Question:

Is it always better to use synonyms or a thesaurus in regard to popular verbs, diction, and turns of phrase when writing essays?

Grace H.
Answer:

While certain overused words or phrases may detract from the importance or factor of engagement, often times it is the structure of a sentence that dictates how information is presented and flows - and often times, how attractive it is to the reader, too.

Question:

How does the use of free indirect discourse shift how the reader perceives and understands a character?

Grace H.
Answer:

Since free indirect discourse provides a certain level of intimacy with the character it is written for, the reader's perception can be distorted with the internal biases of the character, since the point of view jumps between first and third person.

Question:

What is the difference between known and implied irony?

Grace H.
Answer:

Known irony, as the name demonstrates, is irony that is exposed to the audience directly and explicitly - although, the character is not always aware of this irony, creating a situation where the reader knows more than the character. Implied irony is implicit and never directly stated. Implied irony can be further categorized into several subcategories such as verbal, comic, and structural.
