What is report text ?

Do you know about this animal ? Where do you usually find it ? Do you recognize the characteristics ? Before we discuss it deeper, lets have a look to the following information.

Report text is a text which is created to describe the way things are with reference to a range of natural, man-made and social phenomena in our environment.

A report text consists of two parts:
- General classification
( a sentence that tells what the phenomenon under discussion. Usually in the beginning of the text).
- Description
(describe what the phenomenon is like, in terms of: Parts, Qualities, Habits or uses).

The grammatical features are:
- Focus on Generic Participants
(Generic participants refer to all the members of a genus, class, group, or kind)
- Using simple present tense (unless the object was extinct)

Click the example of the report text can be seen on this pages.
