  • Three Types of IronyVerbal IronySituational IronyDramatic Irony

  • Verbal Irony

    Saying one thing, but meaning something else.

    Example: Nice clean water youve got here. When standing on the edge of a polluted river.

  • Situational IronySituational Irony: Occurs when a situation turns out to be just the opposite of what we expected.

    For example: When John Hinkley attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan, all of his shots initially missed the President; however a bullet ricocheted off the bullet-proof windows of the Presidential limousine and struck Reagan in the chest. Thus, the windows made to protect the President from gunfire were partially responsible for his being shot.

  • Dramatic IronyWhen the audience or reader knows something the that characters do not know.

    For example: In an action movie, we know, but the heroine doesnt know that the elevator cables have been cut on the elevator shes entering.
