Pengertian Report Text and Examples

Report text is one kind of genre of descriptive text into categories. Report definition text itself is
a genre or type of text trying to describe something like objects, humans, plants, animals and
other things that are still very common. So do not focus on one thing, but all the objects that fall
into the category. For example we're talking about the elephant, then we will discuss the nature,
shape, character elephants in general.
B. Differences Report Text and Descriptive Text
How to distinguish between text and descriptive text report is easiest to see if something
described the general or specific. If something is common, it is the type of text a report. But if
the special, the kind textnya is descriptive.
For example, the descriptive text explanation I give the example of Borobudur. In it explain
how the form of Borobudur Temple, located and when made. So just focus and specifically
describes an object called Borobudur. Another case when I explained about the temple. So I will
explain the shape or model of the temple in general as to what, then the temple is a place of
worship religion and so on. So I explained the temple in general, be it a temple of Borobudur,
Prambanan, Mendut and so forth, not specific and focused.
In addition, the text usually reports usually describe something with a scientific standpoint. So
that would be followed by an explanation of the results of the study or observation of the object
being discussed.
C. Objectives Report Text

observation or research and analysis systematically. Bottom line text Report contains facts an

ensure that the results of research carried out scientifically.

F. Contoh Report Text dan Penjelasannya

Contoh 1: Komodo Dragon.

Komodo dragons have thrived in the harsh climate of Indonesias Lesser Sunda Islands for
millions of years, although amazingly, their existence was unknown to humans until about 100
years ago.
Reaching 10 feet (3 meters) in length and more than 300 pounds (136 kilograms), Komodo
dragons are the heaviest lizards on Earth. They have long, flat heads with rounded snouts, scaly
skin, bowed legs, and huge, muscular tails.
As the dominant predators on the handful of islands they inhabit, they will eat almost anything,
including carrion, deer, pigs, smaller dragons, and even large water buffalo and humans. When
hunting, Komodo dragons rely on camouflage and patience, lying in wait for passing prey. When
a victim ambles by, the dragon springs, using its powerful legs, sharp claws and serrated, sharklike teeth to eviscerate its prey.
Animals that escape the jaws of a Komodo will only feel lucky briefly. Dragon saliva teems with
over 50 strains of bacteria, and within 24 hours, the stricken creature usually dies of blood
poisoning. Dragons calmly follow an escapee for miles as the bacteria takes effect, using their
keen sense of smell to hone in on the corpse. A dragon can eat a whopping 80 percent of its body
weight in a single feeding.
There is a stable population of about 3,000 to 5,000 Komodo dragons on the islands of Komodo,
Gila Motang, Rinca, and Flores. However, a dearth of egg-laying females, poaching, human
encroachment, and natural disasters has driven the species to endangered status.

A. Definition Procedure Text

Before explaining about the generic structure, characteristics and procedure text for example, I'll
start this explanation of defining procedure text either in English or in Indonesian. "Procedure
text is a text that is designed to describe how something is Achieved through a sequence of

4 cups vanilla ice cream

2 cups milk

4 teaspoons chocolate sauce (optional)

Now, follow these steps to make a milkshake.

1. Place milkshake glasses into the freezer. Using cold glasses will help the shake stay cool
to give you time to enjoy. Leave for up to an hour if possible.
2. Soften ice cream. It is easier to make a shake when the ice cream is slightly soft. Take the
ice cream out of the freezer a few minutes before making your shake.

3. Place the ingredients into a blender. Mix the ice cream, milk and added flavors into the
blender. Blend on high for one minute. Dont leave in the blender for longer or the shake
will melt quickly.
4. Pour shakes into frosty glasses. Take the glasses out of the freezer as soon as the blending
is complete. Then pour the shake mixture in.

somehow the straw adds to the flavor and the experience.
If you do not have a blender, you may substitute with a mixer, but be careful as it could be
messy. And if you do not have anything else to mix, just use a spoon, but let the ice cream thaw
first to make the milkshake easier to mix. Enjoy your milkshake.

