Transcript of Descriptive and Figurative Language

Descriptive Language Guiding Question: How can we evaluate our use of language? Irony Imagery Onomatopoeia Learner Profile Focus: Communicator alliteration The repetition of the same consonant sound at the beginning of several words in a line of poetry or in a sentence. Mood The atmosphere that pervades a literary work with the intention of provoking a certain emotion or feeling from the audience. Tone The writer's attitude towards the material and/or reader.
Examples include playful, formal, intimate, angry, serious, ironic, outraged, baffled, tender, serene, depressed, etc. Three uses of irony:

1. Verbal Irony
Verbal Irony is when the speaker says one thing
but does another.
2. Dramatic Irony
This is used in a narrative when an event occurs whose significance the audience understands but the characters do not.
3. Situational Irony
Situational Irony is when something happens
and a reversal of expectations occurs. The use of pictures, descriptions, or figures of speech
such as METAPHORS and SIMILES to visualize a
mood, idea, or character. Example: In Romeo and Juliet when the character thinks that Juliet is dead but the audience knows she has only been knocked out by a sleeping potion.
