Palin's people churned out some crafty responses. Via examiner.com 1. "Joker" highered.mcgraw-hill.com Connotative LanguageSome words have similar meanings but evoke different tones and associations. Poets, like this one, choose words not only on literal definition (denotation), but also their connotative sense. Via gawker.com 2. "President.She should be." en.wikipedia.org Scriptio ContinuaThe omission of spaces is rare, but evokes a particular hurried sense. Could this poet be calling for Palin's candidacy in 2016? Via politicscultureandotherwastesoft.blogspot.com 3. " , at this dinner each year" rhetoric.byu.edu EllipsisEllipsis take space where words are omitted. The resulting effect is usually one of longing, melancholy, or momentary suspense... In this poem, the ellipsis provide a sense of layering ideas, culminating in a powerful critique of the event. The absurd punctuation certainly has the feel of an ee cummings poem. Via zazzle.ca 4. "Terrible joke" en.wikipedia.org Thesis, Antithesis, and SynthesisIn this provocative line, this poet proposes an idea (thesis), negates it (antithesis), and brings about an entire new understanding (synthesis). Via dailymail.co.uk 5. "Obummer" merriam-webster.com MalapropismThis poet demonstrates how using a wrong (but similarly sounding) word can be humorous. The exclamation points in this poem support a lighthearted takeaway. Via us4palin.com 6. "So help you obama ?" poetsgraves.co.uk InversionUsually a reference to swapping syllables, this poet rearranges words to more dramatically question the helpfulness of the subject "obama." Emily Dickinson often wrote with inverted word order. Via telegraph.co.uk 7. "Panties" highered.mcgraw-hill.com MetaphorA broad device, metaphor compares unlike things and expands the understanding of a concept. Here, the poet uses a common phrase to symbolize the uptight nature of politicians. Via themudflats.net 8. "I like her" rhetoric.byu.edu AntanaclasisA basic form of repetition, antanaclasis refers to reusing a word to a new effect. Here, the poet uses "like" as an adjective in the first clause and a verb in the second. The repetition sounds lyrical and helps to express the speaker's enthusiasm about liking her. Via nypost.com 9. "Kayla" poetsgraves.co.uk ApostropheOften directed at inanimate objects or someone who is not present, apostrophe breaks normal speaking patterns through an exclamatory address. Here, the speaker addresses "Kayla" directly, but likely speaks to a broader audience, expressing intense frustration. Via nydailynews.com 10. "Sexy woman" highered.mcgraw-hill.com Irony"A discrepancy between what is said and what is expected next." This speaker surprises the reader by liking the sexy woman because of her intelligence. Via news.yahoo.com 11. "Porn prom" highered.mcgraw-hill.com AlliterationRepetition of consonant sounds can lead to comedic wordplay. Via blogs.rockymountainnews.com 12. "And I Actually Thought" highered.mcgraw-hill.com Free VersePoetry without metrical or rhythmic pattern is usually considered free verse. Without boundary, free verse poems play with capitalization, spacing, and (as seen here), theme.
