Today is Veteran’s Day.
Begin Tone/Diction/Imagery. We will have an assessment on this next week.
* diction: the author’s choice of words. Diction is heavily influenced by a word’s denotation (dictionary meaning) and connotation (emotional meaning).
* imagery: creating sensory experiences with words, often through figurative language
* tone: the attitude of the narrator toward his/her subject/characters, created by the use of diction and imagery
