例 1 Each transfer weight advantage and power into real, all round performance at prices we know won’t freak you out.
在这则广告中，freak out 是一非正式词组，意思是精神恍惚，极度兴奋（尤其指吸毒之后），它在此的意思是frighten（使人害怕），或是scare 的意思。
例 2 What’s more, during our new appliance sale we’ve knocked up to 50% off top name brands.
例 3 Keep the frog out of your throat.
在许多广告中，使用了大量的俚语和非正式的词汇，使广告显得通俗活泼，给人留下深刻的印象。如在一件外衣的广告中，为了强调该外衣的特色、衣袋设计的不同凡响，甚至可以防盗，文字是这样的pity the pickpocket （可怜那些三只手吧），其中pickpocket 就属于口语体，相当于汉语中的”三只手”或”扒手”。假如把它换成thief（贼），效果就不如pickpocket 生动有趣。
专有名词的使用在广告中也很广泛，利用名人或名地等可以增加广告的说服力，引起读者的注意。如 This is one place Mick Doohan will never race. 中，Mike Doohan 就是一位著名的赛车手，这是本田汽车公司的广告，意思是”这是一块连Mike Doohan 都不去比赛的地方。”又如，From the country that brought you Alain Delon: a new range of traditional cast-iron pots and pans, with smooth bottoms for use on all types of hob. 广告中Alain Delon （阿兰·德龙）也是一位著名影星。
1） 祈使句 这是出现最多的句型。
例 1 Ask any one who owns one. （汽车广告语） 询问一下有这种车的人吧。
例 2 Lay down your arms.（桌子广告语） 放下您的胳膊吧。
例 3 Please do not leave it too late. 事不宜迟。
2） 一般疑问句 通常用在广告的前面。
例 1 Have you ever dreamed of ascending the steps of a great temple built to the gods? （旅行社广告）您是否梦想过登上为众神修建的宏伟庙宇的台阶？
例 2 Can a tired, overworked voice command attention in class? 一个疲惫、过劳的声音能吸引全班的注意力吗？

Brand new business parks. Four-star conference facilities. Backed by 14 years’ success in helping business to relocate, set-up, prosper, expand.
4) 比较级 比较级在广告中用得非常多，这是由于英语广告中有大量的形容词和副词做修饰语的缘故。
例1 Today in business fast is no longer fast enough, even faster is still too slow to keep pace with the incredible demands placed on people and the computers they work with. That’s one reason why IBM developed P60/D. 60MHz 64-bit Pentium Chip computers so fast, so powerful, it makes today’s conventional computers like they are moving at a snail’s space.
例2 These days succeeding in business means getting more competitive and making tougher decisions.
例3 The new Minolta Riva Zoom 105EX is the most compact camera in a very prestigious class.
例4 In short, the stronger your character, the brighter your future.
5) 直接引语 在英语广告中直接引语出现得很多，原因：一是直接引语使得广告显得形式活泼、新颖；二是采用直接引语从心理学的角度看可以增强说服力。
例1 “It’s like we’re all in the same office. The office just happens to be spread across 7,000 miles of ocean,” Tom Hughes MIS Director, Construction.
例2 “Through the NVQ initiative we have discovered talents and competencies we would never otherwise have known about.” Says Ian McDermot of Philips Components in Blackburn.
例3 “I was afraid to drive in the snow. Not great when you live in Alaska.” Fortunately, Carol Kineaid, who lives in Anchorage, saw a Suzuki 4-door Sidekick on display and decided to give it a try. “From the time I got behind the wheel, it was the one for me. You sit up so high, like you have so much control.” With four-wheel drive and 1.6 liter, 16-value engine, it’s understandable. And her snow-o-phobia? “My Sidekick just goes right through it, I never knew what I was missing.” Apparently, husband John knew exactly what he was missing. “He wanted to drive my Sidekick from the moment I got it, but I just said, ‘no way’.” There was only one thing left for John to do. “You should have seen the neighbor’s faces when he drove up in his Sidekick,” Carol reports. Who knew that after raising two kids, John and Carol would have twins?
