Allegory is a wonderful way to tell a story. They're used for stories that teach ideas and principles. Usually with a moral outlook. Allegory is often confused with symbolism. Allegory includes actions and characters to stand in for ideas. Symbols don't tell a story. An example would be Plato's cave story: it tells how some people stand in ignorant chains and others see the light. Allegory allows people to express layers of meaning within there own stories. 
 
A literary example of allegory would be "Animal Farm", by George Orwell. 
 
“All animals are equal but a few are more equal than others.”
 

 

 

Symbolism uses ideas and aspects to designate deeper and more significant meaning within its structure. Using all kinds of objects such as animals, plants, colors, and material articles of all kinds. Pictures and writing using allegory, metaphors, and similes are used to express symbolic ideas.

 

Symbolism offers a way to communicate with double meaning. The literal self evident portrait and the symbolic one which contains a more profound meaning or action.

The video reminds me of Zoomorphism. Using animal or other material characteristics to associate with non-animal objects. These can include humans, gods, and other non-human entities.

The opposite of this would be anthropomorphism. Which assigns human qualities into animals and other objects. It's a great way to describe different charcters and create symbolic language to add spice to your illustrations.

A Double Entendre is a tool used as a figure of speech that has multiple meanings. Usually just two and associated with indelicate matters. The first sense being direct and simple while the second is ironic and suggestive in nature. They're used to articulate one thing while being oblique towards another.

The art of argumentation can be used against those who don't appreciate it's forms and structure as an art for distraction.
 
Skillful argumentation is an antidote to productive communication.  It offers a way to eliminate bickering, anger, fear, and all the trash that prevents decent control of oneself. It's both an informal and formal method of debate leading to agreement by examining claims and justification by focusing on the interaction of argument, Itself!.
 
I'd like to think humanity has upgraded itself since Homer, Aristotle, and the countless others who began the art of conversation. Setting conditions of claims and evidence and shifting it all around with inference and warrants. The whole point of reasonable argument is to look for resolution.  This only works, of course, with reasonable people. Closed minds and using physical force can obviously kill any argument, anytime!

Onomatopoeia are words that imitate the natural sound of something. I posted a thread that broadens this subject. They create emphasis on the senses helping the reader to hear the words they represent.
 
 
and I included a gallery to illustrate the concept.

Using the internet for social networking, blogs, and forums is a great medium to use Imagery. Instead of using just figurative language alone to represent ideas the new universe of cyberspace allows everyone to send out visual representations that also include a variety of visual aids. Along with auditory stimulus this goes a long way in creating images of communication.

Imagery in literature is used to convey mental pictures to the reader. It isn't just the visual aspect that creates true imagery. The other senses can be affected by Imagery too. Any word that appeals to the senses will aid the description. The trick is to create a graphic scene that appeals to as many senses as possible using simile, metaphor, and of course onomatopoeia.

Do you speak legalize? 
 
How about professions in business, medicine, or the military? 
 
Each of these have their own language. This is known as Jargon.  Communication within professional fields include their own types of hidden meanings and special understandings. Terms and phrases are usually created to describe their own type of language. Acronyms can be considered jargon because it was developed for the internet.
 
Slang, on the other hand, is an informal language that develops inside groups and communities. It can be used to identify members inside the zone of influence. Every group around the world uses slang and it is mostly spoken not written.
 
Internet slang is a type of slang used, and most often invented by internet users. Many internet slang terms are created in order to save time typing by abbreviating or shortening words and terms, in some cases extending to fitting long and well-constructed sentences into a more or less impractical acronym.

There’s no denying that Premier Estates intended this double entendre, especially considering the woman’s awkward glance at the glass before she removes it, further emphasizing its location.
 
The sexually suggestive message alone wasn’t enough to get the commercial banned, however. The agency determined that the joke, subtle as it may have been, was inherently sexist.
 
“The ad presented the woman in a degrading manner.”
