Pengertian Descriptive Text


Dalam artian luas, Description, seperti dijelaskan oleh Kane (2000: 352), diartikan seperti pada
kalimat di bawah ini :

Description is about sensory experience—how something looks, sounds, tastes. Mostly it is about
visual experience, but description also deals with other kinds of perception.
Jadi, jika disimpulkan dari penjelasan Kane di atas, tulisan deskriptif bermakna teks yang
menjelaskan tentang pengalaman yang berhubungan dengan pancaindera, seperti apa
bentuknya, suaranya, rasanya. Kebanyakan teks deskriptif memang tentang pengalaman visual,
tapi nyatanya pengalaman selain dari indera penglihatanpun bisa digunakan dalam descriptive
text.

"...... is a text which says what a


Namun secara khusus, descriptive text adalah,
person or a thing is like. Its purpose is to describe and reveal a particular
person, place, or thing."[teks yang menjelaskan gambaran seseorang atau benda.
Tujuannya adalah mengambarkan atau mengungkapkan orang, tempat atau benda tertentu]

Jadi, bisa dikatakan bahwa descriptive text ini adalah teks yang menjelaskan tentang seperti
apakah orang atau suatu benda dideskripsikan, baik bentuknya, sifat-sifatnya, jumlahnya dan
lain-lain. Tujuan (purpose) dari descriptive text pun jelas, yaitu untuk menjelaskan,
MENGGAMBARKAN atau mengungkapkan seseorang atau suatu benda.
Generic Structure dalam Descriptive Text
Ketika menulis descriptive text, ada beberapa susunan umum / generic structure(sebenarnya
tidak wajib) agar tulisan kita dianggap benar. Susunan tersebut adalah :

1. Identification : berisi tentang identifikasi hal / seorang yang akan dideskripsikan.

2. Description : berisi tentang penjelasan / penggambaran tentang hal / seseorang dengan


menyebutkan beberapa sifatnya.

Ketika kita menulis descriptive text, hal yang wajib kita ketahui adalah cara kita menyampaikan
deskripsi tulisan kita tersebut. Oleh karena itu pemahaman tentang adjective(kata sifat bahasa
Inggris) wajib kita kuasai.

Selain adjective, beberapa struktur bahasa Inggris yang berfungsi sebagai adjective pun harus
kita pahami agar penulisan descriptive text kita terlihat tidak kaku.

Contoh Descriptive Text tentang Provo
I have been in Provo for almost eleven months. I have seen winter, spring,
summer, and fall. Provo's winter is so beautiful. The mountains are covered
with a lot of snow. They look like many beautiful brides wearing wedding
dresses, and veils. In spring, Provo doesn't have many trees; when the snow
melts the mountains are bald as strong bald men. Summer in Provo is very
hot in the daytime. Last summer when I was walking under the sky, it was
like walking in an oven; the sun was like a fire that burned my skin. In
spring and summer the weather was always clear. I never used my
umbrella. Provo was like a huge clothes dryer; it is very dry in spring and
summer. In the fall the weather in Provo is very strange. One late
September morning when I woke up, the mountaintops was covered with
snow. Provo is a lovely and strange place. I love it very much.

Contoh Descriptive Text tentang Gitar


written by Jeremy Burden

My most valuable possession is an old, slightly warped blond guitar--the first


instrument I taught myself how to play.

It's nothing fancy, just a Madeira folk guitar, all scuffed and scratched and
finger-printed. At the top is a bramble of copper-wound strings, each one
hooked through the eye of a silver tuning key. The strings are stretched
down a long, slim neck, its frets tarnished, the wood worn by years of
fingers pressing chords and picking notes. The body of the Madeira is shaped
like an enormous yellow pear, one that was slightly damaged in shipping.
The blond wood has been chipped and gouged to gray, particularly where
the pick guard fell off years ago.

No, it's not a beautiful instrument, but it still lets me make music, and for
that I will always treasure it.
