VERBAL IRONY “Verbal Irony is when words express something contrary to truth or someone says the opposite of what they really feel or mean.” [1]This is an example of verbal irony because the ironing board really doesn’t like making clothes flat and doesn’t want to do it anymore, but he has no choice.

PUN “A pun uses word play for humorous effect.” [2] This is a great example of a pun because instead of qualifications, then since he is a koala bear he changed it to “koalifications”.

SARCASM “Sarcasm is the use of words that mean the opposite of what you really want to say especially in order to insult someone.”[3] People use this sarcastic remark a lot! This is because when someone says something that isn’t funny about you, then you say this. It really isn’t funny at all, and you aren’t really dying from laughter, therefore this is sarcasm.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
