    • 3. Denotation and Connotation
      • Denotation: this refers to the literal and primary meaning of a word—the definition that you would find in the dictionary
      • Connotation: this refers to a commonly understood subjective cultural and/or emotional association that some word or phrase carries, in addition to the word or phrase's explicit or literal meaning , which is its denotation .
    • 4. Connotation
      • A connotation is frequently described as either positive or negative, with regards to its pleasing or displeasing emotional connection.
      • For example, a stubborn person may be described as being either strong-willed or pig-headed ; although these have the same literal meaning ( stubborn ), strong-willed connotes admiration for the level of someone's will (a positive connotation), while pig-headed connotes frustration in dealing with someone (a negative connotation).
