Colloquial and Descriptive Language
When you are reading a book set in a past era you might come across language that is no longer used or used in different ways. In everyday conversation people use familiar expressions known as colloquial and idiomatic language. These types of casual expressions change over time. An author purposefully uses this type of language to capture the realistic dialogue of a group of people in a particular place and time in history.

Authors also use descriptive language, figurative language and imagery to bring the past to life and create imagery (mental pictures) for the reader. Through this language an author positions the reader to feel emotions and form opinions about the characters and events in the story.
