English ILL Valence Leung

8:00pm - 8:30pm


What I did:

I researched about literary terms.

What I learned:

Literary terms are describing words for forms of writing. It is the typical structures of writing that is used to convey meanings simply. When used properly, can evoke appreciation of literature.

Common literary elements include plot, setting, protagonist, antagonist, narrator, narrative method, dialogue, modd, theme etc.

Common literary techniques include personification, hyperbole, imagery, similes, metaphors, irony, alliteration, allegory, etc.

An example would be: 
Irony: the use of words where the intended meaning is the opposite of what was expressed.

~The bread is so soft i could pass as a brick.

~How nice of you to break my phone!
