(Denotation)

2. What you know

(Connotation)3. What it means(combine Denotation and Connotation)

slide4

What you see

Two policemen (a French and a British) are arresting a German criminal.

Police are normally GOOD people who protect us, even if they sometimes have to use violence.

What it means

The Allies are morally IN THE RIGHT in what they do with Germany.

The German criminal looks a violent, nasty character; he has done something very bad.

What you know

Criminals are usually BAD people who do bad things for which they need punishing.

What it means

Germany was to blame for all the loss and damage of the War – and should be punished.

What you see

The policemen are tying up the German criminal with ropes labelled ‘Armistice terms’.

What you know

If criminals are not punished they will carry on with their crimes.

What it means

The Allies are RIGHT to be strict with the Germans, who are dangerous and evil.

What you see

The German criminal is complaining – but only to wriggle out of his punishment.

What you know

His words are as evil as his deeds – they are not true.

What it means

The Allies can ignore Germany’s complaints about the Armistice.
