Connotation vs Denotation

By Jonathan Ayer

The differences and nuances between denotation and connotation are a popular topic to cover and review when discussing English grammar. Even after students are taught the difference in the early stages of learning, it is important to continue the discussion as word choice becomes more imperative in the mastery of writing, and word recognition is increasingly important to engage advanced reading. In order for students to best understand and apply the use of tone in writing and literature, they must have a firm grasp of the distinction between what words denote and connote.
