Watch Video Determining author’s tone User: n/a – Added: 10/27/16 YouTube URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYFbRam2jUE Definition of Tone: Tone is the attitude of a writer/artist toward a subject. Tone is generally conveyed through the choice of words, or the viewpoint. Written and visual pieces have a central theme or subject matter. The manner in which a writer approaches this theme and subject is the tone. The tone can be formal, informal, serious, comic, sarcastic, sad, or cheerful, or it may be any other existing attitude.
