VOCABULARY WORDS FOR REVIEW Hyperbole – exaggeration or overstatement for emphasis Personification – giving of human qualities to an animal, object, or idea Simile – a comparison of two things using like or as.
VOCABULARY REVIEW Metaphor – a comparison of two things does not contain the word like or as; instead, it says that one thing is another. An extended metaphor compares two things at some length and in several ways. Symbolism – a person, place, object, or an action that stands for something beyond itself
NEW VOCABULARY Onomatopoeia – use of words whose sound suggest their meaning Analogy – a point-by-point comparison between two apparently dissimilar things made to clarify a certain point about one of them. Allusion – a reference to a famous person, place, or work of literature o Biblical – from the Bible o Literary – from literature o Mythological – from myths
NEW VOCABULARY Sound Device – using the sounds of words to create a feeling, image or emphasis Alliteration – a repetition of sound or letter at the beginning of words used to emphasize particular words and to give their writing a musical quality. Rhyme – a repetition of sounds at the end of words. The most common form is end rhyme, where the rhyming words occur at the end of lines.
New Vocabulary Irony: the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning: the irony of her reply, “How nice!” when I said I had to work all weekend. Example: Alanis Morissette, Ironic
