TermDefinition
Dissonance Dissonance is the deliberate use of inharmonious syllables,words, and/or phrases in order to create a harsh-toned effect.
Assonance Assonance is the repetition of vowel sounds to create internal rhyming within phrases or sentences. Assonance does not have to be a rhyme.
Consonance Consonance is the repetition, at close intervals, of the final consonants of accented syllables or important words , especially at the ends of words, as in blank and think or strong and string.
Connotation Connotation is the associated or secondary meaning of a word or expression in addition to its explicit or primary meaning.
Denotation Denotation is the literal or dictionary definition of a word/phrase.
Iambic Pentameter Pent means five; therefore, a line of iambic pentameter consists of five iambs (five sets of unstressed syllables followed by stressed syllables).
Sonnet The most traditional format for a sonnet is a 14-lined poem with each line following the structure for iambic pentameter.
Second-person Sonnet A sonnet written in second-person point-of-view.
Oxymoron An oxymoron occurs when two contradictory words are together in one phrase. In fact, oxymoron translates from the Greek words oxy meaning sharp, and moron, which means dull. Thus, the word itself is two contradictory words pushed together.
Syntax Syntax refers to word order and the way in which it works with grammatical structures. As we are used to hearing things in certain orders, the effect of breaking with normal syntax is to draw attention to what is being said and the way it is said.
Allusion A brief and indirect reference to a person, place, thing or idea of historical, cultural, literary or political significance. It does not describe in detail the person or thing to which it refers.
Parallelism A literary device in which parts of the sentence are grammatically the same or are similar in construction. It can be a word, a phrase, or an entire sentence repeated.
Juxtaposition Placing two unlike elements together in text to contrast each other. Used to make a point.
