The reading progression for Language and Text Features reflects the fact that adults need knowledge of these features in order to read with understanding. Language features include the syntactic functions that words have (for example, as verbs, nouns, adjectives and adverbs), the forms of words (for example, in terms of tense or singular and plural forms), the rules of grammar that govern how words are put together to form sentences, clauses and phrases, and the complexity and length of sentences.

The text features of written texts vary depending on the form or type of text and include the length and layout of the text, the different parts of the text and the cohesive devices, such as the sequencing of paragraphs, that link the text.
