5 Irony Open the “Irony” document on iTeach. Define Irony: a figure of speech in which words are used so their intended meaning is different from the actual meaning. It may also be a situation that may end up in quite a different way than what is generally anticipated.Everyday examples:I posted a video on YouTube about how boring and useless YouTube is.The name of Britain’s biggest dog was “Tiny”.You laugh at a person who slipped stepping on a banana peel and the next thing you know, you slipped too.“Oh great! Now you have broken my new camera.”
6 Types of IronyVerbal Irony - when people say the opposite of what they mean.Example: “Oh yes, please give me more homework!”Dramatic Irony – when the audience knows something the character does not know.Example: In horror films, the audience usually knows there is a crazy killer in the room, but the dumb blonde doesn’t have a clue.Situational Irony – when the opposite of what you expect is what happens.Example: The Titanic was called “unsinkable” and on its first journey, what does it do???? Yep, it sinks.
