1. Connotation and Denotation
Connotation and Denotation are big words that actually mean something small. Connotation is basically strictly what something stays. For instance you read the book," the Fault In Our Stars". and you repeat a line directly from the book. As for Denotation is when you say something but mean it in a not so nice way. Such as saying," Oh my god! Her hair is sooooo greasy!". You dont know if its a good or bad thing.
Point of View: first person, second person, third person limited, third person omniscient
Point of View has many different view points you can read or write from.
First person is when you write in your personal point of view such as "I, me, we, my ".
Second person is when you write in someone else's point of view using the words,"You, your, yours."
Third person omniscient is when you write using the words," He, she, it." It is also when you write in an outside character's point of view.
4. Types of Poetry: lyric, epic, narrative

lyric: uttered through the first person.
Commonplace assertion, opinion, fact
A commonplace assertion is an assertion that is held to be true by most people but not backed up with facts.
And Opinion is something that you think and can't be proven by anything.
3. Simile and Metaphor
A simile is where two things are directly compared because they share a common feature. The word AS or LIKE is used to compare the two words. Eg. As cold AS a dog's nose
A metaphor also compares two things, but it does so more directly WITHOUT using as or like. Eg. The shop was a little gold-mine.
