    1. Ah, ah, ah, not so fast. Diction will always have some sort of effect. If it is an example of diction, we must justify why... what effect does this specific word choice have on the passage/reader?

    Repetition-
    "It had come up from the water for a reason, a good reason, and he must try to understand the reason....It had come up from the water for a reason, and the reason, he thought, squatting , the reason had to do with the pile of sand." (Hatchet, Gary Paulsen, pg. 93)

  11. Yaro- Motif
    I think that "Hatchet" is the motif because it has a symbolic importance in the story because his mother wields it to him as a gift which helps Brian survive and craft tools in the wilderness.
