Definition of Analytical Exposition Text

Definition of analytical exposition text is actually very easy to understand. Word “Analytical” means, “examining or liking to examine things very carefully” (Cambridge). That is, (examining or relating to checking / testing something carefully). Then, the meaning of exposition, I have explained in the article about hortatory exposition, that is “a comprehensive description” or a broad explanation.

Thus, the definition of Analytical Exposition can be understood as a text that tries to provide a comprehensive explanation of a problem by displaying the opinions that support it carefully.

While the main purpose of analytical exposition text is, “to try/attempt to influence the reader to believe something by presenting one side of the argument.” It means trying to convince the reader to believe something by giving one side of opinion only. ”

Referring to the purpose of analytical exposition, this does not mean that analytical exposition text contains only one argument, but contains various arguments that have the same purpose.

In school books in Indonesia often mentioned, Analytical exposition text is a text that elaborates the writer’s idea about the phenomenon surrounding. It means analytical exposition text is a text that contains an idea about the phenomenon surrounding. Of course it is also followed by some argument to support it.

Example of Analytical Exposition Text

Garbage Service need Improvement
There have been many complaints recently about the ABC garbage collection service. The official department has agreed that the service needs improvement. But nothing has been done!
In some streets the garbage is collected only once a month because the workmen are not supervised. In other streets, collection in more frequent but half of the garbage is left in the road. The workmen are too lazy to pick it up and put it in the trucks.
In some parts of the colony, house-holders are dumping their garbage on the waste land. This is dangerous and an unhealthy to do. These `dumps’ may catch fire and they will certainly attract rats and flies.
It is the duty of the official department to collect all the garbage efficiently and regularly.

The Importance of Library
I personally believe that libraries are among humanity’s most important institutions for several reasons.
Firstly, most of humanity’s collective knowledge is stored in libraries. Secondly, libraries protect and preserve this knowledge. They also classify or group the materials into logical and easily available divisions.
Furthermore, libraries make the materials available to everyone and even provide librarians to help us find what we need.
Finally, libraries are our link to the past and our gift to the future.
From the facts above, I conclude that libraries are important institutions for humanity.

Design of Electronic Device need Improvement
Internet access and e-commerce remains inequitable. Most of designs prevent disabled and older people to participate in the electronic age.
The barriers include the physical design of facilities, the cost of internet access and the design of interactive voice-response systems. The Human rights and Equal Opportunity Commission’s report on electronic commerce said that technology’s great potential for increasing access was not being realized.
The design of ‘advanced’ ATMs had made them harder for blind people to use, compared with earlier models. Machines that once had buttons now relied on screen displays, for instance. The commission also suggested that students with disabilities needed particular attention when educational material was provided in electronic form.
We emphasized that the designs of electronic facilities need improvement.

Building Strong Relationship
Since building Indonesian nation in 1945, Indonesia shared a positive and friendly relationship with Australia.
In 1947 Australia supported Indonesia’s struggle for independence by placing embargos on Dutch supplies, arms and troops. Australian dock workers went on strike and significant numbers of Australians demonstrated in the streets in support of Indonesian independence. The Dutch were unable to ship supplies through Australian ports during this period.
Much of the support Australians gave to Indonesians was based on the friendship that developed between Australian soldiers and the Indonesia people at the end of the Second World War. There was also a strong anti-imperialist mood among some sections of the Australian population at that time.
It is significant for Indonesia and Asian neighbors to strengthen the relationship.
