What's the assignment about?

Are you asking about semantic, phonological, or syntactical? or other types?

Depending on what you're doing, you could do some of the more interesting ones. Puns, diction, patois, enjambment, alliteration, assonance, etc etc.

adding on to what he has already said..

exposition
denouement
imagery
personification
tone (like the feeling of the piece, e.g the tone of war story would be sad, melon collie)

Dramatic irony, bathos, sibilance, rhetorical devices such as tripartite lists, pronouns, intensifiers, modifiers. There are loads.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.
