Transcript of The Three Types of IRONY

The Types of IRONY
There are three types of irony:
1. Situational Irony
2. Verbal Irony
3. Dramatic Irony
Situational irony occurs when the opposite of what you expect to happen ACTUALLY happens.
1. A police officer who is arrested for committing a crime
2. A pilot who is afraid of heights
3. An escalator at a gym....really??
Verbal Irony
Verbal irony occurs when a speaker says the OPPOSITE of what he/she really means.

Dramatic Irony
Dramatic irony occurs in books, plays, and films when the audience knows something that the characters do NOT.

The audience can see that there is a shark about to attack the swimmer, but the poor swimmer has NO idea.
