3 Simply put: Irony is defined as the difference between what is said and what is meant what is said and what actually occurs or between the meaning and what is understood.

4 Verbal Irony: A figure of speech in which what is said, is the opposite of what is meant. Dramatic Irony: Is when a reader/viewer of a work knows something that the character in the work itself does not know. Situational Irony: When a situation turns out differently than expected, yet somehow seems widely appropriate.

5 Verbal Irony is : A figure of speech in which what is said, is the opposite of what is meant. REMEMBER… It is all about SARCASM, one example would be, “That sock smells like roses” after it has been sitting in a gym locker for three months.

6 Psst ! Dramatic Irony is: when a reader/viewer of a work knows something that the character in the work itself does not know. In a horror movie, suspense is often built up by the use of spooky music. The viewers often know that someone is going to die or get ripped up, or, at least, something is going to jump out because of the music that THEY can hear--and, of course, the characters cannot.

7 Look here ! Situational Irony is: When a situation turns out differently than expected, yet somehow seems widely appropriate. You buy yourself something after months of saving and then someone gets it for you for Christmas!
