The Modalization. Modals.
Modalization attends the presence of the sender in the text. This presence is perceived through different linguistic elements called modals. Modals are unique texts with a distinctly subjective. Among the forms of discourse that have among their characteristics is subjectivity in the argument.
Modalizers elements are:
- The sentence modality and communicative.
- The evaluative lexicon.
- The figures of speech.
- Punctuation.
- The theming.
1. The sentence modality and communicative.
The sentence and communication patterns show the attitude of the issuer upon the statement and its intention for the recipient. The sentence and communication patterns are:
- Affirmative or negative.
- Question. (?)
- I cried. (!)
- Doubtful. (Maybe)
- To arouse desire. (Hopefully)
- Imperative.
2. The evaluative lexicon.
- Evaluative adjectives: adjectives are used with a subjective value (adj. specified and Adj. Explanatory).
- Nouns: Often will use derivative morphemes. Angelic mine!
- Adverbs and adverbial phrases (possibly, no doubt, of course ...)
- Verbs: be of thought, speech and feeling. (Think, say, feel ...)

3. Rhetorical figures.
- Metaphor. Match two like terms. (Her eyes are stars.)
- The simile. Comparing similar items. (The city looks like a sea of lights).
- The irony. Trick or otherwise statement of the obvious.
- Hyperbole. Obvious exaggeration. (I'll give the moon and stars).
-'s Reticence. Three dots are used to keep open the list and is the recipient who continues.
- The asyndeton. Suppression of conjunctions. (Gives a sense of speed, liveliness ...)
- The polysyndeton. Union of several unnecessary words or sentences with conjunctions (and gets up and greets, and embraces him.)
- The personification. Attribution of human qualities to animals or objects. (The TV smiles.)

4. Punctuation.
As modals, punctuation may manifest subjectivity of the issuer.
- Ellipsis. So called because among its main uses is to suspend the discourse.
-To indicate the existence in the course of a transient pause that expresses doubt, fear, hesitation, or suspense.
"To suggest, preventing their reproduction, phrases or profanity or inappropriate. Son of a ... done!
"When you want to leave the sentence incomplete and on hold.
"No value of interrupted speech, but with emphatic or expressive intention.
- Parentheses. They are used to insert a statement, further information or clarification.
- A dash. We use it to lock clarification or incised.
- Quotes. Used to play quotes that someone said, the quotes can function as a focuser.

5. The theming.
We understand theming everything that has to do with the information structure of text: the approach to the topic, the progression of it, including new information on that topic. The theming is the procedure by which a subject is introduced.