A. Definition, Purpose, Characteristics, Descriptive Text and Examples

Before looking What is the definition of descriptive text as a whole, let us understand what is
meant by the word descriptive itself. Descriptive is an adjective that if we mean in Indonesian

means that the description (picture). If you were asked to describe an object, it means you have
to describe the object in question both in the size, color and so forth. According to Wikipedia, is
a Descriptive text is: "one kaedah data processing effort into something that can be expressed
clearly and precisely with the aim that can be understood by people who do not directly
experience it for yourself." So what is meant by descriptive text is an article or text that describes
the properties inherent in something, be it humans, animals, plants, or inanimate objects such as
houses, cars and so forth.
B. Purpose Descriptive Text
Judging from the above understanding, then in fact we are able to understand what is the purpose
of descriptive text. Another goal is to describe everything be it human, animal, plant or inanimate
objects with properties attached to it such as size, type, color, and so forth so that the reader or
the reader can figure out what something is out of the picture we convey even though he has not
never seen.

C. Struktur Text (Generic Structure)

Descriptive text mempunyai aturan tersendiri dalam penulisannya, termasuk dalam struktur atau
susunan yang harus ditulis secara urut. Jika kamu diminta untuk membuat descriptive text, maka
pastikan susunannya adalah sebagai berikut:
1. Identification: Bagian ini pada paragraf pertama tujuannya adalah untuk
mengidentifikasi sesuatu yang ingin dideskripsikan atau digambarkan. Penjelasan
mudahnya, indentification berfungsi untuk memperkenalkan kepada pembaca tentang
objek atau sesuatu yang akan kita gambarkan sebelum kita beritahu tentang sifat-sifatnya.
Tujuannya agar jangan sampai pembaca salah orang. Kita mau menggambarkan mobil
misalnya, tapi pembaca mengiranya motor.
Contoh: kamu diminta untuk menggambarkan mobil barumu, maka isi identification-nya
adalah: Ayahku baru saja membelikan mobil baru. Mobil ini sebenarnya sudah lama aku
idam-idamkan, tapi baru sekarang ayahku membelikannya. (Berarti yang akan
digambarkan adalah mobilku, bukan mobil orang lain).
2. Description: Bagian ini pada paragraf kedua dan seterusnya berisi tentang sifat-sifat
yang melekat pada sesuatu yang sudah kamu kenalkan pada pembaca pada paragraf
Misal (melanjutkan tentang mobil di atas): Mobil baruku ini merupakan mobil sport
keluaran terbaru dari Toyota. Jumlah bangkunya hanya dua, satu untuk sopir dan satunya
untuk penumpang, begitu juga dengan pintunya. Mobil ini bisa melesat hingga kecepatan
500 km/jam, hampir sama dengan kecepatan pesawat berjenis Foker.

D. Characteristics Descriptive Text

These characteristics are important for you to take into account when writing the descriptive text
is not wrong. So make sure you use the following features when using the genre will write
descriptive text:
Using the Simple Present Tense. Why use the simple present tense? this is because we will
describe a fact or truth that is attached to something or someone. And one of the functions of the
simple present is to illustrate a fact or truth (eg fact: the sun is hot). Therefore, you should always
use the first form of the verb (verb-1).
Your example will illustrate the properties of your new car: The color of my car is black, it can
run up to 500 km / hour.
Because its function is to describe something by explaining its properties, then the descriptive
text will be found many adjectives (adjective), as handsome, beautiful, tall, small, big, or if the
adjective is derived from the verb, then you will find additional -ve, -ing, -nt in tow,
Create (create)> creative (smart people make something).
Interest (interest)> interesting (something interesting)
In the descriptive text we will often find Relating verb (copula) which is (as in characteristic
number 1). In Indonesian is often interpreted as "is". Because the purpose or function descriptive
text is to describe, then definitely we will often find the word was (is). His name is Andy (his
name was Andy), his height is 160 cm (height is 160 cm).
