LANGUAGE a) Imagery language that causes people to imagine pictures in their minds, picture or photograph. b) Figures of Speech also known as figurative language, it creates figures (pictures) in the mind of the reader or listener. These pictures help convey the meaning and more vividly than words alone. We use figures of speech in “figurative language” to add colour and interest, and awaken the imagination. Figurative language is everywhere, from classical works like Shakespeare’s and the Bible, to everyday speech, pop music, and television commercials. Figurative language means something different from what it says on the surface.

c) Diction the selection of words in a literary work. A work’s diction forms one of its centrally important literary elements, as writers use words to convey action, reveal character, imply attitudes, identify themes, and suggest values. We can speak of the diction particular to a character, as in Iago’s and Desdemona’s very different ways of speaking in Othello. W e can also refer to a poet’s diction as represented over the body of his or her work, as in Donne’s or Hughe’s diction.

    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.
