1. Find examples of the following rhetoric functions. Underline cue words

a. Comparison and contrast: Brick compares favorably with stone as a structural material for its fire-and-weather resisting qualities and for the ease of production, transportation, and laying.

b. Description: The size of bricks is limited by the need for efficient drying, firing, and handling

c. Exemplification: for example, wedge-shaped bricks are sometimes employed in arch construction and bricks with rounded faces in columns

d. Cause/Effect: Bricks may be used in construction only in conjunction with mortar, since the unit is too small, too light, and too irregular to be stabilized by weight.

e. Chronology: Brick which has been used since the 4 th millennium BC, was the chief building material in the ancient Near East. The versatility of the medium was expanded in ancient Rome by improvements in the manufacture of both brick and mortar and by new techniques of laying and bonding. Employed throughout the Middle Ages, brick grained greater popularity from the 16th.

2. Compounds
