alliteration
ALLITERATION
  • Repetition of the same, initial consonant sounds
  • EXAMPLES: Soft Sighing of

the Sea

assonance
ASSONANCE
  • The repetition of the vowel sounds followed by different consonants in two or more stressed syllables.
  • EXAMPLE: As high as a kite in a bright sky
hyperbole
HYPERBOLE
  • A bold, deliberate overstatement not intended to be taken seriously. The purpose is to emphasize the truth of the statement.
  • EXAMPLES: He weighs a ton, I could eat a horse
imagery
IMAGERY
  • Usually these words or phrases create a picture in the reader’s mind. Some imagery appeals to the other four senses (hearing, touch, taste, smell).
  • EXAMPLES:
    • Sight – smoke mysteriously puffed our from his ears
    • Sound – he could hear a faint but distant thump
    • Touch – the burlap wall covering scraped his skin
    • Taste – a salty tear ran down his cheek
    • Smell – the scent of cinnamon floated into his nostrils
irony
IRONY
  • The general name given to the literary techniques that involve differences between appearance and reality, expectations and result, or meaning and intention.
  • EXAMPLE:
    • It was ironic that the police station was robbed.
    • It was ironic that the Olympic swimmer drowned in the bathtub.
    • It was ironic that the soldier survived the war and then was shot on his own front porch after returning home safely.
metaphor
METAPHOR
  • A figure of speech in which one thing is spoken as though it were something else, a direct comparison of two unlike things.
  • EXAMPLE: It is raining cats and dogs
personification
PERSONIFICATION
  • Figurative language in which a nonhuman subject is given human characteristics
  • EXAMPLE: The wind spoke her name
onomatopoeia
ONOMATOPOEIA
  • The use of words that imitate sounds.
  • Buzz, Thud, Hiss, Woof, Quack
oxymoron
OXYMORON
  • The junction of words which, at first view, seem to be contradictory, but surprisingly this contradictions expresses a truth or dramatic effect.
  • EXAMPLES: Pretty ugly, Icy hot
repetition
REPETITION
  • The use, more than once, of any element of language – a sound, a word, a phrase, a clause, or a sentence.
  • EXAMPLE: By Edgar Allan Poe

By the sinking or the swelling in the anger of the bells

Of the bells

Of the bells, bells, bells, bells

rhyme
RHYME
  • Word endings that sounds alike
  • Internal Rhyme – rhyme within a line
  • EXAMPLES: Time, Slime, Mime
  • Internal Rhyme – Scornfully scaly snake which held his very fate
simile
SIMILE
  • A comparison using like or as.
  • EXAMPLES: As brave as a lion, As dumb as an ox
