  1. Saying less than is true.
  2. A narrative poem written in four-line stanzas, characterized by swift action and narrated in a direct style. Song or song-like poem that tells a story. Ballads often tell stories that have tragic endings. Most ballads have a regular pattern of rhythm and rhyme and use simple language and repetition. Generally they have a refrain-lines or words repeated at regular intervals.
  3. Contrast or discrepancy between expectation and reality. In verbal irony a speaker says one thing but means the opposite. In situational irony what actually happens is the opposite of what is expected or appropriate. Dramatic irony occurs when the reader or the audience knows something important that a character does not know.
  4. The way an author chooses words, arranges them in sentences or in lines of dialogue or verse, and develops ideas and actions with descriptions, imagery, and other literary techniques.
  5. Musical quality in language, produced by repetition. Rhythm occurs naturally in all forms of spoken and written language. Poems written in meter create rhythm by strict pattern of stressed and unstressed syllables. Writers can also create rhythm by repeating grammatical structures, by using pauses, by varying line lengths, and by balancing long and short words or phrases.
  6. Poetry that does not have a regular meter or rhyme scheme. Poets writing in free verse try to capture the natural rhythms of ordinary speech. To create musical effects, they may use alliteration, assonance, internal rhyme, and onomatopoeia. They also often repeat words or grammatical structures.
