11 figures of speech Table of contents Words or phrases that describe one thing in terms of something else. They always involve some sort of imaginative comparison between seemingly unlike things. Not meant to be taken literally, figurative language is used to produce images in a reader’s mind and to express ideas in fresh, vivid and imaginative ways. The most common examples of figurative language, or figures of speech, used both in poetry and prose, are simile, metaphor and personification.similemetaphorpersonification Example in Context

16 Irony Table of contents Situational irony: when a situation turns out differently from what one would expect — though often the twist is oddly appropriate: e.g., a deep sea diver drowning in a bathtub. Verbal irony: when a person says one thing, but means the exact opposite: e.g., “It is easy to stop smoking. I’ve done it many times.” Dramatic irony: when a character or speaker says or does something that has different meanings from what he or she thinks it has, though the audience and other characters understand the full implications of the speech or action: e.g., Romeo kills himself believing Juliet has died, while the audience knows Juliet is still alive. “Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?” Example in Context

29 Table of contents What is a pun? The following information is from the Pun FAQtory. In Italian, 'puntiglio' means "a fine point," hence a verbal quibble, and is most likely the source of the English "punctilious.“ A pun is defined by Webster as "the humorous use of a word, or of words which are formed or sounded alike but have different meanings, in such a way as to play on two or more of the possible applications; a play on words." Why do people groan when a pun is told? A pun is often considered obvious humor, since the person relating it is merely balancing the humor in it on a twist of a word's meaning or sound. Children love this type of obvious humor and can laugh at it without reproachments. Adults, on the other hand, are more likely to have a twinge of envy, and "why didn't I think of that?". It is this envy in adults that subconciously causes them to groan upon hearing a pun. As time goes on, it can only be hoped that we adults will eventually learn to react more like a child and less like a groan-up! There are different types of puns. Homographic puns make use of multiple meanings from a single spelling (e.g., "pen" for writing instrument or animal enclosure). These are also referred to as "antanaclasis". Homophonic puns use like sounds but with different spellings and meanings. This is also referred to as polyptoton. Examples of homophones are scent and sent, jeans and genes, waive and wave, and buy and bye. Slide 2Pun FAQtory Slide 2 Example in Context

30 Repetition Table of contents The deliberate use of any element of language more than once. This can be repetition in sound, word, phrase, sentence, grammatical pattern, or rhythmical pattern. Example in Context

35 Table of contents A comparison of two different things or ideas through the use of the words “like” or “as.” A definitely stated comparison where the poet says one thing is like another. For example… Example in Context

Repetition of similar consonant sounds. Words beginning with the same consonant sound. Words that sound like their meaning. Example in Context

37 Structure Table of contents The framework or organization of a literary selection. The structure of fiction is usually determined by plot and by chapter division; the structure of drama depends upon its division into acts and scenes; the structure of an essay depends upon the organization of ideas; the structure of poetry is determined by its rhyme scheme and stanzaic form.

40 Table of contents Symbol Any object, person, place, or action that has both a meaning in itself and that stands for something larger than itself, such as a quality, attitude, belief, or value: e.g., the land turtle in Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath suggests or reflects the toughness and resilience of the migrant workers. Example in Context

41 Synecdoche (metonymy) Synecdoche is a form of metaphor where part of something is used to signify the whole: e.g., “All hands on deck.” The reverse, whereby the whole can represent a part, is also synecdoche: e.g., “Canada played the United States in the Olympic hockey finals” Another form of synecdoche is when the container represents the thing being contained: e.g., “The pot is boiling.” In one last form of synecdoche, the material from which an object is made stands for the object itself: e.g., “The quarterback tossed the pigskin.” In metonymy, the name of one thing is applied to another thing with which it is closely associated: e.g., “I love Shakespeare.” Table of contents Example in Context

43 Table of contents It is not the same as subject, which can be expressed in a word or two: courage, survival, war, pride, etc. The theme is the idea the author wishes to convey about that subject. It is expressed as a sentence or general statement about life or human nature. The central message of a literary work. A literary work can have more than one theme, and most themes are not directly stated, but are implied. The reader must think about all the elements of the work and use them to make inferences, or reasonable guesses, as to which themes seem to be implied. Theme Example in Context
