of the Week
word or phrase to add to your army.
A juxtaposition (jux-tih-poe-zih-shun) would consist of two very different things placed side-by-side to show their contrast. If someone served you a sour dill pickle next to a sweet ice cream sandwich, they would have served you a juxtaposition on a plate. When you see a cat playing nicely with a mouse, that would be a visual juxtaposition. Someone whispering in a loud room would be an auditory juxtaposition.
I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
