English > Year 4 > Literature > Examining literature > ACELT1606

Understand, interpret and experiment with a range of devices and deliberate word play in poetry and other literary texts, for example nonsense words, spoonerisms, neologisms and puns

Elaborations

  • defining spoonerisms, neologisms and puns and exploring how they are used by authors to create a sense of freshness, originality and playfulness (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • discussing poetic language, including unusual adjectival use and how it engages us emotionally and brings to life the poet’s subject matter, for example ‘He grasps the crag with crooked hands’ (Alfred, Lord Tennyson); ‘Wee ... tim’rous beastie’ (Robert Burns) (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
