This could include anything from Harper Lee's use of the colorful southern dialect, vocabulary specific to the time period and geographic location, to her wonderful use of imagery, simile, metaphor, etc. I would pick 3-4 four items on which to focus and find examples of each throughout the novel that you could use as evidence. You could also take this to a deeper level and discuss what these language techniques do for this novel. What does it do for the plot? How does it affect the reader? What does it say about Lee's style?
