Descriptive Text is a kind of text with a purpose to give information. The context of this kind
of text is the description of particular thing, animal, person, or others, for instance: our pets or
a person we know well.
It differs from Report which describes things, animals, persons, or others in general.
The Social Function of Descriptive Text is to describe a particular person, place, or thing.
