This is in continuation of the previous lesson in which we learnt the origin, meaning, usage of the words in the sentences and the words as adjectives of words like Anticlimax, Smilie, and Redundance. This lesson covers words like Analogy, Ambiguity, Cliché, Euphemism, Epigram. Reema has explained every word by using them in sentences so that you can grasp the meaning and remember the words clearly.
