Onomatopoeia
This story uses onomatopoeia in a different way than most. Instead of using the words in a single sentence, such as: CRASH! BOOM! or THUNK! Poe instead uses them as descriptions. Such as the
ringing
in the narrator's ears at the end.
Euphemism
He states that the old man had no pulsation, which is indirectly stating that the old man had died.



"I took for the concealment of the body", which is stating that the man was going to bury the body, which later is true.
