The Importance of Denotation and Connotation
By Courtney H.
Hi! My name is Brianna. Welcome to my home! I will give you a tour! I hope you enjoy it! First, we will be going to the family room.
How was work today, Dad?
Good! But, the person I was working with was blue, so he couldn't really wrap his mind around what we were trying to accomplish.
So the guy you were working with, was the color of my shirt?
No, I'm talking figuratively. Connotation is important, because it's how you see something, and how you connect to it.
Oh! Now I see what you're saying. I was thinking about denotation. I'm going to go to Bella's room now.
Good! What's for dinner?
Chicken. And I'm not talking about a scaredy cat, but I'm talking about denotation, and that means the food, which comes from the bird.
Hi, Bella! How are you?
