IB English A: Language & Literature: Diction

Diction is a rather difficult concept to define, but one you need to be able to discuss in textual analysis. Diction is the writer"s choice of vocabulary, use of verb tense and style of narration. It could also be said that the tone of a text is established through use of diction. Perhaps the best way to come to understand diction is by discussing the importance of each word in a poem or passage of literature.
