Example:

"The fingernails scratched all the way down the chalkboard". Also, this literary device is different from Onotomotopiea, which means describing a sound in the word, such as "Boom" of "Kachow!". Cacophony are real words and phrases that make "harsh" and "annoying" or "negative" sounds.

so...

is this basically imagery but more, dark? (for lack of a better word)

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 11/09/2012 - 05:22
pretty much but more like

pretty much but more like just unpleasant rather than dark because of course saying that fingernails scratched on a chalkboard isn't necessarily dark, right?

Not the subject matter

It's not the subject matter which, heh, matters; the crux of the concept is the discordant sounds distinguishing it and setting it off.

Blast it! Press it! Put it in a can! Stomp it quickly, rap, rap, rapping it as fast as you can!

Btw. I'm a sixth grader . . . J/K :)

okay

It is very simple. These words are intricate, yet they represent things that are not intricate. Eighth grade and writing a report on literary terms and their uses.

What is the big deal with cacophonies anyway?

Why is this a no-no? I love a gritty, gory description. Isn't that what sells books? I can understand why journalists stay away from such descriptions but aside from that, go cacophonies!!!

Y U COMPLAIN SO MUCH?

What does it matter what grade, culture or origin you have? Trying to appear in a more appealing position for knowledge than the one before and asserting ignorance into them does NOT make you look better. Why don't you simply study and save the ridiculous comments?~
Cacophony:
Through a tattering and brutal path I went, the bullets splattering into the remains of my fellows as I rushed through, every step I took pounded as hard as machine-guns and stabbed me with unutterable pain.
Enjoy the example that I made up.

Posted by Anonymous on Sat, 09/15/2012 - 16:06
Not really

Just because they didn't focus heavily on the literary terms of grammar doesn't mean they didn't study Lang. And lit. Thoroughly.
