Uddrag

Nedenfor kan du se et kort uddrag fra vores study guide til teksten:

Title

The article has a title (also known as a heading): “More Than Coffee: New York’s Vanishing Diner Culture”. The title reveals the topic of the article: diner culture in New York. The inclusion of the word ‘vanishing’ hints that the author will focus on the fact that diners in New York are closing down and that he regrets this. The phrase “More than coffee” reminds readers that diners are not only about drinking and eating: they are also social hubs where people meet and interact.

The article also includes two pictures of Metro Diner, one of the successful diners in New York. The first picture comes before the title and the second is inside the article. The pictures try to convey the welcoming, casual atmosphere of the diner, as well as showing the retro aesthetic that diners generally follow.
