    Diction is the choice and use of words and phrases in speech or writing.

    I think ya guys are missing something here, "colloquial language" is informal ;) think that makes the answer pretty obvious

    Well with the way grad point is, things can get slightly confusing for me. But I would think that the diction would be formal, rather than informal.

    It's still vague enough to make the asker refer back to the question and find which one it is

    Diction can be anything formal and informal. It's the word choice the author makes which "characterizes" his/her tone.

    In other words, diction defines tone, which many people choose to describe as formal, informal, etc.:) Happy learning
