General Sequence for Describing “Unfixed”
Objects –
Things that are portable and unattached to any surface
such as accessories, small appliances & food items
The amount and kind of information you give in describing an object
depends on the purpose of your description. It also depends on how
familiar your listener is with the object you describe. Your purpose
and/or emphasis will affect the sequence you use, but in general,
follow this sequece to describe how something looks:
1. Name of object / material
2. Color or relevant parts
3. Basic shape and size, using NMS
4. Hold basic shape as reference point – describe designs,
features or attachments
5. Show how to use or handle object, if relevant
Unit 11
General Sequence for Describing “Fixed”
Objects –
Things that are attached to the floor or ceiling, or are not
normally moved around
The basic sequence is the same as for and unfixed object, but will vary
according to the following categories of objects:
1. Columnar things that stand upright from the ground – describe
bottom to top (floor lamp, pole, tree, fire hydrant…)
2. Large, bulky objects on the ground – describe basic shape top
to bottom, then add details (fridge, dresser, stove, mountain…)
3. Columnar things that hang from the ceiling, describe from ceiling
down (ceiling fan, chandelier, mobile, icicles, stalactite)
4. Objects that are an unusual size or shape, or are too large to
describe in their actual dimensions are abstracted into a smaller
size (sofa, rocking chair, sports car…)
Unit 11
Determining Proper Perspectives for
Description
1. Describe from front: Object has a definite front and back (TV,
computer, radio, blender, dresser, sofa…)
2. Describe in neutral space: Object has no definite front or back
(dining table, coffee table, toaster, pots & pans, basket, plant,
lamp…)
3. Describe from rear: If object is usually used from the rear, show how
it is handled (camcorder, binoculars, camera, microphone…)
4. Describe from a sitting position: If object is usually seen from a
sitting position, describe attachments (foot rest on recliner, arm
rests, controls on a car, bike or motorcycle…)
5. Describe on you body: If the object is used on a person’s body,
describe as if you were wearing it (clothes, glasses, cap, gloves…)
