  1. occurs when a character or speaker says or does something that has different meanings from what he or she thinks it means, though the audience and other characters understand the full implications of the speech or action: e.g., Oedipus curses the murderer of Laius, not realizing that he is himself the murderer and so is cursing himself.
  2. is the perspective from which a narrative is told.
  3. is a circumstance or set of circumstances that prompts a character to act in a certain way or that determines the outcome of a situation or work.
  4. is a comparison of two unlike things not using "like" or "as": e.g., "Time is money."
  5. occurs when a situation turns out differently from what one would normally expect-though often the twist is oddly appropriate: e.g., a deep sea diver drowning in a bathtub is ironic.
  6. is a play on words that are identical or similar in sound but have sharply diverse meanings. They can have serious as well as humorous uses: e.g., when Mercutio is bleeding to death in Romeo and Juliet, he says to his friends, "Ask for me tomorrow, and you shall find me a grave man."
