the ethod is a a to fid iportat details ad organize thoughts
Steps for the method
1. List exact repetitions of words in the text and how many times it pops up, whatever repeats is
what it is about
2. List strands of similar words (polite and courteous)
3. List pairs of binaries and the most important ones by organizing contrasts (open, closed or
global, local)
4. Then choose one of the first three for each and expand upon it for a healthy paragraph and talk
about the significance as a whole
5. Find anomalies, eeptios to the patter or soethig that does’t fit
This method works as analysis of mental doodling
The method is to induce you to pay more attention of the details
