hey whats up, well im a gr.11 student... and today we were asked to write a paper up for the class on different topics. I was given understatement...what info should be on this paper? The topic, the definition, some examples....can u help me out with some other ideas...thanks....
I'm not keen on doing students' homework for them when they really should be thinking for themselves, but this should help:
The opposite of hyperbole, understatement is used to make something appear smaller or less important than it really is. It can be used to entertain or to reduce the importance of the truth.
Can you think of some examples of understatement?
