Presentation Transcript


1. Denotation and Connotation By Brian Lodato, Jim Dunleavy, and Pat Amice

2. Denotation The dictionary meaning of a word or the idea that the word represents. For example, the denotation of the word modern is “belonging to recent times,” although the word may have different connotations.

3. Connotation The emotional associations of a word or phrase, as opposed to its exact meaning. “Greasy” has a denotation meaning slippery but also has a connotation when referring to a “greasy” person.
