2.1.1 The sound device used in these stanzas is rhyme. (1 mark) 2.1.2 Rhyme is a sound device characterized by the repetition of the same or similar sounds at the end of two or more lines of verse. The rhyming scheme helps to maintain rhythm, evoke emotion and create patterns that enhance the theme and mood of the poem. In essence, rhyme is a sound technique that lends music to words. (2 marks) 2.1.3 The words where the sound device has been used are "birdie" with "my," "high" with "sky," and "dreams" with "sunbeams." 3.1.1 Coherence, in my understanding, is the logical and meaningful connection or consistency of ideas in a text. It ensures that ideas flow smoothly from one sentence to the next or from one paragraph to another, thereby offering the reader easy understanding and interpretation of the text. (2 marks) 3.2.1 In the sentence, the phrase ‘but we never' serves as a conjunction that provides contrast between the two independent clauses. It shows that the sentiment expressed in the second clause is surprising or unexpected given what is stated in the first clause. These clauses are cohesive in that they both deal with the same topic (the relationship between the two actors) but from different perspectives. (2 marks) 3.2.2 'Hence' is a conjunction in this context. It shows causality or the reason why the judge handed the trafficker a heavy sentence. 'Hence' literally means 'because of this,' referencing the preceding clause about human trafficking being an abominable act. (2 marks) 3.3.3 I love dogs, yet, I am allergic to them. (The cohesive device underlined is 'yet'). (2 marks) 3.3.4 'Yet' is a coordinating conjunction used to introduce a contrast or contradiction between two clauses. It demonstrates a relationship of conflicting ideas between having a love for dogs and having an allergy to them. (2 marks)
