, male platypus does not need any burrow to stay.
