Descriptive and Figurative Language
Transcript of Descriptive and Figurative Language
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.
