Verbal Irony: a Discrepancy Between What Is Said or Written and What Is Meant

To: All English faculty

From: Department Chair

Subject: Big Words

I have received another complaint from a

student. The student says her teacher uses

big words. I was sympathetic. I told her that college teachers sometimes use big words. I told her college students sometimes try to learn big words. She was not convinced. She was not satisfied. That is not good. Walt Disney teaches us that the customer is always right. We should do what Walt Disney tells us. That is why I ask that you not use big words. Thank you for not using big words.

Dramatic Irony Occurs When an Audience Perceives Something That a Character in the Literature Does Not Know

In the Greek drama

Oedipus Rex, the

audience is aware that

Oedipus has killed his

father and married his mother long before he

is aware of this situation.

irony of situation is a discrepancy between the expected result and actual results

In Kate Chopin’s “Story of an Hour,” the

protagonist is expected to fall apart when she

hears of her husband’s death in a train accident,

but instead she experiences joy. When her

husband walks in the door, instead of being

delighted as observers might expect, she drops

dead.
