Relationship and identification words

Relationship and identification words help you 'drill down' from a general topic to more specific areas. 

  • They tell you what part of the subject matter you should be concentrating on. 
  • They inform what type of information your topic requires, for example:
    • factual
    • statistical
    • historical
  • They also place limits on your topic
    • time period
Example question:
