    1. Connotation vs Denotation The epic battle of the word!

    2. Connotation • is the emotional and imaginative association surrounding a word. • Conno= Connection • Ex: Home- safe, warm, protected, family, relaxed

    3. Denotation • The most specific or direct meaning of a word • Deno= Dictionary • Ex: Home-a house, apartment, or other shelter that is the usual residence of a person, family, or household

    4. Practice: • Using the words below come up with connotations and denotations for each. • Example: Tiger • Connotation: fierce, evil, hunter, deadly, beautiful • Denotation: large, carnivorous, tawny-colored and black-striped feline • Flower • Rain • Car • School • Ocean

    5. Using it in literature • Keep in mind authors use connotation and denotation all the time. One of the most famous authors who used connotation was Shakespeare. • Romeo: But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?/ It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. • Unless Juliet is a flaming ball of gas, she is not the literal definition of the sun. Rather she is warm, glowing, the center of his world, bright and beautiful. • Shakespeare uses the sun because people know the feel and look of the sun, so even if they have never been in love they understand what Romeo feels.

    6. Connotation continued… • The people who use connotation the most are poets. They have A LOT to say and very few words to say them. This is what makes poetry so freakin’ cool!  • On the next slide you will read the poem. • Write the words used as connotations. • Why did the author use these? • What did they make you think of? • How does this enhance the meaning of the poem?

    7. After Love   by Sara TeasdaleThere is no magic any more, We meet as other people do, You work no miracle for me Nor I for you. You were the wind and I the sea— There is no splendor any more, I have grown listless as the pool Beside the shore. But though the pool is safe from storm And from the tide has found surcease, It grows more bitter than the sea, For all its peace.
