Title: Advert verbal semiotics
Post by: vanilema on March 11, 2017, 08:30:58 AM
Hello everybody... I'm analyzing the verbal semiotics of a McDonald's advert... can someone halp me do this??
In the advert there's a bigmac laying on the bed and the it says: stop staring at me like I'm some piece of meat.
you can look but you can touch. ok. You can touch. But can you handle me? check out my dimensions. Two all-beef patties and juicy all over. ARE YOU MAC ENOUGH?

I also attached the advrt.

I should analyze it from the points of view of the interpersonal and ideational metafunctions

Sounds like a homework question.

Also, this looks more like puns than any sort of theoretical/structural analysis. Or at least that's what stands out.

If you have a specific question you can ask that, but the sort of 'can you do my assignment for me?' questions won't be answered here.

Additionally, the expectations for this particular assignment will vary based on instructor, textbook, etc., so we might not even be able to do a good job for you. I personally am not sure what exactly is expected here, because I'm not taking your class. Regardless, you should do this yourself. Maybe a study group would help so you can identify the expectations of the assignment?
