The Three Types of Irony By: Tatiana M. Tavares Situational Irony Verbal
IRony Meaning of Verbal Irony: Examples of Verbal Irony: Don't get it confused!! Video of Situational Irony: Another example What is Dramatic Irony? Examples of Dramatic Irony:
Romeo and Juliet Dramatic Irony Definition: (n.) When the audience knows something
that the character(s) do not know about. Dramatic Irony is more for stories and is
often seen in HORROR films. A man who is a traffic cop gets his license
suspended for unpaid parking tickets...?! When something is said however taken
the wrong way. Always forgive your enemies-nothing annoys them as much. Verbal irony can sometimes sound
like sarcasm!

They are completely different!!!!

Sarcasm is seems like verbal irony
however it used in playful, harsh ways. When Romeo finds Juliet drugged to sleep, he thinks she dead and kills himself. When Juliet awakens to find her loved one dead, Juliet then kills herself. Another example... Alice in engaged to Bob. What Alice doesn't know is that Bob plans to runaway and marry Carole. The Dramatic Irony moment comes when Alice is shopping with her friends, sighing at wedding rings, while the audience knows that Bob is going to the airport to meet Carole. I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single world I am saying. I love talking about nothing. It is the only thing I know anything about. Meaning
Irony: When the audience expects something to
happen but something completely different
happens instead. Examples: Starting to understand?...
Alex expected her to be his
beautiful love when she really
is his morbidly, grotesque stalker, Rolanda !!! An ambulance driver goes to a night time bike
accident scene and runs over the accident victim
because the victim crawled to the center of the road with their bike. The End Video example:
It's HOT in Topeka!!! The Dramatic Irony there is that Romeo didn't know that Juliet was alive before he killed himself.

We knew that she was alive but he didn't. In this video, Alex is expressing his feelings about
the girl of his dreams.... Situational is more for movies and literature. REMEMBER!!
Verbal Irony implies and refers
to spoken words only!!! Thus, all of the Three Types
of Irony are special and unique
in their own ways.
