NOTICE/ WARNING/ CAUTION

Functional text is used for everyday information. It is called functional because it helps you function in your day- to- day life. For example, if you wanted to know your friend’s phone number, you would look in a phone book. If you wanted to say something to someone who is absent, you would leave a message. If you took a medicine, you would need to read the directions.
