Transcript of Connotation vs. Denotation CCSS 8

Connotation & Denotation
Denotation
a word's
definition
; dictionary meaning
Connotation
To
notice
and to
spy
both have similar denotations (to observe or see) but they have different connotations.

Notice
conveys a
more accidental
or
unintentionally

caught
idea.
I
noticed
the sign in the window. (not really looking for it, but I happened to see it)
Spy
has more
sneaky
connotations. To spy implies observing
without trying to be spotted
.
I
spied
the sign in the window. (quickly and covertly spotting the sign - there may have been some hiding to do so)

Cheap
and
inexpensive
have the same denotation (not costing much), but they have very different connotations.
Cheap
conveys
low

quality
or
little

value
, but
inexpensive
has more
positive
associations-you're one smart cookie for snagging a bargain.
So what?
Objective:
(And Common Core Standard: Language 8.5c)
Distinguish among connotations (associations) of words with similar denotations (definitions).
a word's
associations
; implied meaning;
concepts

connected
with a word; all the
ideas

loaded
with the word
can be positive or negative
What's the difference?
When reading, look at
word choice
to fully unpack the writer's meaning. Why this word or that one? What connotations are loaded in the language?

When writing, use precise language to evoke the concepts, feelings, and exact meaning you want.
Examples:
The following words all have the same denotation but see if you can describe the differences in connotation. What's the difference between them?
eat
1. devour
2. nibble
4. gorge
3. snack
5. dine
cry
6. sniffle
7. bawl
8. tear up
9. sob
10. shock
11. intimidate
12. startle
13. terrify
14. panic
scare
Unpacking meaning
step 1. identify denotation - what is the basic meaning?
step 2. determine connotations - what ideas does the word evoke? What associations do you think of? What connections do you make? What does the word remind you of?
Example: home = location in which one lives
Example: home - family and loved ones, where one feels the most comfortable and accepted, "...where the heart is"
consume completely
starvingly gulp down
eat something whole
monsters or ferocious beasts in stories might do this
What is the difference between these two descriptions? What do they have in common?
For Rent: This tiny, old place has bland-painted walls and a cement pad for the backyard. Cheap place that needs lots of work.

For Rent: This cozy, vintage home has neutral-toned walls and an-easy-to-care-for yard. Bargain-priced fixer-upper!
