Literary Terms and Devices

BC Ministry of Education Terms needed at the EN10 Level (these terms may/will be tested on the Provincial Exam in June!) Click Here!

NOTE: If you are in Grade 11, you are expected to know, be able to recognize and understand all of the terms from EN10 Provincial Literary Terms and Devices List. You should also start working with the EN12 Literary Terms and Devices List. Terms need to be reviewed on a regular basis. Consider using Quizzlet — links available to this study resource are on my site. Also, if you need to access definitions to the terms and devices, there are resources for this on this page.

IF THERE IS A TERM OR DEVICE ON THE REQUIRED MINISTRY LISTS TO WHICH YOU CAN NOT LOCATE A DEFINITION FROM THE RESOURCES ON THIS PAGE, BRING IT UP IN CLASS. YOU MIGHT ALSO WANT TO DO A LITTLE RESEARCH ON YOUR OWN TO FIND THE DEFINITION AND AN EXAMPLE.
