Semantic Devices By: Abby Dunne


Metaphor Figure of speech. "Life is a journey, travel it well…”


Simile A comparison between two things using the words LIKE or AS. “The tiger looked like statue we saw today.” “I cried as if I were a pool of water.”


Personification Figure of speech. Example: The marshmallow looked sadly at me.


Hyperbole Figure of speech in which statements are exaggerated. “My homework weighs 500 lbs!” “My dog has enough fur to make 6,000 blankets.”


Puns . A pun is a 'play on words' “That’s very punny!” “You quack me up” “You’re so much pun to be witth”


Oxymoron . Two words having no relationship or having contradiction are put together in such a way the set or such words give a different meaning. Example: deafening silence and sweet revenge. In early Greece, the word oxymoron meant "keen and foolish.“


Irony a pretense of ignorance and of willingness to learn from another assumed in order to make the other’s false conceptions conspicuous by adroit questioning —called also Socratic irony (Copied) “ Is it ironic that I posted a video about how boring and useless Facebook is on Facebook ?”


Alliteration The occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words. Hannah’s home has heat hopefully. Isaacs ice cream is interesting and Isaac is imbibing it. Jesse’s jaguar is jumping and jiggling jauntily. Kim’s kid’s kept kiting. Larry’s lizard likes leaping leopards. Mike’s microphone made much music. Nick’s nephew needed new notebooks now not never. Orson’s owl out-performed ostriches. Peter’s piglet pranced priggishly. Quincy’s quilters quit quilting quickly. Ralph’s reindeer rose rapidly and ran round the room. Sara’s seven sisters slept soundly in sand.
