But if there are very strong words or words that express a lot of emotion in any of the chapters, then you can mark those down as the kind of diction the author uses in Fahrenheit 451. For example in my class we read some passages from a story( I can't remember the name) and we had to do the same thing except it was chapter by chapter, there were words like annihilate and obliterate, and very descriptive phrases that used similes. All of that was considered diction. Then we had to get into syntax which is a whole other story..
